Cannot find the ncurses library

Post by hiigaran » Sun Dec 02, 2018 9:51 am

I've got the following error when attempting to use winetricks to set up DXVK:

Code: Select all

Wine cannot find the ncurses library (libncurses.so.6).
However, if I apt install libncurses6, it tells me it is already the newest version.

Solution?

Did you also check the 32-bit package?

Code: Select all

apt-cache policy libncurses6:i386

Huh. I assumed it would have automatically installed that if I did the "dpkg --add-architecture i386". Okay, that seems to have fixed the issue. Cheers.
