ive been trying to do that and it seems like the guide that is on ubuntu guide.org is for 6.06 or something because i dont have any of the options they mention on it.also when i checked for the core fonts today i came across this http://sourceforge.net/search/?type_...oft+core+fonts
now im not sure why but it seems like all of the times ive tried to install these there has been a problem.(?) and i got gstreamer from synaptic (it uninstalled totem.xine in order to do it) and unless i put a cd in the drive first it won't play any dvd's(when it does it says cdrom0 on the top of the totem player though)?as far as half life 2 im trying to use wine, but until i actually get the font installed correctly i cant do anything.according to this site hl2 and cs both are working with wine http://www.linux-gamers.net/modules/...DEX+Wine+Games
when i tried to just install the game from the disks i did the first one and the drive wouldnt open so i couldn't change to the second cd.?is this problem solved by copying the msi's that was done in fedora?(even though it didnt work for me there either.)one last thing ive done is i went to the list of proprietary drivers from ati,here
found the one compatible with my card downloaded it and now it cant be run.
gives me this error "Could not open the file/home/kyle/Desktop/ati-d…ler-8.35.5-x86.x86_64.run".while trying to open(gedit was trying to run that) is there something else that should be opening it?also while on the synaptic manager i checked for source and instead of a check it has this(-)when i check that the box becomes empty.is there no way to get source enabled or if so why doesnt it have a check/uncheck?
while trying to config wine this is what the terminal spit out
wine: could not load L"c:\\windows\\system32\\config.exe": Module not found
oh and the tahoma fonts i believe i have them on my system but i have no clue where they should be extracted to when i tried the fonts folder it gave me this
"Extraction not performed You don't have the right permissions to extract archives in the folder "/usr/share/fonts"." am i trying to extract them in the wrong place? what is the procedure for extracting/unloading rpm's and other files i downloaded to the system?
thanks to all who have any ideas.
