Ubuntu wine vs Kubuntu wine
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 9, 2013
I though both versions are identical. But obviously there must be something different. I am running an application trough samba client. It is working on Ubuntu but not on Kubuntu.
Does anyone know what is the reason for that regarding on fact that wine versions are identical. I am running the application trough command "env WINEPREFIX="/home/codingeek/.wine" wine Z:\\var\\tmp\\kdecache-codingeek\\krun\\3331.0.PTal.exe".
Best regards, Janez
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.....
p11kit error Workaround WINE in AMD64 Ubuntu 12.04
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 24, 2012
If you get the following error on 12.04 when running WINE:
p11-kit: couldn't load module: /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/pkcs11/gnome-keyring-pkcs11.so: /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/pkcs11/gnome-keyring-pkcs11.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Install the gnome-keyring and p11-kit
$ sudo apt-get install gnome-keyring p11-kit
Open up nautilus as root
$ gksu nautilus
Navigate to /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ and create a directory called pkcs11
Then, go to /usr/lib32/i386-linux-gnu/pkcs11/gnome-keyring-pkcs11.so (while still in root nautilus) and make that *.so file executable (right-click -> properties).
Close root nautilus.
Issue the following command (in a terminal) to establish a symlink.
sudo ln -s /usr/lib32/i386-linux-gnu/pkcs11/gnome-keyring-pkcs11.so /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/pkcs11/gnome-keyring-pkcs11.so
iTunes 10 not working under Wine
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 28, 2010
I got the XP 32 bit newest version of iTunes from the iTunes website. I got the newest version of Wine from the Ubuntu Software Center. I have a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.10
So when I install iTunes it seems to work because it goes through the whole install process. But when I click the iTunes icon to launch it I Get a little box with this error message:
Apple Application Support was not found
Apple Application Support is required to run iTunes. Please uninstall iTunes, then install iTunes again.
Error 2 (Windows error 2)
So what can I do to fix this? I already uninstalled then re installed iTunes like the message says to do but I still keep getting the same error.
Please help! Thanks!
Install/Uninstall iTunes with WINE
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 1, 2010
I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my husband's laptop. He insists that I install iTunes.
Wine comes with the 10.04 release. I downloaded iTunes 188.8.131.52(32x) and it appeared to install ok. It said it was successful. However, immediately upon the 'installation successful' notification, another window popped up that said, "iTunes was not installed correctly. Please reinstall iTunes. Error 7 (Windows error 126).
Whenever I try to open iTunes, this error message pops up. I used the WINE uninstall option for iTunes, however, the window pops up giving the option to either repair or uninstall, and when I click uninstall it appears to go through the process and even says it did - only to discover the fine print telling me that it "installed" the program sucessfully. This is very frustrating. I cannot seem to get the program to uninstall.
I found a thread that said to delete the files manually, but I don't know how to do this.

Problem opening iTunes download with Wine with Ubuntu
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 16, 2011
I've run into some problems while trying to install iTunes onto my system (Ubuntu 10.10) using Wine. I've installed Wine and configured everything properly, and then I download iTunes. I've tried downloading several versions, including 7.2 (older version) and the newest version (iTunes 10). However, when I try to open this downloaded file, I get the message:
End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not
a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the
latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on
the last disk(s) of this archive.
zipinfo: cannot find zipfile directory in one of /home/candyshop/Downloads/iTunesSetup.exe or
/home/candyshop/Downloads/iTunesSetup.exe.zip, and cannot find /home/candyshop/Downloads/iTunesSetup.exe.ZIP, period.
Can anyone tell me why I am running i
Problems with Wine and iTunes.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 19, 2010
I just installed Ubuntu 11.04, and installed Wine, so that I could use iTunes. iTunes worked relatively well, but wouldn't recognize my iPhone. I thought it would be a good idea to uninstall it and reinstall it. Well, it won't let me uninstall it. It pops up with a program error, saying "The program msiexec.exe has encountered a serious problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." Then the add/remove programs in Wine freezes and won't respond, though it will let me move the window around. I would like to get iTunes off of my computer and then start fresh with something that will work properly. I am not familiar with Linux at all, so anything would be appreciated.
Ubuntu/Kubuntu with WINE
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 30, 2013
Right now I have no Linux PC. Previously I had an Ubuntu 8.04 PC, which has since crashed. However, I have a Windows 7 PC that I'm thinking of overwriting (or MAYBE making a dual boot) and installing either Ubuntu 13.04 or Kubuntu 13.04. I've never used WINE before, but am thinking of giving it a shot because there are a few applications that don't have Linux version that I must use. I was poking around on the WINE web page and found a list of downloads (http://www.winehq.org/download). Is it a different download depending on whether I choose Ubuntu or Kubuntu? Obviously, the first option listed is for Ubuntu. However, I was reading that Kubuntu is based on Debian, so is the right WINE the second link on that list? Or is it the same WINE as Ubuntu.
And, of course, I need to make a choice between Ubuntu and Kubuntu. Ubuntu might be a good choice because I've used it before. Kubuntu might be a good choice because it's KDE and I've found I really like KDE software.
Moving to Ubuntu or Suse or other from Fedora (Wine, OpenOffice, Multimedia)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 9, 2008
I have a Laptop with Fedora and consider moving to Ubuntu or another distribution that runs satisfactory on a laptop. Would be great if anybody could help me with the questions I have:
1) What does Ubuntu include? I couldn't find this on their website and don't want to download hundreds of Megabytes after the installation as I had to do it for Fedora.
2) Is OpenOffice and Fedora included?
3) Is Wine included and running without problems?
4) How good is Ubuntu with supporting current multimedia files, e.g. flv, mp3, dvd player etc
5) How likely is it that I can install Ubuntu over my Fedora installation without cleaning the harddisk first?
6) How good is wireless network support?
7) My laptop is not the youngest - is Ubuntu as resource thirsty as Fedora?
8) Does Ubuntu include mySQL and PHP?
9) I used Suse some years ago which was very comprehensive. Is the current distribution still meeting my criteria above?
small distro + wine
location: linux.com - date: November 8, 2009
howdy folks ;)
I need a little help from y'all...
I'm looking for a small distro that can run wine relatively well and/or is not hell to install...
and I'll be running that linux distro on a virtual machine, hence the need for it to be lightweight
basically, I'm running two custom softwares for work in my home computer. one works fine in win7 (gasp! i know... i know...) while one does not. I thought "oh well, there's XP mode" but turns out my processor does not have the necessary features for it
I'm trying my luck if I can run the non-working software with wine.
any ideas? I was able to run wine relatively easily slax before (with some minor font problems) and have also made a virtual XP machine before in Ubuntu (in a separate partition) so I know I should still be able to function with two full blown OSes running alongside each other without crashing so here's hoping that win7+small distro should be fast enough as well
