Unhappy New to Linux SuSE, need help downloading and installing a game.


Hello, I need some help on how to use SuSE 10 to downlaod applications. Currently I'm using BitTorrent as my download engine, but it seems like I'm not doing the right thing because after downloading the torrent I'm not able to open it. For example I have downloaded a game from BitTorrent and the application reads as follow [... piracy part removed], located in my home folder. When I right click the application to try to open it with Ktorrent it doesn't do anything at all.
Maybe anyone in the forum can help me with the situation, I will gladly appreciated.

Thank you.

That's illegal (you do know that downloading games is illegal right?). LQ.org has a very strong anti-piracy policy. Also, you will not be able to run .exe files in Linux. That is a Windows executable. You will need either wine or cedega to run Windows games in Linux.

And as Megaman said: please don't bring illegal activities here.


Cheers,
