    Wine on Lucid

    I installed Wine from my terminal.
    It worked well. I tried playing my favourite game 'Plants vs. Zombies' from my hard disk from which I used to play it on my Windows.
    The game didnt respond properly on Wine. The entire screen froze and I had to reboot my system.
    I tried playing it next time on my windows. I encountered the same problem. I am wondering what is wrong..
    Can anybody help? Pls?

    have a look here for any additional instructions: http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManage...ation&iId=9657

    you might also check play on linux which is a GUI front end for wine with plenty preconfigured stuff.

    What is your interest in lucid? Why aren't you using a more recent OS?

    Re: Wine on Lucid

    I want to install the most recent version but I dont have a proper internet connection. I am using my mobile to access internet on my laptop. I have successfully installed all the updates and upgrades with the slow mobile internet.
    I am a software person, want to know more about the unix environment, but seems like the theory I learnt back at my college doesnt reflect anything in my hands-on experience.
    I am trying to learn what I can about the unix environment and since this is an open source, I love it.

    I got the free cd when lucid was released that was back at 2011 I guess..they dont give free cds anymore. I had installed lucid on dual boot nearly 3 times but I was never really able to use it to my wish. Now I am free and I am enjoying my lucid..

    Makes sense. I put off even looking at Ubuntu until I got "unlimited" internet (even though the speed is a bit sucky).

    Re: Wine on Lucid

    To use a program with Wine you have to install it within your Ubuntu system, you can't just use Wine to run a copy that you have already installed within Windows.

    To do this just run the installer using Wine.
