    How to set-up cyrillic in wine??

    Dear All,
    I have a problem running applications with Russian interface in wine. I've searched a lot, but didn't find any comprehensive instructions of configuring wine for non-english programs. I'm a bit surprised with this, because this problem should affect anybody running programs with non-latin non-unicode interface.

    The problem is the following. When I'm running any program with Russian interface, all Cyrillic characters are displayed as "?????". All user input in Russian is also displayed as "????". At the same time if I'm typing in Russian in the text fields in winecfg, the characters are displayed with no problems, so the fonts are there. Gnome menu entries added by the installer of this program also contain funny symbols, but work correctly.
    Such problem also exists in Windows itself. There I have to chose Russian as the language for non-unicode programs in the Control Panel to see cyrillic in the interface. However, I've no idea how to emulate this in wine.

    I'm running Ubuntu 7.10 and wine 0.9.46. Russian works perfectly in all native linux applications.

    Any help will be deeply appreciated!

    add this to your EXE commands line

    LANG=ru_RU.UTF-8 wine WoW.exe

    I'm not a necro, just solved this few minutes ago for my WoW.

    Try copying TrueType fonts like Arial, Tahoma, Verdana etc. to the Windows/Fonts directory on your wine C drive. Maybe you won't need to set LANG after that.

    Re: How to set-up cyrillic in wine??

    Absolute beginner here. I have a problem trying to run a windows application in Bulgarian. It works fine if i set the entire ubuntu in Bulgarian, but I'd prefer to have it in English... Hate to give windows as an example but this resembles the function in windows control panel named language for non-unicode programs. I have an english XP and the mentioned software works fine only if it's setup like this:


    If it's not I get question marks all over the place. Same as my current attempt with wine and ubuntu. So the question is - where do I set up this in ubuntu?

    thanks to temcat, just added the LANG=bg_BG.UTF-8 and the path to the exe file in the command to run on click field. That fixed the problem

    Dear members! I try a solution by Temcat and obtain very strange behavior. I use windows version of DraftSight CAD program because of no 64-bit Linux one.
    Used Wine 1.4 @ Ubuntu 11.04 x64

    Before a solution I have English interface. Files named in Cyrillic appears in list of recent files as spaces. I type Cyrillic text in text edit dialogue blindly because of replacing all characters as spaces. In the drawing this text appears very good.
    I have msttfcorefonts and ISOCPEUR TTF Font installed.

    After a solution

    ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Dassault Systemes/DraftSight/bin$ LANG=ru_RU.UTF-8 wine draftsight.exe

    The interface is Russian but there is no possibility to type any Cyrillic character - the keyboard uses Latin in any language mode. Many English keys produces no character. Typing dtext produces ext. I see the same result in Russian Ubuntu interface.

    What's wrong
    Many thanks for assistance!

    I have foobar2000 running under Ubuntu 12.04 LTS in wine. I have some Russian and Ukrainian albums encoded as FLAC/CUE sheets. However, the Cyrillic letters only show up as Latin letters with diacritic marks. I've tried the LANG=ru_RU.utf-8 but it doesn't work. I have Wine 1.4.1. I also have some Russian and Bulgarian albums encoded as separate FLAC and MP3 files and they show up as Cyrillic. Sometimes, the sound is very choppy and sped up, and sometimes music files won't play at all. It also doesn't recognise the files on my external hard drive even though the Ubuntu file explorer recognises them just fine.
