i have no problem running steam with wine 1.7.17 with arguements -no-dwrite

when i run counter-strike 1.6, when it finish loading, when i press the keyboard it freezes, but with just a mouse no problem

but when i open a shell within the steam.exe shortcut and run 

wine "C:\Program Files\Steam\Steam.exe" -no-dwrite

i have no problem playing with keyboard and mouse


is there a way to run this, i mean running the code within the shortcut

You should be able to prefix or suffix arguments in either:


PlayOnLinux -> Configure -> select the virtual drive -> General tab -> Arguments




PlayOnLinux -> Configure -> select the virtual drive -> Miscellaneous tab -> Command to execute before running the program
