(Resolved) Finally got wine onto 19.3... but get an error with an install file.

Post by 4ndy »

With the help of this article, I finally managed to install wine on LM19.3 after never figuring out how to overcome the huge dependency problems on previous attempts.
However, now when I try to run most of the applications that I installed on my main wineprefix drive before restoring my home directory when installing 19 last year, such as msoffice and a standalone SWF player, they and wine don't appear at all in the task manager when launched from the application menu*, but most work just fine when launched from their exe files in the file manager...
And when trying to install a new application from an exe file, I get this:

Code: Select all

Failed to read from file "unix\home\user\Software\MTGAInstaller.exe". Error: Path not found.
Edit: I managed to fix this error by moving the file into the wineprefix's C drive directory.

Is wine working fine again in LM20?
*I thought this might be due to shortcuts that need to be updated from a previous username, but updating the app menu shortcuts didn't fix that small issue.
