Wine

Postby ckosloff » 2012-01-31 02:20

I am running wheezy and kde in my main system (amd 64), but I also have a 32-bit machine on sid.
In wheezy repos I could only find winetricks to no avail. nothing happens after installing it.
If I search for app in application search box, only a dialog "Run WInetricks" appears, but nothing happens after that, probably because wine is not even installed, because there is no wine in wheezy repos, a mismatch.
Now, on sid I can install everything: wine, winetricks and playonlinux.
Would like to do same in wheezy.
Does anybody know if winetricks and playonlinux conflict?
I can install wine-unstable version 1.4~rc1 from http://dev.carbon-project.org/debian/wine-unstable/
playonlinux also asked for a python package (cannot remember which one now), but it was not present in wheezy repos, checked for it in packages.debian.org and not found in sid either.

Wine is removed in wheezy.
I did however found a good how-to for adding wine http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=75075.
But I have however not found a simple way to add playonlinux .

Running Debian Squeeze with xfce4 on a Fujitsu P7120 and a Asus ITX HTPC with Debian Squeeze with xfce4 . Debian just keeps getting better and better .

Sorry, but this how-to is exactly what I said before:
"I can install wine-unstable version 1.4~rc1 from http://dev.carbon-project.org/debian/wine-unstable/"
Contrary to the how-to you mention I would not use sudo.
Thanks anyway.

This thread is more than 3 weeks old, but insn't marked als 'solved' -

If you're still having trouble with wine and/or playonlinux (as it hasn't moved into wheezy repo afaik),
there are several ways of solution:

1) (Temporarily) activate the squeeze repository
Add a file named squeeze.list containing the line "deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ squeeze main contrib" to your /etc/apt/sources.list.d directory
and and perform a "apt-get update".
"apt-cache policy playonlinux" will tell you:
playonlinux:
Installiert: (keine)
Kandidat: 3.7.6-1
Versionstabelle:
3.7.6-1 0
100 http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ squeeze/contrib i386 Packages
(German variant here, yours will be slightly different :).

2) Follow the installation recommendations at "http://www.playonlinux.com/en/download.html" (which will bring you POL 4.0.15)

3) Download the .deb package from "http://www.playonlinux.com/en/download.html" (which also will bring you POL 4.0.15)
and install the package manually. I strongly recommend using gdebi over dpkg in this case.

4) Compile from source following the recommendations at "http://www.playonlinux.com/en/download.html"

BUT be aware that POL can mess up existing wine installations, and: it's _not_ wine.
ALSO be aware that installing from "http://dev.carbon-project.org/debian/wine-unstable/" might bring you some extra-trouble,
since these packages also do _not_ provide "wine", but "wine-unstable"! You won't be able to install packages (the debian way) that depend on wine.
There are possible workarounds, but that requires quite some extra-work. Btw, also in this case I strongly recommend using gdebi
over dpkg (in contradiction to "http://nicolaselie.wordpress.com/2011/09/26/install-wine-on-debian-wheezy-testing/").

Of course, the method to aquire root privileges is up to you...

Thanks for detailed post.
I am a KDE user, I think that gdebi is a gnome package.
Don't know of an equivalent in KDE, except for...dpkg.

http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/gdebi-kde
Package: gdebi-kde (0.6.4+squeeze1)

Simple tool to install deb files - KDE GUI

gdebi lets you install local deb packages resolving and installing its dependencies. apt does the same, but only for remote (http, ftp) located packages.

This package contains the KDE user interface.

And why do people think you can't install gnome applications in KDE? Trust me it works just fine and won't eat your system.

I installed gdebi-kde.
My question is about compatibility:
POL vs. Wine-unstable vs Wine (old ) vs winetricks vs Codeweavers.
Which applications can be used in conjunction and which are incompatible?
