:? It looks like the issue is with the upstream package. It worked well...about a week ago. The wine package's dependencies are just wrong, e.g., it wants to remove vlc to install wine??? Uh, no.

This worked perfectly about a week ago. I am certain you recently upgraded all packages BEFORE trying to install Wine. Unfortunately, the ability to install Wine broke with them.

I'll try to figure out which packages need to be DOWNGRADED and will make another post explaining a fix if I can.

I just hate when this sort of thing happens upstream! :x

The offending package is xserver-xorg-core for which an upgrade came at the last minute right before I built 2.0.4. and after I tested the Install Wine script. :roll:

To fix, we have to downgrade xserver-xorg-core and for good measure make sure it is pinned to precise in the repo so it does not just get upgraded again next time you boot up and the Update manager runs.

Attached is a script,
Attachment:
wine-fix.sh [197 Bytes]
Downloaded 796 times


It will do all this for you. The directions that follow assume you are booted in to XFCE and are new to all this.

1. Download the attached file, wine-fix.sh
2. Right-click on it and go to Properties and then select the Permissions Tab and tick the box "Allow this file to run as a program"
3. Right-click over wine-fix and click "Copy Path to Clipboard"
4. Hit F1 on your keyboard to call Guake terminal
5. Type
Code:
sudo

6. Hit the space key once ater typing sudo and then in the space you just made at the cursor blink right-click and select "Paste" and hit the Enter key on your keyboard
7. Go through the prompts

Now you can run Install Wine from the menu or install it any other way you choose. :ugeek:

Since this is a quite ugly bug I'll release uberstudent-2.0.4:1-desktop-amd64.iso, already finished building and testing tonight, this Monday afternoon, about 10 hours from now. I gotta get some sleep right now. ;)

I would have loved to have Wine pre-installed, but on a 64-bit Linux system Wine requires installing over 500MB of libraries. :shock: Too big!

Those menu entries disappear fine for me. If your processor is not of the fast sort, I can see how they may not disappear, or will not do so right away because they are cached. Maybe that's what happened.

In general, to remove or add any menu entry you want or don't want, right-click over the Applications Menu and go to Properties > Edit Menu and use the alacarte dialog that opens.
