Simply running wine /path/to/skyrim.exe should open Skyrim using Wine.

The dota 2 Reborn, is not yet officially released for all platforms. It is mentioned in their release page in multi platform section. The source 2 engine that is used for the game is not yet compatible with the linux and mac versions. Since you are using 15.04 beta, there are more likely chances of getting these errors.

It's not Ubuntu question, but primarily Wine. See their site https://appdb.winehq.org/. There you can see list of Windows applications and their Wine tests (for different versions, distributions and etc). They have good rank and description (usually) for wine abilities for running different applications or workarounds to run something using Wine.

There are a few ways to do it, you could download steam for windows using wine then download the games, or if you had enough ram you could use virtualbox with a windows os. and if you're a hardcore gamer you could download windows alongside ubuntu.

Probably your external drive is formatted as FAT32. That doesn't have the permissions. If you don't care much about the interoperability with other OSes, reformat the external drive to ext4.

I looked back through my terminal history and this is what I did prior to making the post: sudo apt-get remove --purge steam-launcher I then restarted the computer and downloaded a fresh copy of the .deb installer for Steam from https://steamcdna.akamaihd.net/client/installer/steam.deb After installing, it went through the same process and failed to find ...

The default steam libary is in ~/.local/share/Steam. I'm not sure if it's possible to change but if you changed it you would know where it is.

00 02 * * * DISPLAY=:0.0 steam (Thank you to muru for giving me the clue to figure this out!) This line in cron will start Steam every night at 02:00 (2:00AM). The breakdown is this: the first part is standard cron "minutes, hours, days (of the month), months, days (of the week)", so the 00 means at zero minutes past the hour; the 02 means at 2 on the 12 ...

The best way is to use software center, and search for stream and install it from the software center, and it probably work best this way, or else you need to install wine1.7, and open the downloaded exe file whit wine loader, and to install wine you have to enter this in the terminal: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:wine-ubuntu/ppa sudo apt-get ...

The simplest way to get steam on the system is to download the .deb file from the valve developer community. You can get the download here.

This might work: cd ~/steamcmd ./steamcmd.sh https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/SteamCMD#Linux.2FOS_X These are the commands to install updates: Install or update the app using the app_update command (supplying a Steam Application ID). To also validate the app, add validate to the command. To download a beta branch, use the -beta option – for ...

IT LIVES!!! After quite a bit of trial and error, I got it working! I had to go into my bumblebee.conf and set Driver=nvidia and then go and change the [driver-nvidia] settings from nvidia-current to nvidia-352, then manually set the BusID in /etc/bumblebee/xorg.conf.nvidia, but now it works! ...Hopefully it'll stay working...

In order to get rid of these thing you need to use autoremove instead of remove so it will be like this sudo apt-get autoremove steam-launcher After you remove Steam, you can easily install it back on ur system with the .deb file downloaded from steam official website. Regards

You could try doing this sudo apt-get purge steam-launcher and then install steam again. purge - Purge is identical to remove except that packages are removed and purged. Purge meaning that any configuration files are deleted too. Let me know if this works or not. Also try this and see which all directories have steam installed in it dpkg -L ...

Try resolving the dependencies manually, i.e. apt-get install libcheese7 apt-get install libcheese-gtk23 apt-get install libglapi-mesa If that doesn't work, try using aptitude, as its dependency resolution is often more effective than apt-get apt-get install aptitude && aptitude -f install <thing-it-failed-on>

DirectX is a collection of a runtime and drivers. As Wine does not support the installation of Micro$oft Windows drivers, you cannot install just any version of DirectX. :-( Therefore, DirectX support needs to be enabled inside the Wine environment by the Wine developers. For more info on the current development of DirectX under wine, read this wine FAQ. ...

After multiple search attempts on the internet and after LOTS of trial and error, I can safely conclude that the main problem is the PPA xorg-edgers. If you have similar problems, you should remove whatever drivers you have from xorg-edgers and then ppa-purge it. If you don't know how to do it, then here's how. Install ppa-purge by... sudo apt-get install ...

You need the 32 bit libGL drivers (libgl1-mesaa-dri:i386). You can issue this command via terminal, sudo apt-get install libgl1-mesa-dri:i386 If you already have it, try reinstalling, sudo apt-get install --reinstall libgl1-mesa-dri:i386 Restart your computer and try again. If that doesn't work, check out this: Error loading libGL.so.1

So after 1,5 years of testing it seems I've finally solved this problem. All it took was sheding some light into the issue. Literally. This is what I was only able to see after putting some bright, direct light into my PCIe slot: I'm guessing this happened when I first inserted my video card into that slot. The card may have pushed a couple of pins ...

In the first case, the game complains about the absence of libtcmalloc_minimal.so.4 library. Probably, Steam or the game have their version of this lib inside the directory. Anyway, you can try install it from the Ubuntu repository. I don't now if it uses the 32 bits or 64 bits version, but you can try: For the 64 bits version sudo apt-get install ...

Has it worked on 14.04 for you before? Or are you new to Ubuntu? Most steam issues related to the client itself stem from the fact that the client is 32-bit for your OS is 64bit which has some issues on linux-based distros. I solved this issue myself with sudo apt-get install ia32-libs which removed my error message - which, granted, wasn't the same as ...

I've had exactly the same problem 1 hour ago. To fix it, edit the file .steam/steam/steamapps/common/Counter-Strike Global Offensive/csgo.sh Before the two lines that start with ${DEBUGGER} "${GAMEROOT}"/${GAMEEXE} you must add "primusrun" (maybe only one line is necessary, didn't tested): primusrun ${DEBUGGER} "${GAMEROOT}"/${GAMEEXE} -x "$ARGSFILE" and ...

The above answer should work, although I personally ran into some problems when attempting it. What worked for me was running the install from the terminal, rather than downloading the .deb from steampowered.com. All I did was run sudo apt-get install steam -y to get it installed. It loaded the EULA in the terminal, press tab a couple of times to select ok, ...

open a terminal and run: sudo apt-get remove --purge libglapi-mesa:i386 libcheese-gtk23 libcheese7 sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-upgrade sudo apt-get install libglapi-mesa:i386 libcheese-gtk23 libcheese7 sudo apt-get install steam

I had Steam issues with an older Ubuntu build and disabling the Steam overlay resolved them. That bug very well may have been resolved since then as it was some time ago. Not that it helps, but I think it was running through WINE when I experienced that.

Had an issue similar to this not so long ago on another system. The only way we could get the thing to work was to delete most of the files in the Steam folder and then download them again. If you do try this, make sure you do a backup first though.

Steam didn't work for me either from the Software Centre. I just used sudo apt-get install steam. This just worked.

When I say "run" I'm referring to running the command in Terminal which can be opened by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T Try running sudo apt-get install steam That should work, if not try this (adapted from the Steam Github README): run sudo apt-get install gdebi-core run wget -O ~/steam.deb https://media.steampowered.com/client/installer/steam.deb. run sudo gdebi ...

You should probably download the .deb from Steam instead of searching for it on the Software Center. There are two Steam applications, and only the .deb will give the right one to install. http://store.steampowered.com/about/

I had the same error problems. Here's what worked for me (finally): sudo apt-get install libgl1-mesa-dri-lts-trusty:i386 (this will download about 57 files) Then... sudo apt-get install libgl1-mesa-glx-lts-trusty:i386 (this will download about 23 files) Now when you run Steam, it will download an update and you should be off and running. Good luck!

Try with sudo apt-get -f install it should install all the unmet dependencies.

I just got the same problem on Debian. This is not about hidden password input. The terminal doesn't response to Enter either. The solution is to close the window and install required packages manually: sudo apt-get install libgl1-mesa-dri:i386 libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 libc6:i386 Then launch steam again, and the terminal won't appear.

Run this command sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-lts-trusty libgl1-mesa-glx-lts-trusty:i386 and reboot. This will install graphical stack of 12.04.5. It should work. It looks like you already removed xserver with some wrong commands. And also try this sudo apt-get install ppa-purge sudo ppa-purge ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa

You are in luck my friend. I have installed Ubuntu over the weekend and run into 10000 problems, one of which was this exact issue. I used these set of commands below to make it work. It's important that you follow the order that I issue the commands & also that you modify where it says "johnsmith" to your username within your home directory. rm -rf ...
