    Wine and Steam problems


    Hi, I am very new to Linux and am trying to get my games on Steam working. So I got Wine and Steam working fine but whenever I click on a game to launch it, it will say loading game then just go back to the normal game list page. Anyone have any suggestions?

    btw I have the latest version of Wine installed. My mandrake linux came with Quake 2 and that is installed correctly but also doesnt load up. Im thinking that these two problems are linked. Please help, Thank you

    Maybe the proprietary drivers for you video card are not installed
    You may tell us what distro you run, and some info about your computer setup

    Type in a terminal:

    lsb_release -a

    to know everything about your distro and post it here

    if you have a NVidia card

    glxinfo -v

    if you have an ATI card

    fglxinfo -v

    to know anything about your video graphic adapter and some OpenGL info, just in case you wouldn't have the right one

    post the results here

    type lspci -v

    to know everything about your computer setup, like everything that is connected and installed on your PC
    and post the results here

    So we'll be able to help you more.

    You should have fglx drivers instead of glx. glx is for NVIDIA cards, fglx is for ATI cards.

    You should, through your package manager, uninstall the glx drivers, and install the fglx ones. That is maybe part of your problem. Your video card is recognized, but wont be activated with the wrong drivers for them.

    Those are the right packages for ati proprietary drivers

    * dkms-fglrx
    * x11-driver-video-fglrx
    * fglrx-devel

    You should uninstall those ones:

    * dkms-nvidia-current
    * dkms-nvidia96xx
    * dkms-nvidia71xx
    * x11-driver-video-nvidia-current
    * x11-driver-video-nvidia96xx
    * x11-driver-video-nvidia71xx
    * nvidia-current-devel
    * nvidia96xx-devel
    * nvidia71xx-devel

    if you have them
