Wine 4.0.2 - Can't get anything to work

Post by Brogar » Wed Aug 28, 2019 12:09 am

I'm running an iMac late 2009, macOS 10.13.6. I've installed Wine-stable 4.0.2 with the 64-bit option using "winehq-stable-4.0.2.pkg" downloaded from:

https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/macos ... -4.0.2.pkg

On running Wine Stable.app, I get the two standard Terminal windows. One is just an ordinary window, the other has the Wine introductory instructions. It says:

"If you want to configure wine:
winecfg"

A hidden folder called "user/[home]/.wine" was created and (I assume) contains the prefix.

I typed winecfg at the prompt and got this:

Wine cannot find the FreeType font library. To enable Wine to
use TrueType fonts please install a version of FreeType greater than
or equal to 2.0.5.
http://www.freetype.org

Separately, a process called "wine-64-preloader" started. It is visible in the application switcher and has two menus "Wine" and "Window". Nothing else happens.

I get the same result with all executables.

I installed the FreeType dlls for Windows (from the 2.10.1 release) into the .Wine folder but, the FreeType error messages persist.

I can't find any logs which might help diagnose the problem.

I can't figure out what to do. Have Googled and searched for other discussions but nothing seems like this problem.


Thanks.

Your required to install XQuartx2.7.7 or higher to use winehq releases.

The freetype wine is looking for is the native macOS version aka dylib not the dll it also required libpng15.15.dylib that’s also included within the required version of XQuartz
