  1. Wine 0.9.43: weird error msg font ?

    Hi,

    When installing the photoalbum software from fotobuch.de (which at least
    initially seems to run), a few errors popped up during font installation in
    c:\windows\font. These error messages had a weird, alsmost unreadable font of
    some script type. Is there any way to fix this?

    Thanks , Mat Nieuwenhoven

    Umm, You're posting in a linux newsgroup, using a Newsreader for OS/2,
    with an error message, that's clearly for a windows program.

    Are you running linux? If so, which version. Are you trying to install
    the program under wine? If so, can you copy & paste the exact error
    message? Can you post the exact link to the download you're using
    to try and install?

    Perhaps newsgroup comp.emulators.ms-windows.wine would be a
    good place to ask. See you over there.

    Usually, I'm pretty good at noticing stuff like that. Guess I'm a bit
    off today .

    I'm using PMINews on OS/2 because so far I've not seen a newsreader on Linux
    that is as easy to use. For instance, organize subscribed newsgroups in
    grouplists per subject, even though they are from different news servers.

    Sorry, should have stated that. I'm running an up-to-date Mandriva 2007.1
    free, upgraded from 2007 non-free (bought Powerpack DVD). Wine 0.9.43
    downloaded via winehq, uninstalled older wine (0.9.42), verified old wine
    files gone, installed new wine. PC is a Athlon XP2400 with 1G RAM, video card
    is an Sapphire (ATI) 9000. Screen resolution 1600x1200. 2G free on the /home
    disk partition where I am trying to install.

    I am using the program Designer.exe available from
    http://download.fotobuch.de/designer_setup.exe . Installed with "wine
    designer_setup.exe" from a console.
    The installation of the photoalbum software complained with an unreadable
    error about the font folder, however file it was trying to install did show
    up in the font folder eventually (after retrying the installation enough
    times). Just an wild guess: the font folder was named 'font', while the
    installer showed 'Font'. I did rename the folder to 'Font' just to be sure
    somewhere along the process. Is Wine case-sensitive to folder names?
    I've retried the install several times, and there error messages got less and
    less. I don't know how to create a dump from this error box. However, the
    same weird font shows up when starting winecfg from a console prompt. Below
    you find the results of the wine errors from starting both winecfg and
    Designer from the console.

    I didn't know it existed, should have searched for a wine newsgroup first.
    I'll repost my reply do David Hodgins with crosspost. I thought first of
    something Mandriva-specific when I saw the weird font (such as a missing
    system font that Wine expects).

    No idea why the error was unreadable, but I found the cause of the
    error itself; see http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9382
    for a description and a fix. If all goes well, the fix will be in
    the
    next release of Wine by month's end.
    Thanks for the problem report!

    I believe I am seeing the effect from bug 8983
    (http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=8983) . Winecfg is much less readable
    than the examples in this bug. I (Mandriva) is probably missing a font.
