How to install Wine on 64 bit

Postby cottfcfan on Wed May 02, 2012 12:02 pm

Although this subject in often discussed this is the easiest method ive found.
1. Download all the AMD64 bit debs from here into your home folder. (should be 16 .debs)
http://dev.carbon-project.org/debian/wine-unstable/
2. Install the missing dependencies:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer ia32-libs lib32asound2 lib32gcc1 libc6-dev-i386 libc6-i386

It will drag in other packages as well.
3. Install the downloaded packages:
Code: Select all
cd

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install libwine* wine*

4. If there are any broken packages:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get -f install

Wine should now be installed.
5. Open up "Wine Configuration" You will now be prompted to install "wine gecko".
6. Font smoothing was a problem with me, easy to resolve though.
Code: Select all
wget http://files.polosatus.ru/winefontssmoothing_en.sh

then:
Code: Select all
bash winefontssmoothing_en.sh

Choose subpixel smoothing RGB.
You should now be ready to go.
