It appears that after installing winetricks, opening a file with ADE is an option in firefox. It has fixed itself ie thank you ajn. The question, which could remain open until someone else is desperate as i can work now,is what actually happened? Behind the scenes im guessing that file associations have aligned themselves by installing winetricks (??) I ...

Installation via winetricks worked very well for me. Install winetricks: sudo apt-get install winetricks then run winetricks and follow the instructions. Run ADE from the dash.

Just a suggestion but try setting the default program to open exes to wine windows program loader, and then click on it. If you're using the terminal, it might make orbiter lag, although I don't know why it would do that.

its very hard to decide which packages are required to your machine for installing wine. It is possible that some packages may be already installed on your system by some other applications. I followed these steps to install wine on different machine. note: 32bit architecture files won't work on 64bit and vise versa. all of you systems should be ...

True, "Linux is virus free" is a myth. And it's also an extremely inaccurate and vague sentence. You can read a lot on this topic, and there are a lot of articles explaining you what kind of "virus" (believe me, it's the wrong word to define such things, but let's use it for this discussion) are out there, how a "virus" may harm you, and how unlikely this ...

It's not necessarily normal to have that many viruses, but they are all usually "Windows viruses" meaning they run via WINE and where installed with some program using WINE. These types of viruses are usually not too dangerous as they have limitations as to what they can actually do and they are not installed on your system, just your wine prefix. What your ...

Well, that made my day! :D Let us see... Linux is not exactly virus free. If you let a certain malicious script run, it might install some little programs to steal your information. Though, the system is built in a way that it should warn you of a script wanting to run itself as root. Now.. you said the viruses were found on PlayOnLinux, which is a wine ...

The place to look for software working with WINE is WineHQ. It has this to say: Syspro is an extensive Accounting / Inventory package including P.O.S interface, xml, ODBC interfaces. Written in Cobol. Officially client program cannot run in Linux. BUT, it works with Wine! The SYSPRO product offering includes a choice of more than 40 application modules, ...

Well, I do believe that Adobe stuff (like photoshop) has a bad reputation of working with Wine. The same thing happens with iTunes. The latest compatible version of iTunes that works with Wine is version 8. 8! THE LATEST RELEASE IS LIKE, 12.1.1!!!!! I would suggest trying an earlier version of Master Collection, and if that doesn't work, try looking around ...

Tally is a commercial product so you should be able to get support from them directly here. Tally has a garbage rating on WineHQ. I would advice installing Windows in virtualBox and install Tally into that system. Tally working in WINE is dubious at best and you are likely to see all sorts of things that do not work besides this export of yours. On the ...

Ok so You could use a virtual machine to solve this, in which case, you would have the windows control panel, and the "mail" applet, where you could configure an address manually. I might be safe to assume that the same issue wouldn't be happening in the first place within a virtual machine, but if it were, again, you would have access to the control panel, ...

Running the configuration software in Wine doesn't help, because it expects the Windows hardware drivers to be present. You will need to find working Linux drivers for your device. Generally speaking, anything that involves direct hardware or driver access doesn't work in Wine.

I'm the person who wrote the first test results of Adobe Acrobat XI Pro on Wine App database. You can't install the program using current, official Wine release. If you want install it with - and only with - Wine, you will need a MSI "hack patch" which bypasses some custom MSI action calls required basically by any modern Adobe installer. The patch for ...

It is normal for a software application to require more than just one package, and when you install the main package, it causes a number of dependent packages to be installed as well. This is the case with wine: the main package called wine doesn't even contain any code at all, it simply just has a dependent package called wine1.6 which in turn depends on a ...

Having more memory (RAM) always helps because you typically need 3x as much ram as the largest image when it is uncompressed. Add in the requirements for WINE and Ubuntu and that is a lot of ram. Check if it is swapping to disk a lot, if so, you have little choice but to buy more ram or somehow allocate more to the process. It is possible to reduce the ...

Maybe you could try moving or deleting "/etc/apt/sources.list.d/getdeb.list.bck". It probably won't do any damage since it's a backup file.

Slender has a platinum rating on WineHQ App DB. So its installation shouldn't be difficult and involve any additional step. No need to install a particular old Wine version.

This is a 3-step process: Install gksu by apt-get install gksu Create a bash script that uses gksu - wine to change the user to wine and then executes the commands needed.

Running wine on Ubuntu 14.10. Found that wine explorer would run, but some "3rd party" programs would not, in my case it was femm42, a finite element analysis program for magnetics. In this case, the missing dll was mfc90.dll, but this doesn't really matter. Just try to locate your particular missing dll on the internet and download it. Next, examine any ...

This is based on @Flint's excellent script. At first I tried "Z:"%U variable at the end of desktop file Exec= field for Wine programs. It worked fine until I opened a program without a file specified. Wine programs complained about missing file because the Exec= line pointed to the drive Z: which clearly is not a file but absolute file path instead. File ...

Try this : sudo apt-get purge wine* This will remove every single package related to wine. This is probably because there are more than one package for wine in the repositories.

Open source drivers don't use the hardware to its fullest capacity, therefore your games are going to run slower. You should use the proprietary drivers for your GPU. They're maintained by AMD themselves; only they can write a driver that uses the GPU to its fullest potential. Additionally, Wine provides rather rough compatibility for Windows applications. ...

Ok,I think you should make sure to install it by using apt-get install wine rather than other ways. So I think you can remove wine by your comman, if you used apt-get install wine command to install it.

Are you trying to run a file located in your home directory or your desktop? If so, wine can't locate it because it's outside its own directory structure. Try this: Copy file.exe to the default wine installation: cp file.exe $HOME/.wine/drive_c/ Execute that file: wine $HOME/.wine/drive_c/file.exe

1st Option: Doesn't one of the listed packages complete the dependency? You can try installing one of the listed ones and then try again. 2nd option (only if the first one fails): If you'd like to install the exact package, try the following in a bash terminal: sudo -i cd /etc/apt/sources.list.d echo "deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ raring ...

As an alternative, if you have 8GB of RAM or more then you can just download windows 10 from MS for free and run it in virtualbox.

Ok I did a lot of gaming with(long back though) wine/playonlinux, on Ubuntu with my onboard HD 4250, the only issue I face was the characters in some games were not drawn, they were visible as black figures. No FPS drops or anything as such. The key is getting the right drivers with correct xorg dependences. Also AMD has been a little slow in maintaining ...

WINE acts as a software layer between game and the operating system, thereby reducing speed. The problem is bound to exist. Only very high end cards can work well. I suggest you try out steam games on linux, see if LOL and GW2 are available for linux. I run CS:CZ, CS:GO on ubuntu via steam and they run smoothly.
