You should probably download the .deb from Steam instead of searching for it on the Software Center. There are two Steam applications, and only the .deb will give the right one to install. http://store.steampowered.com/about/

When I say "run" I'm referring to running the command in Terminal which can be opened by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T Try running sudo apt-get install steam That should work, if not try this (adapted from the Steam Github README): run sudo apt-get install gdebi-core run wget -O ~/steam.deb https://media.steampowered.com/client/installer/steam.deb. run sudo gdebi ...

The hardest part is working out which IP ranges belong to which country. There may be a way of doing this yourself but (at least for IPv4) the easiest way of doing this at the moment is using a service like ip2location. They'll give you an entire list. They'll actually give you a list in iptables format. Get what you need, run them (to block them ...

Not every Windows program is working on Wine. You can check the list of supported programs here. There's also PlayOnLinux, a software that uses Wine but it is easier thanks to a very intuitive GUI. Remember, sometimes it's better to use open-source software (like LibreOffice) than emulate Windows closed-source programs (like the MS Office suite).

Although Steam is available and officially supported for Ubuntu, not all of the games sold there are. Visit the store page of the games you want to keep playing and look out for the system requirements: If it has a Linux tab, then you should be fine. Else, your game will most likely not run on Ubuntu, at the most with Wine, but don't have too high ...

Sounds like you've got a bunch of background services running... smbd and nmbd smbd and nmbd are daemon of Samba Process. Do you really need to export smb share on windows or other machine. If not! why are these processes running? You can safely kill these processes and disable them from starting automatically when machine boots the next time. Telnet ...

In my experience, Ubuntu, despite being fairly power-efficient, can consume RAM quite quickly, and once it starts using swap, I've found that it bogs down immensely. I'd check your RAM usage using the system monitor (run it from the Unity dash or with gnome-system-monitor in the terminal). If RAM looks like an issue, you can try trimming down background ...

DirectX is a collection of a runtime and drivers. As Wine does not support the installation of Micro$oft Windows drivers, you cannot install just any version of DirectX. :-( Therefore, DirectX support needs to be enabled inside the Wine environment by the Wine developers. For more info on the current development of DirectX under wine, read this wine FAQ. ...

I did find a solution to this problem. I installed Windows in a virtual machine, attached the USB mouse device to the VM, then traced the USB traffic with Wireshark and isolated the control command that the official Logitech driver used to set the polling rate. (This was quite helpful in pointing me in the right direction: ...

Actually, it's entirely possible to play Windows games on Linux, as long as the game is supported by Wine and your hardware doesn't meltdown loading it. There are two ways to go about installing. I would recommend installing WINE and PlayOnLinux to make installing GTA:SA easier.(NOTE: Even with it being 'easier', you may have to work at it to get things ...

I think I found the answer, but not sure how to make it permanent(I think it resets on reboot?) First, do the above xinput list and get the id of your device. Not sure why, but there are 2 mice coming up with id=8 and id=10. I picked 8, and it worked. I ran the following line xinput --set-prop "8" "Device Accel Constant Deceleration" 1.5, with the value of ...

I don't have enough rep to comment unfortunately, you simply open the startup applications app and add the command as /usr/bin/xinput --set-prop "8" "Device Accel Constant Deceleration" 1.5. Then, at login the script will be run.
