From what I recall you cannot run CS 1.6 natively on Ubuntu. You'll have to use wine or another windows emulator... Not sure about this though. – don.joey Jun 27 '13 at 12:11
There is native Steam working on Ubuntu but Counter-Strike is not listed. – qursk Jul 13 '13 at 9:55
Both Counter Strike and Counter Strike Source are provided natively through Steam on Linux . I tried them and they worked with no problem. – Mathieu Comandon Dec 5 '13 at 20:47

If you're still experiencing this problem, what happens exactly when you try to install it using Steam? – Eliah Kagan Jan 20 '14 at 12:17

Download steam installer for linux from steam official site. Through steam you will be able to install CS 1.6. Its working for me. But, however, I am looking for portable CS 1.6 build that can run on Linux/Ubuntu. Because, Its looks like Steam/CS 1.6 having some issues with firewall. I often get disconnected from the game & I get some message telling me to relax firewall rules.

If you know to work around this issue, then you should be good with Steam/CS 1.6.
