Q4wine is unable to find Wineserver PATH

Postby G-Known » 2013-05-25 21:25

Hi,

I was installing Q4wine GUI for installing windows application and when I first run it, gave me an error that wineserver cannot be found so it takes me to a setup wizard which asks to browse for the binary file. I can't find it anywhere, does it anyone know where is it?

Code: Select all
which wine

will tell you.

(/usr/local/bin/wine in my case, but I've compiled it myself. The stock debian one might be in a different location, presumably /usr/bin/wine)

The path is listed under "wine bin", "wine loader" but it would be strange if it appears at the same path. I've looked at an example of where it is, supposedly pointing to wineserver, not wine. Using command: "which wineserver" will result into nothing.

Look at 48s in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=951nVQQJhks&noredirect=1 for wine-bin vs -loader.

Not sure why there is no wineserver -- there doesn't seem to be one in the Wheezy package. Compiling wine yourself does produce one though, e.g.http://verahill.blogspot.com.au/2013/05/416-wine-1530-in-chroot.html

Yes, the video is different from mine since those two options were left blank and that's why it was hinting for me to find the binary file in the first place. The strange issue is that my Wine program was installed successfully on Squeeze but upon upgrade, it disappeared. What's confusing is Wine has its own GUI, I never heard of Q4wine since it's part of another GUI that I haven't seen before.

Did anyone get to the bottom of this problem?

Code: Select all

------------------------------------------------------
wineserver not found!

According to this page: http://packages.debian.org/search?searc ... e&arch=any

libwine installs wineserver in

Code: Select all
/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/wine/wineserver


but my own single-deb Wine 1.7.4 installs it in usr/bin, and I see other wine versions, such as playonlinux, install it to wine/bin

Anyway, what if you make a symbolic link to your installed wineserver file to /usr/bin, i.e.

Code: Select all
ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/wine/wineserver /usr/bin/wineserver
