I own Sims 3 for Steam, and I have steam downloaded through wine(tricks) to my PC. According to the official wineHQ it should work, but as soon as I press play on Steam... the Sims 3 launcher does not pop up. Sorry if this is in the wrong area, I am not sure where it would fall. Let me know of any clarifications I should make, I don't know what is needed to figure out the issue. I previously posted this in random software, but that did not get any responses so I've decided maybe Linux would be better.

Should point you in the right direction.

 

Also try PlayOnLinux, makes a life a little easier when trying to run native Windows apps in Wine.

Thanks... I figured out that I had to skip past the launcher, and just open up the games file straight from the folder.

I was going to suggest PlayOnLinux as well.

 

Glad you got it working! Thanks for the update!

How do I update PlayWithLinux, I tried installing league of legends... but it did not work. I am wondering if I update it, it could fix the problem. Things not the Ubuntu software installer tend to be pretty out of date.

ya WINE is a "layer" running on linux.  sometimes windows apps work, sometime they don't.  windows wants a "registry"  and DLL's for most progs.

If the current wine does not work.  Maybe fedora can help because they compile the latest wine in their OS or buy the package from codeweavers.  That is the commercial wine.
