It's not Ubuntu question, but primarily Wine. See their site https://appdb.winehq.org/. There you can see list of Windows applications and their Wine tests (for different versions, distributions and etc). They have good rank and description (usually) for wine abilities for running different applications or workarounds to run something using Wine.

Just an update on my question I ended up ditching Windows server and going with a full Linux job - Ubuntu server and Edubuntu clients. Ultimately I feel this was the best decision but far from perfect. I have DHCP and DNS being provided by the server. A great feature of this setup is the ability to cache apt requests on the server so when an update occurs ...

The first step is to get the Wine desktop the size you want. Once you have that setup, you'll probably have to go change the video settings in Terraria. If the settings look correct, but Terraria is still using the smaller window, toggle the windowed/fullscreen setting once or twice and then re-select the resolution. The Terraria developers are supposed to ...

IT LIVES!!! After quite a bit of trial and error, I got it working! I had to go into my bumblebee.conf and set Driver=nvidia and then go and change the [driver-nvidia] settings from nvidia-current to nvidia-352, then manually set the BusID in /etc/bumblebee/xorg.conf.nvidia, but now it works! ...Hopefully it'll stay working...

The 1.7 packages are beta packages. This means they will periodically suffer ...

For me, wine was installed as multiple packages with different versions - for example wine1.4 or wine1.4-i386. To remove all of them, I simply typed sudo apt-get purge wine and then pressed TAB to display all installed packages with name starting with 'wine' and removed all of them. Of course, sudo apt-get autoremove was necessary at the end to clean ...

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pipelight/stable sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install --install-recommends pipelight-multi sudo pipelight-plugin --update pipelight-plugin --enable silverlight Silverlight will work in Firefox. It is actually installation using wine, but it will work in normal browser, not under wine.

At last, I just figured out the best solution was to install MinGW on Wine and run the g++.exe from Wine. It works like a charm really and never gives a single problem once the setup is finished.

Yes upgrade to 14.04 LTS first then install the official Chrome browser for Ubuntu from here: https://www.google.com/chrome/browser/desktop/index.html After that Netflix should work like a charm (Netflix access, without hacking, has been available to ubuntu users since late last year.) https://insights.ubuntu.com/2014/10/10/watch-netflix-in-ubuntu-today/

AppArmor should be able to do things like this. It's a access control layer that can add additional conditioons on user and processes. I've never used it before though so you might have some trial and error ahead of you. There's a fairly thorough guide on all of this on the AppArmor wiki. You'll need to layer more and more on but here's a starting point. ...

I've been through a process of installing, uninstalling and reinstalling various versions of Adobe Digital Editions (ADE).

I will show you how to delete wine and the virus it self, step by step: Step One: Run the following command(s) in your terminal: sudo apt-get purge wine Step Two: Just in case apt-get could not delete a Wine .exe file for whatever reason, delete the entire wine folder. It resides in your home folder like so: .wine/ sudo rm -r ~/.wine/ Step ...

Wine works by storing a 'wineprefix' on the filesystem, by default ~/.wine. This contains a virtual window drive for the program being run under Wine - but when you install a program under wine it also adds files to other locations so it works properly with the linux system (so just deleting the wineprefix is not always enough): ~/.local/share/appllictions ...

First off, I recommend updating to at least 14.04 LTS, as there's no reason to install an old LTS while there's a better one. Netflix on Linux is only supported in Chrome, not Chromium, not any other browser claiming to be Chrome either. You should download the Ubuntu version of Chrome directly from it's website: ...

I guess it was just a problem with that PlayOnLinux installer. I realized that I had other windows games on steam that I wanted to try on steam, so I just installed steam with PlayOnLinux, and all of my games from there. Now Skyrim's audio is great. It was like a whole new world after ages of fuzziness. :)

The wine configuration is located not in the system-wide, but in the user dir (/home/user/.wine or simply in ~/.wine). You can backup this folder and run again the wine, this will create a new folder with all your configuration, including the wine's C:. To simply delete this folder (including the drive_c) you can execute: rm -rf ~/.wine To backup: mv ...

I'm going to assume you installed wine via apt-get from the typical repositories or that you added a ppa for wine and installed it from there or generally just have wine installed such that any user can run it. If you have some other setup, add a comment and I'll update my post. So, here's what needs to be done: You need to put the files somewhere that ...

What Anthony said is true, you can use "" to say the whole path is a string, but maybe this is worth a consideration, as with this method yo ucan use to complete your paths: There are many special characters in a unix terminal, including spaces,*,newlines and other. You can ignore them by typing a "\" before them. So if a folder is named "My test", u can ...

Syntax errors means that the shell has trouble interpreting your commands. This is a result of the fact that the shell splits words based on spaces when it parses a command line. Without quotes, each individual part of the argument (such asC:\Program) is treated as a separate argument by itself. You can use quotes to prevent the word splitting: ni wine ...

The error itself is quite self-explanatory: System.DllNotFoundException: wininet.dll - you are missing wininet.dll, a Windows proprietary item. So we have to install it. You could try to do this: winetricks wininet - it'll try and install the DLL. However, this is reported to both work and not work depending on your Wine version.

To pass this error, you need to install X11 library development headers, for instance: sudo apt-get install libx11-dev:i386 However when configuring wine, it won't solve the problem completely, as you'll get another error about FreeType 32-bit development files not found which would be more challenging (unless configuring --without-freetype). So the ...

To configure wine on 64-bit machine, you should do: ./configure --enable-win64 If you really want to compile 32-bit wine on 64-bit machine, then I think the easiest way is to use the lxc container as Ubuntu makes building 32-bit wine hard because the 64-bit system doesn't come with a full set of 32-bit development libraries (See: Bug #990982). So the ...

The method you are using helps to ensure you have the latest WINE, which I will agree is supposed to be the best. However among my ubuntu geek friends, I'm the most successful with WINE and that's not how I installed it. I would advise you to use the version of WINE available from the Ubuntu Software Center. Please try using this link and clicking on ...

So I guess your problem is that you can't find the downloaded files from your non-Wine environment. By default wine creates a hidden folder in your /home called .wine. This is called your WINEPREFIX. Naturally (as with everything in linux) this location can be changed, but I'll assume that you left it at the default. So you have your WINEPREFIX in the ...

There might be the following issues present: You haven't installed the necessary drivers for your graphics card. You are trying to run a DX10 / DX11 application. Those aren't supported at the moment.

For Wine to work on a 64 bit machine, you need to enable support for i386 architecture.

If the output is multiarch then run below:- sudo sh -c "echo 'foreign-architecture i386' > ...

1. WINE WAY First of all, I would update wine to newer version...but that might not be necessary. You need Windows (at least in VM) running copy of Adobe Pro 8 on that copy of windows (That's because there is some bug, which prevents wine to copy files to desired directory and you need to do it manually) You need to copy a few registry entries from ...

I support runeks' answer. However, I kept having problems installing the SaveAsPDF.exe extension - it never showed up as being installed.
