    Default Install BibleWorks 9 in Ubuntu Linux with Wine

    I'm not sure this is the correct forum for this, but I thought it might be helpful to document how I got BibleWorks 9 running reliably in Ubuntu Linux using Wine. Rather than putting a long post up here, I have a blog entry that may be useful:

    Hi there,

    You should be able to cut this down to a few less steps. After adding the repository, if you do:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install wine1.7-amd64 wine1.7-i386:i386 winetricks wine-gecko2.24 wine-gecko2.24:i386 wine-mono4.5.2
    it should work fine. I am running exactly the same setup (Ubuntu Saucy 64bit) without the need for IE7 32bit, thanks to the wonders of gecko! Also, mono takes care of the .net portion of some Windows Applications. Beware, WINE 1.7 is the Beta release, but I currently have BW9 running flawlessly using Wine 1.7.16, and am loving it so far.

    Hope this helps
