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

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 :slight_smile: 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.

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)

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.
