Quakelive on Linux

Its just not understandable when you see Quakelive for Windows but nothing like a native Linux installation. It simply sucks for me as I dont have a dual boot with the crappy old Windows on it.

I just tried installing Quakelive on Linux and it went sweeet, so wanted to share if it could help someone.

I have Ubuntu 8.1 with Wine 1.0.1, the process is something like this:

–> Install Firefox for Windows, and Flash Player for Windows using Wine on Ubuntu

–> Now browse to Quakelive.com using the Windows based Firefox, log in and then it will ask to download the Quakelive MSI. Dowload the MSI installer and use Wine for its installation.

–> Once this is done, restart Firefox, browse to Quakelive and it will update a few files which might take a while and once thats done you are all ready to get into Quakelive.
