HowTo / Notes


­Make sure you operate on a clean WINEPREFIX (~/.wine)!

1. Prerequisite installation

You need a Win32 Java Runtime installed in WINEPREFIX (either JRE or JDK). Download it from Sun here.

2. Work around GUI glitches/problems

Winetricks will work around some problems.

$ wget

$ sh winetricks gecko corefonts

You need cabextract utility for winetricks corefonts step. Make sure it's installed locally.


$ sudo apt-get install cabextract


­$ sudo yum install cabextract

Error occurred during initialization of VM: Could not reserve enough space for object heap

Use the following workaround:

­­$ wine ./eclipse -vmargs -XX:AggressiveHeap
