Questions about applications and software
Hi I am new to linux mint. Now I am here and am happy to say I am pleased to see such a great distro in the works.
Well off to my question. I never installed something with a CD in Wine. I always had an exe file on the desktop and thats how I installed programs for wine. I am trying to install Starcraft in Wine, but not sure how to begin. Any ideas from anyone, maybe you have starcraft installed already who knows. Thanks in advance.
EDIT: What program mounts an ISO image like Dameaon Tools?

for games i actually use cedega transgaming, it cost a subscription to to the transgaming web site to download it, (but do a search at "certain" web sites and you can find it), and it works great, you can get it at http://www.transgaming.com/products/cedega/
. another thing you can try is winedoors. just look in synaptic for it.

I could never install 3d games on my computer in Linux Mint because I don't know how to install my nvidea graphics card properly. I've tried envy, but after installing and rebooting, Linux Mint fails to boot and then I have to reconfigure zorg with sudo to the standard graphics drivers that doesn't support 3d capabilities, which means I cant use beryl/compiz or play any 3d games through Linux natively or through Cedega. Could someone help me out.

molom - If the Nvidia graphics is capable, did you try uninstalling the previous driver first and then installing the latest Nvidia driver (from tty screen with envy -t if necessary)?
///edit/// on second thought why not post your: /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Somebody may be able to help. Maybe tseliot (did you search on posts by this member?).
