Hi shinobar,

Thank you for the instructions. I tried them and they successfully enabled me to open both an installed xp program and a portable xp program via menu entries. There was a slight delay in opening the installed program, less than a second; none noticeable for the portable application. More than a fair trade off for the advantages your application provides. Thank you again.

PostPosted: Sun 09 Mar 2014, 19:46    Post subject: winetricks in Portable-wine? (Solved, sort of)  

Hi again,

Does Portable Wine include winetricks?

If it does, how do you call it?

if it doesn't, how do you install it?

mikesLr

Edit: winetricks is merely a bash-script which in Puppy versions of wine that include it, and in winetrick pets is usually (always?) located in the /usr/sbin folder. The maintainer of the current version of the script --it can be downloaded as a text file and/or copied to a blank bash-script file-- suggests placing it in the /usr/bin folder. To do either in Portable-wine, first right-click its icon and select open to view its contents. Then right click the SFS and select mount. Once mounted, files can be copied anywhere in its structure. Unmount when finished. So it should be easy to install both winetricks and an appropriate desktop file to create a menu entry.
I have not, however, done this because currently winetricks can only be run via a terminal as the GUI is broken. The break is not in winetricks but rather appears to be a problem relating to zenity which the winetricks script calls to generate the GUI. My exploration substituting various scripts showed their interchangability, but failed to produce a working GUI in any current Puppy. The last functioning winetricks GUI was in Lupu, using a wine-pet specifically built for it, wine-1.3.x, AFAIR. That problem is not unique to Puppy Linux, and AFAIK has not, as yet, been solved elsewhere. I've posted about the problem in the User's sub-Forum. In the absence of a GUI, winetricks would require too steep a learning curve for my limited need of it.

UPDATE:
#20140315: fix again on vfat, winetrics, set PATH

wine-portable(p4) works on Puppy-431 and later:
wine-portable-1.6.2-2-p4.tar.gz (stable)
wine-portable-1.7.14-1-p4.tar.gz (develop)
http://shino.pos.to/party/bridge.cgi?puppy/opt/

wine-portable(precise) works on Precise-Puppy and later:
wine-portable-1.6.2-2-precise.tar.gz (stable)
wine-portable-1.7.14-1-precise.tar.gz (develop)

PostPosted: Sun 16 Mar 2014, 20:37    Post subject: Why two version?  

Hi Shinobar,

I find Portable Wine very useful. Thanks again for its development.
Currently, I have the wine-portable-1.6.2.1-precise on /mnt/home. As all my frugal puppy installs are to the same partition, all recognize the same partition as /mnt/home. wine-portable is registered in upup raring and, as I've mentioned earlier on this thread, I've been able to both install XP applications and run portable xp applications, both types with with separate menu listings thanks again to your advice.
I opened to this thread intending to report my success in installing e-Sword, which (if I recall correctly) has recently been a problem under recent puppies and/or wine versions. I discuss the technique here, http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=765355#765355, During that discussion I "plugged" your application, commenting on its advantage when running several puppies, but also cautioning that you've created two versions, one for precise and later, the other for earlier puppies. Calling up this thread, I discovered that you've published new versions.

So to get to the point: Why two versions? And particularly, will wine-portable-1.6..2-2-p4 function under precise and later pups? If so, what are the advantages of using wine-portable-1.6.2-2-precise in later pups?
The reason I ask isn't merely academic. On my /mnt/home partition I have frugal installs of precise, raring and slacko, but also Lupu, Saluki and Carolina. So it might be the best use of my time and my computer's hard-drive space if I were able to use and register wine-portable-1.6.2-2-p4 in all my Pups.

Thanks in advance,

mikesLr

I am not sure Laughing

wine-portable(p4) is based on the wine compiled on Puppy-431 by version2013. wine-portable(p4) has not all the dependencies but some. Maybe no problem for many applications.

wine-portable(precise) has the wine compiled on Precise Puppy 571JP and has all the dependencies. I am not sure in what case the wine-portable(precise) is superior than the wine-portable(p4).

Hi shinobar,

The only way to actually find out what works was to test.

Edit: Balance temporarily deleted: Being re-worked to provide a report of all my tests to date in a format easier to follow.

I may be stating the obvious for some people, but I'm just going to post this anyway, because I ran into this myself.

Winetricks will not work on portable Wine if it is installed on a non POSIX partition. So if the filesystem of your partition is vfat, it will not work.
This is because in the process of downloading and installing packages, winetricks will attempt to create folders called c:, and z: inside portable Wine.
Portable Wine is located outside of the Linux filesystem (because it's portable), and thus, inside the vfat filesystem, and the vfat filesystem does not allow, among other things, folder names with a colon.

It works fine on POSIX filesystems though.
