Default Re: GURPS Character Assistant under Wine for Linux

The problem only seems to extend to the 53. The 73 has no reports of that particular issue. Kinda aggravating, I like the machine itself very much.

My girlfriend was looking at one so I'll keep that in mind.

No luck so far on the GCA/Unity question, I've been battling installing Windows 8 in VirturalBox anc getting ready for a new job. If Bruno or someone is willing to help I'd be grateful.

I usually type:
Code:
> WINEPREFIX="/explicit/path/to/your/directory/" wine gca4setup.exe

> WINEPREFIX="/explicit/path/to/your/directory/" wine gca*patch*exe

> WINEPREFIX="/explicit/path/to/your/directory/" wine gca*data*exe
Then follow the wizards each time. The console will display a lot of debugging info each time, but it supposed to.

I've never had any joy getting GCA working under Wine, but it's entirely happy to run under VirtualBox.

I've done that, too, but running the entire VM stack AND the entire Windows OS for a program that runs inside of 60MB is overkill for me. Once Wine was actually useful (somewhere in the 0.9x.x phase) I started using it for GCA.

Hello! I've installed GCA and run under Wine as you recomended in this thread. Everything works great, but there is only one problem - "Quik View" folder works with bugs (see the screenshot below):

How can i fix that or it's "normal" for GCA running under Wine?

You need to set up a printer. The same thing happens in Windows if no printer is set up.

Install the Cups-PDF virtual printer. That way, you can have GCA create PDFs for you!
