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?

Does Adobe lightroom work in wine?

The title says it all. Does that work in wine or am I better suited to running it in virtualbox? As an aside is there an equivalent to lightroom in Linux

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?
Orange Box games Using Wine (Performance Issues Unplayable)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 15, 2009
So I just installed Ubuntu 8.10 on my Lenovo T61p (which has an nVidia Quadro 570m video card), and installed Wine (and that font you need) and the recommended restricted hardware driver. I downloaded Steam via the steampowered website, more or less like I would through Windows, and then downloaded the content for Portal and Team Fortress 2 through Steam, which, like everything else up to this point, has run beautifully.
Unfortunately, the games themselves run extremely poorly, at about 10 frames per second (I get 30-40 in Vista, and 25-35 in Windows 7), and upon starting, I must alt+tab in order to bring up a visible, rather than black, screen. I tried turning my resolution and every effect down to its minimum to no avail. I wish I could record myself playing, because watching the lightning effects fail utterly is kind of amusing.
Anyways, I was wondering if I've made some grave mistake along the way, and if anyone else had tried running these games (or any other from The O

I just did a fresh install of mythbuntu and the first thing i did was install freenx as through the ubuntu community documentation.

Sed: insert a newline. Why does not it work?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 17, 2004
I want to replace "," by newline in each line, and I tried this:
echo "first,second,third" | sed 's/,/\n/g'
It poduced this:
(no newlines there :-()
So I tried this:
echo "first,second,third" | sed 's/,/'"$(printf '\n')"'/g'
Which produced this:
(still no newlines there :-(((((()
There are millions of sed examples like this on the internet, so why dos not it work for me?
Is there a workaround?
Will this Ubuntu 12.10 box work as an HTPC?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 11, 2013
I'd be interested in using the above box, which comes with Ubuntu 12.10, for a little streaming as well as doing some work, using my 46-inch RCA LED HDTV as a "monitor."
I've read that Ubuntu 12.10 has some issues with displaying properly to HDMI, which is the way I'd have to hook it up to my TV. The NewEgg product info says the graphics are Intel HD, but doesn't give the model number of the graphics card.
Basically, I want to get rid of a dedicated computer desk because it takes up valuable space in our small home. And I've had good experience converting my 2004 Mac G5 PowerPC over to Linux MintPPC (heavily Ubuntu-based), so this package appeals to me a lot. I just don't want to order it, then find out the box won't work through HDMI without serious updates to the kernel, then pay to send the product back.
Still kind of a newbie at Ubuntu (been reading the forums the last several days, searching on the topic of 12.10
