Re: Viewing and running exe files in Ubuntu
You have to install the games USING Wine in order to play them, and in general, games don't do well.
You need to go to the WineHQ website, the application compatibility search page, and look up the ratings for the games you want to play.
Anything rated less than Gold is going to be a waste of time installing.
Also, modern games often need both hardware 3D acceleration and DirectX 10 support. Unless you have one of the newer video cards and the accelerated drivers, you will not be able to play the games.
Linux is a BAD choice for trying to play Windows games.
Ubuntu 15.04 Mate, Mint 17.1; MS Win 8.1, Win10 TP.
Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.
