    Arrow Steam in wine

    Hello fellow Ubuntu users.
    I have a slight issue with Steam.

    Bascially, I'm dual booting win7 with ubuntu 11.04. And I want to run the Windows' exe file to it will detect all my installed games on the windows partition instead of having to redownload/copy them onto wine's directory. Is there a way to do this?

    Many thanks, Mushy.

    I would suggest reading the Wine FAQ. Links are in the stickies for this subforum. There I can't even bothered providing links I've typed this so many times...

    Long and short : don't run applications on you Windows partition using Wine. This could potentially hose your Windows install...

    Your mileage might vary with moving your Windows installed Steam steamapps folder to a native Linux partition (in your home folder). DRM-laden games won't run of course...
