Hello and I am new Ubuntu user! I got a problem about Wine.

After I installed a Windows game with Wine. I can't run it! I double click the game/software or run through the wine(At the top of the screen Applications > Wine), nothing comes out.

Anyone who can help me please? Thank you!

Here's the video that what I'm asking about:

Try opening it from the terminal and see what errors you are getting.


wine [file path for CS]

http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=3507 lists a few instances of this and it may be of some help also.

Also, have you tried any other programs using wine? Do they give similar results?

Yea... But... I installed in other hard disk, not drive_c. Is another partition. Does it matter?

Okay, let's watch this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cVWY7v4HqBs&feature=related)... Wine can support many games and softwares, after watch the video, watch this too. (http://appdb.winehq.org/)

Possibly. I've only ever installed inside drive_c and honestly, I've never had any problems with programs running. I've had to tweak programs to run efficiently, but never what you're experiencing.

Also, maybe you installed the game under the root. The wine appdb listed this as a potential reason for this.

try putting sudo infront of your wine command and see what happens.

Okay I fixed the problem! I can play Counter Strike 1.6 and run Any DVD converter Pro now!
The main reason is:
I haven't download and install Windows .dll files and some stuff like vC++ redist...

Anyway, thank you for spending time to help me solve the problem! Cheers. ;)
