    Trouble installing Wine

    64bit Lubuntu 19.10 currently, but quite close to buying a new HDD and installing 20.04 so if there's a likelihood of a resolution just by upgrading, maybe not worth spending too much trouble over..

    I was hoping to use Crucial's website to checkout my RAM.

    Their scanner involves downloading an executable and running it on your system to determine your memory papameters.

    They only provide a Windows executable as far as I can see.

    So I thought, okay, I'll try Wine.

    I found it in the Muon package manager under 'wine', and went ahead and marked it for installation and applied changes.

    Couldn't see a shortcut in the system menu, so I tried going into a terminal

    Code:
    me@me-pc:~$ wine
    it looks like wine32 is missing, you should install it.
    as root, please execute "apt-get install wine32"
    Usage: wine PROGRAM [ARGUMENTS...]   Run the specified program
           wine --help                   Display this help and exit
           wine --version                Output version information and exit
    me@me-pc:~$ sudo apt-get install wine32
    [sudo] password for me: 
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    Package wine32 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    However the following packages replace it:
      libwine
    
    E: Package 'wine32' has no installation candidate
    me@me-pc:~$ wine32
    wine32: command not found
    me@me-pc:~$ wine64
    Usage: wine PROGRAM [ARGUMENTS...]   Run the specified program
           wine --help                   Display this help and exit
           wine --version                Output version information and exit
    me@me-pc:~$ ls
    crucial.exe  Desktop  Documents  Downloads  Music  notepad.exe  Pictures  Public  Templates  thunderbird  Videos
    me@me-pc:~$ wine64 crucial.exe
    it looks like wine32 is missing, you should install it.
    as root, please execute "apt-get install wine32"
    wine: Bad EXE format for Z:\home\me\crucial.exe.
    me@me-pc:~$ wine64 notepad.exe
    it looks like wine32 is missing, you should install it.
    as root, please execute "apt-get install wine32"
    wine: Bad EXE format for Z:\home\me\notepad.exe.
    me@me-pc:~$ man -k wine64
    wine64-stable (1)    - run Windows programs on Unix
    me@me-pc:~$ man wine64
    me@me-pc:~$
    not quite sure where I'm going wrong.. tried a copy of windows xp's 'notepad.exe' besides the crucial.exe scanner but that seemed to fail as well..

    Grateful for any suggestions, tia

    https://packages.ubuntu.com/eoan/wine

    It's in the universe repository. Make sure you have that enabled. Make sure you check the WINE AppDb for compatibility

    Re: Trouble installing Wine

    Thanks, I ran

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository main
    sudo add-apt-repository universe
    sudo add-apt-repository multiverse
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    sudo apt-get install wine32
    .. and that got Wine working fine.

    notepad.exe pulled out from Windows XP works fine.

    crucial.exe gives me this..

    Code:
    me@me-pc:~$ wine crucial.exe
    0009:err:ole:CoGetClassObject class {4590f811-1d3a-11d0-891f-00aa004b2e24} not registered
    0009:err:ole:CoGetClassObject no class object {4590f811-1d3a-11d0-891f-00aa004b2e24} could be created for context 0x1
    wine: Unhandled privileged instruction at address 0x46145c (thread 002e), starting debugger...
    (long wait................)
    me@me-pc:~$
    so I guess whatever way Crucial have programmed their scanner, it just isn't supported by Wine.

    It's available at https://www.crucial.com/ - it's a utility for scanning your system and reporting it's RAM suitability parameters to assist memory purchasing decisions. I'll find another way to do that; it just had the effect of diverting me into setting up Wine. Wine itself works ok now, it runs notepad.exe just fine.

    Quite obvious why it doesn't work.

    If you run:
    Code:
    sudo lshw | less
    It should show you the system specs and you can buy RAM based on that. If the system has a make and model then use that.

    And you can check the online database at their website with the brand/model.

    Thanks folks. Sorry if it's a dim question but I'll bite, why doesn't it work?
