I have recently migrated from Windows 7 to Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. Everything works perfectly except for some things. I have successfully installed the two games I play often on Windows. Call of Duty World at War, and NBA 2k14. Both games run perfectly on Wine/PlayonLinux. Gameplay is terrific just like on native Windows. The only problem I encountered was there is no audio coming out from the game. My speakers do work however, outside of the game/s, when using YouTube or listening to music. I hypothesised that the problem was that there is no DirectX11 on my system. Could this be the cause of my problem? If not, what could it be? And how do I fix it?

For NBA 2K14 According to this report:

you have to install


This post will help you do that.

  • If this works for both games you may consider accepting this as an answer.

  • im sorry my comment might have been misleading...i just liked that there was a fast answer. ok here is what happened. vcrun2010 succesfully installed thru winetricks. directx also installed but no sound yet. but then i followed the link you gave appdb.winehq.org/… had to install dotnet 2.0 and dsound. here was the problem. dsound installed fine but dotnet 2.0 couldnt be installed because it wouldnt work on 64 bit computer. i then followed this askubuntu.com/questions/231587/…, to install dotnet 2.0 Sep 26, 2015 at 5:34
  • now the installation said that dotnet 2.0 installed correctly. i still wondered because in winetricks, dotnet2.0 still appeared not installed. and then after testing if what i did worked, i launched cod waw and nba 2k14, and still no sound came out. any suggestions on what i should do? thanks so much :) Sep 26, 2015 at 5:36
