You need to install wine-mono package, and run it with wine. sudo apt-get install wine-mono wine ./Setup.exe Unless you're developing C# app with GNU/Linux, you'd better to stay away of the mono app. There's too many cases where plain mono wouldn't work, while the wine does. Often this is caused by .net app usage of some native Windows libraries instead ...

The main reason this could be happening is because the ISO is not loaded. Other reasons why this may be happening is because the ISO may be corrupted, damaged, or not finished downloading. This is one of the problems with Google Chrome, it will say finished but not really finished and you get a partial ISO. Try downloading with Windows, or with Safari. ...

I had the same problem and all I had to do was to try with different isos from windows because the older versions are known to fail. Finally i download the last version from Microsoft website and the machine worked fine.

You can solve it be setting WINEPREFIX variable to a particular directory via /etc/environment (i.e. to set the variable system wide). E.g. to have myuser's installation system wide, add there a line like this WINEPREFIX="/home/myuser/.wine" Note however, that this way every Wine application would be installed «system wide», unless when you launch an app ...

Aside from @mchid's correct answer, the command you should've used was sudo apt-get remove wine\* Notice the backslash. It instructs the shell not to open the wildcard, and pass it to apt-get as is instead. What happened is that your shell interpreted the wine* and passed a whole lot of package names for apt-get to remove, instead of just the ones you ...

As says the two previous answers, "Source code" is different from "executable code". I have installed Wine 1.8 because I'm fed with my old Wine 1.6.2. I run Ubuntu 14.04. I have typed "sudo apt-get install wine1.8"

If you go to the index for that repo and look at the distributions, I think you are going to find that oneiric is no longer supported due to its age.

As for legacy drivers, you might want to get a new ...

May be too late to answer but I observed this on my setup Ubuntu 14.04 machine (6 cores) accesses from a Windows 10 machine using TeamViewer 11. The CPU usage would shoot up to 400% at times. I disabled the animation effects on Ubuntu (using compiz settings manager) and the CPU load returned to "normal" (~50%). I hope that this helps.

You downloaded the source code. Installing software from source is and advanced task which involves compiling, getting dependencies, libraries... You won't want it since you can install Wine precompiled, from the Software Center. If you didn't get to the make install part of the source's instructions, no, you didn't install Wine yet. Just remove what you've ...

What you downloaded is the source code of WineHQ, i.e. the code from which you would have to build the program itself. As you didn't install it, but merely downloaded it, you can simply remove it if you think you don't need to compile it yourself. (And it's not the easiest thing to start with as a beginner in Linux...) However, there is no need to remove ...

A bit of research about the «wine dll fail» in general, together with live testing on my system shows that most probably your WINEPREFIX get screwed somehow. To check it you can simply backup it with mv ~/.wine/ ~/.wineBCKP, and rerun installation — now it should succeed, and the app should work. It worked for me, though I'm running wine-1.9.1 staging, but I ...

Based on the information you supply there is no "best". "wine" is the same on any Ubuntu version so not usable for comparison. "booting from usb" is a generic BIOS option, depends on a correctly burned installer but that is about it. "wine" is a hassle on a normal installation. It will perform even worse on a live session. I would avoid it at any cost ...

TL;DR Run glxinfo | grep GLSL — the least version you want to see is the 3.30. Otherwise your driver just doesn't support the GLSL version which wine is using for DX10 implementation. I was also getting the same error, so I decided to investigate it. First we have to find out the code. Grepping over the Wine source shows that the error resides in ...

First, try installing the 64 bit version to see if that will resolve the problem. Run the following command: sudo apt-get install libstdc++5 Please post any more errors. EDIT: Okay, then install the i386 version like so: sudo apt-get install libstdc++5:i386 Please post any more errors.

You have to install the i386 version of Wine, you can do so using these commands: sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 After that run: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install wine-bin And lastly run: winecfg To test the Wine i386 version.

It will be better if you install the latest version of wine using these commands sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install -y wine1.7 I don't think there should be any error if you try to open wine now.Check it out though.

You can remove your .wine configuration folder. Warning: if you installed any important programs in Wine's "C:" drive make a backup first. Open a terminal and run: mv .wine .wine.bak winecfg Now Wine configuration should create a new wineprefix and open.

See the post: Install Google Sketchup on Ubuntu 14.04 From this I understood that you need to: type on the terminal: winecfg In Wine Configuration window: 1.Change Windows Version to Windows 7 in the bottom of the Applications tab. 2.Under Libraries tab, select ‘Riched20’ library from the drop-down list and add it This should work for 2016 too.

Try this: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get dist-upgrade sudo apt-get autoremove sudo apt-get purge wine* sudo apt-get autoremove That should refresh the cache and make sure you have absolutely all updated packages, then remove the unnecessary packages, before removing wine and some more 'unnecessary' packages.

i would suggest using apt-get autoremove and after it is done use synaptic or something to fix broken dependencies.

Since you mention that unstable wine is okay for you, you can use PPA of wine-staging. I am using it right now, and I have the 1.9 version. Note however, that the purpose of wine-staging is testing experimental features, which aren't yet merged with the main branch. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:wine/wine-builds sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install ...

@carnendil, thanks for linking that other question. When I installed the 3.6 version of the package, everything worked fine. The download script looks a lot different compared to the 3.4 package, and it didn't have any issues with invalid content headers or hash sum mismatches.
