G'day David,

It may be that simple , it is my luck to beat my head in to the wall over incredible simple things.
Thanks for the tip, I was unaware that it should be a lower case and "Program Files" in case of a space.

Thanks

Hmm odd one...well cloning from ubuntu might be the way. I have cloned from windows before...it depends on how much the registry is used. Indeed the registry is not always written to as intended.
I assume you tried to cd to the program folder to eliminate that one

mike

does it use 3d?opengl installed or one of the other soft dependancies...ldap.

Hi Mike:

Never assume anything I might have done, I am very green at Linux.:}

According to the guys that did this the creator of E-Sword made it basically stand alone and have had no registry issues.
Our Australian mate noticed the path was in the wrong format,that drive c should not be capitalized and that Program Files should be in quotation marks but I do not know the commands to correct it.

I changed to the .Wine directory but it said no such command when I went to Program Files\E-sword\esword.exe. .
Could you tell me how to bring up the path in a text editor to correct the format?

Thanks!

Hmmm if you navigate in rox to where the program is then press '/' the path will show up at the bottom...you can copy it from there but remember as there will be spaces enclose it in " " eg

Code:
cd "/initrd/mnt/dev_save/apps/wine/drive_c/Program Files/NCH Swift Sound/Switch/"
wine "/initrd/mnt/dev_save/apps/wine/drive_c/Program Files/NCH Swift Sound/Switch/switch.exe"


wine will also accept \(as \\) and is not case sensitive like windows since it is a windows emulator which is not an emulator.

spaces can also be escaped ie
program\ files
can be used instead of
"program files"

end of lesson 3.2..you may go to the library for study..

Perhaps you mean e-sword.exe instead of esword.exe

There appear to be several tips in the appdb to get the program working. I have tried a few tips, and at least the program starts on my computer, I do not know about it fully functioning with all features though.

Actually no but when I checked the last attempt it the past is very different.

it was .Wine/Program Files/E-Sword/esword.exe and now it is
.Wine/Program Files/e-Sword/ {ALL} and the executable is e-Sword.exe and the various default modules are there.

I was unable to find the program at WineHQ, thanks for the link!
It gave me a fatal error but when I dis another search it found it, go figure?

Thanks-I will try again!

Thanks!

I am a slow learner but I think I am beginning to understand what I did,
I changed the path and it said it could not execute the binary and it seems obviously I managed the last go round to copy the binaries instead of installing them. Once I uninstall for the umpteenth time I think it will work.

Thanks for the lessons , I need them!

What is interesting is the program is much faster in Ubuntu than Windows , I thought it would be otherwise.

Dear abushcrafter,

When it comes to Wine - where development is very active and salient improvements come with each version nearly every two weeks - it does not make sense to recompile the readily available stable version (1.01), which is at least a year old. This page explains why: http://www.winehq.org/news/.

With kind regards,
vovchik

Here is my attempt at compiling wine 1.1.37.

wine-1.1.37-i486.pet (release 1) | mirror
wine_DEV-1.1.37-i486.pet (release 1) (development package) | mirror
wine_DOC-1.1.37-i486.pet (release 1) (documentation package) | mirror

I installed these packages before compiling:
jack-audio-connection-kit-0.116.1-i486.pet
jack-audio-connection-kit_DEV-0.116.1-i486.pet
xorg_xorg_full_dri-7.3.pet
xorg_xorg_full_dri_DEV-7.3.pet

For help with Gecko, look here

I use the console to install packages from winetricks. For help with this I use
Code:
winetricks -h
[source]

my graphics card is a Nvidia GeForce 8400GS, so I install the 'NVIDIA-190.42-k2.6.30.5-1.pet' from this post.

Dear green_dome,

That was quick. Thanks very much. Installed in 3.01 and 4.10 and works like a charm.

With kind regards,
