Cedega/Steam/HELP!


Hey,

I am kind of new at linux, but not really handicapped with computers so i can understand alot, i just need assistance, i have downloaded Cedega (as a setup file??) and installed, it goes through and says successful, it says its creating a path home/.wine/fake_windows (or something like that, im not looking at it right now). But when i check there is no path there.

Also i downloaded SteamInstall.exe, i type
cedega SteamInstall.exe
it doesnt give me an error but it doesnt do anything.

Very confused, i gave up on trying to figure it out myself. I need some help. Thanks!

In case you may not have known this is the syntax to view hidden files on the command line:

ls -a

.wine and anything after represents a hidden file.

Also check out this howto (that is if you have not already) for installing Steam and a few others.

Is the cedega you have the CVS version or did you pay for a subscription? I ask this because if you paid for a subscription the use of Point2play makes the installation of Steam and many others way easy. If your using the CVS version you can click on this link http://www.mithunc.net/grapevine/ for a free graphical frontend (like point2play) to make installing easy. And one more link http://www.liflg.org/ this is where you can get loki installers for many games instead of trying to do it manually on the command line.
