Not every Windows program is working on Wine. You can check the list of supported programs here. There's also PlayOnLinux, a software that uses Wine but it is easier thanks to a very intuitive GUI. Remember, sometimes it's better to use open-source software (like LibreOffice) than emulate Windows closed-source programs (like the MS Office suite).

If you use steam you can enable this option in the steam overlay settings and it should work with any game that works with the steam overlay. It lets you choose what corner of the screen you want the counter to be in and I recommend using the high contrast color setting so that you can easily see the fps counter at all times.

Alright, I found the problem. Because my embedded video card's memory wasn't enough I had to put a setting in winetricks so that by default my video card memory is 500 MB.

I am the maintainer of two games on Wine HQ. So I can tell from experience. Gaming Under Wine is not that BAD. I maintain NFS Hot Pursuit and NFS Most Wanted on Wine HQ and most reviews are positive on Wine. Being an Game Maintainer I can understand what Wine can and cant do. Most games that are more than 4-5 years old have high chance of running well ...

Despite some of the comments made here, wine is not up to playing modern games. Check this database: https://appdb.winehq.org/ for any titles you would like to play. I recommend dual boot, not without a lack of trying to the contrary. James

The game Taquin and all other games are not included in any PPA. If you want to install it, then you have to compile it yourself. Here is the source code.

You may not want to hear this but if you enjoy a lot of Windows-only software and need it to perform as well as it would on Windows then dual-booting - having an actual bare-metal Windows installation - is the best way to achieve this. Any kind of emulation layer, and Wine is an emulation layer despite what people say the name stands for these days, has the ...

You cannot just tell an application to use more memory; it will only request and use as much memory as it has been programmed to do so. If the application itself doesn't let you increase the memory in its own configuration then there is no way to force it to do so.


0

What I will suggest here is, try killing the other unnecessary processes when you run the game. Then there would be more memory available for all the remaining processes, and therefore the performance will increase. In fact it should increase then.

You probably won't be able to play it, see the Warface WineHQ rating. However, you can still try it, but I'd recommend installing it using playonlinux. Playonlinux installs some additional libraries, makes it easy to manage separate wine versions for separate applications, and gives each application a separate wine config. Install playonlinux: sudo ...

Try vokoscreen. It's free, and you can get it from the Ubuntu Software Center or in a terminal: sudo apt-get install vokoscreen You can change the filetype easily, the files aren't too large, and it can also record the computers sound.

The library libstdc++.so.6 in Ubuntu 15.04 has CXXABI_1.3.8: % strings /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6 | grep CXXABI_1.3.8 CXXABI_1.3.8 Make the LD_LIBRARY_PATH changes reversed.

The only working methods for gaming with Linux is Steam or with native games (like Baldur's gate and Neverwinter Nights). Gaming with wine will be not as good as gaming it natively on Windows. Your hardware is never going to fully used when using wine. All those games you mention will have each their own quirks and their own installation method. The play on ...

Just as hint for optimal wine (in case you cannot accept or cannot afford the more mighty valve-package) : try to build two or three differant additional partitions as logical partition (with one extended partition) in your next new-installation (easier test this on an usb-harddisk first to practice around) then in different partition you could install ...

Try running: export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ && sudo ldconfig && ./hon-x86_64. The libstdc++.so file in /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-linux-gnu/4.9.2 is not the one that should be used. Also, a file is being specified (libstdc++.so). You should be specifying the directory the file is in (/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/). ...

Well, after some searching for the answer I found the cause. Num Lock was on, turning it off solved the problem. Strange that it only affects the game and nothing else.

I know this tread is a little old, but I just ran into this problem myself and solved it. In the install folder that wine uses to run the game, there is a DOSBOX.CONF file (mine read dosboxDK.conf, where DK was the initials of the game). If you edit this as you would the normal dosbox.conf you will get the results you want.

I agree with the first answer - Steam does work great with Linux, but some fonts and other graphical issues may crop up occasionally. By that I mean that the fonts on the "Updating" window appear more blocky and without anti-aliasing than the counterpart on Windows. Some games may not work correctly due to unimplemented functions in Wine - if you have a ...

After some research I have managed to write a functional script. It will automatically disable touchpad while full screen application is active and mouse is connected. So it is suitable for full screen games. What you need to do is copy the text into Gedit and save file as e. g. : .auto_disable_touchpad.sh (Since it got . in front of name it is hidden file, ...
