Hello ubuntu community! If I could please get some help, I made the switch to linux last week and I am really enjoying it so far but I have a problem my novice mind cannot remedy.
I am trying to play a steam game (DoD:S and CS:S) using PlayOnLinux and the game starts up just fine but as soon as I join a server I am missing text and my mouse is unresponsive other than the left button.
Ok here is the deal. I have been running this video card fine on Vista and Windows 7 flawlessly. The reason I say this is so that you don't think the card is damaged or that the rest of my computer could not handle it.
I know that normally you would need to go into the Control Panel in Windows, but seeing as this is Linux, I don't think that will work. I was trying to install the .NET framework for a game I wanted to play. Now, I know people say that PlayOnLinux is much better, but the game's site said to use Wine (they don't have native Linux compatibility yet), so I chose to use Wine.
This simple tutorial will explain how to install Windows Internet Explorer 6, 7, 8 on Ubuntu using PlayOnLinux.
1. Install PlayOnLinux.
PlayOnLinux is a front-end for wine. It can be installed via Ubuntu Software Center.
PlayOnLinux installs the applications in separate virtual drives. Each virtual drive represents a different windows machine. I have configured PlayOnLinux on my laptop and installed several programs in it.
These programs go in the hidden .PlayOnLinux directory in home.
