Counter Strike is team based multiplayer First Person Shooter and started out as a modification for Half-life but is now also sold as a seperately boxed game.
In this article I'm going to show you few steps of how to run Counter-Strike 1.6 :
1) First download the latest version of wine in a directory. After downloading the wine-*.tar.bz2 open up a Terminal and do:
cd /the_directory_you_saved_wine_into/ tar jxf wine-*.tar.bz2 cd wine-*
To install (option -s for make is for "silent" - it's optional ) :
./configure make -s make -s install
2) Let's say you have Counter-Strike 1.6 on a CD First you need to mount the CD ( mount /mnt/cdrom ) and then:
if it's a setup.exe :
wine setup.exe -applaunch=10
if it's an original Counter-Strike 1.6 CD:
wine msiexec /i SteamInstall.msi
Install Counter-Strike to a directory chosen by you.
Most times you need to copy the Tahoma font in order to run Counter-Strike so it can run properly.
You're done. Hopefully now it should work:
wine /directory/to/counter-strike/hl.exe -applaunch=10
