In this article I'm going to show you few steps of how to run Counter-Strike 1.6 :

  1. You need to install the latest wine.
  2. Install Counter-Strike 1.6.
  3. 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 ) :

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:

cd /mnt/cdrom/

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
