Installing Windows Games in Linux [ID:018]

a series of video-tutorials by Bruce Cadieux

Installing Windows games in Linux requires special software, it can be done in an application called wine (requires a lot of work). Or for $15US you can sign up at Transgaming's web site and download the easiest and best solution to installing Windows games in Linux. The application is called Cedega, and it is about as easy as things get. This a two part series, the first video shows the installation of cedega and how to install a game. See the second video for the completion of the install.

Note: Bruce uses SUSE Linux and these tutorials done on that distribution. File names and paths to system files may be different in other distributions. If not using SUSE, check the locations of your system directories. Equivalent tools to those found in YaST are available in other distributions.

Video Tutorials

1. Installing Windows Games in Linux - Part 1

The first of two screencasts showing how to install and use Cedega, probably the easiest way to play Windows games on a Linux box.

2. Installing Windows Games in Linux - Part 2

The second of the two videos showing how to install Windows games in Linux. This isn't a critical watch but does show the completion of a game's installation using Cedega.

Showmedo is a peer-produced video-tutorials and screencasts site for free and open-source software (FOSS)- with the exception of some club videos, the large majority are free to watch and download.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for Bruce
