LXer: Ubuntu 7.10 + WINE vs. Windows XP
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 20, 2007
Published at LXer:
This week's release of Ubuntu 7.10 "Gutsy Gibbon" is a significant win for the free software community. Not only does this release incorporate an updated package set -- most notably with the Linux 2.6.22 kernel and GNOME 2.20, but it also delivers on new desktop innovations from BulletProofX and displayconfig-gtk to Compiz Fusion being enabled by default on supported systems. However, for those business professionals and gamers that remain dependent on some Windows-only binary applications, the WINE (WINE Is Not An Emulator) project has been making some excellent headway into supporting Windows applications on the Linux desktop. With Ubuntu 7.10 and WINE 0.9.46 in hand, we had set out to compare the performance between Windows XP and Gutsy Gibbon with WINE on two popular DirectX benchmarks.
[SOLVED] In ubuntu 12.1 unable to locate package tree
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 19, 2013
From the bash shell I tried to use the tree command and was advised to enter this command "sudo apt-get install tree" when I tried I got this message "E: Unable to locate package tree". I'm running Ubuntu from a thumb drive I haven't installed it, could that be the reason for the problem?
Installing Microsoft Office 2007 in Ubuntu 8.04/8.10/9.04 using Wine 1.1.12 to 16

UPDATED POST: (August 18, 2009)
Since the day of the release of Wine version 1.1.24 the regression issue was resolved and probably future versions (1.1.24+) will do the same.
The guide is just a summary of all the online guides that I have tried and to be honest many of those guides gave me so many headaches for the simple reason, "I'm a newbie to UBUNTU". So I've decided to join in this forum last May 2009 and made a simple guide that's especially made for newbies like me.
Thanks to all the online guides that helped me formulate this simple guide all the credits must be given to all of you..

[SOLVED] wine offline installation ubuntu 9.04
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 10, 2009
I'm brand-new to Linux and Ubuntu, and I need to install Wine.
I'm installing it on an offline computer, (I'm using Windows on the online pc), and I'm in need of the extra libraries required for proper Wine installation.
The easiest way I've seen is to download/install the libraries via internet through the terminal.
I can't though, because the computer's offline.
Can anyone provide the libraries or show me where I can download them?

Games running slowly on Ubuntu 12.04 and Wine
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 17, 2013
I am loving Ubuntu, especially because I can get Steam to work on Wine! But I have noticed that some of my Steam games don't seem to like running on Wine, and I am wondering if it could be a Graphics card problem? The games install and load up fine, no problems at all, but when I try to play, they run very slowly! I had been told by a friend that because I have an ATI Graphics Card I would be better off running the OpenSource driver rather than the Proprietary driver, and I'm starting to wonder if he is right, since at the moment I am using the proprietary driver from the ATI site. So a couple of questions then:
1. Do you think using the OpenSource driver would make a difference to my speed issues?
2. If so, could someone point me towards a guide that would show me how to install the OpenSource drivers?
Has anyone been able to play Portal 2 in Steam under wine on Ubuntu 12.04
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 22, 2012
I'am runing Ubuntu 12.04, and have tried to install Portal 2 in Steam under wine. I used PlayOnLinux to do the hard work. The installation worked without errors, but the game chrash during load. I wonder if there are anyone that have been able to actualy play the game under theese conditions, and if so how.
Other game works fine, like Portal and Left 4 Dead.
I have a i5 core and nVidia GeForce 310M.
Ubuntu 12.04 64bit + Wine = bad combo? Page 2
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 5, 2012
Wine is one of those programs that needs to have a 32 bit part, because many Windows programs (like for example Steam) are still 32 bit. In a pure 64 bit environment they won't run.
That it still doesn't run is kind of weird, but sadly i can't really help with that. I fiddled with Wine for about half a year with various games and came to the conclusion that it is much easier to simply dualboot with Windows to run games. I hope this changes at least for games available on Steam when the native Steam client is released (according to Valve sometime this year).
Civilization IV under Wine for Ubuntu 11.04
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 15, 2011
I'm not certain this is the correct place for me to log my ask.
I'm trying to load Civilization IV (game ) under Wine (latest version that comes with 11.04) .
I was able to install it, but when I try to launch the game, it says it cannot locate the DVD-ROM. Please insert the correct DVD-ROM, select OK and restart app.
I haven't used Wine before was checking to see if anyone had any tips on how I can get Wine to work with Civilization IV. I've done some research but the only thing I can find relates to really old flavors of Ubuntu.
