I would run it like this, assuming the POWER PREP II folder is in Program Files: wine start /d "C:\\Program Files\\POWER PREP II" launch.bat This would first set the current folder to C:\Program Files\POWER PREP II followed by executing the launch.bat file. There is an excellent example in How to install Wine

From your question, it seems that you are trying to install 32-bit Wine on 64-bit Ubuntu or 64-bit Wine on 32-bit Ubuntu. Apparently you are using the terminal. Please try the Ubuntu Software Center to check if it helps you install Wine. As for me, I installed Wine on Ubuntu 12.04 32-bit using Ubuntu Software Center and I faced no problems.

OK everybody calm down. You are asking to give a kid the nuclear launch codes of all countries to play with them. I recommend—let me rephrase that—I urgently, highly, extremely, recommend not giving root access to Wine but instead give permission to read and write to the www folder. I suggest a soft link in your home folder to the www folder. ln -s ...

It is normal. Wine1.7 is a 32bit application and I assume your installing it on 64bit version of Ubuntu. So Wine is requiring a lot of 32bit libraries that it depends on, hence the size of the install.

I found a working solution here "Install cups and related packages: sudo apt-get install cups system-config-printer-gnome To get a working lpr command, also install cups-bsd. You'll also want to install hplip if you're using an HP printer. Get the latest hplip package and make from http://hplipopensource.com/. There maybe other packages necessary for other ...

It seems that it works, but sometimes with some problems. See CS:GO in Wine, fullscreen freezes when Alt-Tabing and overlaps everything (including dobey's comment). Basically, you may have to run it in windowed mode. Also see the Wine AppDB page for CS:GO, and particularly this page (as that's close to the version of the game you're likely attempting to ...

Open terminal and cd to the wine Z:\ drive (in my case it is ~/.wine/drive_c/). Now use sudo rm filename. It will delete the file.

gsettings list-recursively needs a full schema name, it doens't work with partial schema names. So You can't use org.freedesktop. But you can do this with dconf: dconf dump /org/freedesktop/ Note the different notation here: dconf doesn't use schemas but directories.

Use the dump command of dconf (https://developer.gnome.org/dconf/unstable/dconf-tool.html): dconf dump /

I got the same error on my netbook. It seems to me that this error is related with https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=33407 I built wine with a patch attached to that bug. This helps me but I found out that my netbook (Atom N570, 1Gb RAM) is too slow :) Nevertheless you can try. Download a build script from ...

The key error message is this one: /usr/bin/ld: this linker was not configured to use sysroots That indicates a mismatch between gcc & ld. You probably need to install an updated version of binutils (being the package that normally contains /usr/bin/ld), to match the version of gcc you're using.

Are you running a 64 bit Ubuntu? Maybe you are missing the compatibility library. I cannot check your application, but in my system: [romano:~] % locate gnome-keyring-pkcs11.so /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/pkcs11/gnome-keyring-pkcs11.so So I have just the 64-bit version. Let's see which package correspond to it: apt-file search ...

The Trick is to Keep Alt Pressed when using the commands... Have been working on Ubuntu for 2 years..Except for selection on Filters using Space bar..no issues. PS : Macros do not work in Wine..

This is normal because when you run a Wine application it actually loads other apps to work together, each is it's own parent (not related) and each creates it's own childs. So to effectively kill all Wine related processes you need to use the wineserver command that comes with wine. Instead of sudo kill -9 wineAppProcessID you would run wineserver -k The ...

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 ...

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.


2

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
