Installing Wine

Goto System->Administration->Software Sources
Enable all software repositories under the Ubuntu Software and Third Party Software tabs.
Now, at a terminal, type in:

sudo apt-get install wine

Install the Wine gecko engine

At a terminal, type in:

wine iexplore

You will be prompted to install the gecko engine. Proceed with the installation.

Install Counter Strike 1.6

Proceed with the installation of your Counter Strike 1.6 (CS/CZ).
Now goto Applications->Wine->Browse C:\ Drive. Open Program Files->Valve->cstrike.
Now locate the files: download.htm and motd_temp.htm
For each of them, right click, Properties->Permissions and uncheck write permissions for your username (ie. mark them as read only).

Finally, execute the game, buy an m4 and give some headshots!

    Counter Strike has one problem with fonts using Wine. You should put that stuff here, in your post.

    The fonts are named Tahoma.

    I haven’t added any fonts to my ~/.wine/drive_c/Windows/fonts folder. I just have the msttcorefonts package installed. I have Tahoma in my fonts list. Though CS works fine.
    Can you please elucidate?

    the download.htm and the other file isn’t there…i checked….any other specific folder ??

    It is in the cstrike folder itself for version 1.6? I have it here. Maybe you might not have download.htm but the other file is always there.
