Hmmz. Ok, I'm starting to see a pattern here I don't particularly like with the latest Wine update.

After I updated Wine to version 1.5.20 today and afterwards my perfectly working Far Cry 2 failed to start. And coincidentally also my Deus Ex: HR refused to start.
When trying to install an older game that always used to work perfectly now also failed (Mass Effect 2)

I went to check the forums and lo and behold:

This problem with the latest wine seems to happen to people across all different kind of games.

So now I see problems with Eve online: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=12427861#post12427861

Check Sim city Deluxe SE: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=12427629&postcount=95

And World of WarCraft: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=12427887&postcount=2489

So, Houston we definitely have a serious problem with the latest wine update.
So, stay away from it untill there's a solve announced.

And I especially don't like this myself since I had a gaming evening planned for now!! ](*,)

Meanwhile, if anybody knows how to reverse to the previous version 1.5.19 I'd be very interested to know.

Same problems here, almost nothing works under 1.5.20.

I just did it successfully. Presuming you are using the ubuntu-wine PPA like I am, download the following files from:

http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-wine/ppa/ubuntu/pool/main/w/wine1.5/

wine1.5-amd64_1.5.19-0ubuntu3_amd64.deb
wine1.5_1.5.19-0ubuntu3_amd64.deb
wine1.5-i386_1.5.19-0ubuntu3_i386.deb

then install all 3 at once with sudo dpkg -i

You can downgrade by going to synaptic - finding wine then going to package->force version..though whether they have 1.5.19 is another thing. If that works for you, you may also need to lock the version (in synaptic also) otherwise you'll be constantly notified that an update is available..or disable the Wine PPA.

I'm sure that Wine used to have older debs on their site, but I can't seem to see them now.

Not the first time this has happened. :(


I found the previous version in /var/cache/apt/archives

Is there a proper way to do this? Other than uninstalling & installing manually.

Force version only works when you have multiple sources I think. (older versions from the same repo are not available)

Great solution. Thanks a lot!

Succes with a mix of what your retrievings found in "var/cache/apt/archives" and the commandline pioughd mentioned.
then install all 3 at once with sudo dpkg -i

Only I found 4 files instead of 3 relating to the previous version of Wine:

wine1.5_1.5.19-0ubuntu3_amd64.deb (1.2 mb)
wine1.5-amd64_1.5.19-0ubuntu3_amd64.deb (23.0 mb)
wine1.5-i386_1.5.19-0ubuntu3_i386.deb (21,5 mb)
wine_1.5.19-0ubuntu3_amd64.deb (918 bytes)

Copy those to your desktop.
Now open up a Terminal and type:
"sudo dpkg -1" as pioughd mentioned, then select and then drag the older Wine version files on your desktop (copied from "var/cache/apt/archives") to the Terminal.

Enter Your Password

And you'll get a warning: "dpkg: warning: downgrading wine from 1.5.20-0ubuntu1 to 1.5.19-0ubuntu3"

ENTER

In the [Terminal] then type: "winecfg" to open Wine Configuration and then go to the "About"-Tab to check if the version was indeed downgraded to version 1.5.19.

I'm sure that a fix will be released soon if you're just a little bit patient. :-\"

Funny, the fubared Wine upgrade had to be released on a Saturday. ](*,)

I tried the steps above, but I don't run 64bit, and when I tried to go with the i386 packages, I got a broken package manager, and spend 45 minutes fixing that manually. I wouldn't consider the problem solved, as much as worked around :)

I'm just going to wait until the wine build gets updated and fixed. (and I'm getting a new video card this week, so not sweating it too much until then)

Until then, I'll be playing Rochard from my Humble Bundle:)

hey guys,

if a problem is not reported then no needs to wait a fix for an unknown issue.

Where are the reported bugs ?

Have you installed the wine debug package ? then ran your game with winedebug into a terminal ?

I successfully downgraded to 1.5.19, but I just wanted to comment that this doesn't actually solve the problem with 1.5.20. Now that I know that a bug report has been made, I look forward to seeing this problem being fixed.
I've been using the latest wine releases for a few years and this has been the first time I've ran into a serious problem, which required a downgrade.

A new ppa release, 1.5.20-0ubuntu2, fixes the problem. Seems to have been either a faulty patch or build.

Scared to use it now that I'm so happy my games work again under 1.5.19. ;-) But, now I know how to downgrade succesfully I'll check it out soon.

For now: Happy New Year every body! :biggrin:

*-0ubuntu2 didn't fix it for me, Deus Ex still refused to launch. But I got what I wanted, a quick way to revert, thanks to:

Now everything works as well as it should, as far as I can tell. Huge thanks!
