wine bin dependencies problem

Postby Cr4ashT3stDum44'/ on Thu Jun 07, 2012 6:25 am

Hi all, I am a complete linux newbie, just started using lmde dual booting with win7. I thought it would be a good idea for my first try at installing programs in lmde to get wine (I love dwarf fortress and as I dont understand how to run the linux version I wanted to run the windows one with all my saves).

first I tried package manager, downloaded all it proposed me with the filter "wine"
I open the terminal, type wine... says I should install wine-bin.

after looking hi and lo on google I found this : http://www.fandigital.com/2012/05/insta ... linux.html
tried to follow the steps. The library installed just fine but when I get hold of wine-bin here :http://dev.carbon-project.org/debian/wine-unstable/
and try to install it :
Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: libwine-bin-unstable (= 1.5.5-0.1)

I must be doing something wrong. Before searched the forum, found the topic about the proper way to install mint in lmde but I cant understand a tenth of what is being said there (complete newbie)...

If anyone could help me understand the process of installing programs (and especially wine) in lmde I would be most grateful.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

That appears to be good information on setting up WINE.

You are just missing the first two steps.
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r)


I chose to follow this:


1. Make sure ttf-mscore* is installed by Synaptics first

2. Download those *.deb files for your 32Bit or 64Bit Version.
Open a Terminal Window:
Code: Select all
cd /path/to/your/downloaded/deb/files
sudo dpkg -i libwine*
sudo dpkg -i wine-*
sudo dpkg -i wine-unstable*

To add gecko, do this:
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/

Open Synaptics and "Fix Broken Packages, then Apply

3. Then run the configuration for Wine in a Terminal:
Code: Select all
winecfg


Logout & Login

4. Install your Windows Software for testing with:
Code: Select all
cd /path/to/win/software/for/wine/install
wine setup.exe
