Dear green_dome,

Many thanks for your version of 1.3.1. It works on my Puppy 3.01 and 3.10 and installs fine.

With kind regards,
vovchik

PS. I did notice that the download was a few MB larger than the last versions. Did you strip anything?

I did not strip anything this time. I may do that in the future though.

Ok, here is another novice attempt (release 2) at compiling wine 1.1.31.
I split it into two files and attempted some stripping of the main file. Thanks technosaurus, for your example in one of your posts.

wine-1.1.31-i486.pet
md5 - 4fad4d1a9078555a6a31f7a27a822649
sha2 - 29ce9453eed039917be06808fee8e4aec2864958

wine_DEV-1.1.31-i486.pet
md5 - 796c22e680cf1d3020a1fa29ad44cd52
sha1 - b951f764534011b96c814d2f6eba2d29fafbf17e

I am still using winefiles_no_tricks.pet [1] for adding winecfg and other helpful files. Mirrored here. I still do not know how to successfully uninstall it, so keep that in mind.

PostPosted: Thu 22 Oct 2009, 21:48    Post subject: Office 97 apps tested working with wine_lite-1.1.30  

Using installed: http://www.puppylinux.asia/members/T/444/wine_lite-1.1.30-i486.pxt on Puppy 4.3 frugal install (Dell CPx laptop; 450 MHz Pentium III with 256 MB RAM with 128 MB swap)

I've never used wine before, so can't say I really know if I'm doing things right.

Fed up with Abiword (though keeping it for docx files), I decided to try installing old MS Office 97 apps with wine. Tried just doing it out of the box by mounting the Office CD an entering: wine setup.exe
but the setup wouldn't complete properly.

Googled and read various articles about how to do it, but none of the combinations worked for me.

Finally, after clean install of wine did the following in order, which has worked for me:

[In rxvt console, entered and did the following]

1. winecfg
Set Default OS to Windows 98 (Apply then Exit)

2. Used winetricks (which I think I downloaded from elsewhere) to install dcom98

3. winecfg
Selected "Default" at the Application tab and then went to Libraries tab where I selected rpcrt4 and edited the entry to use the Wine builtin version (left all other stuff as it was).

4. Mounted my office97 CD and opened a terminal where the setup.exe file was.

5. In that terminal entered: wine setup.exe
Chose Custom installation and installed, Excel, Word and Powerpoint

It then all completed without error and reported installation as successful. Didn't use wine regedit or do anything else.

6. I then copied the icons for Excel, MSWord and Powerpoint from ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Microsoft Office/Office onto my desktop.

7. In Rox filemanager, right-click and Set Run Action for .exe files to: wine "$@"

The apps seem to work, and responsively (but it would be great to know from a wine usage "expert" if their is a better/improved way of setting apps like this up)!

Note: I don't use and didn't install Access. Some online installation installation guides I've read say that it wouldn't work with wine anyway.

G'day,
In the past, I also have installed MS 0ffice 97 from CD to wined Puppies. Word & Excel run very well - as long as I avoid using OO Calc to open and save an Excel file. Calc causes an error in the Save so that Excel then reports a "Disk Full" error if I use the Calc-saved file in Excel. Gnumeric can fix this problem - open & save the OO-affected .xls file and then it's OK in Excel.

I have (last night) successfully installed green_dome's Wine 1.1.31 Pet straight over existing Wine 1.1.20 and 1.1.28 versions in several Full Pups - so well done, green-dome! Already installed MS Office 97 and some other specialty Windows programs all started up as before.

I haven't yet created any updated sfs files of my updated .wine directory since installing 1.1.31 into the Fulls. I use these sfs for the Frugals. Doing this includes the MS Office 97, etc programs as well in just a single boot-at-Start-Up sfs. Adding in the .desktop menu files for Office97 from /usr/share/applications puts them on the drop-down menus, as well as dragging icons to the Pinboard/Desktop to start up a wine program.

Creating the .desktop files for these Windows programs was a bit tricky - finding the right paths and icons for Windows remains a 'pain' (or 'pane'?).

And if all this is still OK, I can then create from a full install, a Pet of the latest Wine plus my MS programs, to make adding all this to the next new Puppy just a single Petget from my data partition.

On the bad side, MS Office 2002 doesn't install for me, at least for the older wines. I'll try 1.1.31 soon.

PostPosted: Sat 24 Oct 2009, 03:03    Post subject: office 97 under wine: true type fonts?  

Though MSword 97 works fine for me over wine, it doesn't "look" very nice. I added a Times New Roman true type font from microsoft core ttf's into ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/Fonts and it appears in the font choices okay. However, it doesn't render very prettily on the X GUI. But Abiword (under Puppy 4.3) renders all fonts very nicely.

So my question is... how can I make the fonts render nicely on the X screen when running MS apps (such as Office 97 word) over wine (even the fonts in the word menu bars don't render very nicely). Or can it not be done as yet?

don't ask me where but there is a reg file to add via regedit that makes wine use antialiasing so smoothing the fonts.

Thanks greatly for that vovchik.

Fantastic. Makes all the difference in the world.

But why on earth aren't these reg values incorporated in wine by default I wonder?

because some like a terminal world for their computors and feel such frills are unecessary

Might be worth trying one of the free Windows OS versions of Softmaker Office over wine:
