I had a similar problem when getting the NVIDIA-specific OpenCL library working when I installed the proprietary drivers from the GeForce site. The difference in my case, however, was that I used the manual installation of the drivers rather than the NVIDIA repository. After examining the package dependencies, the conflict is actually between ...

(Sorry for opening a new answer, but I don't have enough reputation to comment yet.) Following Νίκος's advice, I ran into two problems: dpkg required root permission to install the packages. At the last step, playonlinux still wouldn't install due to dependency problems. So it might be helpful to replace the last 3 lines with these 2: sudo apt-get ...

Virtualbox is available from the Ubuntu repository. You can install it from the Ubuntu Software Center or using the terminal by running sudo apt-get install virtualbox If you need the Oracle maintained VirtualBox run this in the Terminal: sudo sh -c "echo 'deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian '$(lsb_release -cs)' contrib non-free' > ...

cd to the folder to which you downloaded the virtualbox package. Actually you install the package with: sudo dpkg --install virtualbox-4.3_4.3.18-96516~Ubuntu~raring_amd64.deb

May I suggest you look here for you answer, and if you do not find the answer already provided, ask there for help. This site is specifically Ubuntu related and does not deal with Wine related questions.

For 3D Cads you have no choice, you have to install Windows.. I have the same problem. Unless you use less sophisticated cads for linux like Medusa amongst other. But Solidworks is the best, so just make a dual boot pc with Windows and Ubuntu. Use Windows for 3D Cad and Ubuntu for all other applications. You can always run Ubuntu from within Windows using a ...

It is possible to get the Timex Ironman Global Trainer to work using a Windows virtual machine under Ubuntu Linux. You do need a copy of Windows (XP in my case), or something like TinyXP (since it's just a step in the process I'll leave the ethical concerns to the user). I'll outline the process just to point anyone interested in the right direction. ...

You must install it fully under WINE in Ubuntu. That means grabbing your DVD or install files, and re-installing it from scratch while in Ubuntu. You cannot run it from your Windows partition. It requires access to registry values and other data in your local settings to even start, which are in the Windows registry. WINE has its own registry and "hard ...

Isn't it (mscoree.dll) part of MS .NET Framework? If I am correct (NullReferenceException), you should install it by means of winetricks

Aliases don't work in desktop files (or in scripts in general, unless enabled in the script). You should expand it out: env WINEPREFIX='/home/username/.wine32' wine "C:\\Program Files\\Adobe\\Adobe Photoshop CC 2014 (32 Bit)\\Photoshop.exe" (And perhaps add WINEARCH=win32 to the environment.) In the long run, it's simpler not to use shell-specific ...

I solved it by following these steps: My 64-bit wine configuration is located under the directory /home/username/.wine/ Add a 32-bit wine configuration: WINEPREFIX='/home/username/.wine32' WINEARCH='win32' wine 'wineboot' Add a alias in ~/.bashrc: alias wine32="WINEPREFIX='/home/username/.wine32'" Now you can use both 32-bit and 64-bit version of ...

If you want to use different versions of wine, I recommend PlayOnLinux. With this you can, not only install 32 bit and 64 bit wine, but also different versions of wine. Install it with sudo apt-get install playonlinux or use Ubuntu Software Center.

OpenGL libraries for DRM drivers are in the package libgl1-mesa-glx and you may also need libglu1-mesa, which depends on the former. Because Wine relies on 32-bit libraries, you need to install the package for i386 architecture: sudo apt-get install libglu1-mesa:i386 Alternatively you can install wine system-wide through the package manager instead of per ...

Did you take a look at the Wine App DB entry of League of Legends? There's a section with tips to increase performance. Otherwise there are very few things you can do: use a current proprietary graphics adapter driver, try a newer (or sometimes older) Wine version, try a different desktop compositor or none at all.

I don't think there is a way to modify Wine to restrict the framerate, and the problem you're having is clearly a bug in the program, not Wine. Unless the game has a setting to restrict the framerate, you're screwed, but I know one thing you could try. Use Microsoft's implementation of DirectX!

It is not necessarily possible to run windows games under Linux. PlayOnLinux uses Wine to execute the windows binarys. WineHQ has a database of various applications success rate for running under wine.

What it's asking for is the path to your virtual C: drive, which is called your 'wine prefix'. When they specifically say the path to the wine prefix, they want the full path to where your virtual C: drive is. To that end, the same FAQ you're looking at explains what your WinePrefix is, and what the default wineprefix location is: 1.9. Where is my C: ...

The "purge" option to apt-get should remove the package and associated configuration file(s)... sudo apt-get purge <package_name> The apt-get man page (http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/trusty/en/man8/apt-get.8.html) says, purge is identical to remove except that packages are removed and purged (any configuration files are deleted too).

The wine ppa tends to have the latest version and work on the latest Ubuntu versions.

I'm not sure what you really want to do (use your PPA'd wine in POL? build wine from source for POL?) but here's what I did to patch a beta wine (1.7 at the time of writing) for testing with POL. Notes: I'm using wine instead of wine1.7 because it maps to the newest wine so it will work when the beta is 1.8 I'm building on an amd64 architecture, which ...

Windows and Linux are built on very different backends, and run very different types of programs. While there are equivalencies like .so objects and .dll files, .exe files are not the same as a shell file. You could, under very controlled conditions with a highly customized OS named Windows with a Linux theme, run a .exe file. You will not be able to run ...

Simply run $ echo 1 > /proc/sys/abi/ldt16 and then start your application via wine. This temporarily enables 16bit support in the kernel.

You have a broken package. Run $ sudo aptitude -f install to fix that first, and then go on to install wine. Though, personally I prefer using playonlinux, in automatically handles the wine version etc. for you and keeps apps in different wineprefixes, gets less messy that way.

Sometime the Windows installers called by PlayOnLinux don't quit properly. To continue the installation, open your task manager (most likely gnome-system-monitor) and kill all remaining instances of the installer. Just search for anything related to your Windows program with .exe in the taskname. Kill all remaining installer processes. Afterwards, ...
