Got Klok working on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. I used the free WineHQ software which enables many Windows applications to run on Ubuntu.

I think that the above answers answer the question well, but I would also like to add that running a virus in wine WON'T stop any viruses that access/modify/delete files on the system. For instance, the dreaded CryptoLocker ransomware will encrypt all your documents, then will demand payment to decrypt them. The virus could still easily access the Z:\ drive ...

First of all... This section helped me configure Wine to get the right appearance for Photoshop CS6. Sometimes winetricks allfonts doesn't work very well. Occasionally you may receive errors on the SHA1 sum for some fonts if they are updated and not yet reflected in the winetricks script. The current winetricks version in the repos for the Droid Font ...

Do Wine Viruses only work while Wine is running? Yes, if it is a trojan, rootkit, worm program specifically designed to infect Windows machine. Viruses through wine has already happened. could I stop a virus from doing it's thing by just quitting Wine? Yes and no. Yes: If It's a Windows virus, kill the Windows Environment(wine), and it won't ...

Maybe. There's no short answer for this. I'll start by saying your introduction makes it sound like you think Linux can't get viruses (and/or malware). That may just be my inference but it's important to note that malware is just software and you can run bad software on Ubuntu just as easily as on Windows as long as it's compatible. Linux isn't ...

You must use a Virtual Machine. You can use Virtualbox or maybe 'VMware and Workstation' But, on virtualbox be sure that you have an installation CD or a .ISO file to install onto it. Be careful coz sometimes it halts..

I managed to setup a VPN connection from a 14.04 box to a Cisco-rebranded Linksys Small Business VPN router whose default client software is QuickVPN. The software used was the Shrew Soft VPN Client. It is available on the default Ubuntu repositories. (It's open source) This guide worked like a charm: https://www.shrew.net/support/Howto_Linksys

Try quoting the path - e.g: "C:\Games\World_of_Tanks\WotLauncher.exe" you can also try wrapping the command in: bash -c "COMMAND GOES 'ERE"

I just installed upstream Wine and upstream nVidia in 14.04 from these two PPAs and they didn't appear to conflict, which is a good sign: https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-wine/+archive/ubuntu/ppa https://launchpad.net/~mamarley/+archive/ubuntu/nvidia

Not an answer to this question, but I gave up on installing Acrobat and instead installed Foxit Reader. I had to open the .exe with wine, but let me tell you Foxit is incredible! Free for personal use More features than acrobat Far better looking than linux-native free pdf readers

I thank everybody who helped me to solve this problem. Due to some other problems, I reinstalled Ubuntu and now it works. I don't have the answer for those that have the same problem, unfortunately. Thanks to everybody!

I only get 40-55 FPS on very high settings So turn the settings down. You're doing this through Wine. League of Legends is uses Direct3D. Microsoft has not made DirectX available natively for Linux so Wine has to translate all those Direct3D calls into OpenGL... And that takes time. One thing that might be an idea is switching to a CSMT-patched build ...

If you install Teamviewer 10 from the .deb file, --daemon stop as recommended above won't work in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (and others?). Don't know why. The daemon is an 'upstart job', so it gets controlled from /etc/init/teamviewerd.conf not /etc/init.d. Unfortunately, for me, both initctl stop teamviewerd and service teamviewerd stop result in: initctl: ...

I have the same problem awhile ago. This is how I fix it. Create avp_wine file in your /usr/bin directory And this will be your content in your /usr/bin/avp_wine #!/bin/bash cd /home/USER/.wine/drive_c/AVP/ wine avp.exe And in your /usr/applications/avp.desktop change the Exec value to avp_wine

Seeing how all recent releases of TurboLister 2 are listed with a 'garbage' rating on WineHQ it's highly unlikely that you will be able to get it to work on your machine.

Building on Diego's answer, I have integrated this into a wine wrapper which can be used for classic Wine installations. I've only targeted the specific instance where wine is run as "wine start" where the path is the 4th argument, but this could be expanded to iterate through all arguments testing for pathnames. Also for me, the folder in /run/user was my ...

Wine is not an emulator. And RemoteKeys is pretty old software that works by manipulating the Windows API and inserting itself in-between the application layer and the API using undocumented Windows calls. As Wine just emulates the documented Windows API, this kind of software doesn't work and will not ever work (even when you would file a bug report). ...

Per se the wine program loader by itself installs well on all the Ubuntus since 8.04 (my first Ubuntu). For specific programs written to run on Microsoft Windows operating system, there may be work-arounds required to get them properly running on a Linux system under WinE. winehq website (https://appdb.winehq.org/) maintains a database of what works, and if ...

All you need to do is to install the correct version of wine1.6 for your Ubuntu 14.10 64-bit operating system. Open the terminal and type: sudo apt-get install wine1.6 If you also want to install winetricks run the following command: sudo apt-get install winetricks

Seems stable enough for me for the (very) few legacy Windows applications I need to use it for although others say that there can be issues with some of the weightier programs which may be best run in VMware. Where there are Linux alternatives for the applications you wish to use, it may be best to follow that route, if you are able.

It is possible to add the PPA and install via the terminal. just type - sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa Then update APT package information by running sudo apt-get update. You can now install Wine by typing sudo apt-get install wine1.7 If you'd like to browse the PPA manually, you can visit its Launchpad page.

Every Application that can be used in Wine usually has an entry in the WineHQ AppDB. In your case, the main AppPage is WineHQ - League of Legends. You always want to see if there are any Installation instructions available. As you can see there are instructions for this entry.

You can use Uninstaller. Uninstaller is a GUI uninstaller for all setup programs that put an uninstall entry in the registry, e.g. InstallShield or the WISE installer. It's similar in function to "Add/Remove Programs" in Windows, except much simpler. An actual Add/Remove Programs control panel applet (appwiz.cpl) was added to Wine 1.1.2, and ...

An improvement on zetah's answer. This works for passing multiple files to the program. The %f is changed to %F (upper case) to pass all the files dropped, replacing the ^ (for the beginning of the line) with enough of the path name to make it more likely unique, the 'g' at the end of the sed command to cause the replacement to repeat for all files passed ...

Probably not. According to Tango's AppDB entry it was considered garbage back in 2012 with Wine 1.5.8 and there's no newer report. Current Wine versions may work better though.

I also had this problem. For me the solution was to install the propietory drivers from Radeon AMD. Once installed and chosen in the software, and a quick restart, I have a normal start-up window.

It is most likely the fact that it is run in wine. It should not make such a big drop in FPS but when you run something in wine it runs slower because it is not native, neither is it emulated. If you can go into the game settings and see what the game thinks your graphics card is.

What's wine got to do with it? Let's ignore that for a moment. Microsoft are open sourcing the core parts of .NET as well as making ASP.NET more open source than it already was. On their own, these two parts would allow you to make command line applications and ASP.NET websites. If you have existing applications like this, it should eventually be possible ...

I can't tell why it doesn't work for you without more information about your setup, but this is how I set it up and it works just fine (as far as I can tell, not knowing assembly).
