Angry Trying to run a game, but i can't find C: Drive?? (Linux Mint)


Hi! I got linux mint to start of with...

I've been trying to play this game ''Runemyth'' www.runemyth.com, when i try to run the webclient it sais ''Error, reconnecting in 33,32...''

When i had windows, i could just open The C: Drive and delete the '.runemyth' files and then it loaded succesfully.. But i can't find the C: Drive on linux mint, and i don't even think it exists? does it?

Iv'e been having this issue for a time now and i think it's intresting and i really want help to solve it Thanks! Jonathan.

Hi,

you are right, there is no such thing like a 'C:' drive in linux. Open a terminal and type in the following:
cd $HOME
ls -la

There you can look for '.runemyth'. It will be either a file or a directory.

No there is no C: drive names. In Linux you have only one root point for all drives and "letters" ie partitions called just "root". Other partitions are mounted in choosed directories. Anyway you can find 'runemyth' files or directories, somewhere in menu of file manager you must have 'find' command.

Acculy, it would mean alot to me if you could go on: www.runemyth.com

Click ''Webclient'' And let it load... and see what happends, and then press the guide how to solve the problem.. the thing is that theres a guide how to solve it but only for windows with C: Drive, not linux, not sure why but that's how it is.

Anyways i'd appreciate this alot! /jonathan.

I went to the site to test. Logged in, did the password thing, email address, etc. opened a game, watched a little preview, went to play one of the games (can't remember what it was called) and it started?

You said you were using Linux. There are well over 500 different versions of Linux so you need to let us know what it is, if you installed it you should know?

What browser are you using? Do you have Java enabled?

So what was the output? Is there a directory or file named .runemyth?
Typing just .runemyth probably won't achieve anything. I guess, you are not familiar with cli. So open nautlius (that is your file browser) and in the menu click on view -> show hidden files.
Now browse your home directory and search for file or folder .runemyth.

I don't think that trick from Windows will help you in Linux. Especially since yancek checked that this game works. On the Windows did you have the same message?

Error, reconnecting in 33,32...
For me it look like problem with connection or firewall. Type in cosole and post output:
Code:
sudo iptables -S

This sound stupid but.. I can't find ''Filebrowser'' I can just find ''Filesystem'' is it the same thing? well, in filesystem theres no menu as i can see :S.

If i go on Programs then wine..There is someting called 'Browse in C:'

In case it helps you guys any, I too tried the "Web Client" thing, and it did not ever work. I got a big white square, which never loaded (a flash video?) and then I got the "Error, re-connecting..." thing, which went from maybe 5 seconds to 30 seconds. The page didn';'t seem to work very well in general. I have no firewall running, and I allowed full javascript on the page. No workie..
Tried with and without cookies, no difference. And there's no file anywhere on my machine called "*runemyth*" or anything..

This is with Firefox, 64 bit on Slackware.

Good luck!!

Maybe it just doesn't work then.. That sucks but, theres also a ''Download client'' then i can download it, maybe if i run that with Wine it will work? Could you try that? beacuse i have to ask my father where i can find wine tomorrow, haven't found it yet :S / jonathan =).
