You just have to install the ia-32libs. To do that on later versions of Ubuntu, just enter the following commands one after the another and you are done!! sudo -i cd /etc/apt/sources.list.d echo "deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ raring main restricted universe multiverse" >ia32-libs-raring.list apt-get update apt-get install ia32-libs

I'm working on the same thing. The latest version comes with an installer so you just need to execute sudo ./linux-install.sh To execute it should just be ./fightcade There is a WiKi post about it here. https://code.google.com/p/groovyarcade/wiki/FightCade_Install_HowTo?ts=1430474430&updated=FightCade_Install_HowTo

Here's a list of the dependencies from Utopic. They're all available in Vivid, so I'm not sure why kdegames is gone. http://packages.ubuntu.com/utopic/kdegames bomber (>= 4:4.11.3) arcade spaceship game bovo (>= 4:4.11.3) gomoku (five in line) board game granatier (>= 4:4.11.3) Bomberman clone kapman (>= 4:4.11.3) Pac-Man clone katomic (>= 4:4.11.3) ...

If you still have the controller and still need to fix the issue: Unplug the Xbox from the power brick. Unplug the brick from the wall and wait for the light to go out. Plug the controller in. Finally, plug the system back in and turn it on. The controller should come back on. This worked for me, at least on an Xbox 360.

Someone helped me on playonlinux forum and the solution is simple. Response: " You can try "fixing" this by creating shortcuts manually (Configure button > (select the virtual drive) > General tab > "Make a shortcut from this virtual drive" button) "

I had an HP laptop with much the same problem. I replaced it with an All-In-One, hoping that would make a difference. It didn't. There are various threads about changing the video drivers. I tried to do that and I'm not sure if I succeeded, but in any event the problem remains. So I'm returning the machine to Amazon, where I bought it. I don't know if ...

Bookworm adventures is a windows game. You would need to either use windows or use an emulator like wine.

Probably the CD must be having .exe application test if its Linux supported. try navigating to the cd and typing ./configure make make install If its Linux supported this wil do the trick or else you'll have to google for the linux version of the software

I had the same problem, the only solution I found was to play the game in windowed mode. To do so, open the Gothic.INI file in the System directory, and change (it should be line 157) zStartupWindowed=0 to zStartupWindowed=1 After this, I restart the game a couple of times and usually the second time the keyboard finally works. By the way, I only had ...

For anyone who is having this problem, I managed to solve it. I hooked the mouse up to a windows system, installed the software, and assigned keystroke macros to the keys that weren't working (ctrl-c, crtl-x, ect.) This allowed me to assign the buttons in game. This is a nice work around until Logitech finally gives us Linux support!

By default Steam stores games in your home directory (hence home partition) under ~/.local/share/Steam, not in the root partition - Steam I don't think is made to have games available system-wide. When you install a game it gives you a option to install it elsewhere: As you can see above, I have created a folder extra in the root partition under which I ...

U don't need to create /boot. If u want have 2 systems, u can install grub on /.(/ would have 10/20 GB) So 2 partition(/,/home) will be good and u can choose where install game on steam. If u have more than 4/8 GB don't create swap cause it ll be not used.

How can I make Ubuntu install without nouveaux and nvidia drivers? My suggestion for this one is a very advanced one. You could make a custom ubuntu image that will allow you to remove packages you don't want, and add packages that you do. Including changing grub before you make your image so it won't boot into a graphical mode. Here's the link to a guide ...

There are only 2 ways. 1.) Virtual Machine - Virtual Box (the free and worst thing you could use for gaming) or VMware (not free but runs circles around Virtual box in benchmarks). 2.) WINE/PlayonLinux - this is what most ppl use and it works for most everything. if you have problems with certain programs in WINE try going to the appdp.winehq.org and ...

Or You could use a dual boot, that way you would have two systems but completely independent and with full performances on booth.

You could do a virtual machine, but aside from that it's impossible without Wine.

Unfortunately, m64py was not a working solution for me and "trial and error" is too cumbersome. Here is a solution anybody currently running mupen64plus, with or without a gui, should be able to use. You will need the joystick calibration tool jscal to determine which button is which. For help with that, see Ubuntu Forums - Gaming & Leisure - HOWTO : ...

The error is because this is a 32-bit game that you are trying to run in 64-bit Linux. I worked through the errors by googling error messages to figure out what packages I was missing. I ended up installing the following packages to get the game to run: sudo apt-get install libxxf86vm1:i386 libglu1-mesa:i386 libopenal1:i386 libssl1.0.0:i386

I don't like Rhythmbox. I use Banshee instead (which comes as the default on Linux Mint and, as far as I'm concerned, should come as the default on Ubuntu). Banshee has a similar appearance to Rhythmbox, but I find that it runs smoother and better. You can find it in the Ubuntu Software Center by simply searching Banshee. Then, to remove Rhythmbox, you ...

The Windows Media Player itself can be made to work but is not a good fit for Ubuntu. As I don't like rhythmbox neither, so I just use VLC player to play all of my media. The advantage of VLC (for me, might be a disadvantage to you) is that it doesn't contain a media library at all! To remove rhythmbox and install VLC player: sudo apt-get purge ...

Connecting inside your LAN: Just type in the local IP, the one output from "ifconfig" or "ip address". To have people outside your LAN connect: Forward a port to your game server's local IP address. In order to not have to adjust the forwarding all the time, you'll probably want to assign your game server a static IP address from your router. Anyone ...

Steam for Windows under Wine works wonderfully. It lets me play Unturned and Terraria (the two main games I cannot play on linux) without issues (so far). Moreover, if the game you are looking at is a source engine game, such as Team Fortress 2 (which is, by the way, also available on Steam for Linux natively,) then you may run into some text rendering ...

You can use gsettings from the terminal. First open terminal and then you will have to find the current location with this: gsettings get org.gnome.rhythmbox.rhythmdb locations You will get one or more paths like this ['file:///home/user/Music'] In your case if the NTFS partition is mounted in the /dev/sda* it will something like ['file:///dev/sda*'] so ...

According to the Ubuntu bug tracker this seems like a confirmed bug. The more specific bug related to this can be found here. Current workaround based on the conversations is regression (regress to 14.04.1 or earlier).

I wouldn't use that dialogue as an indication of anything. It's just a pretty screen with high-level info. I'd suggest using vendor-issued tools like nvidia-settings (GUI) or nvidia-smi (CLI) to work out what's there. Even neutral things like lspci will tell you what's plugged in.

I fixed it by following some advice found on this forum. In case the link is broken, here is a synopsis of what I did: Create a new virtual drive as 32 bit windows XP Install the following libraries with PlayOnLinux: dx9d36, mono28, msxml3, mfc42 Download dnsapi.dll and put it into windows/system32 in the virtual drive directory Download OriginSetup.exe ...

In my personal 20 years experience setting up gaming computers for fun and sometimes profit, I've setup a few "gaming laptops", and recurrently learned the same lesson; Laptop/notbook PCs tend to have overheating problems when their graphics chipsets are pushed to their limits. One of the features of STEAM is the efforts the operators go to to help ...

Assuming the file is downloaded and extracted into your ~/Downloads folder, run the following commands in an open terminal to run the game: cd ~/Downloads/Linux chmod +x "SUPERHOT September 2013.x86" ./'SUPERHOT September 2013.x86' If you need to, start over and run the following commands in an open terminal one by one to download, and run the game: wget ...
