How To install E-Sword on Ubuntu 12.04.
I have searched for weeks off and on to find a simple to follow walk-through on how to install E-Sword 10.1 with Wine1.5 onto Ubuntu 12.04.
I am appealing to someone to show me where such a walkthrough exists, or could someone write one based on the instruction I have found below. I have a fresh install of UbuntuCe 12.04, fully updated through terminal and synaptic, and the lastest Wine 1.5 and Winetricks. I have played with it and with the instructions and can't get it to do anything as it requires the learning of a computer script language and use of the wine interface, neither of which are intuitive, but promise to do a good job.
on winehq and biblesupport.com, they mention the following:
"this is what I do before installing e-sword. These instructions are for Kubuntu, but should work for other Ubuntu variations.
Set oleaut32 to builtin in winecfg
In winetricks install
Once these are installed you can install E-sword and it should work.
* To install msxml3 winetricks will open an MS download site where you can get the file. Once downloaded put it in: home/user-name/.cache/winetricks/msxml3
To find the .cache type ctl-h while in your home dir to show the hidden files. You my have to reselect the files to have winetricks install them"
I need really simple steps explained. I know how to open and use terminal, and open directory from the home folder, but I do not know many commands. what are the steps broken down? I believe there are hundreds of people like me wanting to use this program, but needing help.
