I used to be able to successfully play Pocket Tanks and Commandos on my Fedora 20 64bit system using WINE. Few days ago I finally got time to install NVIDIA Driver. After that, WINE is now not working. Whenever I start any application I get following error

[10:09] Abhinav@localhost Pocket Tanks Deluxe $ wine pockettanks.exe 
err:winediag:xrandr12_init_modes Broken NVIDIA RandR detected, falling back to RandR 1.0. Please consider using the Nouveau driver instead.

Without NVIDIA driver, The Gnome-Shell used to flicker while animating. So I would prefer to keep the driver installed. I dont understand why it is not working correctly after graphic driver installation? Propriety driver was suppose to perform better than Nouveau driver, isn't it?

  • Have you checked what the message suggest ? Is the 32bit version of the proprietary driver also installed ? – Leiaz Apr 27 '14 at 12:18

I believe you might be able to resolve by deleting .wine dir in /home.


  • Still Not working,Now It Reconfigured the wine and recreated .wine folder. After that, Error Message is the same as above. – Abhinav Kulshreshtha Apr 27 '14 at 5:48

only you needs winetricks and:

winetricks orm=backbuffer glsl=disable

On nvidia closed driver offcourse.

  • Could you explain this more clearly? To start with, what is winetricks? – Kenster Aug 17 '14 at 14:56

Winetricks seems to remedy the problem to execute the command:

winetricks orm=backbuffer glsl=disable

I don't know what exactly is meant by:

On nvidia closed driver offcourse.

  • He means the proprietary NVIDIA graphics card driver. There is also an open-source driver, Nouveau. – ram4nd Mar 8 '17 at 8:08
