OpenSUSE :: Wine Not Opening Some Windows Programs?

Jun 17, 2011

Some windows programs won't run after I have installed them with Wine. They either won't run or they make the screen go to a black painting screen (screen goes black and you can paint over it with your mouse to make the desktop reappear). I have tried changing the windows version and made no difference. I have even tried opening it in a virtual window and made no difference (Window opens then closes)

Ubuntu :: Wine Not Opening Programs?

Aug 12, 2010

was a regular windows user for ~10 years now, but my current pc wasnt installing windows for some reason so i switched to linux to try it out.

Any program i try to open with wine, it says "opening _____________" in the taskbar, and then NOTHING HAPPENS! This is really irritating me, becuase if i got an error message i could try to figure out whats wrong, but when NOTHING AT ALL happens

Ubuntu :: Opening Windows Executables In Wine ?

Jul 29, 2011

Have installed Wine - version 1.2.3-Oubuntu1-ppa2-maverick1(wine1.2) from the Ubuntu softwear center . Downloaded windows executable PAF5EnglishSetup.exe which is a Genealogy softwear program from a trusted source ( .

However , when i attempt to open with Wine Windows Program Loader i get the pop up window saying the file is not marked as executable then reference to "executable bit" . I then see the following:

"You should only mark a file as executable via the file permissions if you know what you are doing." I do not know what i am doing . Therefore , reluctant to go messing with something i am not familiar with but i really need this softwear installed .

Software :: Invisible Windows In Wine - Programs Never Appear

Aug 10, 2010

I finally got around to installing Linux on my laptop the other day, and I'm trying to use Wine to run some windows apps. Problem is, my programs never appear. They DO start - I can see them in 'ps -e' as well as Gnome System Monitor. Yet the window never appears. It's not just one program either; first I tried running Steam from the terminal and I can tell that it successfully launches. The window just doesn't get drawn. All other windows become unfocused when it launches and I'm even able to type in my password to log in (I know this because after I hit enter the "Steam Login" entry disappears from the taskbar and the "Steam" entry appears in it's place) but no Steam related windows ever appear.

The second program I've been trying to emulate is EVE Online. Similar thing happens: The EVE splash screen DOES appear, along with it's entry in the taskbar, but when it closes, the EVE client never becomes visible - no taskbar entry this time either. Again, I can see it running in ps -e or System Monitor, and one of my CPUs cores becomes maxed out, so I know it's running. Also, I just noticed that I can right click Steam's invisible entry in the tray and bring up the context menu, but nothing more than that. I've heard of fonts being invisible/incorrect under Wine, but not the entire program! I've googled and tried running things in compatibility mode for various versions of windows, but have had no progress. What am I missing?

Debian Lenny
Wine 1.0.1-174-gc4039bd
Gnome (with and without Compiz)
1.66GHz Dual Core CPU

OpenSUSE :: After Applying The Latest Wine Update Mouse Cursor In Wine Windows Is Now Purple/magenta/pink

Oct 19, 2009

I don't know if it's just my system, but after applying the latest Wine update, the mouse cursor in Wine windows is now purple/magenta/pink, whatever. Not a big problem, just annoying. I've looked through the various config files in ~home and /usr/share/wine, and can't find any parameter that might even remotely address this.

OpenSUSE :: Wine - Remove Menu Entries After Uninstalling Programs?

May 26, 2011

The only MS program I need on my computer is Word 2007 for the equation editor to write/edit files from work. So after installing Wine I installed MSOffice2007. Excel worked OK (although I don't need it - I am perfectly happy with the Libre Office spreadsheet). Word however froze each time so I tried to uninstall and reinstall it. However I always got an error message when trying to uninstall with Wine. So I followed the advice of some strands in this forum and deleted the Program Files folder from the directory. However the menus are still in Wine/Programs/Microsoft Office even though they lead to nowhere. I tried to reinstall but still I nothing happened. I presume the old entries still lead to the position where previously the .exe files were located. Now my question is either how can I remove these menu entries and try installing again - or even better - is there a Linux programme that can read/edit the equations written in Word 2007?

OpenSUSE :: Opening Windows On Specific Monitor

Mar 28, 2010

I have a multi-head system (three monitors). Using KDE 3.6 I was able to specify that new windows were to open on the monitor on which the mouse cursor was located. I don't recall where the setting was configured but I can't find anything like it in 4.3. Is there somewhere I can set this option or is it no longer available?

OpenSUSE :: 11.2 - Macros Opening Separate Buffers / Windows

Feb 8, 2010

I switched from 11.1 to 11.2 last month. I'm now having a smoother experience with openSUSE, with some exceptions.

One is Emacs.
A rather annoying "feature" that has appeared is the following: When editing a LaTeX file, compiling it (C-c C-c, using AucTeX macros) makes the Emacs window become shorter by one line. The same happens if I switch to some other buffer. It does not happen if I switch back to the LaTeX buffer. So, after just a few editing/compiling/checking errors sequences I find the original window half of its initial size...

A similar problem occurs when editing IDLWAVE scripts (it's a proprietary scientific data analysis language widely used in my field, but still has its Emacs macros), but only if I open an interactive IDL-shell to run the script.

So, I imagine it's not a problem related to AucTeX, although it might be related to the macros opening separate buffers/windows (e.g.: error messages) associated with the current buffer. Also, the problem does not go away if I remove my own .emacs customization files. Checking the Emacs bug lists, it seems that there are some bugs related to window resizing, although I have not been able to find exactly the same problem I am having. But, before reporting this one, I'd like to hear from fellow Emacs/openSUSE users. Just in case I'm messing things up somehow.

Currently using: Emacs v 23.1.1
Some more info: Dell Precision M65 portable workstation, NVIDIA Quadro FX1500 using the binary NVIDIA driver). Using OpenSuse 11.2 + KDE 4.3.1

Ubuntu :: Opening A Browser In WINE?

Oct 26, 2010

I have been working on this program for Windows all month it is a logging program for amateur radio. Anyway, 75 percent of my users are using Linux. I'm guessing with WINE because the program is Windows based. That's all fine and well with me, but I have a problem. The donations option, opens a browser and lets the user make a donation to my paypal account, and the callsign lookup option opens the browser to the database for whatever callsign the user enters. WINE, doesn't seem to support opening browsers for my software, but I've seen it do it for other software. I was wondering what I needed to run to have WINE open a browser on linux like the other software I've seen do it.Here is a snippet of the code used to open the browser to my donations page:




What can I run the URL with that WINE will understand?

3) Make the Jack MIDI connection between my MIDI keyboard and Hexter.

Ubuntu Security :: Opening Privileged Programs From User Desktop?

Apr 13, 2010

How do you open a program, in this instance "Zenmap", from the desktop in a user account when it requires root privileges? Is there a way to be prompted for the password, the same way, for instance, you're prompted when mounting a new file system or making a change to the system? I tried entering 'sudo /usr/bin/zenmap' when creating the shortcut, however that didn't work.

Ubuntu :: Opening Many Programs And Placing Them In Specific Monitors / Workspaces?

Jun 16, 2011

I am fairly new to Ubuntu and was wondering if anybody knows of a way to open up a number of programs and placing them in specific spots programmatically. Basically, I'm trying to avoid having to open my IDE, multiple terminal windows, browsers, etc... and then having to place them all in the exact position I want when my machine boots up. Ideally, I could say:Program A, is placed on Monitor 1, workspace 1, at position 0, 0, with height and width 600 x 400. Program B, is placed on Monitor 2, workspace 2, at position 600, 500, with height and width 1000 x 600

Ubuntu :: Opening File Manager Endlessly Creating In Programs Bar. Can't Stop It?

Mar 8, 2010

When I turn on my computer I am greeted by an unending stream of "Starting File Managers" appearing in the programs list. This cannot be stopped, though none of the file managers actually open. They just sit there filling up my programs bar and wasting my cpu slowing down computer. It also means I cant upon my own folders, or see what programs I have open.If I run terminal, type xkill and click on one of the buttons in the programs list, that kills them all, and I can see my programs again for a bit, until it fills up again. The panel disappears and appears again, with all the spawning messages gone and any other programs I have open remain there. Its just the randomly spawned "Starting File Managers" that don't come back.

My CPU fluctuates. Its around 60% to 90% load, when it should be idle, but is instead opening all these windows.When I view the processes the most CPU intensive (when I sort) is Gnome System Monitor at 6% and then Gnome panel at 5%,gconfd-2 is as around 2%, compiz.real, dbus-deamon hover around 1%. And everything else is generally at 0%.So somewhere, a hidden process is using about 70% of my CPU load. Which isn't shown in system-monitor. Maybe because its an admin process and I can only see simple user processes. I dunno.There is something else though. I have a process with no name appearing, its blank. And it keeps disappearing and re-appearing. So you can hardly select it hard enough to kill it. I managed to kill it once and it said error, process (large number, 10,000 or 100,000) does not exist. So can't be killed.When I do an xkill the console writes:

anthony@Anthony-Acer:~$ xkill
Select the window whose client you wish to kill with button 1....

Ubuntu :: WINE Won't Install Any Other Programs?

May 31, 2010

I installed WINE to get some old games to work on my Ubuntu box. (Return to Castle Wolfenstein)I tried downloading some demos and it says BLOCKED: WINE START UNIX and to read the executable bit. I did, and it says it will NOT install any programs downloaded from the internet. I thought 'fine, I guess they have to be retail games' so I popped the disk in and it tells me the same thing. Any exe program I EVER try to install from anywhere is just BLOCKED: WINE START UNIX. Why is this happening?
