Installing the FA on Ubuntu

I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 11.04 on my laptop and
lost my FA installation. Oops. So I tried installing
again. The process that worked for me is:
Create a directory to mount the ISO to:
> sudo mkdir /media/tmp
Change to the directory where the ISO file is:
> cd ~/audi/etka # your directory will differ
Mount the ISO file:
> sudo mount -o loop ETKA7.ISO /media/tmp # your ISO may differ
The install tries to access Z:/et_inst. Wine assigns Z:
as the root directory /, so you need to set up a symbolic
link from where the et_inst is to /et_inst:
> sudo ln -s /media/tmp/et_inst /et_inst
> wine /media/tmp/setup.exe # you need to install wine first
# sudo apt-get install wine
I couldn't use the mouse to select options, so I just hit Enter.
While it was installing, I had time to think; maybe using the tab
and space bar will let you change the options.
It takes about a half hour to install all the files.
After that, you can run it:
Click on the Dash Home icon.
Enter ETKA in the search box.
Select the ETKA logo and Hans is your Onkel.
You can also drag-and-drop the icon to the Unity launcher panel.
