To play windows games that are available only on steam
Ah! That's why! Sorry. I thought Steam-client suddenly have become WINE-wrapped.
But… Where is the GOG in all of this? Questions regarding Steam client or WINE should probally go to , [url=https://forum.winehq.org/]forum
, relevant Gamingonlinux forum
or somewhere in the Steamcommunity.
Actually it has nothing to do with GOG, so you're right. I just saw the "General Linux FAQ..." thing and thought it was okay to post something I was trying to troubleshoot. Yes, that's exactly what I'm trying to do. I have somehow botched my Windows installation and I'm waiting for a backup solution (I'm outta space - cloud and otherwise). So I'm using Linux as a workaround because Steam no longer works. I've have spent days trying to get it to work on Windows before using Mint as a workaround.
Everything is good, except I wanted to use Wine to download Steam games. I have also tried (trying?) PlayOnLinux. It's my second day trying to get Steam to run via Wine but nothing works, then I'll just settle for the Linux version of Steam until that Wine regression? is fixed. Also, I usually stay away from betas or unstable versions of anything.
Since I prefer GUI and have already messed things up greatly using the terminal in Mint already, I think I'll just stick to Interfaces rather than dwelling anymore into command lines. I'm already registered here, so I thought I might as well ask here. I have searched other places before asking here and have just registered this question in the Steam forums
Thank you for the help, guys.
