Install Wine-1.7 on lmde2

Postby d4rk50ld13r » Tue Apr 14, 2015 11:35 am

Hi

You may as well go ahead and install wine from lmde2 repositories , you will get wine 1.6 command line only.
But for those who are new to Linux , i will show you how to get Wine-1.7 Gui on lmde2.
Like this :
Image

# sudo pluma /etc/apt/sources.list.d/official-package-repositories.list

Add these lines :

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-wine/ppa/ubuntu trusty main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-wine/ppa/ubuntu trusty main



# sudo apt-get update

Open synaptic and install Wine 1.7 .

Image

That's it :)

You might hear that this method is not good and goes against Debian's policies ,
Just remember that you are using Firefox , Adobe-flash-player, Nvidia ecc.....

So Enjoy

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-wine/ppa/ubuntu YOUR_UBUNTU_VERSION_HERE main

And for a Debian based distro, YOUR_UBUNTU_VERSION_HERE would be...?


If you enjoy breaking things unexpectedly by using software that was built against libraries that may differ from the ones running on your system, by all means, follow the advice given above.

On the other hand, if you prefer using software that has a greater chance of being compatible with your libraries, but may still be a bit off (because it's built for sid), you might as well try the version provided by the liquorix repository:

http://techpatterns.com/forums/about2158.html

Code: Select all

deb http://liquorix.net/debian sid main


He doesn't build the wine packages every two weeks, so they do fall behind a bit (currently 1.7.37 while the most recent one on the wine website is 1.7.40), but they are more recent than 1.6.

For others, it is never a good idea to use Ubuntu repositories in Mint's Debian Edition.

I uninstalled all the wine files I've been fooling with for 2 days and tried this in Betsy MATE. It worked and, like the ubuntu install, it even provided a wine group in my applications menu.

It doesn't go against Debian policy but against common sense. PPA are for Ubuntu not for Debian. Read the FAQ. :?

I think the PPAs in the OP are from here:
https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-wine/+archive/ubuntu/ppa
which, IIRC, I used for quite a while without problems.
Mint 18.3 Xfce/fluxbox/pulse-less
Xubuntu 17.10/fluxbox/pulse-less
Please edit your original post title to include [SOLVED] if/when it is solved!

So since one ppa may be working correctly (?) we advertise it, and next time a beginner will use ppa thinking it's safe, breaking its system... Cool...

I think what throw off some people is to end up with a fresh new LTS Debian version with a broken wine environment and no explanation how to fix it, even if is a bad one. I'm posting this instruction hoping that someone else find it useful.

This information was originally posted in another thread were I was dealing with PlayOnLinux: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=238&t=193804&p=1006735#p1006735

Update your source list to include Liquorix

1. Open a terminal window and create the your new source list file :

Code: Select all

sudo touch /etc/apt/sources.list.d/liquorix.list


2. Temporarily change the file permission to append data with 'sudo'

Code: Select all

sudo chmod 646 /etc/apt/sources.list.d/liquorix.list


3. Insert the configuration parameter to liquorix.list file:
Refer to: http://liquorix.net/

Code: Select all

sudo echo "# /etc/apt/sources.list.d/liquorix.list" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/liquorix.list
sudo echo "deb http://liquorix.net/debian sid main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/liquorix.list
sudo echo "deb-src http://liquorix.net/debian sid main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/liquorix.list
sudo echo "" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/liquorix.list
sudo echo "# Mirrors:" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/liquorix.list
sudo echo "#" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/liquorix.list
sudo echo "# Unit193 - France" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/liquorix.list
sudo echo "# deb http://mirror.unit193.net/liquorix sid main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/liquorix.list
sudo echo "# deb-src http://mirror.unit193.net/liquorix sid main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/liquorix.list
sudo echo "#" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/liquorix.list
sudo echo "# Liquorix - Cloudfront Global CDN" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/liquorix.list
sudo echo "# deb http://cdn.liquorix.net/debian sid main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/liquorix.list
sudo echo "# deb-src http://cdn.liquorix.net/debian sid main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/liquorix.list


4. Change the file permission to its default values:

Code: Select all

sudo chmod 644 /etc/apt/sources.list.d/liquorix.list


Update your system package list, install the liquorix key and wine

5. Run:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update


6. Install Liquorix key:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install liquorix-keyring


7. Run:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update


8. Install Wine 1.7

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install wine1.7


Additionally you can install PlayOnLinux and work with it as usual with no errors.

Using this method does create the menu entries for Wine in the menu and updates the Nemo file manager, but you still have to do right-click on the *.exe file and choose Open With > Wine Windows Program Loader

Not quite so.

This might not work once Jessie becomes "stable", but for now, an easy way to get Wine 1.7 installed (mind you, not the latest - it's at 1.7.29 currently) is by using the wine-development package:

sudo apt-get install wine-development

Auch, no, I would not do that if I were you... unless you want to pay a visit to dependency hell.

LMDE is not your average Ubuntu-derived Mint. PPAs and Debian do not mix well at all.

Thanks snowfall :)
at least found someone who dosnt get outraged by adding stuff to Debian :)
I must say that wine 1.7 from Trusty's repositories , installed in the blink of an eye and required no dependencies.
in fact it installed so quick that i thought it wont work !!
but works like charm.

Not being outraged does not mean I recommend using PPAs with Debian/LMDE ;). It's a gamble at most, and has the potential to seriously mess up your system even if you know what you are doing.

It may work (like a charm) now, but as Trusty distances itself from Jessie in terms of package versions things will undoubtedly break.

If you want to keep your system stable (and sane) please either use what Debian/LMDE offers in its own repositories, add Debian (Jessie) third party repositories to upgrade your wine version to something more recent, or compile it yourself if you feel up to the task.

http://liquorix.net/ is a Debian repository right? And by the way tools like PlayOnLinux/winetricks does not work with 'wine-develompent' packages, Is there a way to use 'wine-development' as a drop-in replacement? I'm more a Red-hat guy, but I feel like I'm starting with the wrong foot with Debian just by reading their bug reports about it:

https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=778294 --> According to this guy Wine is like a library, he even to suggest to use a front-end like PlayOnLinux... heello? PlayOnLinux does not work with your buggy packages... I hope that Mint team could workaround this.

It's a Debian Sid repository, so things will typically expect more recent package versions then you'd find in Jessie (on which LMDE2 is based). Sid is the current Debian "unstable" release.

Most liquorix packages will work without a hitch when Sid and Jessie are close in terms of package versions, but that won't be the case for long since Jessie will soon become the next Debian "stable" release and will no longer receive updates (in fact, Jessie has been frozen for some time now, although it is still considered Debian "testing"). Some selected packages, though, may always work without issues.

I'm not sure about PlayOnLinux since I'm not using it in LMDE, but winetricks works fine with wine-development - at least I haven't had any problems with it so far.

I would not use RHEL or Debian as a desktop distro (LMDE is tolerable, but I still think it's better suited for small server builds than for desktop use), but it all depends on what you're looking to get out of a desktop distro really.

Wine-development is not upto par either. Used wine-unstable 1.7.15 for a long time with good performance changed to wine-development, had to get rid of that in no time. Was already using pipelight which installs wine-staging to run and started to use that.

Just go to their website http://www.wine-staging.com and follow the instructions for debian jessie. No need for winetricks and/or dll tricks sofar. I am playing Wow (64bit) Diablo3 and EVEonline with no tweaks whatsoever.

While your busy also look at pipelight http://pipelight.net/cms/installation.html as it can enable you to run silverlight in firefox and be able to watch Netflix but you to install an user agent switcher.

Do note: Avoid if at all possible mixing Ubuntu packages with LMDE (2) and or Debian jessie.

Breaking things is not cool. There are people that don't want to make 10 reinstallations in a week . Yes its true !
I don't belong in this category.

PS1: I remember messing with opensuse 4-5 years ago , it could break even by installing its own packages ! lol never tried opensuse again

I read everything with the translator, I do not understand English. So maybe I did not understand everything

Now I still do not know how to install a wine in LMDE2 that works "cleanly" since it is not recommended to use an ubuntu app.

The version of Wine proposed in the manager is installable but still not operational, winecfg is "unknown" in the terminal.

Sorry for translation.

Hello,

For LMDE2, you should follow the debian page instructions to use wine properly:

https://wiki.debian.org/Wine

It helped me a lot to solve the problems I met with Wine.

EDIT: You can try Wine-staging if you absolutely need a newer version.
