    Lightbulb HOWTO: Latest official wine

    Hi.
    This guide is for all those folks that want to install Wine the easy way and Maintain for the newest version.
    This is taken from http://winehq.org/site/download-deb WinwHQ's own guide.

    At first add the Wine GPG key
    Code:
    wget -q http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/387EE263.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -
    Then it's time to add a source to your apt. It's done very easily by a single command

    For Ubuntu Feisty (7.04):
    Code:
    sudo wget http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/sources.list.d/feisty.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/winehq.list
    For Ubuntu Edgy (6.10):
    Code:
    sudo wget http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/sources.list.d/edgy.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/winehq.list
    For Ubuntu Dapper (6.06):
    Code:
    sudo wget http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/sources.list.d/dapper.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/winehq.list
    Then update your apt and install
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install wine
    64-bit Users:

    Packages for the 64 bit version of Ubuntu Feisty (7.04) are now available, however for users of Debian and older Ubuntus the entries above are for i386 users only. Attempting to use these repositories with a different architecture (eg amd64), will result in 404 errors as APT will be looking for files not in the repository.

    If you are using an older 64 bit distribution and would still like a working Wine package, there is a relatively easy hack that can be used to install the 32-bit package into the 64-bit distribution and have it function normally. See this page on the Wine wiki for more details.

    Update. I'm back here and have just edited it to be exactly the same as on the WineHQ.

    Re: HOWTO: Install latest official wine.

    FINNALLY A GUIDE THAT WORKS FOR ME!!!!

    ive been trying for weeks to install wine with many failed attempts....
    this guide seems to work (i say seems only because it allowed me to install AOE2, and its still installing. I dont know if it will run or not)

    I feel really stupid now...that guide seems so simple

    UPDATE: well...it completely downloaded age of empires....but now i have no clue where the exe file is....
    but when it was downloaded, and it asked me if i wanted to play the game, i said "yes" and it gave me this huge error (i meen like 100-200 lines long or sumtin like that)
    meh....ill try winetools

    Re: HOWTO: Install latest official wine.

    I don't think winetools works very well with the latest wine snapshot.

    I used sidenet for my wine configuration.
    http://sidenet.ddo.jp/winetips/config.html

    Sidestep worked great for me, but all I use wine for is IE (when some idiot-site requires it), and for MS Freecell.

    Re: HOWTO: Install latest official wine.

    I sure couldn't get it to work. I followed the instructions at http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showpost...81&postcount=4

    rmack@ubuntu:~/temp/winetools$ sudo sh install.sh
    Installing WineTools to /usr/local/winetools...
    Installing translations...
    install.sh: line 22: msgfmt: command not found
    Installed translations for de_DE@euro to /usr/local/share/locale/de_DE@euro/LC_MESSAGES/wt2.mo
    install.sh: line 22: msgfmt: command not found
    Installed translations for es to /usr/local/share/locale/es/LC_MESSAGES/wt2.mo
    Start WineTools as *normal* user with "wt2". Don't use as root!
    rmack@ubuntu:~/temp/winetools$

    NOTHING ! Just error messages...

    Now to try wt2:

    rmack@ubuntu:~/temp/winetools$ wt2
    found gettext in path
    Browser is /usr/bin/firefox.
    no suitable Wine directory found...
    /usr/local/winetools/Xdialog: error while loading shared libraries: libgtk-1.2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    Wine 0
    wine is executed as wine
    Parameters are --noexit
    Wine is not configured yet!
    /usr/local/winetools/Xdialog: error while loading shared libraries: libgtk-1.2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    Calls to wine are executed as wine.
    Config is /home/rmack/.wine/winetools.log.
    CDROM is .
    /usr/local/winetools/Xdialog: error while loading shared libraries: libgtk-1.2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    /usr/local/winetools/Xdialog: error while loading shared libraries: libgtk-1.2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    rmack@ubuntu:~/temp/winetools$

    NOTHING! Just more error messages!
    PLEASE do not offer assistance unless you know the answer to be reasonably correct. A few mis-typed chars can break an install and drop-kick the user back into the Stone Age for hours. We can make ubuntu stronger by making our forum answers as complete and definitive as possible, so that others may confidently refer to them.

    Re: HOWTO: Install latest official wine.

    You need the GTK1.2 libraries, which are not default in Ubuntu's install.. lemme see here..

    Ah yes. The package names are:

    Code:
    libgtk1.2
    libgtk1.2-dev
    libgtk1.2-common
    Should work now. **I think**.

    Lightbulb Re: HOWTO: Install latest official wine.

    Hi

    I've a problem! I've been using wine's old version, but yesterday I made the upgrade and Internet Explorer now fails to open, or better it doesn't do anything at all.. so I removed Wine and reinstalled (reading this topic and the one related to WineTools) and all went fine.. BUT when I try to download Internet Explorer from Microsoft site I get a funny message:
    Setup was unable to download the required components. Please make sure you are connected to the Internet, or try to run Setup again later.


    And I'm receiving this message since yesterday, is anybody experiencing the same problem? Any ideas or workaround solution?

    Thanks in advance

    note: this is my first post here, I hope is the right place
