    Re: Insalling Directx

    Thanks for the reply

    Please bear in mind I am VERY new to this

    I have downloaded a text file

    I have typed sh winetrick and selected the appropriate DX option (DXd9 or something like that)

    It appears to do what it is supposed to

    When I click Dxdiag still nothing happens

    Sorry for being so thick

    Hope you can give more help

    Re: Insalling Directx

    winetricks is the answer.
    open a terminal and type

    Code:
    wget http://www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks
    Make the script exectutable:

    Code:
    chmod +x winetricks
    Then run it

    Code:
    sh winetricks
    Select the DirectX version and any other packages you need from the list.
