According to this test on Wine HQ, 14.04 does not display anything except on a black background. You need Ubuntu 14.10 for it to work. To get 14.10, run sudo apt-get dist-upgrade.

Well after roughly two days trying to figure this out; I took another look at the logs and it seemed to show the libgbm1 issue around the Unity-Control-Center Something apparently got corrupted during an install of an app or program. I reinstalled it via Synaptic and it removed and re-installed quite a few items. So far things are back to normal, emphasis ...

There are only 2 ways. 1.) Virtual Machine - Virtual Box (the free and worst thing you could use for gaming) or VMware (not free but runs circles around Virtual box in benchmarks). 2.) WINE/PlayonLinux - this is what most ppl use and it works for most everything. if you have problems with certain programs in WINE try going to the appdp.winehq.org and ...

According to Wine HQ, neither the 64-bit or 32-bit of Office 2010 or Office 2013 can be run on Ubuntu. The 32-bit of 2010 will install, but will be unable to activate. The 64-bit version of 2010 won't even be able to install. Both editions of 2013 will have the same problem as 2010 64-bit. You either need to look for alternatives, such as Office 365 or make ...

Or You could use a dual boot, that way you would have two systems but completely independent and with full performances on booth.

You could do a virtual machine, but aside from that it's impossible without Wine.

I had the same problem-- no Google folder when running the regedit.exe found in wine "drive:c". Then I found another regedit in a winetricks submenu, and there it was. I applied winehq's OpenGL fix described by Christian above. This was a Sketchup 8 installation in Mint 17. Works fine now.

Have you tried installing the libgcc1 package that is requested? sudo apt-get install libgcc1:i386=1:4.9.2-0ubuntu1~12.04 or pin it: sudo sh -c "echo -e 'Package: libgcc1:i386\nPin: version 1:4.9.2*\nPin-Priority: 500' > /etc/apt/preferences.d/multiarch-libgcc1"

Is there a piece of software that will let me run .exe files as soon as I install the program Natively? That is called WINE or the add-on to it called PlayOnLinux. without having to go through a complicated process like Wine or PlayOnLinux makes me do? No, that is what WINE was created for. PlayOnLinux is difficult and peculiar but I can not say ...

How I did it(I guessed and naturally my guesses work) is i saved just the file not extracted to my drive. Okay. Then I plugged it into my other computer found where the file was.Right click, open as terminal. Then type in sudo apt-get install wine. Let me know if this works for you as well, its a shortened version of the top one.

I recommend that your regulatory domain be set explicitly. Check yours: sudo iw reg get If you get 00, that is a one-size-maybe-fits-all setting. Find yours here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_3166-1_alpha-2 Then set it temporarily: sudo iw reg set IS Of course, substitute your country code if not Iceland. Set it permanently: gksudo gedit ...

You need to be sure of the Wine settings you are changing: on PlayOnLinux you can have several versions of Wine running, and each version can have different settings.

Steam for Windows under Wine works wonderfully. It lets me play Unturned and Terraria (the two main games I cannot play on linux) without issues (so far). Moreover, if the game you are looking at is a source engine game, such as Team Fortress 2 (which is, by the way, also available on Steam for Linux natively,) then you may run into some text rendering ...

That's an Apple package. If you're dual booting OSX and Ubuntu, install it under OSX. If not, you've downloaded the wrong package. Download the one for LINUX, not Mac OSX.

No, Windows malware can't "spread" to the host Linux system. No, Windows malware doesn't "spread" across Wine prefixes. For both questions, a theoretical possibility is not to be ruled out, but it would mean that the malware writers would deliberately attempt to target Wine systems, which is extremely unlikely - unless you are a security researcher you ...

You cannot install fontconfig-config:i386 (= 2.8.0-3ubuntu9.1) because 12.04 has a dependency. There was a metapackage which depend on fontconfig-config 2.10.x, so you should remove it. How to find it? For example use aptitude: remove fontconfig-config 2.10.x install fontconfig-config:i386 (= 2.8.0-3ubuntu9.1) search broken meta-packages, which needs ...

IMHO your easiest path ahead would be to install XP in a virtual machine on your Ubuntu computer. I have had no problems with USB devices passing through to XP virtual machines using VirtualBox.

You must install msxml6 dll and set the enviroment to 32 bits. However, if you must install office 2010 from zero: Install: https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/applications/playonlinux/ and: https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/applications/wine1.4/ Then, using playonlinux, you must install office 2010.

An alternative would be xscreensaver. Install it by: sudo apt-get remove gnome-screensaver sudo apt-get install xscreensaver xscreensaver-data* xscreensaver-gl* You can configure it with xscreensaver-demo. This opens a GUI window which allows you to chose one of a huge number of different screensavers: For your love to flames, I would recommend you ...

Just mount both images at the same time, there's no real need to unmount the first one. On a side note: the problem is probably the fact that wine itself is preventing the image to be unmounted, overriding the specific executable's default behavior which wouldn't.

Since the "gold" result linked indicates only that the demo was tested and runnable under a very old version of both wine and Ubuntu, what I would do is install virtualbox under Ubuntu, install a supported version of Windows on a virtual machine and then install vds 6.0 on the VM. this approach will virtually guarantee compatibility (I've been forced to do ...

I hope you're using separate Wine prefixes for each application managed by Wine/POL, because that would make the following much easier. PlayOnLinux stores its Wine prefixes underneath ~/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefixes/. As with all files and directories, you can move any or all prefixes anywhere else and then place a symbolic link to the new location at their old ...

Open "Configure Wine" from the dash and try different versions of Windows. It often helps.

My advice to you would be to make absolutely certain your installation is fully updated. As I am not a mint user, I'm not sure how to advise you, but if it is anything like Ubuntu, it should be as easy as pressing the windows key on your keyboard, typing UPDATE, pressing enter, and then pressing on the CHECK button, prior to pressing on the UPDATE button. ...

Try this solution, worked for me: Restart your computer, as it boots up hold the Shift key so as to get grub boot options. Select Advanced Options from the grub menu and boot into the system. Enter your login details and run the commands below Commands: sudo systemctl enable sddm.service -f sudo reboot After this your computer should be able to boot ...

First of all this is a UBUNTU-Site and not a Microsoft-Site. So why would you ask to have it installed on Windows-System. The person you were looking for has installed it on Ubuntu in combo with wine, thats a little bit different. I still have a recommendation though, try it with DOSBOX. http://www.dosbox.com/download.php?main=1

Virtualbox can be installed by simple sudo apt-get install virtualbox But before running this command you should sync canonical by software updater on Other option.

Please refer to my web-blog to solve this issue: http://xuancong84.blogspot.sg/2015/03/installing-conflicting-packages-on.html I have just successfully installed both CUDA and Wine on my Ubuntu 14.04. And both of them are working. Basically, you need to use aptitude to exam each conflict carefully and modify the right entries in /var/lib/dpkg/status so ...

An alternative way is to cheat the Ubuntu package manager that CUDA is not installed while if fact it is installed. The steps are as follows: a. get the package list: dpkg --get-selections > anyfile b. edit anyfile to set nvidia-opencl-icd-340 as deinstalled, save the file c. set the package list: dpkg --set-selections < anyfile edit the ...

This will only work if Windows still is installed. If you deleted Windows when installing Ubuntu, you will have to reinstall Windows. Boot Ubuntu, open a terminal. $ df -h In the column "mounted on" there is one entry with only a slash (/). Look at what's in the "filesystem" column of that row. It's something like /dev/sda6 or /dev/sda1. Then enter ...

You should be able to use the Tab key to navigate the window. The Ok button is the one that comes after the dpi field. Once you think you have selected the Ok button, you should be able to use Space or Enter to confirm your selection.

While this is still an issue for me, I've found a workaround. By adding primusrun to the shortcut, it reliably launches in fully functional form the first time after rebooting my machine. Any subsequent launches are likely to blackscreen, but the first one almost always works. Another workaround is to install SKSE (Skyrim Script Extender), create a ...

I had the same problem and could solve it by installing 'winetricks'. Once installed you have several options to configure or "tweak" wine. What solved my problem was this simple command: winetricks corefonts It installs the Microsoft fonts into Wine so that the PDF-X Change Viewer has access to them. I hope this helps. Best, Stefan
