Try checking out this video www.youtube.com/watch?v=j8hRxlyeyIo If you make a new starter on your desktop, then type "xgamma -gamma 1" (w/o quotes) as the command to run. Quickest way to reset gamma. You should leave the game set to fullscreen and set the "Screen Size" option to the resolution you chose in winecfg. The game will change your screen's ...

I had the same problem with Ubuntu 14.4 on an AMD64 box; Not sure how I ended up in that state, but it was obvious that, inside of firefox, the pipelight/silverlight plugin tried to load two dynamic libraries, and could not find them. Both were attempted to be loaded as 32bit variant (more specificaly from a directory explicitly designated for 32bit ...

Or just download https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-wine/+archive/ppa/+files/wine1.6_1.6.1-0ubuntu1~ppa1~precise1_amd64.deb and install using software centre

Depends on game. Most modern games require proper installation in the registry so it would be better to first install the game through Wine. But if you know what keys game uses, you can easily import them inside Wine registry. It is simple ini-like text file $WINEPREFIX/system.reg and $WINEPREFIX/user.reg. To use multiple drives, you have to tell Wine ...

It would perform very poorly. Unless you have a really powerful computer I would not even attempt it. Dual booting is the way to go. I would also highly recommend looking into an SSD just for Windows 7 so that you can reduce boot times as much as possible. In conclusion, VM is not the way to go if you want to play games your pc. Hope it helps! Matt

VirtualBox Gaming is in general not a good experience. You wont have the great 3D support that you desire and applications that require a lot of resources will lag. Some games will probably work, like minecraft and minesweeper. Heavy games like GTA IV will not work Checkout Gaming with Virtualbox, has it worked for you?

Try to install playonlinux package through apt-get sudo apt-get install playonlinux Sometimes Software center fails to detect the internet connection but terminal does.

The problem here is two packages are installing the same binary file '/usr/lib/*/libOpenCL.so' without declaring a breaks/replaces or conflicts relationship between them, and so apt-get does not know to remove the other. This either needs to be fixed in nvidia-cuda-toolkit or ocl-icd. ocl-icd is shipping this file in ocl-icd-libopencl1 instead of ...

iTunes is generally considered not to work well under Wine. The default version of Wine in 14.04 is 1.6.2 so you could try upgrading to the PPA development build... But I doubt that'll fix much. I certainly wouldn't try to use it to manage hardware. In my opinion, that is inviting an expensive disaster. The only real alternative I have is running a real ...

On the install of ubuntu I'm using I don't have a full install but the person that answered before me is right, it is a PPA repository. On other installs of Ubuntu, and Ubuntu based distributions/flavors of Linux, this has successfully and totally removed the program and all remnants of it: Run these commands one at a time: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get ...

I found ~/.config/monitors.xml where you can set which monitor is the primary one (primary:yes) so wine displays Skyrim on my right monitor while my left one's still displaying unity and firefox :)

Thanks to RevExNET comment I solved this with the following command: sudo apt-get install libgl1-mesa-dri libgl1-mesa-dri:i386 For me, only the :i386 was missing, but I'm guessing you need both. I believe this is an issue faced by those using intel graphic cards.

You don't have to use sudo to run Wine applications. It changes the user ID to root's ID. And running Wine as root is very, very bad idea! Use just ./PhotoshopCS5Launcher.sh And it will start.

The easiest way to do it is to search for Wine in the Ubuntu Software Center and install it. If that isn't possible you can also download the same wine package from an Ubuntu mirror the hard way and double-click the wine .deb file that you downloaded to open it for installation in the Ubuntu Software Center. Either way you are installing the same wine ...

I received the same message after updating to 14.04 as well, and I'm just as curious to know why the nvidia-331 update package must be removed for WINE to work. In my case, this is not even an option, as it would break my current setup with switchable graphics. Hopefully, more information regarding this will emerge sooner or later. For now, however, there ...

Desktop files contain a command to open an application. It is not much more than a textfile, with the extension ".desktop". Although you can store these files anywhere, and run it as a standalone link to an application (that is: if you make it executable), the default locations are: `/usr/share/applications` (globally) or `~/.local/share/applications` ...

You wrongly entered the ppa name. The correct one is sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install wine

A .desktop file is a text file. You have to open a text editor, like Gedit and paste the content and save it.

Ubuntu comes with wine, it's just not one of the packages that's installed by default. You use the software centre to install it (here is a link). Ubuntu has come with Wine 1.4 since 12.04 and before that had Wine 1.2, but Ubuntu 14.04 is set to include Wine 1.6. Xubuntu is just Ubuntu with a different set of packages installed by default which modify the ...

The top answer in the page you linked to should contain enough information about how to do this. A .desktop file is one of many files in /usr/share/applications containing the information about software applications which should be launchable in the desktop environment. Note: this is for applications that will be made available to all users. Naturally, ...

According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Q&A_(Symantec), Q&A by Symantec has been superseded by Sesame Database Manager (Lantica Software, LLC). Thus, I recommend to give a try for the trial of Sesame Database Manager, as it also supports Linux, http://lantica.com/Support/downloads.html

I installed Wine 1.4 rc5 by compiling the source code and was compiled in a directory under Home. I found this and on the compiled Wine directory, I ran this : sudo make sudo make uninstall When I did the command, the compiled version was uninstalled successfully. I was able to install Wine 1.2 after I uninstalled the compiled program. So the ...

My first impression is that Wine is a simulated Windows environment which uses free (and presumably open source) libraries as an alternative to Microsoft's proprietary libraries. Those libraries produce the same input and output, yet use alternative means to process the data. This would explain why there is very little performance hit. Yes, that is ...

Some people have reported that BlackBerry Desktop Manager does work on Wine. Install PlayOnLinux: sudo apt-get install playonlinux Open it up and press Install. Press "Install non-listed program" at bottom left of the Install window. Configure your virtual drive. Untick the three "Wine prefix" boxes, and use 32-bit WIndows installation to play safe ...

You should check the WineHQ AppDB before assuming software works. Assuming we're talking about the same application, the Blackberry Desktop Software, the application is listed as "Garbage" on all versions of Wine with a lot of versions of the software, which means it has very little success of running in Wine. The best you could do is get a Windows 7 VM ...

Try running export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib32:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH If you're running 64-bit Ubuntu it searches the 64 libraries first, then fails and closes. This will instruct it to search the 32 library first. This is how I solved the issue with Civilization 4.

This works for me; creating "Word" desktop Icon as an example.... Look for the launcher "icon" you use to start the wine program via the "Search Applications" display in Dash; that "Search Applications" view "launcher" is next to the "home" icon at the bottom of Dash screen (dash needs to be out of full-screen mode). Click and drag the icon you use to ...

I installed CrossOver 12.5.0 and purchased the license for full unlimited use. Then I created a winxp bottle and installed .NET 3.5 framework and Visual C++ 6.0 redistributable before installing Halo. In the end I had to spend money to play my copy of Halo.

cd to the game dir, then try optirun wine speed.exe or optirun bash wine speed.exe

This is because the game is checking for a license. Install PlayOnLinux and then try it out. Edit based on comments: This game has been confirmed to run on Ubuntu 13.04 i386. Set Wine prefix as Windows 7 and try again. Try this beta script: http://www.playonlinux.com/repository/app.php?script=863 This may or may not work on your PC.

Uninstall did this, not purge. Don't feel bad, I think we've all done it at one point in time or another. Run the command again, however, this time run the command sudo apt-get purge wine without the * mark and this time, submit "n" to not uninstall at this time. Now, before you execute the command again, you should take note of the list of programs ...

Always consult WineHQ before installing Windows applications with Wine: a user reported a functioning Wine + Terraria combination here (WineHQ report page).

Will this command change completely the architecture from 64 to 32bit, or will it just add support to 32bit while keeping the 64bit? sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 Some packages which are related to particular software are available only in 32bit form. Software manufacturers may fail to create 64 bit packages for this kind of applications. To ...

I'm facing the same problem as you did. Since the .wine folder are actually linked with Documents folder, it's probably gone. However, you can try to recover some of the files by referring to this page http://www.webupd8.org/2009/03/recover-deleted-files-in-ubuntu-debian.html. Hope it can help.

There is a universal JAR file for minecraft avaliable for download, so you wouldnt have to use WINE. I think you would have to right click on it and open it with the JRE you have downloaded. Universal JAR file download link: http://www.minecraft.net/download EDIT: I do not know what may have caused that, maybe something went wrong with WINE

You will be able, but it most likely will not fun. Excel running on Windows with this Hardware should be also quiet slow (at least from what I can imagine). Just give it a try. Alternatives could be LibreOffice Calc in about 95% of all cases.

You have to download NoCD patch and apply it. The game should work. Also consider making a report about your experience.
