Thread: Wine-doors not starting

    Default Wine-doors not starting

    Hello

    So basically I can't get wine-doors to start. I searched the forums and found this: Wine-doors not starting - openSUSE Forums

    I get the same error message in the terminal for wine-doors:

    PCLinux:~ # wine-doors
    Started logging session
    /usr/share/wine-doors/src/utils.py:7: DeprecationWarning: the md5 module is deprecated; use hashlib instead
    import md5
    Checking wine drive: /root/.wine/
    sh: --version: command not found
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/usr/bin/wine-doors", line 137, in <module>
    ui.winedoors = ui.WineDoorsGUI()
    File "/usr/share/wine-doors/src/ui.py", line 1106, in __init__
    self.tree = PackTree( self.window['tv_packlist'], self.window )
    File "/usr/share/wine-doors/src/ui.py", line 597, in __init__
    packlist.UpdateAll()
    File "/usr/share/wine-doors/src/packlist.py", line 311, in UpdateAll
    self.TidyPacks()
    File "/usr/share/wine-doors/src/packlist.py", line 318, in TidyPacks
    wine.WineVersion().split(".") >= pack['versions'][0][0][1].split("."):
    AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'split'

    The workaround too is posted:

    There's someting wrong in /usr/share/wine-doors/src/preferences.py
    this script can't detect "winebinary" properly
    make the detection of wine-version (in wine.py) fail

    Workaround:
    manually add "winebinary" value in
    ~/.wine/wine-doors/preferences.xml
    <winebinary>/usr/bin/wine</winebinary>
    Since I'm almost a complete linux noob would someone care to explain what exactly I should do here? Should I add this line somewhere to the preferences.py file or perhaps make a preferences.xml file?

    Thanks a lot.

    Default Re: Wine-doors not starting

    You really don't need it
    Just use wine as it is

    run winecfg

    Install with: wine ./Setup.exe
    (where Setup.exe is the name of the installer, replace as appropriate)
    Leap 15.1_KDE
    My Articles Was I any help? If yes: Click the star below

    Oh ok, I'm planning on installing Microsoft Office 2007 (stupid docx format), I'll see if it works and let you know. The wine website says it should run without problems.

    Thanks for your help.
