Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

if you want to install Wine, it should be in the repositories.
Mint is based on Debian and Ubuntu, so you should be able to open a Terminal and type "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install wine" (without the quotes)
Or, you can open your Package Manager and find Wine to install from there.
First, Runemyth, runemyth and .runemyth are three different things. If the file is .runemyth, the period at the beginning would usually mean a hidden file in Linux. Also, case sensitivity, lower case r or capital R?
I went to the site again and I don't think it worked the way I did the first time but I didn't keep detailed notes the first time. This time, I went to the site and the first page was Terms of Service, click Agree and go to a new page with some image and three tabs at the center:
Play Webclient, Download Client, Auto Donation.
Clicking on Download Client gets the window asking what I want to do with the file, open or download. The file name is client.jar.
When I clicked on play webclient, a new window opened with a large black square (I guess where the video should be?) with several images . The one on the left was something about ipad, can't remember the one on the right and the one on the top said World of Lordcraft. Clicked on
that, Play Now tab and it open a new window asking for game account name and password. I stopped.
I don't think it happened quite that way the first time. Might be different because I set up a username the first time with password both of which I've forgotten? The images seem to be different on every login.
I remember a video playing the first time, like a game preview and I don't remember how I started the game. I didn't actually do anything.
I'm using Opensuse 11.2 but doubt very much that matters.
The reason I asked if you had Java enabled is because the Webclient file was a .jar file.
I have not been able to find anything named '.runemyth' and i don't know what the problem can be, if anyone here gets on the game with using Linux, tell me! And i still appreciate all the help i can get / Jonathan.
Yancek: Thanks for doing all that, when i click at Play webclient, i come to webclient and it loads a bit, then it sais
''connecting error - retrying in 5,4,3,2'' And it keeps doing that, and can Linux even download .Jar files im wondering?? and not only .Deb?
.Jar is a windowsfile, right? maybe i could open it with Wine then? / Jonathan.
.jar is a Java file. Java is supposedly cross platform, so it might run on Linux as long as the Java program doesn't try to access Windows-specific files. Run it like this from the command line:
java -jar path/to/jar/file.jar
The "Wine browse C:" thing doesn't mean that Linux has a C: drive. It still doesn't. Wine has a folder (.wine/drive_c) with a Windows-like folder structure in it and tricks Windows programs into thinking that folder is the C: drive. If you install Windows programs in Wine that's where they'll be.
Also, files that begin with a dot (.) are hidden. This is just a convention among file managers so that config files don't clutter you desktop for everyday work, not a part of the Linux file system. So be sure to check the "Show Hidden Files" option of your file manager to see them.
And to learn the command line, see the LinuxCommand tutorial, linked to in my sig. It's easy and friendly compared to most other tutorials.
xps. Did you ever go through the process of creating a user, password, email?
I just went to the site again, got the Terms of Service page, clicked I agree and get a new window with some chat thing in the center of the page and a lot of other links, etc.. Right above the chat window are the three tabs, PlayWebClient, Download and donate. Clicking the Download, I get a window asking what I want to do, open or download. I just cancelled so I don't know what would happen if I actually downloaded it. As I indicated above, it's a java archive file, client.jar. Clicking on the Play WebClient I get a new page blank square in the center, images on either side and at the top. Clicked on the top image, got a new page and clicked on something on the bottom, an image that had a Play button. It took me to a page asking for a username and password.
Never got the message "reconnecting error - retrying.
That's all I know. If suppose you've already created the user, etc..
