  1. Re: Vote for GOG to add Linux versions of games they sell

    I also realize that they are not anti Linux but that they are putting too many limiters on themselves. This all or nothing approach is rather frustrating. Taking steps would seem far more reasonable...
  2. Re: Vote for GOG to add Linux versions of games they sell

    Now you're just putting words in their mouths. No one said anything about Linux being "beneath them", quite the opposite, in fact. They actually want to do Linux, they just don't want to half-***...

    Anyone else having trouble getting Psychonauts to download from USC? I left the install running all night and when I checked it this morning, it hadn't progressed at all. I rebooted the machine and...

    Re: Kotor on Wine

    That's probably the copy protection on the game, Wine can't support it. You'll need to use a cracked executable. Don't ask where or how to get one, they are questionably legal (at best) and a...
  5. Re: Updated Ubuntu this morning, and it broke sound in WINE

    Which version of Wine are you using, the stable from the Ubuntu repository or the development from the Wine PPA?
  6. Re: wine says to install mono although it is already installed

    Mono is not quite a 100% fully functional alternative to .NET, so you could just be running up against a missing function of some kind. Wine is probably just spitting out a default error message for...

    [SOLVED] Re: javascript not working on IE7 browser wine.

    For testing website code functionality against IE, I strongly recommend against trying to do it through Wine. Not only is it nearly impossible to get IE to work properly in Wine, even if it did run,...

    [SOLVED] Re: javascript not working on IE7 browser wine.

    My only suggestion would be don't use Internet Explorer, it doesn't actually work in Wine: http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=application&iId=25

    Re: Unity 3D and wine games

    Just grasping at straws here, but it might have something to do with the keyboard shortcuts associated with Unity, or some other plugin of Compiz. I know a few of the Unity ones are ALT or SHIFT plus...

    Re: Bad idea: Updated Wine using sudo

    Sorry to jump into this so late, but installing Wine itself using sudo is not only NOT a bad idea, it is required. Installing or running applications in Wine using sudo is the bad idea, as it changes...

    Re: Help me please Spirit tales in win

    It might not use HackShield, but it does use some kind of anti-cheat/hack software (according to the game devs), most of which work on the same principles and will never work with Wine. You'd...
  13. Re: Silent Hill 2: Director's Cut broke my OS apparently

    The command "wineserver -k" should work just as well for killing any and all Wine-based applications.
  14. Re: Silent Hill 2: Director's Cut broke my OS apparently

    Just a FYI, system crashes like that are not caused by Wine, but rather it is Wine exposing some other, deeper problem with your OS. Most often, it is actually some kind of driver conflict/problem,...

    Re: Steam savegames after OS update

    Where was "My Documents" linked to in Wine? By default, it is mapped to your home directory and if you overwrote your home directory in your 12.04 upgrade, you probably lost those saved games. Many...

    Re: installing games

    PlayOnLinux IS Wine. All POL does is act as a front end for Wine, making some of the things you can already do with Wine a little easier to accomplish.

    While I agree that a VM can be very helpful...

    Re: Handling multiple patched wine versions

    Don't install your patched Wine in its default location and specify which Wine executable to run by its path. I don't remember the default install path, but let's assume it's /usr/bin/wine, just...
  18. Re: Why do I have to compile wine to add patches to it?

    Because there is an approval process that all submitted patches must go through before they are integrated into Wine. Until that approval is given, a patch cannot be integrated, but there is nothing...

    You can ignore all those "fixme" errors, they are just developer notes about functions still not implemented in Wine (you can't fix them unless you are going to code and submit patches to Wine). The...

    Re: How do I install Windows programs with Wine?

    Yeah, you've been given a bit of bad info here. PlayOnLinux is not necessary, but it can be helpful, especially for inexperienced users. Steam works fine in Wine and has for years now. Now, the games...
  22. Re: Can I please get some guidance on learning more about .wine?

    Did you do what it says and install Mono? You can use winetricks to do that for you, it should already be installed with the default Wine package.
  23. Re: Wine install to 12.04 wants to remove Google-Earth and some...

    Wine shouldn't be doing that, it's probably the 12.04 upgrade doing it (those look like some leftover post-upgrade removals). The Google Earth one is a little odd; did you install it via a repo or...

    Re: Cain and Abel on Ubuntu 12.04 with Wine

    It may be the most user friendly and have the most functionality, but it still won't work in Wine. You need to re-consider your alternatives or only run C&A in Windows.
