From a 7+ year experience I can say the following: I have tried Wine since around 2005-2006. Also tried Cedega (Dead for me after Wine 1.2 came out) and PlayOnLinux (PoL for short). I have also seen how the developing process in Wine under Ubuntu has been quickly catching up to the latest games. For Wine installation and configuration please see How to ...

Update: PlayOnLinux have finally added this feature so you do not need to do this manually any more! But you still have to add "$(echo "$@" | sed -e 's:/*/:\\:g')" in the end. First make sure you are showing hidden files by open homefolder. Click on edit then preferences and tick the bar. Close the window. Then you type the command sudo nautilus Type in ...

First Unmount it: sudo umount /media/(diskname) Then mount it where you want: mount -t auto /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom0 I think there is another (easier) solution to your problem: just make a symbolic link: sudo mkdir /media/cdrom0 sudo ln -s /media/(diskname) /media/cdrom0

Go to your World of Warcraft wine drive folder, go to the WTF folder and then edit your config.wtf file and add this line at the end (or modify it if already exists): SET gxApi "opengl". This will make your wow.exe use opengl everytime you run it.

Installing from the Ubuntu repository: PlayOnLinux is available in the Software Center on Ubuntu versions from 12.04 and up. However, if you want the latest version, you will need to add the PlayOnLinux repository. Installing from the PlayOnLinux repository: The following example is for Ubuntu 12.04 LTS wget -q "http://deb.playonlinux.com/public.gpg" ...

Sorry to give you the wrong answer, but I really doubt this will ever be truly supported. Some people might actually get it working someday, but Microsoft will most certainly never support this officially; or even make things easy for the community, for that matter. From what I know, running the MS Office suite itself is horribly painful, it becomes more ...

You can use the Mono Development IDE to write .NET code in Ubuntu, rather than trying to use a Microsoft product in a non-Microsoft OS (which others have rightly pointed out is never going to be supported, easy, or in MS' best interests). It has most of the features of Visual Studio, and will run faster and be more stable. To install monodevelop, use ...

The answer is yes. In fact the other two are also based on Wine. Considering just Wine, see this question. But later versions of MSOffice, 2007 and 2010, are much easier to install in Wine than older versions like 2003 and XP. For 2007 and later see my other answer. (Personally, I was not able to install msoffice xp or 2003 in Wine, although I deem it ...

In order to activate Office with a KMS you will have to edit a number of registry values. So first start the Wine registry editor for your office prefix: Open PlayOnLinux Choose Configure Select Office 2010 from list of installed applications on left Click on the Wine Tab Click Registry Editor Next you will have to navigate to the key ...

I hope you installed Ubuntu alongside Windows because if this fails then you can always go back to playing the games on Windows and doing work etc... on Ubuntu. Let's go through this step by step: League of Legends: WineHQ page World of Warcraft: WineHQ page Both LoL and WoW seem to have good test reports for Wine 1.5 (beta) so run the following ...

If you have Wine as well as PlayOnLinux, here's what you do: Go to your Wine's system32 directory (~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32) and rename riched20.dll and riched32.dll so that they're backed up. Download RichEdit30.exe (I got it from here or here) and save it to that same system32 directory. Run "wine richedit30.exe" and button through the dialogue. ...

Using linux means using free/open source software. There are workarounds like wine (or playonlinux) and virtualbox to install windows programs, but they are limited. Wine/Playonlinux has limited support of applications (means not all will work), whereas in virtualbox they will work (you basically create a windows virtual machine), but you will need some RAM ...

Ok, i'll try to explain (sorry for my english, it's not native). At first - install Evernote as usual. When you finish - connection error will appear. It's ok. Close the application. Go to Play on Linux main menu -> Utilities -> wine versions managment. Install wine 1.4.1 (latest stable version with no ssl bug) Select Evernote and in settings choose wine ...

I have very good experiences with Codeweavers CrossOver. I use Office Word, Excell and Powerpoint regularly within my Ubuntu 12.04 system. Without any major problem. It works really well. You should give it a try. If you want to keep using it, you have to pay (once or a yearly small fee, I don't remember), but for me it's definitely worth the money. ...

When you install applications with PlayOnLinux, there is an option to add the a launcher (Desktop file) to the menu. This will create application launcher in ~/.local/share/applications, which means that the launcher will show up in the Unity Dash. If this does not work, you can choose the option to place a launcher on the Desktop, and then manually move it ...

Sort of but it's probably not worth it... The game itself mostly works. Moving, shooting, etc. There are problems with the HUD that means it doesn't show (fairly inconvenient) and like most games through Wine, there are some performance issues that may stop you playing on a low-end computer. Online play doesn't work unless you play on a non-PunkBuster ...

I cannot give you any sure solution for the video not playing, since this is probably a bug in WINE. You could try running the game using a newer WINE version (I will update my answer a bit later) in PlayOnLinux. To fix the problem of the game resizing your screen, you need to set WINE (in PlayOnLinux's "bottle") to use a virtual desktop. To do this: ...

"Not found" errors from the official repositories are usually a sign that your local package list is out of date. If this is a very new install (as your post suggests) this is even more likely. The installer really aught to do this but there you go. Run a sudo apt-get update (or use a graphical package manager to update) and you should find that those sorts ...

Your first step should be to complain. I'm shocked there are still businesses pushing things that require a set browser. It's reflective of a development process that went out the window over a decade ago. This is their active choice. That's the why. You can usually work around simple blocks with User Agent Switcher. I've used it for some banking in the ...

It is a bad idea to run Adobe Photoshop CC in wine because wine doesn't support this version of Photoshop. So what's the deal? install other working version of it. See the rating by wine @ [here]http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=application&iId=17 . Use Platinum or gold for better working. CS 6 works fine under many versions of wine see ...

The best option I have found is to install PlayOnLinux. PlayOnLinux uses the wine technology but will also install extra libraries specific to certain programs. The last I checked, it supported Office 2010. I have it running with Excel, Word, OneNote, Sharepoint and Powerpoint.
