Ok so my computer that was Windows 8 ended up crashing and said I didn't have an operating system, it wouldn't even let me reinstall windows on my computer. I tried a couple of older windows CDs I had still nothing. So I went to an old Linux CD I had installed it burnt a copy of Ubuntu 12.04.1 got that up and running been using that for a day or two now. I've got most of the files and programs I need working. Lots of Google and YouTube haha! I'm not very good with this stuff.
I did get wine and playonlinux all installed and running. I can't seem to get my steam games to work for me. I Googled and looked around for the better part of the day, still found nothing that was of much help to me. I found a good handful of people who couldn't get Stream to open, but that wasn't my problem.
these are the 3 games I downloaded and installed
Total War Shogun 2. This one it would either start up I'd get to the Shogun loading screen (first thing that comes up) be there for a few seconds and then closes out.
Metro 2033. This one would black screen on me and either freeze my computer or would let me close it out. More times than not it just froze up.
Star Wars KOTOR 2. This one I was able to start up it kinda went black screen then it was at the main menu but half the screen was blank (some here some there)
I read saying to post the info from the teminal I don't know how to get that info.
I've gone to system drives and put it to use the driver that is recommended. After I did that Shogun 2 wouldn't even start. Then now it does..?
Not sure if it's that these games aren't supported by wine, or what not. Or a user error that I can fix.
I'm pretty much happy with using Ubuntu, I just want to be able to play my games along with my everyday computer needs.
As I said above I'm not very good with computers, but if you post step by step how to find info you need, or how to fix. I'm sure I'll be able to do it.
Wine and Ubuntu version
Can someone explain how to get this while trying to run a game on Steam.
Nothing that i am sure on. Info on how to check all this?
Intel® Core™ i7-2600K CPU @ 3.40GHz × 8
EVGA GRX 560Ti Driver I went to the additional drivers under system setting and used the one put as recommended says NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver (version current)[recommended]
