Portal (through Wine)

Just got Portal to work on my main computer which runs Ubuntu 7.10 x64. The trick was to download Portal.FIX-Unleashed and replace SteamEmu.ini! The Wine version (0.9.46) in the official repository worked great, even though it's a bit outdated. The steps I had to take was:
  • Install msttcorefonts package
  • Start it this way: wine hl2.exe -game portal -windowed -w 1024 -h 768 -dxlevel 80 -novid
The game is pretty mind blowing and great fun. The developers have a good sense of humor and the crazy computer that guides you, or do not guide you makes you laugh a lot of times. This is a must play game for everyone, and it should not be a problem to get through either since it is quite short. I used 2-3 hours.
