How to install Facebook Gameroom on WINE?

Facebook Gameroom is a Windows app for games that can be downloaded from:

I have tried to install it with Ubuntu 18.04 default Wine (1.6) and also with Winehq from upstream (

I have installed and tested dotnet 45, 46 and 461 with winetricks.

The installer got stuck with a message that says “Connecting”.

Perhaps it is relevant to tell I am using Nvidia proprietary driver.

Can’t execute wine runas

I’m needing to run an .exe with normal user privileges (not as administrator). Wine by default runs as superuser, so the workaround is executing C://system32/runas.exe with the privileges provided for executing the program.

$ wine runas
wine: cannot find L”C:\windows\system32\runas.exe”


$ ls .wine/drive_c/windows/system32/runas.exe
.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/runas.exe Launcher Completely White (Wine)

I installed the launcher following these instructions:

But after logging in, the entire window is white. There is also a little secondary window showing I don’t recall from previous installations.

I found an older question about this here complete white screen

which I followed. But sadly that didn’t seem to help at all. Everything looks exactly as before. Curiously the log-in screen looks perfectly fine, as did the actual installation progress.

WINE Install Repo PPA failure disco

I get this when trying to install WINE repo for my disco 19.04:

Err:12 disco Release
404 Not Found [IP: 80]

E: The repository ‘ disco Release’ does not have a Release file. N: Updating from such a repository can’t be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default. N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.

Wine still sort of installs but I have trouble understanding what this problem means for me. The goal is to install wine and play on linux so I can play all, or most, of my Steam games.

Why does installing wine (for example) require removing 2GB of good packages?

I have a situation where:

sudo apt-get install winetricks 

Results in:

 The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:      aglfn apturl apturl-common asymptote-doc biber ca-certificates-java catdoc cdparanoia cdrskin cmake-data context      ...  Use 'sudo apt autoremove' to remove them.  The following additional packages will be installed:      fonts-wine libwine-development wine-development wine64-development  Suggested packages:      ttf-mscorefonts-installer winbind playonlinux wine-binfmt dosbox libwine-gecko-2.47 wine64-development-preloader aria2 tor  Recommended packages:      libcapi20-3 libodbc1 libosmesa6 wine32-development  The following packages will be REMOVED      appmenu-qt asymptote cdrdao chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra clang clang-6.0 cmake cmake-qt-gui compiz compiz-gnome dvd+rw-tools      eog evince firefox g++-5 g++-5-multilib g++-9 gcc-5 gcc-5-multilib gcc-9 gcj-5-jre-lib gfortran-5 gnome-sudoku      ...  After this operation, 2,032 MB disk space will be freed.  Do you want to continue? [Y/n] 

Why? I don’t understand why installing winetricks would possibly cause g++-9 and spotify-client (and 2GB of utterly essential applications) to be deleted. Can I not use these packages simultaneously?

EDIT: It has even deleted my ubuntu-desktop and nautilus

I gained access to wine via

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/pp 

I am on 18.04

Is there a way to copy a Windows program from an external HDD into WINE?

I am running Windows 10 on an external HDD. I only use Windows for one program for work, otherwise, I use Ubuntu 19.04 (Dingo). Is there a way to move or copy this program from my Windows HDD into WINE?

This program was installed by the IT dept at my client’s office, so I don’t have access to the installation media. None of them know Ubuntu (or any other Linux distro), so it’ll be easier if I don’t have to involve them.

I want to be able to format the external HDD to use as just a drive instead of reserving it for just one program.

Missing network functionality on Clip Studio Paint (Wine)

I use Clip Studio Paint through Wine 4.15 and Playonlinux on an Ubuntu 19.04 machine.

And while it works great locally, there are some features that require network access that just plain don’t work, such as login in, the assets repository or auto coloring functions.

Launching it just leaves the part that should have web content blank, but it doesn’t show an error saying it is offline (like it does when I do not have internet)

I don’t know if I’m missing a dependency or if there is something else I need to configure. Link to the pastebin with the debug log:
