    help with WINE in Ubuntu


    i've installed the latest wine, but when i try to install any program it doesn't work. for example, Daemon tools - it opens the first window with the agreement, i press next. opens another window and i press next again. then it closes with no error or anything, just like that.
    Nokia pc suite - doesnt even start it.
    Jedi knight, jedi academy, it starts the download but at 34% an error window pops: "component: Game1"
    "file group: Game 1 Files"
    "Files: d:\gamedata\gamedata\base\assets0.pk3"
    "error: Not Ready"

    and after that - it closes. is there something i need to config? are these specific programs dont work with wine? i've read that Jedi Academy works fine with it. what could be the problem?
    im using KDE and GNOME, both.

    thanks for your help

    I seriusly doubt it. Daemon tools install a virtual scsi miniport driver to create the virtual drive. Wine has exactly zero support for windows device drivers.

    No idea about that one.

    Jedi knight, jedi academy, it starts the download but at 34% an error window pops: "component: Game1"
    "file group: Game 1 Files"
    "Files: d:\gamedata\gamedata\base\assets0.pk3"

    Check the winedb, with a bit of luck, you will find info about the current state of that app on wine, and comments from the users telling their experiences, workarounds, solutions, etc.

    The desktop environment is not relevant. Wine is desktop agnostic.

    All in all, if you want to use software that's protected with anticopy, you ned to check the legality on your country, and, if possible, use a nocd patched exe.
