Playing Counter Strike 1.6 with Qubes-Whonix

Today out of fun experimental inside Whonix , i installed counter strike 1.6 :smile:

steps to install & play :

  • enable 32bit architecture

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386

  • add packages signing keys

wget -nc https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/Release.key

sudo apt-key add Release.key
  • Next add the repository to /etc/apt/sources.list

deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/debian/ stretch main

  • update the repos

sudo apt update

  • then install winehq (i installed the stable version)

sudo apt-get install --install-recommends winehq-stable

  • install microsoft fonts

sudo apt install ttf-mscorefonts-installer

  • Download counter strike 1.6 , i have download it from here (http only)


(you can download it from anywhere you like)

  • right click on the .exe of cs 1.6 and choose “open with Wine Windows Program Loader”

  • let wine install wine-mono , then choose anywhere to install the game for you (i have installed it in /home/user/Desktop)

  • Enjoy! …

i wasnt sure its going to work , but here is it:

  • Conclusion

Dont enjoy too much , here are some issues:

1- Mouse is not stable at all in the game (you cant even move)
2- You cant change options , once you do that the game will crush
3- once the game crush or shutdown you cant open it again (you need to install it again)
4- you cant connect to outside server (needs open ports)

Overall it was Nice Experience!!
