Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide

I have the windows version of Quake 3 and decided to install it on my Linux box last night. I downloaded the point release script, copied everything from the CD into a directory I created myself and then ran the script to install it.
I thought everything had worked perfectly until Quake started. I then realized that my mouse didn't work. The buttons on the mouse work but I can't use the mouse to move around. I have done quite a bit of searching, but I haven't been able to figure out how to fix this.
I'm hoping someone out there has also installed the windows version of Quake 3 on Linux and might be able to shed some light on this.
I don't see where buying the full linux version would be any different; its the same binaries isnt it? I have the same issue with the dead mouse in Quake 3. Mind you, I have become quite good at defeating Xaero with the keyboard and debugging in the console at the same time. ;P
I had the same problem with the mouse, just get the 1.32b pointrelease for linux,install it and them copy the pak0.pak in the baseq3 folder or make a symlink to it to save HD space.
This is perfectly legal, as long as you get the pak0.pak from your cd
Hmm..hold on, let me check underneath my arm pit to see what version I have..linuxq3apoint-1.32.x86.run
I downloaded it a week ago. I'll check it out. Thanks for yer help. *8)

Haha, holy penguins. About 3 days after I downloaded my Q3 1.32 point release and had troubles with the mouse, they released 1.32b with it in the bugfixes.
I would never have picked up on that. Thank you d00d.
