I have a similar setup. In my case, the far installer worked out of the box:t-rex wrote:Ok, I have Ubuntu linux and latest wine installed. I never used wine before so could you please tell how exactly do I run FAR under wineconsole? I might look into the linux native files execution - I think that I know why it might happen.
Installed far into virtual partition. Now, try to execute it:
wineconsole --backend=user ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Far/Far.exe
(there is a space between user and ~)
If it works, great, in my case it hanged (or it might just have been too slooow -- too impatient to wait), and so did winecfg and
It turns out that there are some issues with wine and network interface,
I haven't exactly figured out yet, but it seems that one needs a loopback to be set up on you card, so that you can connect to 127.0.0.1. (at least it
seem to cure it in my case)
For now, we just turn it off: ifconfig ethX down, where X is your interface number. Try to run it again. If it runs, you can turn the interface back on, and everything will still work.
By default linux root partition is drive Z, and drive C is mapped to
you can setup additional partitions via winecfg.
You can change font by rightclicking on the console screen.
In my case there were only two fonts available, and none of them
have correct psuedographics. This was cured by installing all fonts from my windows directory. (Then i used courier). Analgously some important hotkeys are intercepted by X, which had to be turned off...
I am still not able to execute linux programs from far shell, because wine, while can execute linux elf files, needs them to have 'exe' extension... Weird, i don't now how to change that.
Hope that helps, let me know.
