How many more pinned topic do we need more? How about create a sub forum for faq, how-to and etc only; not ask for help or something else. To keep something seprate and easier to find info by go there. That's my suggest and thought.

i would REALLY REALLY REALLY like Tribes 2 for linux, it was readilly avaliable when Loki was still around (for those who havent woken up to the sad reality, Loki - one of the largest Linux game manufacturers (and game porters) have gone bankrupt and thus it is hard to find some of the better titles in their once supreme collection of ported games). But just as my luck has it, when i decided i wantedd to play games on linux, Loki went broke, and i cant find any games i want anymore, (i have looked on every loki distributor (listed on thier site) and cant find Tribes 2, i tried to Wine my windows copy which hasnt yet worked (still working on it)

so in short, i would like Tribes 2 for linux, if any1 has any idea where i can get it, plz tell me, it is one of my all time favorite games!!!

WineX still needs improvement. But I do wish that some of the manufacturers make Linux versions of their software as well. Microsoft will definitely refuse, for sure.

[quote name='The_Napster' post='588255332' date='Jan 24 2007, 04:56']What is the linux version of Autocad?[/quote]With this thread being in "", I didn't see this post until now. There is no equivalent to AutoCAD in Linux, I am afraid. However, I have tried the free version of [url="http://www.ribbonsoft.com/qcad.html"]QCad[/url], and it works fine for 2D work. As an engineer, I fully agree that having Autodesk support AutoCAD on Linux is a BIG item.

[quote name='Omegatron' post='588363339' date='Mar 2 2007, 09:02']I'm looking for install CrossOffice on Ubuntu.. tried many times and fail :([/quote]This is a technical problem. Best to post this in the regular support forum. :yes:
If this is purchased version, it comes with support from Codeweavers. If this is the free version without support, it still shouldn't be difficult. Perhaps someone with experience can help.

I need a simple app that logs and gives a unique name to every file within a set of directories every time they're modified (individually).

Yes, I know someone proficient in bash could do that, but I'm crap at writing scripts.

I would never use linux on my desktops/laptops/mediacenter, but on my server i would love to see linux.
But since i SUCK at linux, i would love some setupapp. like you find in windows server 2003/2008 when you log in the first time.

This probably exists, and I'm just ignorant?

A tool that some people use, especially on a remote-administered box, is [url="http://www.webmin.com/"]webmin[/url].

For a local box, the various distros often offer tools for just that. Red Hat / Fedora have their [b]system-config-[i]xxxxx[/i][/b] apps that will present a GUI window to configure various aspects of the system.
