Im trying to install steam on suse with wine but when I run:

# wine SteamInstall.exe

I get this message:

Application tried to create a window, but no driver could be loaded.
Make sure that your X server is running and that $DISPLAY is set correctly.

Is it soumething wrong with my display settings or what? What can I do to solve this?

It sounds like your $DISPLAY variable isn't set correctly. What I would try first is something like this:

# DISPLAY=0:0 wine SteamInstall.exe

And see what happens.

I've read that this problem is quite common on Wine, and there often isn't an end-all fix for this. Is this application listed under the "supported-applications" in the Win App database?

Also, have you ever used wine to sucessfully run applications that use windows? Console apps running on wine tend to have less problems, so you may have to do additional configuration to get Win32 apps working.

I tried the command you suggested, but I get the same message again.

And, no I have'nt used wine to run an windows application earlier, I have just started using it.So then I mabye have to configure it?
Is it advanced to configure it correctly?

I would first try running a simple app like Notepad before running SteamInstall. I believe it's automatically installed with Wine. Try something like

wine notepad.exe

And see if it works. If it can't find it, it may not be in the path, and you'll have to do something like:

# cd ~/.wine/
# ls
# cd c/Program\ Files (or maybe c_drive)
# wine notepad.exe

Tell us if notepad and other simple Windows programs like Explorer work.

I tried to start notepad like you described but i get this message in both cases:

err:imagelist:ImageList_ReplaceIcon no color!
err:imagelist:ImageList_ReplaceIcon no color!
err:imagelist:ImageList_ReplaceIcon no color!
err:imagelist:ImageList_ReplaceIcon no color!

but I got cmd to work, I also tried with explorer.exe but it did'nt work. Mabye It's soumething with mt video-card?
I changed videocard last week, does that matter?

Try configuring Wine with winecfg . This will allow you to configure video card settings and other such display things so that Wine will run properly.

You may also want to take a peek at ~/.wine, which is another wine configuration file.

LOL, then I rather be without games

I got steam/cs working no problem using the latest wine in ubuntu.

wine SteamInstall.exe then followed the install wizard.

Only thing i had to change was ALSA/OSS settings then it worked fine

What version of wine are you using?
