PostPosted: Sun 05 Aug 2007, 07:04    Post subject:  Howto Add Wine To Puppy
Subject description: How i got it working.
 

Hi All

Have seen a few posts where people are having trouble setting up wine.
The following method is how i went about it, i post it in the hope that it helps somebody.


Adding WINE (in puppy 2.16.1 frugal)

Downloaded http://puppyfiles.org/dotpupsde/dotpups/Emulators/Wine-0.9.28_212.sfs

and put a copy in the same place as your pup_save.2fs: /mnt/home

Then change the puppy version number, from 212 to 216.
Because the BootManager will not see it otherwise.

Now using Menu > System > BootManager
add the folowing: Wine-0.9.28_216.sfs (originally was Wine-0.9.28_212.sfs )
to be loaded next boot-up. (and each boot thereafter)

Now Reboot.

Back in puppy, Navigate here: /usr/bin/winecfg and click on it.

Up pops the Wine configuration GUI (i leave everything as is)
Click OK


You can have a another reboot if you really want to. (but its probably not needed)

Then Back in puppy, its ... time to throw wine something to chew on.

INSTALLING SOMETHING INTO WINE.

This is how i got my copy of Delta Cad into wine.

Into a drive goes the Delta Cad CD
Mount the drive, using either MUT or Pmount
RIGHT click on setup.exe
Select Set Run Action
In the new window that appears, change:
"$@"
to look like :
wine "$@"

Click on:
"Use Command" button.

Now Left click on: setup.exe

Delta Cad install starts, and installs to:
/root/WINDOWS-C-DRIVE/Program Files/DeltaCad

In that directory i click on DELTACAD.EXE
/root/WINDOWS-C-DRIVE/Program Files/DeltaCad/DELTACAD.EXE

Delta Cad fires up. lovely jubbly (Still need to tweak a bit, eg: fonts)

And that was all there was to it.

For sure, it does take a bit of fiddling to get things working properly at times,
for example: what windows version you run you app under can effect the way things behave.

So i encourage you to give it a shot, and play with the settings.
If at first it dont work right, DO NOT GIVE UP

These are a few things i have running in wine.
DeltaCad (obviously)
IrfanView
The!Checker


Previously i have also had these working.
VSO DivxToDVD 0.5.2.99
DVD Shrink 3.2


Go on. You know you want to

Puppy suddenly gets to be an even BIGGER playground when drunk. Laughing Laughing

TIP (originally posted by vovchik)
Quote:

If you are tired of tiny fonts in Wine - as is the case by default
Simply open the system.reg file (located in /root/.wine)
and search for the string LogPixels in the section
[System\\CurrentControlSet\\Hardware Profiles\\Current\\Software\\Fonts]

In order to change the DPI setting from, say, 70 to 85, alter the last two numbers of the following key:

old:
"LogPixels"=dword:00000070
new:
"LogPixels"=dword:00000085

Save the file and start a windows app. Voila, you will have larger fonts!


Enjoy

I renamed Wine-0.9.28_212.sfs to Wine-0.9.28_217.sfs and it works also with Puppy 2.17.1 frugal install.
Many thanks, CatDude

hi.

I've tried the wine-0.9.35.pet on a clean 2.16 , but gives an error: "wine: glibc >= 2.3 without NPTL or TLS is not a supported combination."
Installing "glibc-2.4.pet" seems to fix that error, but I think it can break something else. (perhaps my ftp server, that suddendly stops working?)

I will try the sfs file today.

I've insalled the sfs file, and running "winecfg" gives me the same error:
"wine: glibc >= 2.3 without NPTL or TLS is not a supported combination.", but wine seems to work, so the .pet file that didn't work did not work because something else.

I get that also if i run winecfg from a console/terminal.
But not if i navigate to /usr/bin/winecfg and click on it.

Like you say though, it doesnt appear to cause any issues, and wine does work.

HI,
After doing some testing, I've found that installing glibc-2.4.pet DO break things. In my case PureFTP stops working.
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=20739
And uninstall glibc-2.4 was impossible for me (puppy died in the try)
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=20739

So, I will continue trying. Wine without that glibc-2.4 seems to work with some simple apps, but not with others that installs to hd, the same that were working OK when I installed glibc-2.4

Any advice about wine versions, sfs or .pup files to install will be appreciated, since I have a Windows application that I need to run under linux...

Fernan.-

dear all,

I've installed Wine-0.9.28_216.sfs on pure puppy 2.17 and rename it with ..._217.sfs. But after adding it on bootmanager then reboot, i can't found winecfg in /usr/bin or any place on filesystem.

Why this happen ?

On another day i try installed crossover office by codeweaver but get some error messages to find perl file

which is better for puppy, installing wine or crossover office ?

Leo-Ko,

if you've got a full(normal) hdisk install, instead of a frugal(co-exist) install, then for the wine.xxx.sfs you can either copy everything permanently to your hdisk, then delete the win.xxx.sfs, or add a line to mount it upon boot, (to /etc/rc.d/rc.local), and symlink the relevant bits. to copy to hdisk you would do:

Code:
mkdir /wine-tmp
mount -o loop /wine.xxx.sfs /wine-tmp
cp -ax /wine-tmp/* /
umount /wine-tmp
rmdir /wine-tmp


(you would need to replace wine.xxx.sfs with whatever version you're using).

I am a new user of linux and me and been possible realize that is quite complicated to dominate the necessary thing to make some programs work.

I believe that a structure or organization is absent, more betatesters to develop programs, but such you see that him quietaria the gusta to linux.


good, since I must learn many things, first I will try to learn to compile, later the wine will try to make to work in my PC.


thanks for the response; D

You need to create a chroot'd environment for Wine with glibc 2.4. This would allow Wine to run with glibc 2.4.

(I'm not sure if this belongs here, or in the bugs subforum)

I followed the instructions in the first post, but the program I've installed onto the "C" drive runs for about three seconds then shuts off without explanation. Help anyone?
