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?
kevlarman

Tao

TomInVegas
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?
darko3d
im having troubles with microsoft office,can anybody help
oiaohm
TomInVegas: Bad news this is winehq its about the software called wine not the drinking stuff.
KenSharp
must be the topic
oiaohm
I guess you have already been to the appdb? darko3d
darko3d
oiaohm: what?
oiaohm
http://appdb.winehq.org/ << The appdb. Our master list of what works and howtos. darko3d
darko3d
oiaohm: im installing the latest version of wine now, but guna still need some help, and yeah been there
TomInVegas
oiaohm, I knew that
figured there'd be some overlap
fluffymuffins
i was wondering if there is a way to change the default internet timeout under wine 1.1.42
darko3d
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
oiaohm
You left ~/,wine behind. darko3d
lindenle
Hey all how do i set my default bottle to be windows xp?
node357
i think that's crossover, not wine :/
they have their own support system
lindenle
OK, well when I run wine setup.exe i get "using default bottle (win98)"
ah
omg ha ha
i have a crossover installed
removing it now
node357
that would do it, hehe
by default wine creates a single directory for all programs, ~/.wine
lindenle
ha sorry
node357
that's okay, I just know from past experience anyone who asks about crossover gets directed to their own support forum or email
oiaohm
They have there own support IRC has well node357
node357
oh, didn't know that. thanks oiaohm
oiaohm
There is enough differences between crossover and wine to make supporting other ones bad news.
Yes they share common code.
node357
i like the fact they donate to Wine
oiaohm
If crossover staff happen to be in here they redirect person to the crossover channel and sort out the persons problem there.
node357
ah
the_file
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?.
Mathman
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.
kevlarman
open it in something that understands utf16
dash9
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?
austin987
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
maslak
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 ;)
oiaohm
maslak: wine is very opengl dependant.
For running lots of applications.
LTSP really does not do that well.
maslak
oiaohm: when I try to do the same locally, or via VNC it works fine...
Gimpexe
gday, does Doer ever appear on this channel?
oiaohm
Locally does not have a problem. Type of vnc is critical.
Gimpexe
on windows XP or 7, does anyone know a way to trace which .dll's are used by a perticular app?
when it starts
oiaohm
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.
Gimpexe
thanks
maslak
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
Firstgear
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.
Gimpexe
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
Firstgear
when a program won't start does wine have a log file?
lodtank
all output is made to the stdout/stderr
you should read everything in your terminal
Firstgear
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
maslak
Gimpexe : r u online ?
Gimpexe
yes
maslak
i've sent u priv msg
killall-9
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
Firstgear
the software I was trying to install was text to speech sapi software
it's freeware
Phoebus
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.
p1l0t
Where does wine output its error log?
killall-9
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"
Firstgear
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
killall-9
Firstgear: sorry, unable to help, sounds like Chinese to me
Firstgear
there is an english version
killall-9
p1l0t: to the console if you start from one. graphical launchers usually don't provide a console
p1l0t
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
oiaohm
To the console where it was run p1l0t the error log appears.
With wine p1l0t
killall-9
p1l0t: open a console (terminal emulator), go to that directory, start wine programname.exe
oiaohm
Wine does not create error log by nature. If you want a error log file. wine programname.exe 2>error.log
p1l0t
Thanks both of you, I will try that
oiaohm
If wine created a error log by nature you could watch you Harddrive space go by by.
Running some programs.
Firstgear
got it to work selected windows 2000
killall-9
Firstgear: i see there's a version having "xp" in the exe name but i have no idea what's written there ;-)
Firstgear
I recommend it for anybody who wants free tts sapi 5 because it works perfect
p1l0t
http://pastebin.com/Ah7zzT4f <-- These are the errors I get when I try to run Surfcam in wine
killall-9
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
p1l0t
I don't think it has a appdb entry, searched and got 0 results
killall-9
p1l0t: looking at its requirements and the list of modules in memory it doesn't look like an easy fix
orly_owl
"$ wine app.exe"?
v.1.01
v1.0.1
killall-9
p1l0t: how did you install it? did it try to install some .net ?
orly_owl
install the Windows version of Mono to run .NET executables
23
p1l0t
killall-9 I ran the normal install program, I think it may have tried some .NET if I remember correctly
killall-9
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
p1l0t
How do I figure out which version?
killall-9
no idea - if the installer is separate on the install media you may try to run it
p1l0t
killall-9 that's genious let me check
Would this be Microsoft Data Access Drivers?
I spelled genius wrong lol
killall-9
the .net installers are like dotnetfx.exe
or NetFx20SP2_x86.exe
p1l0t
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
killall-9
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
p1l0t
Yeah it just told me its not marked as an exeutable
killall-9
sh winetricks
or chmod +x winetricks
p1l0t
Is winetricks already installed or is that a seperate package?
darkkrai
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?
frostwork
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."

darkkrai

You could probably relicense the existing license for another platform.

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:' ?
austin_work
spm_Draget: don't put it in the title, but after you file the bug, add 'regression' as a keyword
spm_Draget
austin_work: I'll do =)
austin_work
also be sure to test in current git, if you haven't already
spm_Draget
austin_work: I never used git before =/
austin_work
$ git fetch ; git rebase origin
will retrieve the latest, then apply it
spm_Draget
Hmm, if you give me a helping hand, I will try :P
*tries to dig for infos on how to setup the repository*
austin_work
spm_Draget: wait...have you not run the regression test?
spm_Draget
austin_work: Hmm? I just found a regression in an existing tool after updating from 44 to the latest rc
austin_work
spm_Draget: okay..but before filing a bug, you need to find which change broke it
spm_Draget
(Action) goes git for the first time, yay
TomInVegas
you were always a git in my mind, if that helps spm_Draget
spm_Draget
TomInVegas: Charming...
TomInVegas
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
spm_Draget
Year after year...
