Trying to set up game on Linux


Hi all

Here's the deal, I am completely new to Linux and since my other lappy fried up yesterday I am trying to set up a specific game on this Linux OS (suse 11 or sth)

So, since I couldn't find anyone on the forum related to the specific game I will try it here!

Basically, from what I've found out on google I need something called WINE to run my game as if it was a win OS...

So far so good, bu when it comes to installing something or doing anything like this at all on Linux I'm just completley incapable.

So I guess my problem is: How to get Dekaron EU running on a Linux system that is on it's default configurations (I did system restore today).

Please help me - The guides / tutorials on the interwebz are like a different language to me .___. I tried to install WINE following the tutorial on their website but didn't get any far :/

Thanks a lot in advance!!!

Dekaron EU (aka 2Moons) is rated in the "Garbage" class on the Wine website, which translates to: Dekaron EU can't be played on Linux.
You will have to use Windows if you want to play this game.

Idk I actually found some info about people being able to run it using WINE...so yeah even if it means that it can't be run really smooth is it possible to set it up anyway?

If no I have 2 questions:
So a.) is there another program that can be used like WINE which would actually enable me to play Dekaron on Linux?
Or b.) is there a way to set up Windows alongside linux?

Again, thanks in advance!

According to the Wine website it does not run, if you have other info it would be nice to post a link.

a) No, Wine is the only way to run Windows programs on Linux.
b) Yes, you can dual-boot Windows and Linux: http://apcmag.com/how_to_dual_boot_l...lled_first.htm

A) I dont know any other Win Emulators,I think wine is the most developed.
B) yes, you can set up a dual boot. OR you can have Virtual Windows machine in linux (using VMware)and see if you can play...

Sorry but I have been clicking through a lot of sites all day trying to find helpful information, so I really don't remember where exactly I saw the info nor would I be able to vouch for the righteousness :/

Well if it is not too much to ask maybe you can help me set up wine? I have dld it (1.4.1) but when I try to install it this is what I get:

Running configure...

checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking for gcc... gcc
checking whether the C compiler works... yes
checking for C compiler default output file name... a.out
checking for suffix of executables...
checking whether we are cross compiling... no
checking for suffix of object files... o
checking whether we are using the GNU C compiler... yes
checking whether gcc accepts -g... yes
checking for gcc option to accept ISO C89... none needed
checking for g++... g++
checking whether we are using the GNU C++ compiler... yes
checking whether g++ accepts -g... yes
checking for cpp... cpp
checking for the directory containing the Wine tools... $(top_builddir)
checking for flex... no
configure: error: no suitable flex found. Please install the 'flex' package.


And I really have no idea what exactly the flex package is nor where to get it :/

EDIT "OR you can have Virtual Windows machine in linux (using VMware)and see if you can play..."
Tell me more please .___.

Please refer to the wine appdb to search for wine-compatibility info. You can find Dekaron page here.
The showstopper seems to be the gameguard anti-cheat system, which is known to not work in wine. Other games are affected by this.
EDIT: you're trying to compile wine from source and you're missing some development package (flex is a lexer generator). Try using Opensuse's own wine package. Read more here

Deka isn't been run by Gamehi anymore, so there is no gameguard engine anymore. Unless xign = gameguard?

a.) knut@linux:~/Desktop> sudo zypper install wine
Loading repository data...
Reading installed packages...
'wine' not found.
Resolving package dependencies...
Nothing to do.
knut@linux:~/Desktop>


b.) knut@linux:~/Desktop> su
Password:
linux:/home/knut/Desktop # zypper install wine
Loading repository data...
Reading installed packages...
'wine' not found.
Resolving package dependencies...
Nothing to do.
linux:/home/knut/Desktop #


Does that mean I am missing wine? It is on my desktop the way I dld and unpacked it :/

And thanks, but luck alone won't get me anywhere...think of this as talking your grandma through installing it...getting lucky is not an option

That just means you dont have the repository url in your package sources. You still can download it from here
http://software.opensuse.org/search?...upported=false

I think the one you need is wine12 and winegame but I am not sure hopefully somebody with wine experience can help you here. However if you find out which one you need install it by doing the one click install

good luck to you.

I wouldnt know what to advice here, hoever you could try the OpenSuse forum. Perhaps somebody there has already done it

Hmmm, can you tell me though, how to find out just what version of suse I have on my lappy?
I feel like that might help them guys a lot if I knew that .___.
