    Which Linux OS and version u r using now, that is important..... also ur comp confs r required, cause u mentioned here u wanna play some games ! There r so many flavors in Linux OS and though their core architecture is almost same, but their file maintenance may be differ from one to another (for eg. firefox / java path and installed dirs.....) If u r using Firefox then simply type: about:plugins on address bar and observe which plugins r already loaded. Thoug more details r required.

    What game? Is it one with a Linux version?

    If you're running Fedora, Java can be installed by using AutoPlus. There are links to it in the fedora forums. Here's the link to the thread: http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=171660

    Where did you get the idea to create a symbolic link? Would you like to give us a link to the how-to that told you to do that? Is that how-to where you learned you needed some plugins? Are they plugins for Java, or, are they plugins for a browser?

    Questions that are vague won't get you any kind of useful answer.

    what is the game and what is the linux version you use

  • Sakralarab
    Wine is the most advanced compatibility layer (W ine I s N ot an E mulator ;-)) you will find.

    If you are not happy with it, there are two other projects based on wine but with some tweaks for the support of actual games like Half Life 2, World of Warcraft, etc:

    Codeweavers CrossOver Games - http://www.codeweavers.com/products/cxgames/


    TransGamings Cedega - http://www.cedega.com/
    Maybe this will satisfy your needs.
