Look into Linux Beta Access steam group forums. They have most such cases covered.
well i was in i rush to post my problem...actualy after i restart pc(laptop) then i try the game again...,and it work'd..but i had poor performance on that game..
i was hoping that like cartoon game doesnt need top notch gear!i was wrong..,and that was the game i was looking forward to...well for now back to windows and play tera!
I would hope they do.. and make it as user friendly as possible.. Kind of like how Android is for users. I like asking Android users if they have ever used Linux, and what do they think about it? Most say "No, never have you can't play games on Linux..".. hehehe Then I tell them Android is a Linux based Operating System and they say, "Wow, I didn't know that"..hehehe They could make there on Distro and then still offer it to anyone on other major Disto's (Ubuntu, Mint, etc..). Here's hoping
EDIT: If they don't use Valvebuntu then they could call it Crowbar!...
Ok I want to start getting into linux, what would be the best noobie starter distro? Mint? Ubuntu? CentOS?
I'd suggest Linux Mint [MATE edition]
I'd say Ubuntu, Mint, CentOS in that order.
I just started mint downloading so I will try that first then the others. I have used Ubuntu before but got stumped on how stuff worked so uninstalled it. I need to get fresh with the terminal commands.
Good luck! If you need any help then this is the place to be.
I love linux in the sense of android so hopefully I can get into on the PC. I have a android live disc that I use to goof off on laptops. It is very cool.
Ok Have linux installed but how do you install .SH files from files downloaded from the internet?
Mint with the MATE desktop should be good (I use MATE on Sabayon), the Cinnamon desktop is not my cup of tea although it is less messy than KDE at it's default settings.
Sabayon is a good distro as well, also less bloated than Mint, when using either the MATE or Xfce edition (the "main" flavours of Sabayon, with KDE or Gnome 3 are slightly more bloated).
Pro tip: trying out distros a bit is best done by loading .iso files into VMWare Player.
chmod +x FILENAME.sh (makes it executable)
./FILENAME.sh (runs it assuming you are in the directory it is in).
A helpful command is is "pwd" which gives you the file path to the working directory you are in.
I sure hope Valve comes out with its own distro. I might have to give it a try.
thanks justin! I am goofing off in it now. Going to attempt to install bionc
MM why don't you install virtual box (free software BTW) then download the ISO to the distro of your choosing to learn. This is what I am doing.
See what I did there!
Can also be done via the properties window (right clicking on the file). And most likely the permissions are already set on "executable".
I usually use "sudo sh" and paste the full path to the file behind it from the file manager. That way there is no need to navigate into the right folder with "cd". Brandon may prefer that method above the "UNIX master race" way.
One thing I had to figure out real quick is that terminal manager is CASE sensitive! so cd /downloads is different from cd /Downloads
Also the firewall is off by default in MINT.
I do not run a firewall anyway on my machine. The firewall is dedicated to my DHCP server which is also running linux IPfire OS
Yup, just like when typing a path in Explorer.
Indeed. Sabayon does a better job at this point by asking whether the FW should be enabled during the installation.
Cool man. Just wanted to let you know in case. It has a firewall. Its just off by default for some reason.
Ok I ran the file as a program and it extracted a folder called bionc but now it will not do anything else?
sudo is defacto now in all enterprise environments.
I mean, why do You always need to be root when running shell scripts?
