    Graphics driver problem using Wine

    hello, i am a sort of gamer transferring over to linux. I am trying to get one of my favorites, haloCE (the first one) on ubuntu. I have followed several online guides on how to do this using WINE and it installs ok but after loading the graphics driver does not seem to work, it shows a black screen or weird lines and shapes with the background menu music. Graphics card is a Mobility Radeon X1300.

    i have tried installing the direct x windows components and using the useff, use00 and use11 switches. I have also tried virtual desktop and windowed modes.

    Did you run ?
    winetricks mfc42

    http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManage...estingId=69911

    Your video card is a 9 yr old bottom end model..& ATI as well..
    Don't expect too much.
    I guess you are running the open source radeon driver ?
    I don't know if you can make any improvements..

    this is what i get from running winetricks mfc42:

    Code:
    Executing w_do_call mfc42

    as for the card, i know that its old but:
    1) it works on the windows partition of this computer without lagging (which i plan to get rid of if i can)
    2) i have had it run on much worse hardware, actually.

    thanks for the info, any other ideas?

    mfc42 seems borked in winetricks right now.

    Try
    Code:
    winetricks vbrun6sp6
    instead.

    Works for me.
    Running wine/WoW on a AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200+(2.6GHz)w/4GB DDRII(667) and a NV9600GSO w/768MB DDRIII.

    Code:
    Unknown arg vbrun6sp6
    Usage: /usr/bin/winetricks [options] [command|verb|path-to-verb] ...
    Executes given verbs.  Each verb installs an application or changes a setting.
    furthermore,

    ...the problem must be somewhere else.

    I know GW2 work on my desktop with a newer low budget ATI graphics card. I've had virtually no luck in gaming in linux on this machine and I can only think that the MESA driver doesn't actually work very well. Still a solution would be nice.

    I've been using mostly Ubuntu and now Mint since 2007, but recently I've been running windows7 for the last month and a half. That's just wrong in my opinion. Can't wait for the day when I can afford a better linux laptop.

    With intel HD iGfx you need latest stable kernel & intel driver.

    Try adding xorg-edgers ppa for both..

    The default std *buntu distro has SNA features turned off.

    Just because something runs ok on windows doesn't mean it's equivalent under linux. This is even more the case with older ATI video chips because even if they did have proprietary support at one time, they dropped it once the open source driver got to a resonable level of 2D functions.

    2D support should work but barely any 3D, this thread pretty much sums it up:
