Up-to-date Wine for Statler/Debian Stable

I've spent the better part of last night and this morning compiling Wine [multiple times] so that I can have Spotify and Photoshop on my Crunchbang laptop.

With Wine, having the newest version is always important for compatibility reasons, so I've compiled it into a Debian package for your convenience. This is the first time I've ever packaged something, so please tell me if there's anything wrong or if I should be doing something differently. I believe I've compiled it with all the necessary dependencies.

Below you'll find the download link for the very latest version of Wine, 1.3.29, which just came out last night. Read the instructions on the page, as there is one small problem with the package. I suspect I haven't "Debianized" it correctly. Now enjoy, and don't hesitate to respond with any problems!

Someone here on the forums has quite a few versions compiled and put together in one post. big_smile I'll look for it. big_smile That said, it's always nice to have the most up to date WINE. big_smile

I'm liking your website.  It is very clean and organized big_smile  I wish I could do something like that.

I've looked all around the forums, and the newest version I could find was 1.1.42.

Thanks! It's a small site, so I do it all by hand. I'm glad you like it!

@soren121 - Here is the thread thevdude was referring to:

http://crunchbanglinux.org/forums/topic … v-release/

However it seems he has neglected to provide updates for some time so your packages are much appreciated! smile

Re: Up-to-date Wine for Statler/Debian Stable

Oh! I hadn't seen that, though I guess I wouldn't expect to find builds in a 'help installing Wine' topic.

His are built on Testing, though; mine are built for Stable.

NOTE: I've repackaged 1.3.29 to fix the /usr/local issue. A new version of the package is up on my site's download page that installs to the typical Debian areas. If you want the new package, purge the old one before installing it.

Yeah, there's that. D: I'm on Testing, though, so it works for me.

I still need to make programs not default to opening in WINE notepad and stuff. Right now I'm just uninstalling it since I don't use it.

Re: Up-to-date Wine for Statler/Debian Stable

To remove the annoying Notepad file associations due to WINE:

The gentle way:

nano ~/.local/share/applications/mimeinfo.cache

& comment out with a preceding # the following:

text/plain=wine-extension-ini.desktop;wine-extension-txt.desktop;

To remove all WINE file associations do the following (if you use MS Office under WINE you probably do not want to do this)

find ~/.local/share/mime -name '*wine*' -exec rm {} \;
rm ~/.local/share/applications/wine*.desktop
update-mime-database ~/.local/share/mime

1.3.30 Deb for Testing put up today too

It actually isn't hard to compile yourself, it just takes a bit of time (at least, it does on my netbook).

Re: Up-to-date Wine for Statler/Debian Stable

Some pointers for compiling on 64 bit (32 bit compatibility libraries are needed & a few symlinks may be missing) - if you are running #! stable you can use the "easier way" script to sort out the dependencies & missing symlinks

Re: Up-to-date Wine for Statler/Debian Stable

I'm having issues installing this. When I tried installing, it'd say it is conflicting with the installed version of Wine, so I did "sudo apt-get remove wine". Somehow, even though that appeased the error message in Gdebi, it would still fail to install (I can't copy-paste the error message ATM; all I can make out is that it is conflicting with "wine.desktop" or something)

And on top of that, when I do try starting wine, it seems I never really removed wine in the first place. How's that?

Re: Up-to-date Wine for Statler/Debian Stable

Try installing the old WINE again in Synaptic & then:

sudo apt-get remove --purge wine

Then try installing the new deb with Gdebi
