Removing Xquartz as a dependency?

Post by Chrysogonus » Mon Oct 15, 2018 9:35 am

The Wine installer requires Xquartz to run, but I find that Wine itself does not require X11 if it's using the native window server. Could the installer be modified to remove this requirement?

The only real reason to keep the requirement is due to the installers copy of wine is missing libfreetype and libpng. If those were added then yes it would not be needed. Even more so since all of us builds from winehq all support macdriver.

That's very encouraging; what would need to be done to achieve this?

They would need to bundle libfreetype.6.dylib and libpng15.15.dylib like what is done with libopenal and the few others dylibs that are provided with wine.
