  2. I dont know how you got this to work, I get as far as entering credentials and then it freezes. Will this also work in 11.10?
    Thanks

  3. Hi Raj,
    Could you please add a tutorial about how to set up amibroker using wine 1.3 ? Thank you

  4. Dear Doji (March 5, 2012 (5 weeks ago) at 12:42 am)

    Same Problem here. Even installing winetricks and further installing ‘winetrcks allfonts’ and ‘winetricks gdiplus’ doesnt help at all. 🙁

    Any hints somebody?

  5. Hi Raj,
    I think you may have forgotten one step. Doji and Brubaker both mention a freezing problem. I encountered the same problem. It is fixed by going to Wine>Configure Wine>Graphics. Then untick the box that says ‘Allow the window manager to decorate the windows’ then click ‘Apply’ then OK. The freezing stops. Wine has been running brilliantly on my Linux machine for about two weeks now.

  6. Doesn’t work at all – only shows a box: “For installation, windows XP or higher is required!”
