Is it possible to install and run them on my phone (a Samsung Galaxy Note), since I have a variant of Ubuntu (ARM-based) Linux installed?
The minimum system requirements does not specify any requirements regarding x86 or x64 (or ARM). I haven't tried it yet since I don't want to buy the games then find out that it's not compatible.
The games are distributed in binary form (without source code), and it's almost certain that those binaries were compiled for x86 platforms. So no, the games won't run on your Galaxy Note.
(Even if they were distributed in source form, there's no guarantee that the code doesn't have any x86-specific parts in it.)
In addition, despite the operating system being the same, the environment on a Linux desktop system can be drastically different than that on a phone. The processor speed, graphics chipsets, and input methods are likely quite different.
Steam for Linux is now in open beta, and the most recent Humble Bundle (Humble Indie Bundle 7) is available for Linux, Mac and Windows. If I purchase the current Humble Bundle, am I able to redeem the Steam keys on Steam for Linux? Will this allow me to download the Linux versions of these games through Steam, with Steam maintaining the games and keeping them up to date like normal?
I purchased the humble indie bundle 2, downloaded braid, and installed it. Since the bundle is now available on Steam, I am now downloading the Steam version for achievements etc. Will the steam version use the same save as the non-Steam version? Related: If I have the non-Steam version of a game and the Steam version, is it possible to make Steam only redownload changed files? Not a huge issue for the Humble Indie games, being quite small in size, but it would be handy for something like UT3 if I activated my key on Steam.
Does anybody know about the two locks on a single bundle? I am talking about the green lock price and the blue lock price. For eg, in the last Humble Weekly Sega sale, the Total War Shogun 2 was only given to those who donate more than $16. Will that game still be available to obtain after the bundle period by boosting the amount? I have already beat the average of $6 and got 11 games. But I really wanted Shogun 2. EDIT: This is the response I got from Humble Bundle Customer support. I think they should know more about the Humble Bundle Martin MAR 31, 2014 | 02:17PM PDT So does
range is 4138003 to 4138003, installed revision is ffffffff Interpretation From what I can tell from the log file, the number that precedes each line is actually the day in yymmdd format followed...I am aware that BattleStar Galactica Online requires the Unity 3D browser plug-in to play. It is currently only available to Windows. I installed the windows version of Firefox 20 using Wine 1.4.1. It ran beautifully and smoothly. Then I installed the United 3D browser plugin version 4.1.2f1 using Wine. I registered for the game and went to play it. However, it gave me this error when the game
I have a bug in Torchlight Humble Bundle Linux. When I level up and want to select the upgrades the fonts of the whole screen change when it's run with sudo to blocks and when it's run without sudo they disappear. As you can see the faces also disappear but this is a known bug and it doesn't change the game's playability. But the disappearing fonts are really annoying. How do I fix this? I am using Linux Debian Wheezy 64 bit.
Wherever I go, my surroundings are always dark. I have been experiencing this bug since the start of the game. This screencap shows what happens: Also this video (2MB) might explain the problem. How I can fix this problem? I've installed all of the support programs including PhysX & VC++, but the issue persists.
I put off getting the humble indie bundle because I wanted to wait till I could make a large donation and I apparently waited too long. How do I buy Torchlight for Linux now that the bundle is over?
Related to the question: How can I check if my machine will be able to run a game? The website, Can You Run it?, will compare your system components to the requirements for most published games. This website runs exclusively on Windows platforms. Is there any equivalent tool for MacOS?
I normally use Steam, but after purchasing the latest Humble Bundle I acquired several Origin games. My main hard drive is a 128GB SSD, but it's is almost full. I like to keep a few games I'm playing on there, and the rest installed on my 1TB secondary drive. In Steam it is simple and easy to select a game and chose which hard drive to install it to. Is there a way to do this on Origin? The only thing I've found so far is this: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/16226/complete-guide-to-symbolic-links-symlinks-on-windows-or-linux/ Seems a little OTT for what should be a simple procedure.
