Hhow can I restore Wine shortcuts?
hello, anybody here
I'm having trouble with WINE. I'm trying to install Star Wars: Empire at War, which has two CDs. The first CD started up and ran perfectly, but when it came time for the second CD, I put it in, but WINE couldn't find it. Any help?
i tried installing windows office and it didnt work, now i have all these entries for microsoft office .......(mui) that im not able to remove
a command. enter "wine eject" in your terminal
I realize it's not going to be the cream of the crop, but what would you recommend for like a $20 wine to go with beef or chicken for people who actually like/drink wine? Also I want to get like ~4 bottles, do I get the same wine for all bottles, or do I mix it up for every one?
im having troubles with microsoft office,can anybody help
TomInVegas: Bad news this is winehq its about the software called wine not the drinking stuff.
must be the topic
I guess you have already been to the appdb? darko3d

oiaohm: im installing the latest version of wine now, but guna still need some help, and yeah been there
oiaohm, I knew that
figured there'd be some overlap
i was wondering if there is a way to change the default internet timeout under wine 1.1.42
ok this is started to get rediculous, no matter what i do i can get wine to uninstall completly
sudo apt-get autoremove --purge wine <-doesnt remove everything? how do i do it
You left ~/,wine behind. darko3d
Hey all how do i set my default bottle to be windows xp?
i think that's crossover, not wine :/
they have their own support system
OK, well when I run wine setup.exe i get "using default bottle (win98)"
i have a crossover installed
that would do it, hehe
by default wine creates a single directory for all programs, ~/.wine
that's okay, I just know from past experience anyone who asks about crossover gets directed to their own support forum or email
They have there own support IRC has well node357
oh, didn't know that. thanks oiaohm
There is enough differences between crossover and wine to make supporting other ones bad news.
Yes they share common code.
i like the fact they donate to Wine
If crossover staff happen to be in here they redirect person to the crossover channel and sort out the persons problem there.
If I pay codeweavers.com to get a program to work under whine 100% will it benifit only me or everyone who has the program?.
hi. off topic, forgive me, but maybe someone would know what I can do with a file that the file command says is "Little-endian UTF-16 Unicode English text, with CRLF, CR line terminators"? Basically a cat -v shows a bunch of odd characters in between all the normal characters. dos2unix doesn't help.
the file was produced by a windows app running under wine by the way.
open it in something that understands utf16
In Ubuntu Lucid I have in every program with a print dialog the "Print to File" printer, but Notepad, for example, complains that there is no printer installed. Shall I file a bug?
dash9, do you have it configured in cups?
e.g., when you go to system/administration/printing, do you see a device there for cups-pdf?
if not, then wine won't see it
do sudo apt-get install cups-pdf, add the device in cups, then try notepad again
i'm looking for sb who tried running wine apps via LTSP terminal. i'm trying it right now, but both have some strange bug...
... when I try to run some apps client runs out of ram... - currently I'm running UniPaas 1.9 enviroemnt
i'm looking for sb who tried running wine apps via LTSP terminal. i'm trying it right now, but both have some strange bug...
soor for duplicates - haven;t use irc for a long time ;)
maslak: wine is very opengl dependant.
For running lots of applications.
LTSP really does not do that well.
oiaohm: when I try to do the same locally, or via VNC it works fine...
gday, does Doer ever appear on this channel?
Locally does not have a problem. Type of vnc is critical.
on windows XP or 7, does anyone know a way to trace which .dll's are used by a perticular app?
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653.aspx And there are a few other tools as well in sysinterals. Gimpexe
maslak: VNC does not have applications waiting around for events like X11 over network can either.
oiaohm: is there any way to tell wine which display it has to use, or do sth with opengl so it stops hanging up my thin clients... for some testing scenarios I run identical dell machines as clients - when I use one with less than 512MB ram - will hangup session, when I use one with pciex graphics based on nvidia - and 1GB ram wirks fine, when I use intel based graphics and 1Gb ram - I see some graphics artefacts - lines, grids, and messed up symbols...
what Can I do to run wine totally local on server, and just to display on client - sorry for my english - haven't use it for ages...
Hi. I'm having problems with wine. I'm running CM 01/02 and I cannot see the cursor on my game window. The cursor does work, I can click at things but obviously I should also see the cursor to be able to play.
and I'm running ubuntu 10.04
when I try and run an exe from wine the timer symbol shows for a few seconds and then stops, the program doesn't start, and doesn't complain. Is there a way to try and run the app in the console via "wine appname.exe", and a special switch, to show processes the program is actually looking for - maybe the software is searching dll's it requires etc. If I can see what it is searching for then i could work out why it won't actually start.
maslak, i havnt been following your full convo. but is the server and the thin client both running X11?
maslak, if they are, you could try forwarding X over ssh
that would do exactly what ur wanting. it wont forward the whole X session, just the gui for the X app that is run on the server
when a program won't start does wine have a log file?
all output is made to the stdout/stderr
you should read everything in your terminal
lodtank: so if "wine program.exe" is typed in terminal, where and how do I see the output? I don't see anything when I do that
Gimpexe : r u online ?
i've sent u priv msg
Firstgear: by default wine reports only errors, warnings and not implemented conditions
Firstgear: a program terminating and total absence of output usually means copy protection or antidebugging tricks
the software I was trying to install was text to speech sapi software
How do I force a link, or bash script to execute wine using the programs local directory as default? For ex the script ONLY works if I execute it from inside the directory, no link or shortcut will work because the program can't find its dlls etc.
Where does wine output its error log?
Phoebus: in a script you can add a "cd" command, in a link depends on your launcher software - it may have a "Start Path" or "Work Path" or "Startup Directory"
http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=14958 It's supposed to have gold status but I can't even get it to read the exe
Firstgear: sorry, unable to help, sounds like Chinese to me
there is an english version
p1l0t: to the console if you start from one. graphical launchers usually don't provide a console
killall-9 oh well I get an "encountered serious error" message just before Surfcam crashes using wine (Surfcam is a CAD/CAM program that runs on XP or later)
CAD/CAM = Computer Aided Drafting/Maching
To the console where it was run p1l0t the error log appears.
p1l0t: open a console (terminal emulator), go to that directory, start wine programname.exe
Wine does not create error log by nature. If you want a error log file. wine programname.exe 2>error.log
Thanks both of you, I will try that
If wine created a error log by nature you could watch you Harddrive space go by by.
got it to work selected windows 2000
Firstgear: i see there's a version having "xp" in the exe name but i have no idea what's written there ;-)
I recommend it for anybody who wants free tts sapi 5 because it works perfect
http://pastebin.com/Ah7zzT4f <-- These are the errors I get when I try to run Surfcam in wine
p1l0t: does it have an appdb entry?
p1l0t: it looks like: 1. it scans for a parallel port dongle 2. uses mixed mode .NET assemblies
I don't think it has a appdb entry, searched and got 0 results
p1l0t: looking at its requirements and the list of modules in memory it doesn't look like an easy fix
"$ wine app.exe"?
p1l0t: how did you install it? did it try to install some .net ?
install the Windows version of Mono to run .NET executables
killall-9 I ran the normal install program, I think it may have tried some .NET if I remember correctly
looks like it failed: fixme:mscoree:_CorDllMain (0x7c4c0000, 1, (nil)): stub
you can try to install .net by winetricks but you need to know which version
How do I figure out which version?
no idea - if the installer is separate on the install media you may try to run it
killall-9 that's genious let me check
Would this be Microsoft Data Access Drivers?
I spelled genius wrong lol
the .net installers are like dotnetfx.exe
I don't see anything like that, I will just have to download the .net just not sure what version to use
The wine version is 1.1.42 but is it that which matters or what Surfcam needs?
3.0 seems to be the only decent version even close to my wine version anyway
better use winetricks as it makes some small required changes or installs prerequisites
for example dotnet30 requires dotnet20 because of how the 3.0 installer works
Yeah it just told me its not marked as an exeutable
Is winetricks already installed or is that a seperate package?
I'm using playonlinux and trying to use photoshop cs4. Everything runs good except the text tool. How can I fix this?
it crashes when I try to use the text tool
anyone know how to fix this?
darkkrai, from appdb:"I downloaded'atmlib.dll' from a dll download website and put it in '~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32'. This fixed the text tool bug for me."
btw playonlinux is not supported here, darkkrai
I put atmlib.dll in there as well

hello - is there any bug in wine - which limits my app window size - when I'm using 4:3 monitor and 1280x1024 resolution over an i915 graphic card (as LTSP terminal) i cannot see whole window after maximize app ...
If I want to open a bugreport with a regression (1..1.44 -> 1.2 release candiate), is there anything I have to pay attention to? Like prefixing my bugtitle with 'Regression:' ?
spm_Draget: don't put it in the title, but after you file the bug, add 'regression' as a keyword
austin_work: I'll do =)
also be sure to test in current git, if you haven't already
austin_work: I never used git before =/
$ git fetch ; git rebase origin
will retrieve the latest, then apply it
Hmm, if you give me a helping hand, I will try :P
*tries to dig for infos on how to setup the repository*
spm_Draget: wait...have you not run the regression test?
austin_work: Hmm? I just found a regression in an existing tool after updating from 44 to the latest rc
spm_Draget: okay..but before filing a bug, you need to find which change broke it
(Action) goes git for the first time, yay
you were always a git in my mind, if that helps spm_Draget
spm_Draget, You don't know how long I've followed your progress through revision control systems to wait for you to utter that phrase and to snap back with that retort
Year after year...

Hey, i got a problem running EVE Online in wine. Ist just hangs directly when launching is, spamming the following in console: fixme:d3dx:ID3DXEffectImpl_GetParameter (0x175698)->((nil), 377631): stub
