HowTo / Notes

How to get Army Builder 3.1c to run on Wine

Unfortunately, Army Builder (AB) doesn't run with standard Wine binaries, as a bug prevents anything but the splash screen from loading. However, there is a patch to the Wine source available that fixes this issue. However, the patch isn't yet included in the main source tree, as there are apparently other issues with this patch on other applications. However, I haven't noticed anything other than another bug that prevents the mouse from clicking on the buttons in the applications. What? I hear you say, how can I then use AB? Well, it is a bit cumbersome, but it works for me, and I'd rather use this method and get my snazzy AB3.1c running than using old AB2.2.

The mouse pointer can't click the buttons, but they get focus, so a simple press of the Enter key activates the button. So, press with pointer, press Enter, a small extra step, but if you feel it's not worth it, either use 2.2 or wait for someone to fix this issue as well, if not, read on intrepid adventurer :)

  1. Make sure you have an environment for compiling software, such as the automake, patch and gcc. If you are missing any dependencies, the Wine configure script (step 5) will likely tell you what it is, and you can install it from your distro of choice's package manager.
  2. Download a copy of the Wine source from and extract it to a location of your home (like /home/user/src )
  3. open a terminal window, like xterm or konsole, and "cd" to the directory you unpacked the Wine sources in
  4. Download the patch ( and save it in the Wine source folder. Nowrun the following command:

    patch -p1 < filename_of-patch

  5. Run the configure script


    Now, you must decide if you want this wine to live where it normally does in your distro, and first uninstall any wine package you may have installed there before you do this, or if like me, you like to have this "testing" version in, say, /opt. If so, you can add a "--prefix=/opt/wine" to the configure script, and it will safely tuck itself away there, letting you keep the original version as it is.
  6. make depend

  7. make

  8. make install

    This step has to be done as root, as you install the files to your desired location.

There, you should be all set, remember to call the right wine version if you installed it in /opt, and enjoy AB3.1c

If there are any problems with this HOWTO (my first), please contact me and we'll work out any problems.
