Using WINE for Linux

Running SSuite Office on Linux and Ubuntu!To update your WINE to the latest version on your Linux system, follow this link here  -  WINE Updates and Downloads

We tested Wine (both the stable and the development version) in Ubuntu 14.04 Beta 2 LTS. As you would expect, we didn't find any problems with it. You can get Wine from Ubuntu Software Center, but it's an older version. To get the latest one just enter the following commands in a terminal (you will need to be root):

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wine

If you want the development version, then you need to change the last command to the following:

sudo apt-get install wine 2.9

This is the complete extent of the installation and most users won't have to go beyond this point for the Windows apps that they are running. There are of course exceptions and Wine might need some tweaking. If you open the Dash in Ubuntu and search for Wine, you will find an entry called Configure Wine.

Users can change a lot of things for Wine, but the most important entry is in the Applications tab, where you can choose what Windows system to “impersonate.” This is a very important option and the one that you will always change first when something is not working.

There are a number of other options in the configuration panel, but you should leave most of them alone, unless you follow some tutorial for a specific application or game. There is one other tab that warrants the user's attention, called Graphics.

One option in particular is very important, “Emulate a virtual desktop.” Unless you check this option and provide a valid resolution, Wine will try to start any software in full screen and, if something goes wrong, you might need to restart the computer.

If you define a resolution for the virtual desktop, any application will be confined to a window, which can be easily closed.

Another important aspect that you need to know is where the Wine folder can be found. It's usually in ~/home/.wine. If you open it you will find a very similar structure with the one used by Windows operating systems. It's also the folder where all the installed Windows apps are being stored.

How to run or install our applications on Linux

Type "wine setupssuite.exe" to install SSuite Office or any other SSuite software setup file. To run any of the applications, type the following: Type "wine wordgraph.exe" in the installation directory to run WordGraph, Accel, or any other application installed.

If the above steps don't work, then you may have to change the dlls to native usage. But before doing so, make sure you have the latest shell32.dll installed. If you need to, just copy and paste the file from any Windows NT or higher platform over the existing file on your Linux distribution.

After installing the software you must make sure you have copies of riched20.dll and ole32.dll in ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32 and add the following DLL overrides in 'wincfg' if necessary, open a terminal window and type $winecfg:

  • for Wordgraph.exe:
    ole32=native
    riched20=native
  • for Accel.exe:
    ole32=native
    riched20=native
    etc. for all the other applications too.

Type "wine wordgraph.exe" in the installation directory to run WordGraph.

Type "wine accel.exe" in the installation directory to run Accel.
etc. with all the other applications.

An alternate installation process for Linux

Running SSuite Office on Linux and Ubuntu!By default Windows applications are installed in /home/user/.wine. If you want to install your application in a different directory then you must use the WINEPREFIX variable.

If you want your application to be installed in /home/user/appname you must first create the directory:  $ mkdir appname

 

Now type the following command:  $ WINEPREFIX="/home/user/appname" wineprefixcreate

This will create a directory called /home/frank/appname. In this directory you will find a fake Windows drive and the Wine configuration files system.reg and user.reg.

Now type $ WINEPREFIX="appname" wine setup.exe to install the application.

If your application is installed in /home/frank/appname/drive_c/Program Files/app/appname.exe, you can run it by typing:

$ WINEPREFIX="/home/user/appname" wine ~/appname/drive_c/Program Files/app/appname.exe
