    Adam, Thanks for the encouragement. We also have been waiting for *years* for this one, and as we support many mother-tongue Bible translators that use Linux but also www.sil.org has moved to Logos for their translation resources it has stood as the *primary* software tool not available for Linux for these users. Thanks go to @John Goodman and especially

    Bill, It seems that the .NET install somehow didn't finish correctly. If you are able can you try wasta-logos-setup again? The .NET install should finish before you are prompted for the Logos installation file, that is why I am a bit confused. Sorry I haven't seen this failure before, but I think you are getting close!

    [quote user="John Goodman"] Bill your problem is that the wine Windows Version is set too low for the Logos Installer. Not sure how that happened. I think you'll find it is set to winxp but you need min 7 for Logos to install. It might be you have to set it back to winxp for indexing to complete according to one bug report but we don't have that confirmed

    @purist: 32-bit will not upgrade to version 9 because there is no Logos 9 32-bit (we are going to be stuck on Logos 8 for 32-bit). Yes, you can NOT use sudo to run wasta-logos-setup because it is a user level process. I should make the error message more clear to restart without sudo. The wineserver message is "normal" but after some time it should

    [quote user="Al Graham"] Wine 5.20 is the version being used. Thanks again for your help. [/quote] Al, wasta-wine 5.20.0 has the missing dependency which leads to the crashing. So you need to upgrade to wasta-wine 5.20.1. Please let us know if you have upgraded to that new(est) version.

    Paul, using the wasta-logos-setup install, you can manually start the indexer this way: WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.wine-logos/ /opt/wasta-wine/bin/wine $HOME/.wine-logos/drive_c/users/$USER/Local\ Settings/Application\ Data/Logos/System/LogosIndexer.exe At this point I am not certain my indexing is complete.... it does seem to end in an error with some "deadbeef

    Hello everyone, I've updated the wasta-logos-setup process to use 32-bit wine 5.20-staging with the latest Logos 8 32-bit installer, 8.17.0.0014. With the wine updates and Logos updates it seems to run really well, with it only taking approximately 10-12 minutes to do a clean install from scratch (to install .NET 4.8, run the Logos installer, etc).

    @purist, I think I just replied to you on the Google Doc. But it may be getting stuck in either setting "ddr=gdi" or in "font smoothing", both of which are done after corefonts before installing Logos. As Jonathan reported, possibly a "ctrl + c" would work to cancel the hung process and it may continue with the install. In my reply I left a hint on

    I have uploaded wasta-logos-setup version 0.2.0 which adds the cabextract dependency, and also adds the wine 4.18 patch. So, at least for me on Ubuntu 18.04, with wine 4.18, everything appears to be working again. In the future, if wine updates it will break again. So I recommend you disable the winehq repository (Software Settings > Other Software

    Due to wine versions changing and overwriting the necessary patch, it was discussed to bundle wine with the patch as part of wasta-logos-setup. I have experimented with this and can make it work, BUT it adds 853MB of size to the package! I don't know of a smart way to bundle wine except for manually taking the entire /opt/wine-devel/ folder.

    I have just posted version 0.3.0 of wasta-logos-setup. It is a pretty big change in that various bits have been moved to other packages as previously discussed. So please test and report back, but note that it may introduce some bugs. Since it now uses our own patched version of wine, it does NOT assume any wine version is installed on your system.
