Post MEPIS 8.0 Community Repo: The Wine Thread
Update 7 Sept 2011: Wine 1.3.27 is now in testing CR. It requires and should autoinstall a newer wine-gecko based on Firefox 6 (wine-gecko-1.3.0)

Update 13 July 2011: Latest release 1.3.24 now in testing, 1.3.23 in main.

update 14 June 2011: 1.3.22 now in main testing.

After a hiatus, new builds of the development branch of Wine, 1.3, are now available in the testing repository, as well as a previous version in the main CR. Currently we have 1.3.18 in testing, please let us know how it's working if you try it.

Thanks!

Works OK for the only app I use Quicken 2009 Premier.

I did get one error when installing

Code:
debconf: (Unable to load QtCore -- is libqtcore4-perl installed?)


libqtcore4-perl is installed.

Have you tried installing the 'dev package/s for that pearl package or pearl itself? Sometimes that makes a difference.

I have not checked if they are installed.

Edit: I do not see a dev package and perl is installed. However there are many perl support packages. I do not want to install all of them as most, if any, undoubtedly do not have any bearing on the issue.

Post Re: MEPIS 8.0 Community Repo: The Wine Thread
There's another thread where the poster says that message appears on all the installs for any package. I don't see it, but I have libqt4gui-perl also installed. Kmathern suggested running

Code:
su -c 'dpkg-reconfigure -plow debconf'


and setting to use readline by default, since that's what Synaptic falls back to anyway.

Bump:

Bump: Wine 1.3.21 is in the main testing repo. New in this release:

8- and 16-bit bitmap formats in the DIB engine.

Bump: 1.3.27 in main, 1.3.28 in testing. 1.3.28 actually has a visible change in wineconfig in that it has automagic audio driver selection, so any choice between alsa, oss, etc. is gone. Let's see if this works.
