Re: Need help with Play on Linux

Here's some stats about the computer I'm running Play on Linux with:

OS: stretch 64bit
CPU: Intel® Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz × 2
RAM:  2.0 GiB
Graphics: Intel® 945G (built-in video on the motherboard)
I think I have located the driver for this video card but I'm not sure how to install it. I tried to install it as a regular program, but the setup program says that my computer does not meet the requirements to install it.

How do you install drivers into Play on Linux?

I just added i386 to dpkg and installed wine32. This seemed to resolve a lot of problems.

I successfully got the installer for a windows app to run. However it did not install correctly...
I'm trying to install Spotify client.

I installed "mono-complete" and "mono-complete:i386" but the installer still could not find mono.
So I had the play on Linux installer install mono.

It complained that I do not have "wine-gecko" installed. I cannot seem to resolve this.

Spotify says that it could not find WINHTTP.dll and won't run.

However, I did successfully manually install and run this software with default wine... although it doesn't require a lot of stuff to run. (It will run in DOS apparently) It's an audio spectrum analyzer.

Also, on the play on Linux main window, the capture plugin gives me this error:

01/25/19 09:03:52 - [main] Fatal: Please install alsa-base

However, alsa-base is not available in stretch.

The attached log file is for Spotify. It doesn't say it in the file, but I am getting an error message that it cannot find WINHTTP.dll.

First, are you using Stretch, or testing/sid?

Did you add the i386 architecture to dpkg?

# dpkg --add-architecture i386
# apt update

You will then need to reinstall wine, and possibly your drivers. If you
are using Nvidia graphics, you *definitely* need to reinstall your
drivers and the proprietary drivers.

# apt install wine wine32 wine64 libwine libwine:i386 fonts-wine

I would also consider installing wine from backports, or directly from
WineHQ. Details on how to install from WineQH are on the WineHQ website.
