    Question Installing Lego Digital Designer for Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS

    Former windows user here trying to find a user friendly way to install and play with a brick building program called Lego Digital Designer.
    https://lego-digital-designer.en.softonic.com/


    I'm not good at using the built in Terminal (what windows users call a Command Prompt) to install things like Wine although thats what people mention is needed (https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/ind...ram-for-linux/) Google searches also refer to Wine as needed.

    I've browsed the built in Ubuntu Software store but it only has a brick program called LeoCAD but it's a complete wimp compared to how Lego Digital Designer works and how many advanced bricks are available.

    Any help. This is one of my favorite past-time programs to fiddle with as a adult lego collector after working hours.

    The software store should have Wine listed for install. You have to install Wine and then, from within Wine, install your Lego program.

    Does wine use a browser or do i download through chrome and launch the lego installation through wine?

    i want to be careful

    You will have to d-l the program. Then you will use Wine to install the program.

    Didn't work tried installing wine with this from here https://linuxconfig.org/install-wine...c-beaver-linux
    Install Wine from Ubuntu repository
    To install Wine from a standard Ubuntu repository open up terminal and enter:FOR 64bit:
    $ sudo apt install wine64

    Check your version once the Wine installation is complete:$ wine --version
    wine-3.0
    After that i tried to check my computer, no way to launch wine. Tried installing both from software store too. Both failed to launch. and Wine didn't show up if i right clicked the installation file. Why is the no easy way instead of learning/digging through folders and code.

    My brain hurts.

    Since wine is (somewhat) useless without programs written for Windows and doesn't have a graphical UI, it does not show up in the GUI. I normally start installers from the command line; the calls that an Installer makes to the Windows-API to create menu-items get translated into the creation of a .desktop-file for running the installed program with wine. So what you'd do would be something like 'cd ~/Downloads; wine setupldd-pc-4_3_12.exe' (replace the directory where you put the installer for ~/Downloads and the actual name of your installer for setupldd-pc-4_3_12.exe) and you'd end up with a shortcut on the desktop and in the Menu (or whatever else your Desktop Environment offers ).

    The entry for this program in the Wine-AppDB has a few things to say about it: it says to use a 32-bit Wineprefix and to install Adobe Flash into that prefix using winetricks. Though I've followed those instructions all I got for my trouble was a quick flash of a window popping up followed by a segmentation fault. Either I got something wrong or there's some kind of regression, the report in the AppDB which rated LDD "gold" was made in 2017 using wine 1.6 ...

    Also, further development of LDD was stopped though it still is available for download.

    And while I don't use it myself, I've read good things about playonlinux, which is kind of a graphical frontend for Wine.
