with my linux native UT2004 it has a file called ut2004.run on the DVD.

to install it I open a terminal window and run the following command:

sh /media/cdrom/ut2004.run

that starts an install script that asks some questions, i take the defaults and the game is installed to /usr/local/bin/ut2004.

you may have the same type of file on the CSS CD.
look for a file called css.run or something similar.
there should be a readme file or install document file on how to install the game on linux. It should have all the instructions you need.

:D

You'll find here how to install it with wine....

http://www.linux-gamers.net/modules/wiw ... OWTO+Steam

works like a charm, but it's no replacement for native enviroment... I get lower FPS, not to mention that graphics are not the same either... :?


I'd love to hear your experience tho... so post back how it's going. :D

also if you like css... try installing tremulous... it's in the repos...


I actually stopped playing CSS for some time to shoot at aliens for quite awhile with it... it's a great fast paced free game with lots of players on line and with great balance.

Beware though... it takes SKILLZ... I actually couldn't kill crap for a few days till I got my reflexes up to speed :) As an added bonus, I became a css headshot machine afterwards :)

can't help you atm since I'm just going out of the house... but DO try the IRC channels ... you'll find most of the crowd hanging out there... either mint or ubuntu channel ought to help you just fine...

just open up xchat or konversation and you'll beam into the mint channel immediatelly
