Linux Help getting GameMaker Studio trial running on Ubuntu



Hello, I've been trying to get GameMaker Studio trial working but it seems that I'm making a mistake somewhere. I downloaded the WIndows exe since it seems that that was the only option since I'm not running on a Mac. I have openSSH set up and i install Wine to run the exe but it seemed to have a fatal error upon install.

GMS2 is only meant to run on Windows PCs or Macs. It's not designed to be run within a virtual or sandboxed environment, and there is no official support for this option.


You can try add these:
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install openssh-client openssh-server libopenal1 libopenal1:i386 libncurses5-dev:i386 libbz2-1.0:i386 libstdc++6:i386 libxxf86vm1 libssl1.0.0:i386 libglu1:i386 libxrandr-dev libxrandr2:i386 zip unzip fakeroot -y
