When you install Adobe Reader with Wine (and maybe other programs) to have this program available in the right-click menu, you have to use a .dekstop file in the .local/applications directory such as : [Desktop Entry] Name=Adobe Reader XI Exec=env WINEPREFIX="/home/nico/.wine" wine C:\\\\windows\\\\command\\\\start.exe /Unix ...

Wine is compatible to install .msi files as well either in Ubuntu or Mac. You need to configure your wine setup initially which I presume you have already done. Just type wine start fileName.msi. This will automatically install your desired file. Here is the supporting link to the Wine FAQ.

I found this thread because I was having the same issue. This may not work for everyone, but it did for me. (I made a folder in home called /virtualdrive/Drive0) Also, I had the problem with a different game, but I think it applies. Mount iso # 1 sudo mount -o loop AOMG_D1.iso ~/virtualdrive/Drive0 Run game installer, hit install. It loads to 32% or ...

It's not installable, because it depends on i386 architecture which isn't there in your system. To add it, try: sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 update your apt repositories: sudo apt-get update and install wine again: sudo apt-get install wine Alternatively you can --force-architecture by using dpkg.


0

Just add additional architecture: sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 update your apt sources and it should work. See also: Can't install wine (or ia32-libs) in Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit


0

It seems your current architecture is amd64 (dpkg --print-architecture), so you've to add i386 to the list of architectures for which packages can be installed without using --force-architecture. So the full solution how to install wine, it would be sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:ubuntu-wine sudo apt-get update sudo ...

This has been fixed today with the latest kernel update 3.13.0-61

Solved. Today updated the kernel (3.13.0-61), and all was fine.

There are some new patches available today. Try running Software Updater again. After I installed the latest kernel and patches, wine started working again for me. Perhaps it will help with your other issues too.

This answer isn't about rolling-back the kernel. But, FYI, the original problem that caused wine to malfunction seems to have been in the 3.13.0-59-generic kernel; and the new 3.13.0-61-generic version is now available. I manually started Software Updater and it upgraded to 3.13.0-61-generic automatically; now my wine applications launch OK again.

When you first boot up your machine you should see the grub boot menu. At the grub boot menu choose the older Kernel you want to boot to - Once you have chosen the Kernel you want to keep and you have booted into it uname -r will tell you what kernel you are currently running on (measure twice cut once) dpkg -l | grep linux-image dpkg -l | grep ...

Here is another method. That might work. Go into terminal and type in this command winecfg This should open a menu that will have some features on it. Go to sound and hit test sound to see if it is working. You can maybe mess around a little bit here to select your default system input and output sounds. I have mine all set to system default. Although I ...

Maybe it is because your audio cord is not plugged in fully. Also make sure your audio drivers are up to date and are the right audio drivers for your speakers. Maybe your audio cord is broken. Or just try reinstalling wine.

Running a wineserver instance manually seems to help. Run wineserver -p before trying to run a program with wine. UPDATE: changing the working directory doesn't help reproducibly but running wineserver manually does.

I booted the previous kernel (3.13.0-58-generic) and it works again. 3.13.0-59 fails for me.

It is not "basic" at all. This device is not supported by Linux kernel and it will not work with Linux-based distributions until someone makes a driver for it. You can not use Windows hardware drivers through wine. The only way to use it, I guess, is by a Windows guest system in VirtualBox or VMware.

You apparently assume that Wine is some sort of Windows environment within Ubuntu. Well, it isn't. The errormessage you present clearly shows that Wine was running in thus particular case. The problem here is that Wine can't find the executable to run. To solve this you need to start the terminal and then you can go to the directory where your executable is ...

Wine does not work well with games, seeing as they are complexly written. Instead you should use PlayOnLinux, a better alternative that's also free.


0

Wine is NOT for running games. Instead, use PlayOnLinux, a much better free alternative, which also sandboxes executables. Do not forget to look in your task manager for any *.exe processes.


0

You can use wine via terminal wine your_exe with the full path to your exe. Or also via context menu of your exe file in your file manager. Installed Windows programs you can start usually via your Dash.

Problem solved ! I resintall wine only (without PlayOnLinux) and I installed ie8 with winetricks. I downloaded flashplayer9 and copied it in the wine ie8 folder, executed the flashplayer.exe for windows and launch iexplorer.exe from the .wine/...../IE folder.

This can happen if you try to run updates while the system is already doing it. My Lubuntu install checks for updates each morning around 8 am - I didn't explicitly ask for it to do this, so I assume it is a default - and I've seen this message if I try to do similar things while it's running.

No , Office 2013/365 won't work with lastest wine although the Office installer is begining to work with lastest wine git code. The best option for you is to use Win7/virtualbox in seamless mode.

I've had some success launching apps through wine from the Linux Steam client. As Michael suggests, you need to use a shell script to launch them. For example, I use this to launch path of exile, named poe.exe: #!/bin/bash unset LD_PRELOAD export WINEPREFIX=/media/stephen/d_extra/PoE/ export WINEDEBUG=-all cd $WINEPREFIX cd drive_c cd "Path of Exile" wine ...

You could try the Add a Non-Steam Game option and direct it to a shell script that launches the game but this wouldn't solve much as it would also launch the Windows Steam client as well because the client is needed to authenticate the game as part of the DRM process. If the Linux client could authenticate DRM for Windows games than all would be fine but it ...

The problem you are probably having is that Ubuntu is trying to open the exe with the Archive Manager instead of with Wine. To fix this, just find the file in the file manager, right click on it, go to "Properties", click on the "Open with" tab, click on "Wine Windows Program Loader" and click on "Set as default". The exe files should now open with Wine when ...
