Half Life 2 Orange Box in Feisty
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 12, 2007
Picked up The Orange Box (Half Life 2, Half Life 2: Episode One, Half Life 2: Episode Two, Portal AND Team Fortress 2 included for $50!) last night and installed everything today.
I used WINE 0.9.41, Ubuntu 32-bit 7.04. Had to copy all the data from the DVDs onto my harddrive before installing, but everything went smoothly, including installing Steam.
Two hiccups: Steam cut out sound from my machine initially. I found that playing an .ogg file while Steam loads up made sure sound came through okay. Also, I changed the audio settings in winecfg to make sure the Alsa driver was selected, with driver emulation turned off.
Portal, Half Life 2, and Team Fortress 2 all play well at 1024 x 768.
EDIT: Realized I used an older version of WINE (0.9.41), the one that Automatix installs.
Orange box covers half of screen
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 4, 2011
This is a rather annoying issue which is also intermittent and it seems to occur mostly when I move the mouse pointer over to uncover the Unity dock.
The problem is that there is an orange transparent box covering the left hand side of the screen and it covers half the screen. It will start with no apparent frequency and can stop as easily. One way that rids the screen of the box is to use the Unity desktop switcher app to switch to Desktop 4/4 and then switch back to Desktop 1 or 3 but this does not always work either.
I am hoping someone else has come across this issue and solved it already.

Thanks for any info
Half Life 2 "Cannot write block to device"
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 17, 2010
Hello, I have recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 beta2 (because whenever I tried Debian, CentOS, Fedora, and OpenSuse, something didn't work correctly.), and soon after installing, I installed PlayOnLinux to be able to run steam. The PlayOnLinux install, the steam install, and the Windows Fonts install completed without any errors.
Now for the problem:
I also downloaded Half Life 2 through steam, and whenever I launch it (launch arguments are "-console -novid -w 1024 -h 768 -window", the console window pops up while it is loading and says in red text "Cannot write block to device." Soon after, about 4 seconds later, it closes without showing any other error messages. I have disabled steam community in-game. The game still does the same.
Might PlayOnLinux be causing this problem? I have successfuly gotten it to work a year ago or so with Wine on Ubuntu 8.04, without any errors.

Original Half Life & Counter Strike 1.6 in Beta (Steam for Linux)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 25, 2013
The original Half Life game is now playable on Steam for Linux. If you own a copy of the original Half Life for Windows you should have access to the Half-Life (Beta) entry in the Linux library. The game is not yet labelled with the penguin or visible in the Linux store as it's only in beta.
For those with the original counter-strike, that also just recently showed up in the linux cdr. After installing it via Steam and you're getting a launch error try launching the game using this command: cd ~/Steam/SteamApps/common/Counter-Strike; LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:. ./hl_linux -game cstrike;
Here's the link to the steam discussion board with all the information on that:Link
I'm off to get my counter strike up and running, see you guys on the battlefield!
All in one Orange Box
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 12, 2012
With Steam diving into Ubuntu Linux, I've started thinking about a next gen. console. With that in mind, I started thinking about the big picture and how consoles can't be upgraded and the user rights a horrible. So I decided to build my "all in one orange box." This box will be for the future of my living room. It will have STEAM's "BIG Picture" in mind as well as Ubuntu TV, "TV for humans." These two overlays will bring new life into my media set up. No need to have a media player a PS3 and what ever else one could want. Bamm here is the wish list.

Does The Orange Box work in Wine well?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 17, 2008
I've been thinking about buying The Orange Box and I wanted to know if it would work fine under Wine. Didn't really want to waste $20.
The App Database at winehq.org says Portal and Team Fortress 2 work fine, but has anyone here ever tried them?

[SOLVED] Half Life 1 (steam) no sound
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 17, 2008
Hey everyone, I just installed Steam through WINE and it seems to have worked well. I installed Half Life and went to play it. Now I can hear sound in the menus (like when I click new game I can hear the little menu sounds). But when I get in game I don't hear anything. I have WINE set up to use OSS drivers (I have OSS4 because its the only thing that supports my Creative XFI card) if anyone could help that would be great.
Had to check "driver emulation" in the audio tab of wine's configuration box.
The Orange Box+Catalyst 7.11+Ubuntu Gutsy+WINE
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 14, 2007
I bought the Orange Box a couple weeks ago ($25, nice deal huh), and after playing the hell out of it in Windows, I'm going to give it a shot under Linux.
I figure it might be a nice test. I know that Enemy Territory: Quake Wars runs in Linux just about as well as it does in Windows for me, which is with mostly high settings (which is amazing to me). So, I figure I'd like to try Portal and Team Fortress 2 under the latest ATI Drivers for Linux (Catalyst 7.11) and the latest edition of WINE. While it'll probably be futile, I'd like to try anyway.
Does anyone have any tips for me before I get started?
