I have just installed PoL 4.0.14 on my Arch 64 box and I'm trying to install Borderlands GOTY edtion (Steam) and Magicka (Steam). I'm using the scripts that are included with PoL. In the case of Magicka PoL installs Mono 2.6, directx_Jun2010_redist.exe and XNA framework 3.1. Then it proceeds to install Steam itself and installs the game. When finished I click proceed in the PoL menu and then I try to launch the game. Steam then launches and tries to install .Net, directx and XNA 3.1. Then I get an error regarding PrintFilterPipelineSvc.exe and it has to close. Finally I just get an error saying "** ERROR ** implement type compare for 1b! aborting..."

In the case of Borderlands GOTY PoL just hangs saying "installing" and Steam is running but nothing else happens. I tried then to install borderlands in Steam and running it but I get a message saying "the game is currently unavailable".

Forgot to mention that I'm using wine 1.3.26 as the script sugests and I'm on KDE 4.7.4 (64 bit). Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
