It will most probably not work Like many games, Titanfall was programed for Windows. While someone has tried and succeeded to install with Wine he wasn't able to start it. The situation might have improved since then... or not. Setting up and configuring wine for a game isn't for the faint at heart. It's much easier using PlayOnLinux, but I think this ...

This happened to me.. but somehow I got it working. ._. 1. Make sure there's no updates..? 2. Make sure you have LoL installed in your Applications folder 3. Make sure Firewall is turned off (should be turned off) 4. If none of this works - well - repair it. It worked after I repaired.

I too have been working hard on hacking my way through this. I finally got the game to run when I figured out that my graphics card drivers weren't doing me any favors (literally) kill and or remove all your video card drivers and reinstall ones you're absolutely sure are correct. All the other workarounds that I tried wouldn't get me passed the launcher. ...

You already tried AisleRiot Solitaire? It's a huge collection of many different one-player card games, also including FreeCell afaik. I think it comes preinstalled with Ubuntu (at least it was preinstalled on my 14.10).

I used Kpatience (kpat). It is quite stable, good looking and it has many hotkeys like Ctrl-Z for Undoing. Just go to the Ubuntu Software Center available on the Desktop's left side. Then enter the search text patience. Kind regards and happy gaming.

The error Assertion 'p' failed at pulsecore/memblock.c:836, function pa_mempool_block_size_max(). Aborting. means that the program, in a consistency check, found something that is not supposed to happen. Dazed and confused (cit), it is aborting because it doesn't know how to continue. This is clearly a bug of the software, which is an alpha release, so ...

Why don't you install it for real? If you want to play games, I suppose you are not just trying Ubuntu but want to keep it. Therefore a real installation (dual-boot with your current system) would bring you definitely better performance. You can also install Ubuntu on a USB-drive or use a Live-CD with a persistence USB-stick (boot from CD, but save any data ...

Few things to consider here, PC(host machine) needs to have enough RAM more than you are expecting to allocate for your VM Your PC processor must support hardware virtualization, if not virtualbox will work just as a regular software which will show very poor VM performance. for this check whether your PC processor ...

I solved this thanks to an answer posted on the forums (answer by Metaph on page 2). Before playing the game, just do: $ sudo sh -c "echo 0 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_timestamps" Note that this may have a negative impact on your browsing experience (e.g. slower streaming), so you should turn it back on once you've finished playing, and I strongly ...

I do the same thing, apparently it's a server-side issue. Firstly, using some google Zen skills, I found this: https://downdetector.com/status/league-of-legends. Also, pinging the login server my Box tried to connect to gives some strange results: % ping 185.40.64.65 PING 185.40.64.65 (185.40.64.65) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from 185.40.64.65: ...

Try going to game settings under the options menu and mark "Launch 32-bit client (Instead of 64-bit)". It seems the 64 bit one fails at the gate, at least for me.

PulseAudio libraries If someone need to handle PA adequately seems to Windows controls they can try their programming skills to maintain their own GUI library to routing PulseAudio.

I've figured out how to do this, in part because my system already has some of the unusual equipment needed. You see, for under $10 typically you can buy a usb audio adapter you can plug your system speakers into and tell your computer to default to using that one for system sound. On my Ubuntu system, my ubuntu skype, seems to prefer the on-board audio, ...
