I got a Lytro from woot this week, but didn't research the Linux support. I have PlayOnLinux installed and was hoping to run the windows software from there. The snag I ran into was that they have an OS check. How do I get around this?

Unfortunately your computer does not meet the minimum requirements. Only 64-bit Windows 7 Windows 8 is supported.

    Idk about playonlinux, but on Wine you can set a new wineprefix with 64bits support. – MrVaykadji May 23 '14 at 5:23
  • I made a prefix. and got past that message... not what do I do about lack of dotnet 4.5 support? Or dotnet support on 64 bit computers? – Tiris May 23 '14 at 6:00
  • No idea, isn't Mono (pretty much open-source dotnet) enough ? – MrVaykadji May 23 '14 at 6:10
  • mono supports apps outside of wine AFAIK. Giving up for tonight here is my error log for running the installed app. pastebin.com/Zq0YteWX – Tiris May 23 '14 at 6:34

According to already answered question :

How to force Wine into acting like 32-bit Windows on 64-bit Ubuntu?

you can switch between 32 and 64-bit windows by changing WINEARCH environment variable.

  • I ran into other issues, but will make another question for it. – Tiris May 24 '14 at 0:15
