I´ve been using IrfanView through Wine on Manjaro Linux for some time on various new installs now and usually all works just fine "out of the box". I can usually just download the newest installers and run them with Wine to get everything installed and running dandy (even being able to open a file from say Gwenview by selecting "open with IrfanView"). Very impressed with how that works and integrates these days, so thanks to all for that!!
Now I´m sitting behind a machine (Lenovo T400) that ran thus fine before, but I did a new install of Manjaro due to other issues.
Trying to install IrfanView again, as usual, without result (wine hourglass mouse cursor comes alive and first time round the "configuration being updated" pop-up appears but then it dies quietly.
Next I tried installing through winetricks and now, eventually, I get an error message:
Code: Select all
Note: command wine /home/myname/.cache/winetricks/vcrun6/vc6redistsetup.exe /T:C:windowsTemp /c returned status 53. Aborting
Nevertheless note the strange temp directory: C:windowsTemp (as opposed to C:windows/temp or C:windows\temp or whatever.
So I tried manually creating that directory but to no avail.
Is there something amiss in the current scripts that prevents the various processes from creating/using a proper temp directory and hence failing?
Thanks in advance for any pointers as to solving this!
