How-To: Elder Scrolls Online Beta – Certificate issues in Wine on Ubuntu
One of our friends from the shop was kind enough to give us a friend code he got for participating in the Elder Scrolls Online Beta.
I used this code last weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it along with making my first gameplay video of it, (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ngoPWVFVeO0/)[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ngoPWVFVeO0]
One issue was getting it running in Wine (http://www.winehq.org/) on Ubuntu, yes I know it’s designed for Windows, but some of us just enjoy the grief of trying to play Windows games on Linux.
I ran into some issues with opening the launcher, in the form of a “Certiciate Authentication Failed” error message. After trawling the Wine forums for help I found a link to Internetz blog (http://blog.internetz.me/) with a solution.
Simply follow the commands he lays out and you will soon be updating and downloading the latest update and be ready to play in a few long hours.
Stay tuned for some more videos and articles.
