Hi, i don't see why to install it on root/quake3/baseq3/
The installler uses: /usr/local/games/quake3/baseq3 and it's worked for me fine since 2001.
I also fail to see why use wine to run it.
The link posted by Nylex is the way to do it imo.
I have some experience with q3a, here are a few simple reminders:
* Make sure you get 1.32B point release or mouse won't work http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d.php?t=409555
* Your config will be under /home/<username>/.q3a or .q3a/baseq3
* To install maps/skins place them under /home/BLAH/.q3a/baseq3 and mods under .q3a
* All mods work in linux. PB is kinda painful to update but so is in windows.
