How to uninstall the latest Wine on my PC and install the 4.11...

Post by Codesound » Tue Jan 07, 2020 2:29 pm

Hi,
maybe I have found a way to make waves audio plugins work, BUT i need to uninstall the latest Wine develop that is installed on my PC because "Waves Central has moved to using Powershell and Windows Powershell doesn't seem to work in a total way under Wine."

https://linuxmusicians.com/viewtopic.php?f=62&t=20451

How can I uninstall wine-develop? and Install the "wine-4.11-staging-improved-amd64.tar.xz" downloaded from:
https://github.com/Kron4ek/Wine-Builds/ ... after=4.17

Can anyone help me please?
Thanks....

You don't have to uninstall Wine to use the Wine builds from Kron4ek
How to use
Extract the desired build to any directory, and then you can run applications using the path to the Wine binary. For example:

/home/username/wine-4.4-amd64/bin/wine application.exe
If you want to uninstall Wine, we need to know how you installed Wine.

Hi,

first of all, Thank you for your response...

In the last year I have tried to find an audio configuration for my PC with a Linux Mint_x64 (Cinnamom) system for many reasons.

Step back: the actual WavesCentral11 needed Windows Powershell: impossible to install in wine...
I install WavesCentral10 because it seems to work well under LINUX (seems to need no Powershell).


These are the steps used for install Wine:

INSTALL WINEHQ-DEVEL

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386     
	wget -nc https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/winehq.key     
	sudo apt-key add winehq.key     
	sudo apt-add-repository 'deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ bionic main'     
	sudo apt update     
	sudo apt upgrade     
	sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cybermax-dexter/sdl2-backport     
	sudo apt update     
	sudo apt upgrade     
	sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-devel
LIBRARY for some VST-PLUGIN fonts:

Code: Select all

sudo apt install winetricks     
		winetricks     
		winetricks -q mfc42     
		winetricks -q corefonts
Now is need to be install in Wine some DLL's and Environment variables, BEFORE WavesCentral... These are the steps used:

Code: Select all

sudo apt install winbind gnutls-bin libntlm0
winetricks -q d3dx11_42
winetricks -q d3dx11_43
winetricks -q gdiplus
winetricks -q mfc42
winetricks -q vcrun2005
winetricks -q vcrun2008
winetricks -q vcrun2010
winetricks -q vcrun2013
winetricks -q vcrun2015
winetricks -q webio
winetricks -q wininet
Open terminal and digit

Code: Select all

winecfg
The following DLL overrides should be designated in Libraries tab of winecfg.
(native, builtin should be specified in all overrides.)

Code: Select all

d2d1
ierutil
mfc140
mfc42
mfc42u
nsi
In addition, Windows Versions in Applications tab should be set to 7 or later (10 in my case).

Install Robocopy
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/downloa ... x?id=17657

Adding Environment variables:

Code: Select all

wine regedit
Add the following environment variables under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Environment

Code: Select all

NAME	                                   DATA
COMMONPROGRAMFILES(X86)	   C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files
PROGRAMFILES(X86)	            C:\Program Files (x86)
PUBLIC	                                  C:\users\Public
Now we can install Waves Central 10 for manage/install Waves plugins, BUT when started, it's splash screen becomes frozen and I can't install anything... (needless to say, installing wavescentral11 doesn't even start and an error window is highlighted)....

For these reasons I would to try to install the "wine-4.11-staging-improved-amd64.tar.xz" suggested in LinuxMusicans forum but I don't unedstand how to make it....

Thanks for now...
