games on mint

Postby gavoby » Sat Apr 18, 2009 10:59 am

Hi there,
if I decide to download a game from a torrent site like football manager 2009 for pc, is there any way to get it working on linux mint?
Thanks

You could try using Wine..

Code: Select all

apt install wine


No guarantees it'll work for any given program though.

Antivirus or defragging?

search for World of Goo. They make a Linux version. A demo is free (about an hour to beat the demo). Pretty fun, 20$ for the whole thing.
