I apologize profusely if I'm doing this wrong. I'm a complete noob at this forum as well as Linux. Actually, I know more about Linux than this forum business. OK, here's the problem. I have Linux Mint 18 cinnamon that I installed on Friday. All I really want is play the Sims 3. I own it on Origin. I have installed, uninstalled, reinstalled, screamed, cursed, and even quit so many times over the last few days I've lost count. I have followed your beautiful instructions to the letter. I am still unable to get it to work. Origin loads beautifully. The Sims 3 sits and does nothing. I've run it through debugging but none of it makes sense enough for me to fix. I'm disabled and don't have much of a life. I just want my game to work. Can you, or someone out there, help me? Please? Pretty please?
