To enable Wine to use TrueType fonts

Post by mrolr » Thu Feb 14, 2019 7:51 am

Having some issues with Wine not finding truetype

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.

First thing you should have install was XQuartz 2.7.7 or later that includes libfreetype along with libpng15.15 that’s also needed to run wine

Thanks, I have solved this now using brew and a clean install.

Many thanks :D

I will be honest here I really wouldn't recommend installing wine via brew its missing features that are available in the winehq releases.

If your just wanting to have wine available using a normal terminal session I did update the macOS wiki section to include instructions for adding the "Wine Stable.app" , "Wine Devel.app" or "Wine Staging.app" to terminal's path so its usable just like a macports/brew installation..
The same can be accomplished by just unpacking a portable release just modifying the PATH variable slightly.
