Eq emu Zorin 6

Post by HerbPipes » Wed Aug 29, 2012 1:11 pm

i installed Eq titanium with no problems. I just cant run it lol. I am a total linux n00b and i have been trying to play around with the "command" area of the link to repoint it to eqgame.exe and add the patchme flag. no matter what i do it doesnt do anything.

so i have 3 questions
1. do i have to run it from a terminal window
2. when do i change the backslashes to forward slashes or what not? (im a linux n00b)
3. what should the link command look like?

Hello, Everquest has the following 2 links in the application database;
Everquest
Everquest 2

Silver and Gold so you will need to do some work on them and neither is the Titianium Edition.

As far as making a link to the program you can right click inside any directory and create a laucher or link to application. The simple way to start, assuming the game is installed, Create the launcher and flip over to the application tab and enter the name. Then under command browse out to the exe and click ok. Now add the word wine to the front of the command line. Next on path or work path browse out to the same directory and add it. Now you should have a link in the folder that you can click to run wine and it will run EQ.

You can open the link in any text editor and it will look something like this;

[Desktop Entry]
Comment[en_US]=
Comment=
Exec=wine '/media/Games Apps/games/Everquest/eq.exe'
GenericName[en_US]=
GenericName=
Icon=exec
MimeType=
Name[en_US]=Everquest
Name=Everquest
Path=/media/Games Apps/games/Everquest
StartupNotify=true
Terminal=false
TerminalOptions=
Type=Application
X-DBUS-ServiceName=
X-DBUS-StartupType=
X-KDE-SubstituteUID=false
X-KDE-Username=
X-Ubuntu-Gettext-Domain=desktop_kdebase

If you wanted to run this from prompt in Terminal you would type;

wine '/media/Games Apps/games/Everquest/eq.exe'

Good Luck getting it up and running.
