Chromium dropped support for NPAPI plugins on Linux and therefore does not work with Pipelight any more, see http://pipelight.net/cms/chrome-chromium.html for more information. I would suggest using any other browser supporting NPAPI plugins like Firefox, Midori, uzbl, etc.

some windows stuff can be on linux using wine or dosbox, but in general there is no known bat interpreter for linux. There are, however, implementations of various unix shells for windows, there's even a standard toolkit, Windows Services for UNIX (a.k.a. SUA), which include ksh implementation and many other nice goodies, so if you want it OS-transparent, ...

I'm not familiar with Wine, but I am pretty sure you just install the game and run the .exe through Wine? If you don't have wine, and there isn't a Linux version of the game you can't run it on Ubuntu.

The Tomb Raider patch is supposed to work fine with Wine 1.5. Because I needed more recent unpatched versions of Wine for other applications, and hard drive space is not an issue here, I decided to install and run TR 2013 from a custom Wine installation using a virtual drive from playonlinux . Playonlinux provides a version of Wine (1.5.28-TombRaider) ...

I think you can not install MS Office on wine. Ubuntu has LibreOffice, it's almost the same, and it supports MS Office document formats.

That is perfectly workable and is in fact what I do for my Steam on Wine. The SteamApps folder is shared with the one for Steam on Windows. You can either create a symbolic link (which is how I first used it) or add it properly as a second library folder (which is how I use it now). I haven't had any problems with it. Games installed in Wine show up fine in ...

I had the same problem installing Office 2007. You can start the install manually by choosing "Install a program not listed" this enables you to choose a later wine version instead of going with the default. I was able to install it this way.

I had a similar problem, I fixed it by using export WINEARCH=win64 instead of export WINEARCH=win32 This is because the .wine directory present in your home directory is 64 bit and not 32. Thats why after echo %ProgramFiles% returns as it cannot find a .wine directory for 32 bit arch.

You may have a Steam shortcut on your desktop. If so, you can right click on that shortcut, select Properties, and modify the command to include primusrun. You should insert it just before the wine command, with a space to either side of primusrun

Well, a "Windows Virus" is not going to run without Wine, and if you see that wine is running while you are not really using it, you should see what program is actually using it. But it's very unlikely that you will get a virus that way, I can't say it's imposible, but now you know how to detect one if it exists. So I would not be worried about wine and ...

If the application in question is pure .Net and compatable with Mono, simply run "sudo apt-get mono-complete" then run it from mono. If not, you can use winetricks to install Mono or .Net in order to run it. For .Net you need to be running a 32bit Wine bottle, but for wine-mono or mono you can run it on 64bit or 32bit

It looks like your wine install failed. Try purging it and starting over: sudo apt-get remove --purge --auto-remove wine Replace wine with the package name you used to install it originally. If it doesn't like this try removing the --auto-remove parameter. More information here. You might want to try getting a newer wine version this time as explained ...

In Ubuntu 13.10 on the WineHQ WoW 5.4 was rated as "Gold" and for other distributions it was rated as "Platinum" both mean that you will have almost no problems or any that make normal game play impossible.

As far I understand, you can run Word as user Administrator, but when trying to run it from another different account (user300246 for instance) you get errors.

Interestingly enough, I am finding that running Utopic Unicorn with a cracked version of Wine which has been optimized for Ubuntu is working well and every now and then (if I leave pen pressure setting on) I find it registers the pen pressure and draws a thin line.

The easiest way to do this will be to open nautilus, (the program where you view your files), go to your home directory, and press Ctrl + H. This will show hidden files, and you can double-click on .wine to open it. Under .wine, there should be a folder called something similar to drive_c. If you click on that you will see program files, and program files ...

Wine has a 'C drive' of sorts in the directory ~/.wine (a hidden file in your home directory), where it installs the Windows programs, and keeps its current configuration. So, you could reset wine by running this (it will remove all of wine's current configuration): rm -r ~/.wine Instead, you may just want to back it up so you can restore later if needed, ...
