I am the maintainer of two games on Wine HQ. So I can tell from experience. Gaming Under Wine is not that BAD. I maintain NFS Hot Pursuit and NFS Most Wanted on Wine HQ and most reviews are positive on Wine. Being an Game Maintainer I can understand what Wine can and cant do. Most games that are more than 4-5 years old have high chance of running well ...

First, clear your system with: apt-get update apt-get -f install Then remove Wine: apt-get remove wine wine1.6 Then install only one package, depending on your system: either amd64 or i386 sudo apt-get install wine1.7 let me see your output of doing so in case of error.

I've seen that many times with the Windows program continuing to run, but it's also a very generic, no-help failure message from PlayOnLinux, saying the Wine it started has crashed -- and nothing more. The most useful thing I've found to deal with this error is to experiment with different versions of Wine in the POL installation for your Windows program; ...

Despite some of the comments made here, wine is not up to playing modern games. Check this database: https://appdb.winehq.org/ for any titles you would like to play. I recommend dual boot, not without a lack of trying to the contrary. James

To create a wineprefix called wineprefix, the command I used was WINEPREFIX=/home/[name]/wineprefix winetricks dotnet40 corefonts I was given guidance about this at https://forum.winehq.org. Instructions are available under the FAQ section there: http://wiki.winehq.org/FAQ#32_bit_wineprefix

All you have to do is, Browse the PlayonLinux's Virtual Drives. Go to the WINEPREFIX/drive_c/ folder and look for Program Files folder. If you only see the Program Files and no ProgramFiles(x86) Then you are using 32 bit Wine Prefix. If you see both then you are using 64 Bit Wine Prefix. Hope this helps !!

You may not want to hear this but if you enjoy a lot of Windows-only software and need it to perform as well as it would on Windows then dual-booting - having an actual bare-metal Windows installation - is the best way to achieve this. Any kind of emulation layer, and Wine is an emulation layer despite what people say the name stands for these days, has the ...

Looks like you can edit ~/PlayOnLinux's virtual drives/prefixname/Users/username/AppData/Local/Blizzard/Hearthstone/options.txt. If you don't know what to edit i suppose you can just delete it and the game should generate a new one with default options once you launch it, back it up for an insurance though.

This likely can't be resolved in 1 simple answer but for starters your issue, or one of, comes from a ppa that seems to have been removed https://launchpad.net/~n-muench/+archive/ubuntu/programs-ppa It used to have trusty packages - ex. https://launchpad.net/~n-muench/+archive/ubuntu/programs-ppa/+build/6277936 That is causing this issue libgmp10 : ...

The only working methods for gaming with Linux is Steam or with native games (like Baldur's gate and Neverwinter Nights). Gaming with wine will be not as good as gaming it natively on Windows. Your hardware is never going to fully used when using wine. All those games you mention will have each their own quirks and their own installation method. The play on ...

Just as hint for optimal wine (in case you cannot accept or cannot afford the more mighty valve-package) : try to build two or three differant additional partitions as logical partition (with one extended partition) in your next new-installation (easier test this on an usb-harddisk first to practice around) then in different partition you could install ...

MacGo Windows Blu Ray Player works very well under Wine. I have used it on Ubuntu till now. I don't really know why nobody apart me is using it. Only issue: you have to register it but is has an acceptable price.

I know this tread is a little old, but I just ran into this problem myself and solved it. In the install folder that wine uses to run the game, there is a DOSBOX.CONF file (mine read dosboxDK.conf, where DK was the initials of the game). If you edit this as you would the normal dosbox.conf you will get the results you want.

The original poster, PDiracDelta, provided their solution in a comment: Actually, I've found the solution: apparently it takes several seconds to populate the list of available Wine versions, with no warning that POL is still populating the list. I seem to have closed it too early each time. But thanks anyway!

It shows that this is a bug in Wine. Read https://www.winehq.org/pipermail/wine-bugs/2010-September/250327.html http://osdir.com/ml/wine-bugs/2014-10/msg00689.html So instead you have just to use the Linux native ping

Its just because the plugin db provided with Pipelight 0.2.4.2 isn't up-to-date anymore. To update it manually: sudo pipelight-plugin --update sudo pipelight-plugin --create-mozilla-plugins (clear plugin cache (only necessary for using Firefox)) Afterwards it should work.

Unfortunately, in Wine, WinXP tends to be the current 'OS' to set up with on a default setup. So, we need to tell Wine to emulate a Windows 7 environment instead of a Windows XP environment. First, close the Photoshop installer completely. Next, run winecfg. In the "Applications" tab, where it says "Windows Version", select Windows 7 from the drop down. ...

Start winecfg go to Graphics and select Emulate virtual desktop. Make sure to select the right resolution.

I presume you have "emulate virtual desktop" option set with resolution lower than in-game resolution. Try to disable this setting or increase resolution of virtual desktop

You did not give many details, but you have to know that Windows programs that run under Wine (PlayOnLinux uses Wine) will not have the same performance like under Windows itself, and bugs occur mainly with games. If your entire system's sound is OK and only Skyrim has this bug, then probably it is a Wine performance bug.

To my experience, the best way to use Office in Ubuntu is by just installing VirtualBox and make a new Windows virtual machine and install Office on it. From there, you have several options to integrate the Office apps more tightly in Ubuntu. My favorite way is configure it using this solution: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cRoS2iJNGj8 Basically what you ...

Wine is a windows "emulator" (more or less), you must install programs directly, not just copy the files as it emulates the registry too, however wine is no replacement for windows. It can be very hit and miss depending on the version of wine, the version of the program you want to install and many many other factors. Don't remove your Windows just yet, ...

The short answer to your question is No. All the windows applications out there are not compatible with wine. The best place to see if a particular windows application is compatible with wine is browsing/searching in WineAppDB. In addition there are certain DLLs that Wine does not support (for eg: copy protection etc.). Read Wine HowTo to get a detailed view ...

I do not think this is possible, Microsoft Office is not supported by Wine because its source code is closed. But LibreOffice can replace it with no problems.

I agree with the first answer - Steam does work great with Linux, but some fonts and other graphical issues may crop up occasionally. By that I mean that the fonts on the "Updating" window appear more blocky and without anti-aliasing than the counterpart on Windows. Some games may not work correctly due to unimplemented functions in Wine - if you have a ...

I agree with @AUmarMukthar, but your problem is a different one: You have a space in the name of your EXE, so you have to enclose it in quotes. This is the reason for the following error message: wine: cannot find L"C:\\windows\\system32\\LED.exe"

IronAHK and AutoHotkey (Wine) works on Ubuntu, although they will only capture hotkeys and forms under .NET (IronAHK) or Wine Applications (AutohotKey). I've teste AutoKey and it is great, but unfortunately it doesn't handle mouse events very well. IronAHK is not being developed anymore, so you will have to build from source using monodevelop.

Maybe I'm moving far from the solution here, but if you did your own install with the script provided by nvidia, I would try to add ppa of xorg-edgers, update and install the driver prepared by them: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa It saved me lots of troubles when trying to install official nVidia drivers in the past and since then I had no ...

First time I tried this, Google Earth repeatedly crashed on trying to run it.

If your computer has never had an Android device connected, then I don't know where those files came from. On my computer (as I use both Android and its SDK) those files are an SSH key-pair that allow me to mark my computer as "trusted" to my phone. SSH keys shouldn't be harmful.

I updated Uubuntu on my laptop and the touchpad/mouse stopped working as well. After some searching, I found a temporary solution: With xinput you can see the input hardware. Then giving xinput --enable id you can enable the chosen device. I guess this is a bug of the last kernel, anyway.
