    Unhappy Wine install to 12.04 wants to remove Google-Earth and some...

    Does anyone know why, when I try to install Wine, I get the following:
    To be removed:
    alien
    debhelper
    gettext
    google-earth-stable
    intltool-debian
    lsb-core
    po-debconf

    I have just installed 12.04, and spent some time installing Google Earth, Sun Java 1.7, Netbeans 7.

    Please can anyone tell me why wine has an issue with these...

    Release 12.04 (precise) 64-bit
    Kernel Linux 3.2.0-24-generic
    GNOME 3.4.1
    Wine 1.4-0ubuntu4

    Thanks

    Wine shouldn't be doing that, it's probably the 12.04 upgrade doing it (those look like some leftover post-upgrade removals). The Google Earth one is a little odd; did you install it via a repo or did you download and manually install from a .deb file?

    No I downloaded Google Earth, could not get it via the repos.

    It is not GE I am worried about, I can re-install. It is the other stuff. I don't know what most of it is.

    I had some issued installing 12.04 so I think my local app db may by corrupt. Is there a db rebuild option?

    Should I just go for it?

    I have the same problem and my 12.04 is a fresh install.

    I've tried to find out what causes the removal and I think it has something to do with gettext, but I'm not sure. And I have no idea how to fix it...but maybe someone else can help.

    I think it's a dependency-bug...

    Just discovered this one for myself too. Woops then. I'll try it directly from the WINE repo and see how I go.

    So if it is not just me, how do we get it raised up the issues list for some one to look at. I use wine lots and need it to work.....

    Or is that not how it works.

    I believe it has to do with a problem concerning ia32libs.

    It appears that you can go ahead and safely install Wine, and then re-install the packages it has removed as necessary.

    Re: Wine install to 12.04 wants to remove Google-Earth and some...

    OK so I bit the bullet.

    1) Uninstalled google-earth (see the web site for instructions)
    2) add wine ppa via synaptic (ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa) for latest wine.
    3) installed playonlinux
    4) installed Q4Wine. Seems like a nice app.
    Note wine libs at /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/wine
    There are also 32 bit wine libs at /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/wine.
    No Idea which I should use so went for the 64 bit one.

    Tried to install google-earth. Failed without lsb-core.
    Tried to install lsb-core using synaptic. Synaptic told me I had broken packages! So I used synaptic Edit-->Fix Broken Packages..

    This re-installed ALL of the packages uninstalled when I installed wine, it even tried to re-install google-earth but I ignored it and went to the command line and installed it again.

    This all seems to have worked..

    I will update this thread if I find further issues.

    Thanks for all your comments and help

    I am having the same issue. Is this a bug?

    Wine is broken from this process. I can not install anything that uses 3D graphics...

    I have tried 4 titles so far. None even try to run...

    Think I might go back to (11.10) for a while.

    This is very disapointing!
