    Hi to all ,
    i'm new in forum and actually on Elementary OS too !

    Last day i did a fresh install of Freya and started customizing it,
    i need to install Wine
    searched varius information online and followed instructions but nothing...
    Totally not able to install through repository...
    neither through software center
    I think it's dependencies problem that can't be solved.
    Can you please help me?

    Hi Mr. Brown

    I just immediately installed wine 1.7.x (latest 1.7 from PPA) on a new elementary 0.3.1 installation yesterday, i cannot reproduce your problem there.
    Just try to repair the installation and install through PPA:

    sudo apt-get purge wine*
    sudo apt-get -f install
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
    sudo apt-get install wine1.7

    success :)?

    Hi!! I'm going to full reinstall Freya and try again ^^
    Should I install some drivers like video card one? Or nothing at all?

    Thank you so much for reply <3

    Hm, if you aren't playing games or when you don't experience any graphic problems, the proprietary driver makes nothing better :)

    Only for (Steam) gamers it's necessary to install the proprietary AMD or NVIDIA drivers. Are you a gamer?

    Hi guys, thank you all for help.
    A fresh install of freya seemed to work and i could install wine.
    All works good, but that's a little problem and it's about framerate in game.
    I think it's a sort of limitation in this "emulation" and driver too.
    I'm having frame drop during game (league of legend), i've installed nvidia latest driver.

    Hi Mr Brown,

    this could be interesting for you: https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=19141
    Especially in the middle of its content somebody write:

    As with every DirectX game running under wine, shadows are a huge factor at decreasing FPS. Disabling shadows or decreasing their quality is a good way to gain lots of FPS.
    Maybe that helps a little bit?
