    Cool How to: wine+winetricks+e-sword=installation

    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

    msls31
    msxml3 *
    vbrun6
    vcrun6
    wsh57

    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.

    Thankyou,
    Roger

    Example:
    What does the first step mean:
    Set oleaut32 to builtin in winecfg

    How do you do that?

    but why not simply instal bibletime, with use sword libraries ?

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install bibletime

    Are you using Ubuntu CE ? I believe bibletime is installed by default in UCE.

    Hi Guy,

    I installed Playon Linux and it seems to run e-swordreally well - such a relief! However, I get this error on start up: "PlayOnLinux cannot find 7z (from P7ZIP full).
    You should install it to use PlayOnLinux"

    I noticed also it installed Wine 1.5 during set up. I already had 1.4 installed. Should I (how can I) remove Wine 1.4? I have Synaptics but am unsure which (or even if) I should remove one of my Wine installations.

    Thanks

    David

    Roger,
    I was in the same boat you were in, not understanding what this set of instructions ment. I'm running Ubuntu 12.10, so I went to the Ubuntu Software Center and installed PlayOnLinux after I had installed Wine.

    1. After I installed POL, I opened it up and clicked "Install", then "Install a non-listed program", and next.
    2. I selected the option "Install a program in a new virtual drive", and made up a name, and clicked next, next.
    3. It asked me for an install file, so I navigated to the downloads where I had put E-sword 10.10. From there it just put me through all the prompts of installation. I created a link on the desktop and tested it, but it still didn't have the search functions, so then I
    4. Pushed "Configure" in PlayOnLinux, then on the "Install packages" tab, and found each of the packages and clicked Install: msls31, msxml3, vbrun6, vcrun6 and wsh57.
    5. Then in the "Wine" tab, I clicked "Configure Wine" and then the "Libraries" tab. In the dropdown for "New override for library" I found the thing called oleaut32, clicked it, and then clicked "Add". Then I clicked "Apply".
    6. Opening the shortcut I created on my desktop brought up E-sword and the search worked!

    I still don't know how to do all that directly in wine, but I hope this is a help to newer Ubuntu users like myself that really, really, really badly want to use E-Sword 10.10 in Ubuntu 12.10.

    For the faith of the gospel,
    Peter

    I forgot that I also installed 7zip from the Ubuntu Software Center after installing POL so that the popup message wouldn't come up again.
