Linux Daily

Daily usage of linux, raw style

For future reference, more than anything else really, if you’re trying to use winetricks to install something anf you get an error similar to:

Note: command ‘cabextract -q –directory=/home/ceno/.wine/drive_c/winetrickstmp /home/ceno/.winetrickscache/arial32.exe’ returned status 127.  Aborting.

You need to install the package cabextract .

And if you notice, a couple of lines before that error it reads

Cannot find cabextract.  Please install it (e.g. ‘sudo apt-get install cabextract’ or ‘sudo yum install cabextract’).

So yeah, this whole post is stupid. More stupid than that is that I never got winetricks to work properly because I’d never noticed that before. Me stupid.hm.

To install winetricks and run winetricks

wget http://kegel.com/wine/winetricks
winetricks
