    Direct 3d

    How do I get Direct 3d installed? I'm completely lost

    I am running Ubuntu 10.10, but I have little experience so far.

    What other kinds of information do I need to provide for help in this matter?

    Re: Direct 3d

    If you are talking about installing direct3d in wine, then (from a terminal window):
    Code:
    winetricks d3dx9
    Why do you need to install Direct 3D? What are you trying to do?

    Re: Direct 3d

    I'm trying to get a game to run properly. However, I now see that I've had direct3d installed all along. So, I guess my issues are coming from some other source.

    Thanks for the help.

    Re: Direct 3d

    I'm trying to play Star Trek Online. The Hud and menus work, and I can see other player's names. However, it's like somebody turned off all the lights and I'm flying around in the dark. I can just make out the outlines of ships, and I can see some running lights, but for the most part, it's pretty dark. I've posted this question on the STO forums, but nobody's replied yet.

    If you're on Ubuntu 10.10, I suspect you need to uninstall STO, install the Wine PPA for Ubuntu, and get the latest version of wine. Then try installing STO again. STO has a gold rating on Wine 1.4 without any workarounds.

    I will try that as soon as I get a minute! That sounds like it'll be extremely easy. Thanks for the suggestion. I'll let you know how it goes.
