I'm trying to install a game for Linux called Myth 2. Autorun doesn't run when I insert the CD. When I double-click or right-click and the select "Open" on the Setup file, a box appears saying that it's an executable file, and what I want to do. I click on "Run", but nothing happens after that. I checked the permissions, and it allows it running the executable.

How do I install this game? Please break down instructions as much as possible, I'm not used to using commands and Terminal. ;)

What version of Ubuntu are you running? Natty? Is it 32 or 64 bit? If you goto a Terminal and type the name of the executable it should give some additional error messages. Need more information to properly troubleshoot. –  Justin Andrusk Sep 1 '11 at 17:29
    
I'm running 11.04. I typed the name of the executable and it said "command not found". I'm trying to go to the CD directory in the terminal, but I'm not that proficient. From what I can tell, the name of the CD is Myth2 Soulbligher-Linux, but the terminal says "Myth2: no such file or directory". –  Ralf Tiede Sep 1 '11 at 17:56
    
Does the cd you've purchased have a linux version of the game? –  desgua Sep 1 '11 at 18:10
    
Autorun doesn't run when I insert the CD. That's intentional, there is no real Autorun feature on Linux like that one in Windows (thank godness). Open up a terminal, navigate to the folder the CD is mounted (you can see the path in Nautilus), and run ./NameOfSetupFileHere. –  Bobby Sep 1 '11 at 18:19

Thanks Bobby, and pardon my ignorance, but can you walk me through this like I'm an 8-year-old? How do I find the path in Nautilus? –  Ralf Tiede Sep 1 '11 at 22:16

What your system needs it to run the game using a Windows type environment.

To get this follow this instruction here:

To install Wine in Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal, open Terminal and run the following commands:

For the latest Wine 1.3.xx (Most recent versions but kind of unstable) -

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wine1.3

After which you should reboot. Insert the CD and run the game.
