I'm really lost

Trying to override the "not enough space" problem

Hello guys.
I have been trying to install games with Wine 1.4 on Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit (using the default Unity setup). I can play SOME games, but the problem is that Steam is telling me that I only have 14-ish gigabytes on my drive. That leaves me with Left 4 Dead 2, and not much else. This is probably because when you're using Wine, you're emulating Windows with Windows storage that is seperate from your partition, since you're making the installation program think you're running Windows (is this even accurate?)

I know I have enough space on my Linux partition as a whole (I'm dual-booting, and I'm really liking Linux so far). I remember setting aside 80GB and performing the 30GB install with Wubi. SO how do I get Steam, and other installation programs, to use the space that I clearly have available for games (where the rest of my Ubuntu partition is)? I want the safest method possible for doing so.

Processor: Intel Core i5-2400 @ 3.10Ghz (4 CPUs) ~3.1Ghz
Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 (4GB VRAM)
Memory: 8GB

I get this

/dev/loop0       29G   26G  2.7G  91% /
udev            3.9G  4.0K  3.9G   1% /dev
tmpfs           1.6G  968K  1.6G   1% /run

/dev/sda2       852G  470G  383G  56% /media/AA2EB07D2EB0445B

What now?

That's what Steam is trying to tell me.
/dev/sda3 is definitely where my Linux is. The total Partition was 80GB and I used 30GB to install the Ubuntu OS. /dev/sda2 is probably the Windows part, since I know I have 383 GB left on that. My goal is to get my games installed on /dev/sda3

/dev/loop0       29G   26G  2.7G  91% /
udev            3.9G  4.0K  3.9G   1% /dev
tmpfs           1.6G  968K  1.6G   1% /run
none            5.0M     0  5.0M   0% /run/lock
none            3.9G  1.2M  3.9G   1% /run/shm
/dev/sda3        80G   30G   51G  37% /host
/dev/sr0        699M  699M     0 100% /media/Ubuntu
/dev/sda2       852G  470G  383G  56% /media/AA2EB07D2EB0445B

Copy ~/.PlayOnLinux directory on this other filesystem, then use a symlink or mount --bind to make it look like it's still in ~/.PlayOnLinux.

The reality is that your linux partition is /.

/dev/sda3 is a physical partition, and I don't think that your wubi could be installed here.

What is the partition format by the way?

It's NTFS
Also, I looked at Gparted, and the NTFS partition had a little warning when you looked at its properties, saying that it failed to mount or something

Yep, that won't work. Wine needs a plain extended partition

Ah, thanks. Well, it looks like I'll have to redo my installation of Linux. But at least now, I know what I gotta do. Thanks again :)
