Portal 2 requesting 'Steam service' in Linux / Wine
I just bought my first two games through Steam, the Portal bundle, and while Portal works perfectly (and is awesome!), Portal 2 badgers me for a Steam service when installing. WineHQ, the first port of call for Linux gamers, has no solutions yet as the game worked fine until recently. http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=23278 I'm not panicking, I'm sure this will be ported to Linux soon as part of the beta, but would be nice in the interim?

You should apply for beta testing steam on ubuntu...

I fixed it - I set the default Windows version in Winecfg to XP instead of 7.

There isn't one yet - download the Windows client and run in with Wine. The Linux client will only run Linux games.
