when installing the dotnet packages in wine, i got this error -
user@darkstar:~/.wine$ ./winetricks dotnet11
Executing w_do_call dotnet11
Executing w_do_call fontfix
Please uninstall the Samyak/Oriya font, e.g. 'sudo dpkg -r ttf-oriya-fonts', then log out and log in again. That font causes strange crashes in .net programs.
to remove the font package
# its a part of the
ttf-indic-fonts package, so we need to remove it
# there are other references to them – using a handy
sed command you can find them and then edit the file to remove.
# i ran the following commands in the
grep -nr samy . | sed 's@\(Samyak\)@@'
grep -nr oriy . | sed 's@\(Oriya\)@@'
after the oriya and samyak fonts and all mentions of them are removed, log out and log back in and you should be all set to move forward with the dotnet11 install
here is how to install and configure wine 1.3.1 from source with additional configurations for nVidia card owners.
download the source here.
open up the tarball:
tar -jvxf wine-1.3.1.tar.bz2
cd into the newly created directory:
configure and make dependencies:
./configure --with-x && make depend && make
install wine you may need to sudo this one
.wine directory in your home folder:
install winetricks for additional .dll’s:
make winetricks executable:
sudo chmod +x ./winetricks
install additional .dll’s using winetricks:
./winetricks d3dx9 droid winxp sound=alsa volnum vcrun2008 dotnet20 ie6 corefonts
now, after you have done all this, there is still more to do in order to properly configure wine:
configure the wine registry for windows gaming:
HK_CURRENT_USER/Software/Wine/ and add a new key named
Direct3D. then add the following strings and values:
|VideoDescription||NVIDIA GeForce GT 220|
you can add it manually as shown above, or, copy and paste the following to a
graphics.reg file and import it to wines registry.
"VideoDescription"="NVIDIA GeForce GT 220"
enable support for misc binaries:
/etc/rc.d/rc.modules and uncomment the following line:
then add the following to
none /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc binfmt_misc defaults 0 0
now add the following to
echo ':windows:M::MZ::/path/to/wine:' > /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc/register
echo ':windowsPE:M::PE::/path/to/wine:' > /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc/register
now reboot the machine
i already had flash and photoshop installed on a windows vm and i wanted to see how it ran using wine in slackware. (i was getting sick of the marginal delay using vnc)
1) copy adobe over to linux
Documents and SettingsAll UsersApplication DataAdobeinto
2) export the adobe registry branch from
3) install additional windows libraries using winetricks –
sh winetricks vcrun2008 msxml3 atmlib gdiplus
4) import the registry file into wines registry
i managed to get photoshop working this way and i am having difficulty with flash. i will post more once i solve the problem.
wine 1.3.0 was release 07/30/2010. you can get it here.
go here for a quick how-to on installing one from source.
the shortlog is here
a quick summary of whats new in 1.3.0:
wine 1.2-rc6 was released (awhile ago, i know). so here is a rundown of how to compile from source and install it.
download the newest source here
wine-1.2-rc6.tar.bz2 in a directory (i just put it in my user accounts home)
tar -jvxf wine-1.2-rc6.tar.bz2
cd into the newly created directory
./configure --with-x && make depend && make
after its done run
i downloaded the mysql query browser and attempted to compile from source and install. i kept running into errors for the linux version and because i have virtualbox i didnt want to fight with installing the linux version. so i downloaded the windows version of mysql query browser and then realized that my virtualbox did not have a valid key with it. so i decided to install it using wine.
.msi file i downloaded kept flagging errors when i tried to install it with wine. i do know that there are some windows
.dll's that are required in order to install
.msi's within wine….so….i downloaded the
.zip instead. (yes, i chose the easy route, i want it to work dammit!)
i unzipped the mysql
then i made a quick script to launch it
wine /home/mike/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/MySQL GUI Tools 5.0/MySQLQueryBrowser.exe
here are a couple screenshots of what i did.
so far it appears that all the functionality is working. i will be sure to post any errors i come across here.
i have tried in the past to get ventrilo working in wine and had no success. (last time i tried was several months ago)
so i tried again and below is the error message i got
well, thats it for now. i just downloaded and am going to attempt to install a wow addon studio
so i attempted to install again, got the prompt to repair/remove and chose repair. launched again and got the same error message as before. so i tried a different approach and launched vent via wine from the vent folder in the wine tree. this worked for me and vent runs flawlessly.
i am not sure what made it “just work” but i am not gonna argue. i didnt have to mess around with any windows .dlls or mess with the sys ini (which i have seen people do)
|i tried to launch wow using wine. i compiled wine from source. here is a screenshot of what happened:|
i ran wow in crossover and got 28+ fps in the world environment. inside of dalaran (the busiest major city) i was getting 10-12+ fps

i installed world of warcraft. and the burning crusade expansion with no problems. i had to manually mount the dvd by using
sudo mount -t udf -o ro,unhide /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom0
when i went to install the wrath of the lich king expansion, it kept stopping and exiting crossover. with a little research i found that wotlk can be picky. so i manually mounted the dvd with another parameter added to the mount command.
sudo mount -t udf -o ro,unhide,uid=1000 /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom0
