How to run windows games and applications on linux ?

Well the most basic thing required is WINE (WINE Is Not an Emulator or Windows Environment)

(Note you must have direct rendering enabeled use glxinfo to check)

1)Install Wine

Fedora Users : su yum install wine or use yum Ex or use Smart Package Manager.
Ubuntu /Debian Users: su apt-get install wine
OpenSUSE: Use Yast NOTE: YOU MUST HAVE PROPER REPOSITORIES LIKE PACMAN OR LIVNA

or just download .rpm or .deb package and install.

2)Install DirectX:

Use Wine Review Directions

3) Certain Games Use Open Gl eg Warcraft 3 ,Counter Strike and dont require DirectX

Now You Can Play Some Games
4) Cedega or Wine Doors: Install Cedega by using its CVS code from http://www.cedega.com or well <i>buy it</i>
Maybe i will post some directions for cedega compilation. or you can get precompiled illegal version from torrent sites.

Wine Doors: Download from here
