hey everyone. i'm trying to get quake 1 to install using wine, but i've gotten nowhere. the old install is a batch file (.bat) and each time i try to run it in wine it doesn't work. has anyone gotten quake 1 to run using ubuntu? btw, im using edgy 6.10 if that makes a difference.

If I recall, Q1 extractor is a DOS program. Try using DOSBox.

After that, you don't even need DOSBox or wine. Go grab a native Quake source port such as DarkPlaces and place the data files you extracted in the resulting directory.

DOSBox actually works for me.

1. Download and Install DOSBox via APT:


sudo apt-get install dosbox

2. Download Quake 1 from id Software's website:

ftp://ftp.idsoftware.com/idstuff/quake/quake106.zip

3. Extract to a directory (any)

4. Open DOSBox (In Gnome, on the menu go to Applications, Games, DOSBox Emulator), and mount the directory so you can access it:


mount c directory
C:

5. Once there, extract Quake (Leave everything default and press enter).


install.bat

6. Once the extraction is done, Quake should load!


I haven't managed to get sound to work. To load it again, repeat step 4 and do:


cd QUAKE_SW
QUAKE

Hope that helps! :)

Although Wine can run dos programs, it doesn't have as much support as dosbox, the support is mainly there to help with Windows applications that use DOS stuff.

DarkPlaces is a great tool. You can download a pack to make Quake look so much better.
