    Installing Steam with wine


    Hi, Ive managed to get wine to work for a few of my applications like winmx.. and halflife..

    But now i want to install steam and test out some online gaming. Ive seen a few tutorials on how to do this, and well... simply im stuck =]

    Ive installed the latest wine.
    Ive installed the reccommended font packs (and they seem to be working on winmx)

    But when i go to install steam from the exe, all that appears is a blank square.

    Odd i think to myself.

    I boot up a console and see whats happening:

    Code:
    [skythra@mandrake Downloads]$ wine steaminstall_full.exe
    fixme:ntdll:FILE_GetNtStatus Converting errno 38 to STATUS_UNSUCCESSFUL
    fixme:ntdll:FILE_GetNtStatus Converting errno 38 to STATUS_UNSUCCESSFUL
    ReadStyleSheet: missing style number

    Any help would be appreciated!

    I have heard that the latest Wine build from WineHQ simply does not work with steam, however I do know that WineX does,

    Here is instructions to install WineX from CVS

    And here is instructions to get it Steam running on it
