I wish to install Counter-Strike 1.6 on ubuntu 12.04 under wine but I don't know where to get the source (I've exe setup file) and how to run it under wine. I will connect to international servers using IP.

Please, give me step by step instructions where to download source and how to run it under wine. I'm fairly new to Linux.

Thanks in advance for your help!

is CS source also ok? –  don.joey Feb 25 '13 at 16:30
Sorry, I didn't get you. I don't have the source. I don't know where to get it. –  Raza J Feb 25 '13 at 16:31
I mean there is Counter Strike 1.6 and there is Counter Strike Source. The latter is a newer version. Though it is not the latest version, it is widely used. –  don.joey Feb 25 '13 at 16:33
No, I want to run counter-strike 1.6... –  Raza J Feb 25 '13 at 16:34

Steam Client for Linux was recently officially released for Ubuntu together with the "original Half-Life family" that includes Counter-Strike 1.6. There is no need to use Wine. To install Steam, open Ubuntu Software Center and search for "steam".
