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.

According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Q&A_(Symantec), Q&A by Symantec has been superseded by Sesame Database Manager (Lantica Software, LLC).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.

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.

For the first part. It kind of sounds like you messed with your repositories, maybe with a typo or forgot something in your commands. Try to restore to default repositories. Read these links: How do I restore the default repositories? How to restore the default repositories in 12.04? The apt-get update \ apt-get upgrade commands are just going to look ...

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 ...

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.

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.

This is doesn't address the full scope but could be helpful to have in mind. Anti-virus software are useful to analyze files. For instance, under GNU/Linux you can use it previous execution of the executable file. For this task there are several websites that analyze local and online files and one of the most popular desktop software is ClamAV.

So, I know this is an old question, but there seems to be a way to do this. Sort of. EDIT: So, having downloaded 1 game, it doesn't seem to be working. Launching the game does nothing. No errors.. just nada. So, YMMV. It involves, tricking the client into thinking it can be installed by creating an appmanifest in the right folder. Luckily, since Steam is ...

I have no idea of how does those specific applications work but you may work with them using a "windows emulator" called Wine. I would recommend to first, call support and ask for native Linux software. If you get an affirmative response, go ahead and install Ubuntu.

This does have to do with the anti-aliasing in Windows. It expects you to have it on in the OS, so they don't bother re-creating anti-aliasing in the Office Suite. If you disabled the anti-aliasing in Windows, it would look the same. If wine's own font smoothing does not work, then I don't think it will. Here's a test to make sure its just the display ...

When you update your system, there may be some updates for the wine package. Since the wine programs and directories are set in your home folder, when you first start wine after an update, it updates (copies the new wine files from the installed one to your directory) so it's completely normal. If you look under the wine folder on your $HOME doing this: ...
