According to some posts, an application is shown in the Unity launcher if there is a "desktop" settings file for this application in the /usr/share/applications/ directory. I remarked that a "desktop" file seems to be nothing else than a simple text file. If you right-clic on it, you can open a properties display window, but what you discover there is not ...

First of all, as You've been working with Windows, You have to understand that Ubuntu has totally different way of installing applications. Ok, maybe not so totally, but I will explain it later. Also applications are often different. Here we mostly use repositories about which You can read here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linux_repository . It's ...

Windows programs can not be run in Linux directly, both systems are too different. Linux has a ton of applications, FileZilla and 7zip for example are available as native Linux programs ready to install and use. If you want to use windows programs on Linux than you need to install a runtime environment like Wine. Installation instructions can be found here ...

Easiest way, set the Ubuntu Hard Drive as your first/primary drive. Then in terminal run sudo grub-update That should automatically recognize the other Windows partitions on the other drives and add them automatically. You can also change the primary boot partition in: /etc/default/grub

Did you browse it on Wine website? I think the best choice would be dual boot, and still use Windows to run this app, untill there's a Linux version or another software with the same tools.

there is CrossOver. it's a fork of wine, well tested and supported but not free https://www.codeweavers.com/products/crossover-linux/. otherwise you have VM solutions (virtualbox, vmware...) but not the same as wine

no there is no alternative to Wine except installing Windows. So either install Windows in a partition or run it under a virtual environment. The general answer will be no, as stated above. But there are Ubuntu compatible alternatives for many programs which means there might be a native program you can install instead.

As some commentators stated, not all apps can be installed using Wine. If you must have, basically, native Microsoft Office you will have to use their online equivalents. If you're a Chrome person, there are also web app versions of MS Office apps as well. Microsoft Office Online Chrome Web Store - Word Online

Wine -- even with help of PlayOnLinux -- really doesn't work well with 3D stuff. Also, you didn't really post that much info: it could be missing libraries, a bad graphics card (Wine really does not like integrated Intel cards, for example), an issue with sound, etc. You could try launching Steam Wine from the terminal, and see if it outputs anything. Like ...

Since I can't read Spanish (I guess) and since you tagged wine, then probably you didn't follow the correct procedures to install wine from PPA.

Wine by default runs programs as admin within itself, but wine can even be broken by trying to run it as root. Never run it as root. To tell if it is "rooted" just see what command you use to launch it. If it includes "sudo" or "gksudo" or even "kdesudo" you are running it as root. Wine is subject to viruses in the same way a non admin windows account can ...

This ultimately depends on your own computing habits. If you constantly download free screensavers and mouse pointers, you'll probably find a WINE-compatible virus in no time. However, if you stick to malware-free programs, you're pretty much safe. The best way to ensure that no malware is installed is by exclusively using Free Software or Open Source ...

Wine Is Not an Emulator. It is simply an implementation of the Windows system libraries for Ubuntu. There is no faster way to run a .exe on Ubuntu than Wine. If you want to have a shared codebase, you will want to compile it on Ubuntu. Depending on the language you are using and the system calls that are being made, this will either be very easy or a lot of ...

For starters you need a valid shebang. Your second file almost has one but the !# are the wrong way around. Second up you need a valid interpreter! None of my systems have a /usr/bin/bash, it's just /bin/bash. You could even just use /bin/sh. It's ever-so-slightly lighter. The following should work: #!/bin/sh wine /home/aiao/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files\ ...

the file handles 1 and 2 (stdout & stderr) may be closed by wine, because it doesn't use them and may even free up 0 (stdin) once it has established a keyboard handler. Also this would be more fair to windows as all file handles are available as it kind of expects in a new program-instance.

First of all: You're using Wine which in this case may need to recreate something that mimics the runtime environment of a Windows command shell (cmd.exe). As you have not told what drive_c/Program\ Files\ \(x86\)/LINE/Line.exe is, there is no way to tell its requirements. Now : ambiguous redirect1: 1 looks as a possible output from either Wine or cmd.exe. ...

In the first file you can redirect the output just using > /dev/null or &> /dev/null that will redirect stdout and stderr so no need for 2>&1. In the second file, I believe the correct interpreter is #!/bin/bash.

Wine has been updated but also you can use it with PlayOnLinux which abstracts better IMHO and has pre-configurations.

You don't need to use IDM on Linux OS for two reasons: 1. It's not free, and you'll need to pay for it or use a pirated one; 2. It doesn't comes for Linux, so you'll need to use wine for that purpose; so that's it. Now there's an another app for downloading, which is meant for ubuntu, and you can download it for free from it's official site in .deb; the link ...
