64 bit vs 32 bit ubuntu 7.04 for WINE/wowc?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 21, 2007
This is going to be my first Linux installation.
I plan on using WINE to run world of warcraft and potentially Microstation J and/or Autocadd 2000.
There will also be lots of internet movies, flash, and open office type stuff.
My machine has a 64 bit AMD chip in it.....
So the question is this;
Will installing the 64 bit version of Ubuntu make everything run faster and better, or will it be bad?
and a related question; does the 64 bit WINE run programs like a 64 bit windows, or a 32 bit windows?
Any recommendations on which version will cause the least amount of pain and suffering? After I get it hammered out on my computer, I'll be switching my brothers' machines over as well.... and they aren't super technical.
Any other advice is welcome too.....
Plants vs. Zombies through Wine?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 15, 2011
So I tried installing the popcap game 'Plants vs. Zombies' in 10.10 using Wine, and everything seemed to go right. The game installed without any error messages. And it loads fine when I choose it from the Wine menu. I'm able to open the game, and start a new game. But when the game actually starts, my mouse won't grab anything in the screen? I'm new at using Ubuntu, and would appreciate any suggestions anyone might have. Thanks in advance.
What Ubuntu PC games can I play?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 5, 2013
I have a System76 Lemur Ultra Thin (lemu4) which is now discontinued. It has an Intel Ivy Bridge Core i5-3210M CPU with built-in integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000.
I know that this is not as powerful as a Nvidia GeForce GTX 780M, but what kind of Ubuntu PC games can I expect to play at 1366 X 768 resolution?
Here is a list of Steam for Ubuntu Linux PC games that I currently own:
Amnesia: The Dark Descent
Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs
Crusader Kings II
English Country Tune
Leisure Suit Larry Reloaded in the Land of Lounge Lizards
Organ Trail: Director's Cut
The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief
Stealth Bastard Deluxe
Superbrothers: Sword and Sorcery EP
Thomas Was Alone
Tiny & Big: Grandpa's Leftovers
I know that it can't play all of these titles at maximum graphics
downloading games via wine tricks help!
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 11, 2013
hey guys ! i am currently downloading games from Wine tricks.. and i just want to ask, if i download games through wine, would wine always run the games that i downloaded through them would be perfect? i mean some manual downloaded games for wine dont work, so my point is would it work if i try to download games from the emulator itself?

How to make steam games work?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 21, 2011
I installed team fortress 2 and steam into wine ,and now the game refuses to work. I installed it using this tutorial:
Everything worked great, steam runs fine, and everything goes just as it should, except when I try to start the game. I click the 'Play' icon under Team Fortress 2, then the 'Preparing Team Fortress 2' window pops up, goes away and then NOTHING HAPPENS.
Is this a problem with Wine or should I look elsewhere for a solution?

i have ubuntu 11.10 on my laptop. i just installed steam through wine only(without any support from playonlinux and the likes). what i wanted to ask is, where do the games get installed, i.e. do they get installed on the ubuntu partition or the windows C drive?
also, where does steam get installed on ubuntu, or does it get installed on windows as well?
Blank screen during fullscreen videos and Steam games. What do I do?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 2, 2013
I'm unable to take screenshots/screengrabs. Everything I try ends up being a blank, black screen, though I can see my cursor.Full-screen video doesn't work in any web browser. I see a blank, black screen, but I can hear the audio.Full-screen games in Steam don't work. I see a blank color, but I can hear the audio.
I have an ATI Radeon HD 6850 (BARTS) and I'm running the latest Catalyst drivers on 12.04 (x64). The OS's GUI seems to be snappy and smooth, nor do I have any other problems. What can I do to fix this?
No Sound for Steam Games
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 5, 2010
SOLUTION CAN BE FOUND BELOW THE ORIGINAL PROBLEM
I need help as I don't know what other options to pursue. My Steam games lack sound, but the problem isn't localized to just Steam though it seems to be the crux of the problem.
I'm running a 64-bit Kubuntu Karmic installation with a standard Wine installation (i.e., not Wine64). I installed Steam to its own wine prefix and the only winetricks I did were to install fonts.
When I load up Steam, sound dies. Exiting Steam solves this problem and I can hear sound again. This leaves me to believe this is a problem with my sound system but I do not know what could cause it. Do note that since I'm using Kubuntu Karmic, it does not have PulseAudio installed by default. I believe the sound system is ALSA still.
The act of starting up Steam causes the sound to die out. I can't hear YouTube videos or anything. I also have Guild Wars installed to a different wine prefix and it doesn't have any sound problems by itself
