Install Wine in 201204 LMDE - XFCE Desktop

Postby lkraemer on Mon Apr 30, 2012 10:22 pm

I have searched the forum for how to install Wine in LMDE (XFCE Desktop). I have also used Google to search for installing Wine and found:
http://r3dux.org/2012/03/how-to-install ... e-in-lmde/

Instead of following the above information on installing gecko, I used this code:
Code: Select all
wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/wine/wine_gecko-1.5-x86.msi
sudo mkdir -p /usr/share/wine/gecko
sudo mv wine_gecko-1.5-x86.msi /usr/share/wine/gecko/


I'm not 100% sure this was the best way, but I did get Wine installed, so I could install TurboCAD Ver 7.1
If there is a better way for LMDE or Tutorial, please point me to the site/URL.

My problem is the Wine Menu shown in the attached PNG. That Menu selection has a Launcher that contains the following:
Code: Select all
env WINEPREFIX="/home/mint/.wine" wine C:\\windows\\command\\start.exe /Unix /home/mint/.wine/dosdevices/c:/users/mint/Start\ Menu/Programs/IMSI\ TurboCAD\ v7/TurboCAD\ v7.1.lnk

and the launcher doesn't work properly. I've drug that launcher to the Desktop and made the following edit:
Code: Select all
env WINEPREFIX="/home/mint/.wine" wine C:\\windows\\command\\start.exe /Unix /home/mint/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/IMSI/TCW70/Program/Tcw70.exe

to get the launcher to properly execute TurboCAD 7.1

Now, I need to know where the actual Menu selection items reside, because I'd like to either delete that menu choice, or edit it to make it correct, allowing me to
delete my temporary Desktop Icon Launcher.

Somehow I've also got a Menu selection named "OTHER" as shown in the second png file. It appeared when I installed the gecko engine from executing winecfg.
It just magically appeared. I'd like to purge that Menu Selection, if is is possible! REF: Above information about installing gecko............

I need a bit of expert guidance to proceed.

Note: TurboCAD Ver 7.1 seems to run and work well, for the little bit of playing I've done so far.


THANKS for LMDE!

Larry

After hours of searching I finally found how to change the XFCE Menu for TurboCAD, so it executes correctly.............NO Desktop Icon required......

For XFCE to start TurboCAD 7.1 from the XFCE Menu, edit the TurboCAD v7.1 File in mint/user/.local/share/applications/wine/programs/IMSI TurboCAD v7/

Here are the necessary changes to make it work, assuming a DEFAULT Install of TurboCAD v71.
Just be sure to change "mint" to your username in all the code below:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=TurboCAD v7.1
Exec=env WINEPREFIX="/home/mint/.wine" wine C:\\\\windows\\\\command\\\\start.exe /Unix /home/mint/.wine/drive_c/Program\\ Files/IMSI/TCW70/Program/Tcw70.exe
Type=Application
StartupNotify=true
Comment=Description of shortcut
Path=/home/mint/.wine/dosdevices/c:/Program Files/IMSI/TCW70/Program/
Icon=A273_FrontLine.0
GenericName=

The previous posting referenced http://r3dux.org/2012/03/how-to-install-the-latest-version-of-wine-in-lmde/

where Wine 1.50 used to be located for download, but has since been updated to Wine 1.5.5 (from the SID Repository)
And as usual there are some dependencies that are now missing...................So, if you enable the SID repo's with:

Code: Select all
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian sid main


and then install the following updated SID deb's:
Code: Select all
libmpg123-0 (1.14.2-1)
libcapi20-3 (1:3.22+dfsg1-6)
libgettextpo0 (0.18.1.1-9)

you can proceed with the previous guide.........................
Code: Select all
sudo dpkg -i libwine*
sudo dpkg -i wine-*   
sudo dpkg -i wine-unstable*

..................................to get Wine 1.5.5 working in LMDE.
Then disable the SID Repo's.....................
