Help with Fluenz on wine

Post by timbuck2 » Mon Dec 31, 2018 12:26 pm

I switched to linux and there is no native linux app for Fluenz language program.

I installed my dvd to wine and it loads fine but I have to login to connect first before the lessons are available.

It says "No Internet? It appears you are not connected to internet. You need to be online to continue. Come back when you are up and running."

Image

All my other Internet programs are working in wine, so I'm not sure how to get it working.

Is there any way to check a log or debug information to see what it needs? I am fairly new to wine so sorry about my lack of knowledge.

I do see a lot of libraries in the installation directory.

Image

Does wine automatically use these or do I need to move them to another directory? Most of them are QT5 libraries. Is there a way to install QT5 support?

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Found out how to activate logging in Fluenz itself and here is a section of the log which may explain why the network connection is not working.

Can any gurus interpret this logging output for me?

Code: Select all

What wine version are you running?
A wine log would be more useful, I guess.
Is there a free trial?

There is nothing you need to do here.

Hello and thanks for the reply. I am using wine-stable 3.0.1ubuntu1 from the Linux Lite 4.2 distro.

There is no trial that I am aware of but here is the install iso. It installs fine, but cannot connect to the Internet to validate login credentials. Without credentials it can't be used any further so it's not a problem to post it and anyway the problem is before that anyway.

Also, here is the log and debug trace for the Fluenz program. Thanks for the help!

I get the exact same issue on my windows machine. I'm afraid I can't help here, since there is no visible wine error.

Do you mean a native Windows machine? It does require Windows 10. It works perfectly on my Windows 10 drive. It is only under Wine on my new Linux installation that it doesn't connect. I have wine configured to run this app as Windows 10, but no luck.

Ok, it works on my Win10 machine. It never said it requires Win10, so I used by Win7 machine - where it does not work. It appears to use some Win10 functions, please open a bugreport for this issue if there is none yet.

Created a bugreport here: https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=46402

Also mentioned a workaround, in dns_do_query you can force res_query to always use T_A as DNS type.

Oh thanks for the workaround. How do I set the dns_do_query to force res_query to always use T_A? Could you give me the steps to do that?

Do you know how to build Wine from source? You need to for the workaround, I attached a patch at the bugreport.

Does it matter which source version I compile to patch? I don't see a source download in my package manager so I assume must download from somewhere. My distro Linux Lite has 3.0.1ubuntu1.

For info on how to build wine, see https://wiki.winehq.org/Building_Wine. A simple 32bit build is fine.

Could you send me a binary with the changes? I am not too good with compiling programs. I can send you a paypal donation for your work.

Following the wiki I downloaded the source from git, but when I run the dependency check

Code: Select all

./configure --options
I get

Code: Select all

./configure --options
configure: error: unrecognized option: `--options'
Try `./configure --help' for more information
So I ran ./configure by itself and get:

Code: Select all

./configure

checking host system type... x86_64-pc-linux-gnu
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking for gcc... gcc

checking for cpp... cpp

configure: error: Cannot build a 32-bit program, you need to install 32-bit development libraries.
What are the libraries I need to install. Searching for 32-bit in the package manager lists dozens of selections. Thanks for your help!

installed libc6-dev-i386 and it moved configure past the error.

But then I get:
configure: error: X 32-bit development files not found. Wine will be built
without X support, which probably isn't what you want. You will need
to install 32-bit development packages of Xlib at the very least.
Use the --without-x option if you really want this.
Can find a package for 32-bit Xlib in my distro. Any suggestions?

Attaching a binary to work around the issue.
Just drop the dll inside the zip into ".wine/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Fluenz/bin/", or wherever you installed it. Should fix the issue just like that.
Let me know if it works.

I copied to drive_c\windows\system32 also but no luck. I went to winecfg to add an override for the dll for Fluenz and tried all options but no luck.

You put the dnsapi.dll right next to Fluenz.exe ?
Can you try to update to wine-3.21 and check again? Because 3.0.1 doesn't work for me either.

Re: Help with Fluenz on wine

Ok I followed the instructions here: https://wiki.winehq.org/Ubuntu for Ubuntu 18.04 and set it up with

Code: Select all

sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-staging
which installed wine-4.0-rc4 (Staging). Is that ok? I couldn't find a way to make it install wine-3.21.

I set my wine prefix and arch with:

Code: Select all

WINEPREFIX=~/.wine WINEARCH="win64" winecfg
and installed wine-mono when it asked.

I used

Code: Select all

wine control
and it listed wine-gecko (32-bit) 2.47 under programs so I manually installed the 64-bit version with

Code: Select all

wine msiexec -i ./wine_gecko-2.47-x86_64.msi
.

Then I mounted the Fluenz.iso and installed it. Before running I copied over your dnsapi.dll to the Fluenz install directory. Now I could login!

However 2 problems. When the program is run and I log in, it prompts for an update to the program. It starts to download and the progress bar gets about 90% done and then the program closes. Here is the debug log for this problem.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/iuuqr1j5b3qu0 ... e.log?dl=1

Image

Next, if I skip the update, I can choose a lesson. It downloads the lesson fine, but when I select it to view the media it says:
The video could not be loaded, either because the server or network failed or because the format is not supported


Here is the debug log for this problem.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/xz4jncihm2a1e ... d.log?dl=1

I also tried all the steps above with a clean win32 prefix and had the same results. Thanks for you help with this.

Sure, good enough.

For the update, you could try making a win32 WINEPREFIX and running "winetricks -q ie8".
For the video, this is probably due to mfplat.dll. You could try a native dll from a win7 machine, but not sure how that would work out... I can't test since I don't have an account.

Ok, I will try that about ie8.

It does require windows10. Should I get the mfplat.dll from there or windows7? I have both native operating systems on my machine alongside linux.

You can try, but not sure if that just works.
