I think the_jester here on the form has gotten BF2 to work, so I'd probably PM him to get his attention.

Here are some files that will install X-Fire as a GAIM plug-in, with fully functional Instant Messaging capabilities. For Ubuntu, download the appropriate .deb and install.

Set the version number (advanced GAIM property) to something greater than or equal to the current version of X-Fire update.

If for some reason the .deb doesn't work, you can do it from source, which is also on that download page.

I can't quite figure what to make of the comment about Steamâ„¢. Will DOD:Source be able to run under Linux with emulator "Wine" ... I asume that's what it is .. an emulator
The thing is, that a buddy of mine wants a new computer(I'm assembling it for him) that's not meant for anything but gaming and regular web surfing, and yesterday we talked about my plan to setup some kind of cluster, best as I can , and when I mentioned that I'd read in a doc about clustering that a majority of windows-files shouldn't theoretically have any problems running on ext2/3. At least that's how I understood it. There will of course be problems when the file thinks it in windows and asks for windows folders/files, but theoretically
Then he immediately asked if it would be possible to setup the new gaming computer running Linux and still be able to play mainly DOD:Source and thereby save the roughly 100$ Win XP home costs. At least that's what it costs here a.t.m.
My immediate response was to stick with Windows since that's what he's used to, and he doesn't have to worry about any kind of learning curves regarding installing things him self, and then ofcourse that he'll be certain that Steamâ„¢ and whichever games he might want, can run w/o errors ... well apart from the underlying error that is Windows ;-)
And then that he can start by getting a dual boot setup to get acquainted with Linux and still be certain he can run games by simply booting up Windows instead of Linux. Wouldn't you agree on that?
But still .. can the :Source-engine and its games run under Linux with an emulator?

There is a much more extensive list on Wine's site - I would honestly suggest using that list

To the post above - you can use cdega(?) which is a pay-service built on Wine but made for gaming. It costs $5/month but is still cheaper than windows (esp. when you consider that all of your other prgms are free)

Yes sir. It might take some playing to get your mouse working properly, but all Source engine games are confirmed working in Wine. (I personally have used CS:S and HL2: DM. I own DOD:S, but didn't download it to save HD space. It is the same engine with slightly different gameplay though, so it should work with no issues.)

If your graphics are laggy, try running the games in DirectX 7 mode. (There's an FAQ on that here somewhere.....)
