Winetricks

Post by jlnhlfan » Sat Mar 09, 2019 12:35 pm

I tried to install Winetricks using the tutorial here: https://wiki.winehq.org/Winetricks

But I got this error the moment I finished the very first step. Is there any way around this?

P.S.: I'm doing this so I can install IE6.

The command was

Code: Select all

cd "${HOME}/Downloads"
you missed the $

Also macOS does not include wget by default a but it does include curl

Code: Select all

curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Winetricks/winetricks/master/src/winetricks -o winetricks
Now to the final step

Code: Select all

chmod +x winetricks
The problems you will face after that is the lack of cabextract, unzip, p7zip



A better alternative would be to install homebrew and install winetricks via brew;

Code: Select all

brew install winetricks
brew will also install cabextract, unzip, p7zip

You would still need to add wine to your PATH variable I included instructions for that to the macOS wiki section a while back




EDIT;
You would need to find the IE6 installer from somewhere as I believe the current link winetricks has is broken

Thanks, but the Terminal did absolutely nothing after every command, as you can see by this screenshot. When I did the command the second time, the Terminal went back to its old self and gave me the first error I got when trying to do this.

And that time you missed the “ at the end of the first command....

If you read all of my reply’s you would have instead installed homebrew and used that to install winetricks since it will download the remaining dependancies for you.
