    Open a terminal and type in "cedega" + the location and name of the app, for example if your exe-file is in /home/testuser/files/ and called "test.exe", do this:
    cd /home/testuser/files/
    cedega test.exe

    ok, i'll start from the very beginning to make it nice and easy:

    Unzip the package/RPM/Whatever you use to get Cedega. Once that's done, put your favorite game in the cdrom.

    next do this:

    $cd /mnt/cdrom;ls (or whatever you call yours)

    This will bring up a list of different files on the cd.

    Look for the one called "setup.exe" (Note, sometimes its "install.exe" or "nameOfGame.exe")

    $cedega setup.exe

    This should bring up the installer. Install it like you would in windows.

    This is where cedega starts working magic: It fools the game into thinking that the directory created when you installed cedega called "C Drive" is the windows "C:\" and installs the game there.

    Once installation is complete, cd into the directory created by the installation.


    $cd /home/bill/TransGaming_Drive/'C Drive'/'Name of Game Directory'

    (Hint, sometimes you need to go into the 'program files' or 'games' subdirectory too!)

    then execute the executable like so:

    $cegeda game.exe

    And start kicking ass. Or whatever it is the game expects you to do!

    Hope that helps.

    PS- I hope you didn't do Point2Play, because IMHO it sucks. If you did, I'm sorry but the above tutorial will be pretty much completely useless to you...

    Good Luck!

    This is only for the Binary and the free version, do you have the free version?

    ^ Gives you everything, you dont even need to DL Cedega, follow the instructions and it will do it for you.^
