I'm unable to use wine to run quicken because gecko is missing.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.run "wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Quicken/qw.exe"
"Wine Gecko Installer" window complaining that gecko is missing.
quicken should start.
Note: in Oct 2009 I was able to run quicken, but have not tried to do so since then.
My amd64 system with kernel 2.6.39-gentoo-r2 has wine-1.3.28 installed.
wine's flags are X alsa cups dbus gecko jpeg lcms mp3 ncurses opengl oss perl png samba ssl threads truetype win32 win64 xml -capi -custom-cflags -fontconfig -gnutls -gphoto2 -gsm -gstreamer -hal -hardened -ldap -nls -openal -opencl -scanner -test -v4l -xcomposite -xinerama)
Directory /usr/share/wine/gecko has:
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 13835776 Sep 17 09:44 wine_gecko-1.3-x86_64.msi
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 13609984 Sep 17 09:44 wine_gecko-1.3-x86.msi
What's the exact message ?
If you i.e. removed 'z:' drive (one that should link into /), well, wine doesn't really like that - in most conditions, it works just fine without it, but every now and then it acts odd.
Thw "Wine Gecko Installer" window's message is:
Wine could not find a Gecko package which is needed for applications embedding HTML to work correctly. Wine can automatically download and install it for you.
Note: it is recommended to use your distribution's packages instead. See http://wiki.winehq.org/
As reported earlier, both the x86 and x86_64 versions of the wine_gecko .msi file are present.
The message says "wine ... can install it for you", but this doesn't happen.
I've also tried to do the install by running the following:
wine start wine_gecko-1.3-x86_64.msi
msiexec /i c:\\windows\\system32\\wine_gecko-1.3-x86_64.msi
Both commands result in the following message:
The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. This can occur if you are running Windows in safe mode, or if the Windows Installer is not correctly installed. Contact your support personnel for assistance.
I've found a workaround. After renaming ~/.wine and starting wine, wine_gecko was properly installed. I don't know why this worked or was needed, but am glad that it did work. It would be interesting to know why the ebuild didn't handle what was needed.
same here, but I don't want to delete .wine right now. the gecko package gets downloaded by the ebuild but wine complains at startup that it isn't installed.
This is btw happening on wine-1.5.10, .11 as well as -9999 currently.
I've found multiple entries in
of previous gecko versions, I have no idea if deleting those might help...
I think this was fixed upstream. Please reopen if issue recurs.
