well here's the thing. I'm sure there are a hundred threads about this specific problem but everyone I've used and looked at hasn't helped me. so just to point out unless its not already completely obvious I'm new to Linux. i just switched over about a week ago to Ubuntu 13.04 and i really wanna be able to play Diablo 2 & LoD on my Eee PC Asus 1005hab netbook. its the only game i can play on this system PC; of the memory and the integrated video card. but I've tried everything to get Diablo 2 and LoD to installed, but nothing works. I'm trying to do this from ISO images of the game. I managed to get Diablo 2 installed using GmountISO and Wine, but it won't recognize the disk mounted, now to run it. And I could never even get LoD to get recognized to install it. Here is a list of programs I have downloaded that hopefully anyone can give me a solution to use these.

  • wine 1.4.1
  • playonlinux 4.1.1
  • furius ISO mount
  • Gmount not sure what version.

Can anyone please just help me get this installed so i can play my Diablo?

Did you first try for example my answer in askubuntu.com/questions/15518/how-do-i-install-wine/16696#16696 which is the PPA. I see you are using 1.4.1 but 1.5 and the coming 1.6 is much better. Also most up to date Diablo 2 testers used the latest appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=25602 –  Luis Alvarado Jul 3 '13 at 5:52
thank you for the corrections made on my post. i tried to find the newer versions of wine and the software center does not have them. also is there a place i can reference what these acronyms stand for. like i said in my post im very new to Ubuntu so im still trying to figure out what everyone is trying to say with all of these acronyms –  jimfbmm Jul 3 '13 at 10:09
