Problem running a game through wine on ubuntu

Post by shreeniket987 » Fri Feb 05, 2021 12:14 am

Hello, I am trying to run a game through wine. But when I launch the game, I am getting the following error:

I suspect it is because I need Direct3D but I have no idea how to install it.
Wine version is 5.0.2, Ubuntu version is 20.04. Please help. Thank you!

Which game?
Maybe there are some tips in the AppDB.

The game is Batman Arkham Asylum. But I got it running now. Turns out DirectX did not get installed properly through winetricks so I downloaded the .exe and then it worked. Also, I needed to install Nvidia PhysX for it to work properly. Thank you for replying though.

You should consider installing steam on ubuntu: it has a lovely wine implementation called Proton, if you consider buying your games on steam store.
