[Wine] Couldn't Initialize OpenGL

Sorry if this is a repeat, but I was unable to find any answers that worked searching this and other forums.

I have been attempting to install a few OpenGL games, and both are coming back with the same error:


err:wgl:X11DRV_WineGL_InitOpenglInfo  couldn't initialize OpenGL, expect problems
err:d3d_caps:WineD3D_CreateFakeGLContext Can't find a suitable iPixelFormat.
err:d3d:InitAdapters Failed to get a gl context for default adapter
Direct3D9 is not available without OpenGL.

I have installed DirectX as far as I can tell... Through winetricks it shows me that d3dx9_26 through 43 are installed, as well as d3dx10 and d3dx11.

My video cards (AMD HD 6900 series) are configured to use the 32 and 64 bit driver (Version 12.3 of catalyst).  The information tab of my Catalyst Control Center states that OpenGL Version is 1.4 (2.1 (4.2.11566 Compatibility Profile Context))

I am running Linux Mint 12, 64-bit.  I have seen a lot of posts stating to make sure graphics drivers are 32 bit, and I verified that it is the same package for both for AMD cards.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!
