    Re: How many of my Steam games will run through WINE?

    In theory you don't need a separate install for every app, you can just install them on the same fake C drive like you wuld in windows. If you want a clean install you can remove the .wine directory. Warning: this will remove all your wine programs. You can also have different fake c drives for wine at the same time if you want to isolate apps and settings, you can specify another location for the wine directory by setting the WINEPREFIX enviroment variable: export WINEPREFIX=/path/to/wine then create the directory by executing wineprefixcreate

    If you have the latest version and the problems are still there, type regedit in a command line, go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3D and add a new string value: UseGLSL and give it the value "enabled"*(you need to add the key Direct3D if it's not there already). See if that helps.

    Also are you using an ATI card? If so that might be the source of your problems, I have no experience with ATI cards in linux but I hear lots of people are having problems with them.
    Yes, I have 0.9.37.

    I have basically no experience editing registry though, so if you could perhaps walk me through it....
    Under wine there is no Direct3D folder.

    I have an nVidia 8800 GTS.

    Ok editing the registry is pretty easy, I assume you already navigated to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\, If the Direct3D key isn't there, create it by right clicking the wine folder icon and clicking "add key", now type Direct3d and hit enter. Click on your fresh key and right click in the empty field on the right, in the popup menu go to new > String value (I think it's called string value, my install is dutch so im not sure look for something similair, a string is an array of characters). Call the string value UseGLSL hit enter right click your new String value and click edit, type "enabled" (without quotes) and hit enter and exit the registry. Fire up steam
    I go to sleep now so I hope you get it right.

    Edit: rereading your post, maybe you misunderstood me, HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\ is not a folder. You have to run regedit: Open a command line type regedit and hit enter, from there you will see what I mean.

    Well, I didn't really notice any difference...

    But the issue I want to fix the most is how I can get it to just run in one of my monitors without having to turn the other one off... Because otherwise it wants to run it at a widescreenres.

    What make is your video card and what method are you using for dual monitor display?

    Nvidia's twinview, for example, treats both monitors as a single display and there is no way to display a fullscreen app on just on monitor while have the second monitor in use. You need to use a windowed mode, or implement a metamode in your xorg.conf with an entry like "1280x1024, NULL" to disable the second monitor when the game is running. Dual X screens will work too, but those have other issues.

    Forget it, I switched to Linux to get away from the script kiddies and all the rest of the punks who think they own the Internet.
    Wine is for people who want a little cheese with it.

    Leave windows alone, don't look back, there be dragons.
    It hurts one time, and you're done.

    steam just fully locks up and freezes on me. All my drivers are up to date. I installed "Gecko" but im not sure if it's on properly, if not that may be the problem. Is there anyway I can check?

    Do this in a terminal:

    Code:
    wine iexplore http://www.winehq.org
    If Gecko is not properly installed it will prompt you with the steps needed to do so.
