Despite the fact that Wine 1.1.13 marked as development version I
strongly suggest you to use exactly this release. Because in 1.0.1
there are a lot of visual artefacts, however functionality is stable.
Since Database Designer for PostgreSQL
uses Microsoft Data Access Components for its Universal and MS Access
Database Reverse Engineering we must install appropriate
redistributable runtime libraries:
$sh winetricks jet40 mdac28
jet40 - MS Jet 4.0 Service Pack 8
mdac28 - MS MDAC 2.8: Microsoft ODBC drivers, etc.
After this we already can use application with its full
functionality. However, fonts used in Designer appear ridged. To fix
this we need to install Microsoft Core Fonts (Arial, Courier, Times
etc.), but we need to make sure cabextract utility is present in our system.
In case of Ubuntu we can use the following command to install it:
$sudo apt-get install cabextract
For other distributions it is better to check manuals. To install core fonts we run:
By the way, you have a good chance to get a free Personal License.
Provide some great examples of using Database Designers and results you
got under Wine, and receive a license key for free! If you publish them
as an article (in your blog, for example), this is only a big plus.
Requirements: created with MicroOLAP software, step by step description
(How did you make it?), screenshots of the steps taken.
Write a review of MicroOLAP software and publish it on Wine
Application Database web-site. You will get a free Personal License key
as a reward.
