Certificates in applications run in wine

Hello people :)

I have an application that needs a certificate to run.
How to import these? It doesn't seem to be enough place them inside
/usr/share/ca-certificates and run update-ca-certificates..

Does anyone know of maybe an easy windows cmd tool that I can run
under wine to easily import the certificate maybe?

Thanks in advance!

Change wineprefix after brlcad installation

$ apt-cache policy wine
  Installed: 1:1.7.26-0ubuntu1~ppa1

I have a bit of an odd problem; a short while back I installed brlcad
(<http://brlcad.org/> (brlcad_7.24.2-0_amd64.deb). I later purged
brlcad. However I now notice that my wineprefix seems to have been set to:
(note the ':' colon after .wine)

and I can't seem to change it back to ~/.wine

I've checked my .bashrc:
export WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.wine
my /etc/environment:

Windows registry is also showing brlcad in \Software\Wine\MenuFiles

wine-1.7.24 and steam: the game does not start


I am on wine-1.7.24 [1] with Steam [2] installed.
No problem with Steam: I can sign-in and download games.
But after this, when I click on the "play" button, nothing happens (the game does not start).
The trace of "$ wine Steam 1>&2 2>/tmp/steam.txt" is here: http://pastebin.com/ZG664ceE
Do you see something strange?

Thank you.
Best regards.

Gdb doesn't respond to a commands

I have a problem is that I am develop an application for Windows(under
GNU/Linux, of course), and I can't find a way to debug it. I have tried
different things, and finally come to a conclusion that most comfortable
way would be is to use gdb.exe from Windows version of MinGW..
The problem is that when I am launched the gdb.exe under wine, and try to
enter something, it doesn't respond to any of a commands that I am
entering, with exception of "Ctrl-z" and "Ctrl-c" keys. Have someone an
idea what to do?

How to compile MFC for the winelib

Hi wine developers,

I am a newbie of winelib, and I only experienced winemaker --no-mfc 
HelloWin32.dsp, it is simple WIN32 API testcase for CreateThread.

But I want to compile the MFC based application, such as GDIPlus based 
ActiveX https://github.com/xiangzhai/gdiplusplot

So I googled with wine compile MFC, it only shown litthe result such as 

Please someone give me some advice, thanks a lot!

PS: I only downloaded illegal VC6, but I will not redistribute it ;)

Nexus: The Jupiter Incident demo crashes at startup - confirmation needed


There is the 10th anniversary of "Nexus: The Jupiter Incident" and
wanted to play it again. Unfortunately both GOG version as well as a
demo crashes at startup (with both nexus_DX8.exe and nexus_DX9.exe).
Nexus seems to work fine with Wine [1] in the past and I wonder if it is
a repression in Wine or something with my system/hardware.

I have a laptop with "Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor
Family Integrated Graphics Controller" (so probably Intel HD 3000/2000),
but this game is from 2004 and I played with it on GeForce 2 MX which
much less powerful than mentioned Intel HD.
Selinux was switched into permissive mode.
wine-1.7.18-1.fc19.x86_64 (from the official Fedora repository)

1. Do you have any idea what could be a problem (backtrace [3])?
2. Could someone check Nexus demo [2] to verify that the game
crashes/works fine?

New research, a new funding tool! Measuring if Moon Gravity Effects Grape Berries

Hello wine-users,

We, David and Catarina have started to carry out new research in/on
winemaking. And we also want to test if crowdfunding is an option to fund
scientific research.

Re: the winemaking, we want to verify a very simple hypothesis: if the moon
effects the quality of grapevine berries, just like it effects high tides
and low tides.

Sounds esoteric, but it's actually a very scientific approach. (It is not a
joke, as you may assume =)

We want to carry out a simple experiment, measuring the circumference of
grapevine berries (its volume) and comparing the data with data on the
changing moon cycles and lunar gravities (basically with high tide and low
tide a long two moon cycles, from this mid June 2014).

To make this happen, we wish to buy a couple of precision dentrometers,
small devices that measure very small variations in grape berry size.
Because such dendrometers are quite expensive (around EUR 500 for a system,
see image below), we have put up a crowdfunding page
This page allows many people to sponsor us, with relatively small amounts.

We have created a short video to explain our project, at our crowdfunding

Should we not achieve our funding traget, you will not be charged. So all

winedbg set breakpoint on recv

Hello everyone,

I would like to set a breakpoint on the recv function. However, when I run the following command in winedbg:

Wine-dbg>break recv
Breakpoint 1 at 0x... recv in libc.so.6

it sets a breakpoint in libc, instead of setting the breakpoint in ws2_32 which would have the recv function
on windows (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms740121%28v=vs.85%29.aspx).

I am able to set breakpoints for WSARecv and WSARecvFrom:

Wine-dbg>break WSARecv
Breakpoint 2 at 0x... WSARecv in ws2_32

Wine-dbg>break WSARecvFrom
Breakpoint 3 at 0x... WSARecvFrom in ws2_32

How do I set a breakpoint on the recv function in ws2_32?

Thanks in advance!

Lightroom 4 in Ubuntu 12.04 with Unity2D

When I run Adobe Lightroom 4 in Wine in Ubuntu 12.04, it works fine with 
the standard Unity3D window manager, but when I use Unity2D, it is not 
possible to show the import photo dialog, Lightroom just hangs.

This seems to be some kind of window management issue. Anyone knows how 
to solve it?
