Thread: Wine not responding.

  1. #1

    Question Wine not responding.

    I have installed openSUSE 13.1 "Bottle" 32bit and I also have Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit installed.
    So, I want to run the windows applications in suse, especially Steam and Steam Games with good fps.
    I installed wine through terminal by typing "sudo zypper install wine" it installed the latest version. But when I try to open wine, just nothing happens!
    Even the wine uninstaller doesn't work, forget about the windows applications, they also didn't work and the .exe files didn't have the wine icon!
    I uninstalled wine and then reinstalled but no change. Please help.

    P.S: I'm new to linux and I'm noob so please explain me the problem and the solution in simple.

    Thanks in advance.

    Of course. You have to run "wine something", where something is the
    Windows app you need.

    What do you get when you run it in a terminal window?

    Try with some of the included applications, does this work f.e? If not, please post the output.
    Code:
    winemine
    And: Are you trying to run the apps installed in your Windows 7 installation?
    That won't work. You'll have to install them with wine.

    Oh, and btw, steam is available for Linux as well. You don't need wine for that anymore...

    suse is not openSUSE. suse is an enterprise product which you need to "buy". openSUSE is FOSS(Free and Open Source Software)
    There is a native steam client. Why are you not using it. Is the *game* which you are playing a MS only game ?

    Hi
    Just to clarify, SUSE is FOSS as well and free to download, you pay for
    support and updates

    Yeah wine wont open anything via the main menus, most .exe's have to be installed via right click in your file manager.
    A common mistake by newcomers, its understandable.
    But is there a game you want to play in windows steam you cant in the linux native client?
    As you can install the native linux client via the repositories:

    software.opensuse.org:

    there are a few to choose from, use the one that seems to work for you
