Game Install Problems

Post by Naring »

SOLVED


I have downloaded a few different games from the internet but when i have no clue how to install them. all i see is a blue dimond and when i double click on it i comes up with a box asking to choose a program to run it in. Two of the game i am trying to play are Runes of Magic and also Regnum. Can someone help me out or walk me through how to do this thank you.

What is the extension of these files you downloaded?

I am sure it is not deb. I believe is exe, in this case you will need Wine installed. You can install it through synaptic or software manager, just type wine.

Runes of Magic runs okay under Wine as far as I know. If Wine is installed correctly just double click the file or choose "open with Wine" and install it.

In the case of Regnum, there is a version for Linux. I believe that the one you have there. Drag the file with blue diamond shape in your home folder. Then right click on the icon and choose "properties" and make sure "allowing executing file as program" (or something like that) is checked. Then double click and you should be able to install the game.

Let me know if things works.
