Hello everyone, I'm new here and I need a little bit of help.

I'm running WINE 0.9.59 on Ubuntu 7.04

For starters I'm trying to get steam games to work on wine. I can get steam installed, and I log in fine. but when I go to launch a game it says "the latest version of Microsoft DirectX is needed to play this game"

So I look around the internet on how to installed dx on wine and I find this:

I follow the instructions here perfectly, but when I go to install DXSETUP.exe It stalls on the initializing step and I get this readout:

daniel at ubuntu:~/dx$ wine DXSETUP.exe

fixme:actctx:parse_depend_manifests Could not find dependent assembly L"Microsoft.Windows.Common-Controls"

Ive also tried installing dx9 with wine-doors but that hasnt seemed to work either

So.... is there any way I can get dx9 to work? am I doing something wrong on the install step of dx? Or is there possibly any way to trick steam into thinking that I am running dx9?

Thanks for the help in advanced.
