Please help a newbie to linux. Problem with wine!

Post by tuvasmanger » Sat Sep 21, 2019 11:33 am

Please help a newbie to linux. I barely installed wine, but there were some problems and crashes with it. I could launch one application, but games do not want.

Please use the forum Code tags, when posting terminal commands and output:

Code: Select all

As k3ck3c stated your first port of call would be the AppDB. Obviously you would look at:
WineHQ AppDB: Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and not:
WineHQ AppDB: Grand Theft Auto IV. :lol:
GTA: SA is subject to regressions, from time to time, but should work OK, with Wine.

It may be worth trying it with D9VK (for better D3D9 performance) - if your graphics card + driver has Vulkan support.
Other users are reporting that GTA: SA is working with D9VK.
E.g. see: Github : Joshua-Ashton/d9vk : Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas has graphics and gameplay issues #270.

Understanding wine isnt too easy because its so incredible flexable ...

There is the winefiles wich are in /usr/ when you installed wine from your distro.
When you build it yourself, it went to /usr/local by default, but thats the thing with wine, once all related files are together, it can run from literally everywhere, so with the right $PATH and $LD_LIBRARY_PATH setup you are able to run different wine versions on your computer, all in their own bottle/capsule.
Lutris makes use of that concept and offers different "runners" ... different wine builds for certain purposes.
New Linux gamers want to try Lutris anyways at one point^^

Then is there the magic WINEPREFIX, what is default at ~/.wine (/home/you/.wine).
I think your problem is the prefix, because if you want to use 32bit software, you need a 32bit wine prefix to let winecfg place the 32bit Windows files into.
Your wine is a WoW64 build, that is both, 32 and 64 bit but will create a 64bit prefix by default if you dont set the WINEARCH variable with

Code: Select all

export WINEARCH=win32
before you start winecfg.
So you can either delete the existing wineprefix and let wine create a new one, or you create a new one by exporting the propriate bash enviroment variable like

Code: Select all

export WINEPREFIX /home/you/games/gtasa
Just enter that in a bash and then do winecfg and see wine creating the prefix on your harddisk.

But thats still not all ...
You want to make use of winetricks (, a famous script to let you install a lot Windows components like fonts, directx and so on.
Lutris has all that automated, so you really wanna try it

Manually its like
- make prefix

Code: Select all

export WINEARCH=win32
export WINEPREFIX=~/your/path
- install corefonts and dxvk (or d9vk or just directx9 for dx9 games)

Code: Select all

winetricks corefonts dxvk
- install game

Code: Select all

wine yourgame_installer.exe
- make a startscript with the exports and thelike, and give it an icon for your menu

Good luck^^
