How to install santa claus in trouble on ubuntu/linux?


I tried to download .exe from three different source, and install it via “play on linux” software, who creates automatically for u wine and other things… but doesn’t work


Play on Linux should have an installer for it if you can use play on linux. Otherwise Wine is your friend. When using wine make sure you use windows XP and not some crazy 7 or 8 compatibility mode. You will double click the installer and wine should go to work allowing a virtual windows installation.


here i bumped soon on this site and translate to english, they talk about 1.2.1 wine for running game

Can u tell me how to install that wine, and set up thing?


in terminal

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wine -y wine1.2

Then double click your exe file Let me know how it goes

sudo apt-get install wine -y wine1.2

Package wine1.2 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
However the following packages replace it:
  wine1.8:i386 wine1.8 wine1.6:i386 wine1.6

E: Package 'wine1.2' has no installation candidate



sudo apt-get install wine

How then to install game from wine? Do i type in therminal winetricks?


You shouldn’t have to. Just double click the exe


Crash at start as like in play on linux enviroment


What is the text of the crash?


i can’t see cause resolution breaks when start the game, it is like 60% of full width ( i get window with border left-right ), i see that crash error for 0.1s and then screen go crazy, then i use alt+f4 to stop it and via therminal log out, to get reset resolution and whole thing


you need to run

winetricks d3dxof
winetricks quartz devenum

Then run the game. It works on mine now


Works, but resolution is badly bad


Checking “emulate a virtual desktop”, start to work
