scenario: Trying to install corefonts via winetricks

I tried:

1. wine-stable (from Ubuntu) and winehq-stable (from winehq.org)
2. winetricks (from Ubuntu) and winetricks from github

same result.

To make sure no wine process is running, I:
1. restarted the machine to make sure I don't have an orphan wine process somewhere
2. ran ps aux | grep win[e]

Any ideas? Thank you very much!

Just to make sure, you clicked ok, right?

Open the taskmanager to see what wine processes are running. If you want you can kill them with "wineserver -k"

yes I clicked ok but it seems it's on an infinite loop.

Well I would've thought "ps aux | grep win[e]" would list all any processes with the word "wine" in it. :) In any case, I "CTRL-C" to stop winetricks and tried "wineserver -k" and then run winetricks again. no difference.

edit: Seems the infinite loop only happens on some fonts. I was able to install Tahoma font.

Well, it does. But not every process started from wine does have "wine" in its name. Just try running "wine notepad" and then "ps aux | grep win" - you won't find it like that.

I didn't mean it like that. Don't CTRL-C, just let winetricks wait, and in parallel run "wineserver -k" to kill the processes winetricks is waiting on. ;) While not very nice, this should help get it further.
Although an endless wait is probably a bug with winetricks.

My quick goto Wine process lister is:
Code:
ps aux | grep [.]exe

To clarify you want to run:
Code:
wineserver -k

in a different terminal session / tab (with your WINEPREFIX variable exported first).

winetricks has a lot of issues IMHO... It's best to get familiar with workarounds for these... :cry:
If your issue is reproducible, you should probably report it on the Github: winetricks Issue Tracker.
