Accordance 13 Screen Solid Black

Post by parkernathan » Wed Dec 01, 2021 9:58 pm

I'm trying to install the Windows version of Accordance 13 under the WINE 6.0.2 on Linux Mint Uma Cinnamon on a 2011 iMac I erased macOS on and installed Linux Mint. I installed WINE directly through the installation instructions on winehq.org, not the Software Manager.

So far, Logos 9, EchoLink, and Nota Bene are running successfully on Accordance 13.

First, Accordance 13 would not launch. I followed these instructions on the Accordance Forums to install an upgraded mesa package:

Accordance 13 will now launch. However, the screen is totally blacked out where I cannot read anything. I can post screenshots if need be.

Does anyone have some suggestions on what I can do to remove the black out and get Accordance 13 running decently on WINE? If I can manage to get it running at least decently for critical work, I'll have zero reason to need to remain on Windows or Mac and can 100% transition my daily work machine to Linux.

Thanks!

I've attached a Terminal output of running the app under WINE with the error message it's throwing. This might help to pinpoint specifically what is causing the screen to black out.

I have someone looking into this. I'll followup with the results.

The previous version of Accordance (10) on WINE hit a brick wall, so I've scrapped that version.

I may give it a spin on PlayOnLinux or a CrossOver trial.

It's "possible" that Accordance is hiring me this year as a consultant. If they do, I'll have direct access to their Windows developer and can find out more about dependencies that the Windows version needs, plus with the extra income, I'd probably go ahead and invest in CrossOver. I'll have more resources to investigate this further (and actually get paid to do it). In the meantime, I'll keep using it on my other Mac at the moment, and I could throw it in a Windows VM if need be.

Thanks again!
