winetricks: still using wrong version

Post by alain.roger » Wed Oct 16, 2019 7:43 am


i use Kubuntu 19.04 and i uploaded new version of winetricks (20190912) into /usr/local/bin.
However when i run a command line like the following one:
WINEPREFIX=~/.win64 sh /usr/local/bin/winetricks fontsmooth=rgb wine-gecko wine-mono gdiplus vcrun2008 vcrun2010 vcrun2012 vcrun2013 vcrun2015 atmlib msxml3 msxml6 gdiplus corefonts

winetricks version is from 2017...

if i type: winetricks --version i get 20190912-next (so the last one i uploaded) where is the problem ?

The Winetricks version in Ubuntu Disco is 20181203. Where did you get a 2017 version?
The 2018 version has the "--self -update" option to update to the latest version.
