Install PlayOnLinux and you should be able to install the newest Wine version or check Steam and Lutris for the games you play.
Installing Software / Update/Install Wine 5.0 in Linux Lite
« Last post by buumchakalaka on February 15, 2020, 06:05:20 PM »
Hi friends, I am a complete noob about Linux and this is the first distribution I use.
I have a problem that I have no clue how to solve. I want to play some Windows games with Wine, but when I install Wine through Lite Software it installs the 3.0 version, but the most recent version of wine is 5.0, and as a result is giving me problems (It doesnt run any of the games I tried).
I'm trying to figure out how to update or install the newest version but can't figure it out.

Hope someone can give me a hand, thanks in advance!
Video Cards / Screen Shaking with NVIDIA Graphics
« Last post by mountainlover on February 15, 2020, 04:51:13 PM »

I started out with Linux Mint and my screen began shaking.  Someone suggested I use a lighter distro.  So, I uninstalled Mint and tried Puppy.  Couldn't see any videos with their web browser (Pale Moon).  I then installed Linux Lite on USB to try out.  I'm now getting that shaking screen again.  Any ideas?  I'm new to all of this and just want to keep using my machine after Windows 7 support went away - I need step-by-step information/instruction and often don't understand the snippets of information given about Linux problems that seem to be for pros, so step-by-step is best for people like me.  I did not do updates as there's not enough space on the USB, but I have a feeling it's something to do with my NVIDIA graphics.  Thanks & here's my system info:

Installing Linux Lite / Re: Peppermint on Lite live boot
« Last post by firenice03 on February 14, 2020, 07:07:53 PM »
Couple questions...
What OS(s) are currently installed on the system?
Have you DL'd peppermint to this same USB? - how are you creating the USB??..

Make sure you not using a "multi"boot USB creator. Try Etcher or Rufus..
The manual - may have added info

Doesn't hurt to try the UEFI LL version - it will also install to BIOS
- UEFI installer can install to either... BIOS only to BIOS (legacy) equipped.
Installing Linux Lite / Re: Peppermint on Lite live boot

Thank you. I'll give that a try, but that still doesn't explain the Peppermint 10 distro desktop/install shortcut.

I guess the question I should have asked: Is your computer UEFI (no ability to change the bios to legacy mode)? If so, you'll have to do what I described.

I don't understand what you're describing about Peppermint. However, it sounded like what I experienced trying to boot LL 4.8 (on a Live USB). The USB appeared in the list of bootable devices (when I pressed F12 at power on). But, when I choose it, the USB device was accessed for 5 seconds, then it was like handed itself off to the hard disk. (I was thinking there was something unusual about LL's iso format. I didn't realize it doesn't have UEFI support. That's what was doing it.).

Your experience sounds a lot like mine. I thought it was a problem with the ISO. I didn't realize Linux Lite does not support UEFI machines (it's not mentioned at the top in the system requirements, for example). What people are doing is: install a 4.2 test UEFI iso, and then immediately click the icon to system update. That brings you up to 4.8.

If you go to the page to download LL, look a little further down to see something about UEFI. You're supposed to click the UEFI logo. You'll land on a  forum post. The very first sentence links to the 4.2 image you want.

It works. It's worth doing. Linux Lite is very nice.

Thank you. I'll give that a try, but that still doesn't explain the Peppermint 10 distro desktop/install shortcut.

Oh, I tried 3.8 last night. Same thing as the others I've done thus far.

Boom. You got it. Thanks so very much! My active monitor had to be 1, though. :)
