Hello, my problem is installing any games as i said in topic.My OS is Ubuntu 14.04 LTS...

Now i will tell you what i do and what happens...First i open PlayOnLinux then i click on game i want to install( Mount&Blade Warband or Skyrim it doesn't matter both of them the same...) then it begins to installation progress then i choose the setup file which on my computer(and both of them is working properly) then i click to Next button it says "Please wait..." and i'm waiting but nothing happens. It worked on Kali Linux properly so i know what should have to be. Normally in this progress it has to open setup file but it opens a program named "Wine Windows Program Loader" (Actually it isn't open properly either just logo on the task bar that's it) and nothing happens after that i waited so long but it hasn't change.

My log file is:


PlayOnLinux debbuging tool (v4.2.2)


Debugging: Mount and Blade : Warband

Warning. This is a PlayOnLinux script logfile. It does not contains everything that happened in your program virtual drive (wineprefix)

Please do not use this logfile on winehq forum, this logfile is not interesting for wine debugging.

Are you playing both Mount&Blade and Skyrim through Steam?  I know Skyrim requires Steam, so that would be a "Yes"
Does Steam install and get to a login screen?
Can You login and download these games?

Make sure you have 32-bit "multi-arch" installed and make sure you have proprietary drivers installed for your video card/chip, like:  Intel, Nvidia, AMD

No Skyrim requires Steam "yes" but there is the problem Steam isn't install either... Mount&Blade Warband is internet download version from taleworlds. So problem is installers( Any of the setups) don't work my distro is Ubuntu 14.04 before that i used Kali Linux there wasn't any problem but i begin to use Ubuntu problems don't let me go.

And when i have multi-arch with "sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386" and after that "sudo apt-get update" and after that "apt-get upgrade" it says:

These packages are automaticly installed and no need them so remove them...Packages are:

kde-l10n-engb kde-l10n-tr linux-image-generic

I use GNOME version of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS but i don't want remove like kde or any wrong files so there is a road block either what can i do?


EDIT= Oh, i forgot to mention that. My graphic card is NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M with Intel but i use Additional Drivers of Ubuntu for NVIDIA it's:

NVIDIA binary driver-version 331.38 to nvidia-331.(owned,tested)

I looked to NVIDIA web site it says it's the lastest driver (331.38) for my graphic card. And i don't think it's a hardware problem i think it's a software problem because like i said i played that games on Kali Linux before i install Ubuntu.

You shouldn't have to remove anything.
Ubuntu got rid of a really easy package "ia32-libs" back in Ubuntu 13.10
So now you can't install all of them at once.  I'm not sure what to do about those libraries, but its important because most games are only 32-bit compatible.

You may have to install them with Terminal:
dpkg --add-architecture i386

apt-get update

There is a How-To for Debian related distros here:  32-bit Libraries

Also, there are step-by-step guides for both of those games here:  GamersOnLinux

OK. I will install ia32-libs with this solution:

sudo -i
cd /etc/apt/sources.list.d
echo "deb raring main restricted universe multiverse" >ia32-libs-raring.list
apt-get update
apt-get install ia32-libs

I hope it works properly...

booman Thursday 10 July 2014 at 1:10

How did it go?
Can you run any games now?

If you want to try a quick one, just download and install Drakensang Online

Its only a 14 MB download and installs in seconds.

Nope. It didn't work...

Still setup doesn't work...I don't know why it's doing that:( :(


I Uninstall Ubuntu and re-install again now it's work...Thanks for effort anyway... :) :)

One way to see if games will run at all is to install some native Linux games and play them.
Skyrim and M&B are more difficult to setup.

Try using the "Software Installer" and searching for games like:

  • 0A.D.
  • Alien Arena
  • Tremulous
  • Armagetron
  • Neverball
  • Secret Maryo Chronicles
