Hi All

Postby Bad Boy Bubby » Thu Feb 21, 2013 4:23 am

I am Bad Boy Bubby my gaming nick and one of my favorite movies

Been trying to get away from windows for quite some years but my gaming addiction (counterstrike) kept me there but with Steam on Linux finally I can move to Linux yay.

I have tried several times in the past with red hat and Debian and Ubuntu but I could never get counterstrike performing as it should under wine so ended up back @ windows. Anyways counterstrike source is running great under Linux Mint/steam on Linux :D. Just need them to port the new cs:go over which I'm sure will happen sooner rather than later.

I did try under kubuntu but had a few problems namely the steam client kept failing to update and I could not get the latest ATI drivers to install either. Thankfully both of these worked smoothly in Linux mint. So here I am.

Also spotted a few threads on the forum I thought I may be able to help with.

Running Linux Mint 17 KDE 64bit
Steam for Linux - Counterstike, Source and GO are my main games
Nvidia 750ti
Intel i5 Processor

welcome to the Mint family forums

The idea that Bill Gates has appeared like a knight in shining armour to lead all customers out of a mire of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he who, by peddling second-rate technology, led them into it in the first place.
