problem : enable to configure any application with winetrick

Post by wormsf » Fri Feb 01, 2019 10:38 am

Helo
I just have installed wine and winetricks following explanations given in the following web page
https://wiki.winehq.org/Ubuntu
https://wiki.winehq.org/Winetricks
When I have run winetricks it automatically has configured gecko and mono

just after I tried to configure 2 applications I use : kobo and ADE (they are in the list of applications proposed by winetricks)

kobo
usb driver couldn’t be installed
Note: command wine KoboSetup.exe returned status 2. Aborting.


ADE
Working around wine bug 32323
Running /usr/bin/wineserver -w. This will hang until all wine processes in prefix=/home/worms19/.wine terminate
Running /usr/bin/wineserver -w. This will hang until all wine processes in prefix=/home/worms19/.wine terminate


it finishes only when I kill winetricks process

Hi,
How exactly are you installing these packages? Are you installing a 32 bit version of these softwares and are you using a clean wineprefix for each? You must use a clean 32bit wineprefix for every application (unless it is 64bit only)

Wine doesn't support Windows hardware drivers. Well, that's not 100% true, you can now use HID devices like gamepads, but apart from that almost no windows driver will work in wine, not even the installation will work. So if that Kobo app really needs to install a hardware driver, you'll be out of luck. Still it might make sense to try a 32bit wineprefix.

Wine's appdb has a Kobo Desktop and a Kobo Reader, at least Kobo Desktop should work.

ADE (Adobe Digital Edition?) might work with some workarounds and 32bit wineprefix.

Hello
To install winehq, I have followed the wiki page : https://wiki.winehq.org/Ubuntu and install what is suggested for mint19
then I have installed winetricks
the 2 applications Kobo and Adobe Digital Edition are part of applications listed in wintricks install_application menu
so I don't think it's a problem of hardware drivers
I have tried to install wine with the 2 architectures 32 or 64 bits (export WINEPREFIX=win32 or win64)

I have also tried to run wine ADE_setup.exe, it doesn't work

I don' know if my previous answer has been sent
I have installed wine has described in the wiki page : https://wiki.winehq.org/Ubuntu
I have configured wine in 32 bits environment
I have installed winetricks, Kobo and Adobe digital Edition are 2 softwares proposed by winetricks (so theorically supported)

I have also download ADE and run : export WINEARCH=win32; wine ADE.exe, but it stop saying that ADE is already working !!!!!

Winetricks is a separate project, not supported here. Their bug tracker is at https://github.com/Winetricks/winetricks/issues. The problem with ADE has already been reported. https://github.com/Winetricks/winetricks/issues/1092
