Download Full Package Of Winetricks And Fonts To Remove Checksum Mismatch Error

While trying to install allfonts from winetricks, I got a sha checksum mismatch error and soon I started fixing them manually. In order to make it easier for the wine users out there, I've slightly edited(changed the sha checksums) the winetricks file and packaged the font files.

You can download the package from HERE.

After downloading the file, unzip the file and then copy winetricks to /usr/bin/winetricks as below:

cp -f winetricks /usr/bin/winetricks

Now copy all the fcontents of dotcache/winetricks directory to ~/.cache/winetricks/

Now re-run the winetricks and install the allfonts. This time, you'll not get any error. I hope this helps :)

Fix Counter Strike Sound Problem Under WINE [How To]

I've been playing counter strike for a while through wine and so far, most of it works well. With getting more and more better with the game, I've learnt the importance of sound in this game. Unfortunately, the sound was not working properly and with some experiments, I've found the solution for me. I hope it also works for you.

By default, my wine's audio is configured to use ALSA driver with the settings as below:

Now, you need to edit the settings to match as in the following image.

After changing the audio configuration, click on Apply and then restart Counter-strike. I guess this will work for you as well.

Installing Adobe Photoshop CS5 In Ubuntu [How To]

In this tutorial, I will guide you through how to install and fully run Adobe Photoshop CS5 without any errors. We will be installing the Adobe Photoshop CS5 Portable version available for free in internet.

After downloading the installer for Adobe Photoshop CS5 Portable, you will have to first chmod the exe file so that it can be executed.

chmod +x Photoshop_Portable_12.0_en-fr-de-es-it-ru-zh-tw.paf.exe

Now, run the installer and the photoshop installation will complete without any errors. The problem with this portable photoshop cs5 installation is that it will install correctly but might produce the runtime error complaining about the incorrect loading of C runtime environment. The error you are likely to encounter is similar to something below:

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library

Runtime Error!

Program C:\PhotoshopPortable\PhotoshopPortable.exe

An application has made an attempt to load the C runtime library incorrectly.
Please contact the application's support team for more information

To fix this error, I copied all the files from WinSxS folder from my windows XP OS to the wine's C:\windows\WinSxS\. For this, copy all the files of WinSxS folder to USB and then to your Ubuntu OS(or if you are on VM like me, copy paste via the Virtual Shared folders feature). Now, go to Applications - Wine - Browse C: Drive and then navigate to Windows - WinSxS folder. Paste all the WinSxS contents you just copied from windows OS to this folder. See the screenshots below if you are confused from where to copy and where to paste:

Now try to run photoshop portable and you will probably face the error as below:

Could not complete your request Unable to initialize windowing system. Terminating.

Now, go to Applications - Wine - Configure Wine and then from the Applications tab, click on Add Application and add the photoshop portable's executable located at $HOME/.wine/dosdevices/c:/PhotoshopPortable/App/PhotoshopCS5. After adding application, select Windows XP from Windows Version dropdown list. Click on Apply and now your photoshop CS5 portable should work without any error in Ubuntu.

I hope this helps. :)
