If it claims that wine-staging-i is not apparent on your machine... it means it isn't. You can also use Systemback - A free ...

Once you have installed wine, you can download the Windows version of steam and install it. Then you run this version of steam through wine and download your windows games. I have had mixed success with this approach, but in many cases it's better than dual booting.

I would recommend PlayOnLinux as a front end for Wine. To install PlayOnLinux run the following commands from a terminal window: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install playonlinux Note, PlayOnLinux installs Wine if it is not installed. After it is installed and you run it for the first time, you will see an application that looks like this: Click ...

Thanks Hi-Angel. The issue here was indeed a package version conflict situation. It turns out that I backported that 3.8.4 sqlite3 package from (then) Debian Testing about 2y ago, and then completely forgot about it. Evidently. I didn't use a PPA, so got only the 64-bit packages. I solved the issue by grabbing an even more recent 3.8 version (3.8.11) from ...

Okay so the problem was that I used a custom 4.4 kernel that I needed because the touchpad on my laptop wasn't working. The issue is described in this kernel bugzilla thread.

Do not listen to the other complex answers. All of the files are available from the standard ubuntu repos. There are no ppa's to add. These are standard Ubuntu programs.

I think your first command is only purging the wine package, which is just a dependency for the others. sudo apt-get purge "^wine.*" should purge every package on your system starting with the word 'wine'. Note that apt-get uses regular expressions for pattern matching, hence the ^ and .*

Sidenotes * is acting as wildcard here apt and apt-get are similar commands - while they are not 1:1 the same. apt seems to be the future. --purge results in removing the user-related configs as well and not just the package ...

It is a firewall that blocks connections from the brick. The easiest way to fix the problem is to disable firewall by sudo service ufw stop, but it's a bad idea in general. Instead, you could setup rules to allow. I guess, Lego Mindstorm sends a broadcast request, and waits for incoming connections from anyone (from the brick in our case). That means, you ...
