HowTo / Notes

Installing Microsoft TrueType core fonts

It's very important that you install the Microsoft TrueType core font package, otherwise many menus and dialogs won't display correctly (see for example bug 46244).

The following command can be used:

winetricks corefonts

Make sure a CUPS printer is installed

If setup WinOmega to send invoices via e-mail, be warned that this functionality in WinOmega is somewhat tied to the invoicing printing function, so even if you're not interested in physical printing, you will need Wine to recognize a valid printer in your system.

On Windows this is not an issue because modern versions come with a virtual printer installed (Microsoft XPS Document Writer), but on Wine you might need extra steps to ensure a printer is detected:

  1. If you don't have a physical printer, install the cups-pdf driver, which will "print" by generating PDF files in ~/PDF/.
    In Ubuntu or other Debian derivated distros simply use: sudo apt-get install cups-pdf to install the package cups-pdf driver.
  2. Make sure appropriate version of libcups2 is installed. This may need manual steps if you're running Wine on a 64-bit system (the CrossOver support wiki has some instructions which also apply to Wine).
Avoid Wine versions older than 1.7.5

It is recommended that you run WinOmega using Wine version 1.7.5 or newer (or more specifically, a Wine release that includes this commit).

When using older versions, selecting "Vista previa" inside the "Facturación -> Listados -> IVA" dialog results in various errors:

  • OLE error XXXXXXXX
  • Access violation at address XXXXXXXX in module 'winomega.exe'. Read of address YYYYYYYY.

Avoid Wine versions between 2.1 and 2.16

It is recommended that you avoid running WinOmega with Wine versions between 2.1 and 2.16.

For details see bug 44713.

WinOmega 11.00.09 or later is recommended

Depending on your system setup, it is possible that preview rendering of reports (for example selecting "Vista previa" inside the "Facturación -> Listados -> IVA" dialog) results in "Metafile is not valid" error, or sometimes in Access Violation errors.

This problem is not a bug in Wine. It is caused by a race condition in QuickReport (a component used by WinOmega) and may even (very rarely) happen on Windows. But for some reason it's much more likely to show up in Wine.

The race condition has been fixed starting with WinOmega 11.00.09.

libgnutls is needed for mail sender

If you see this error in Wine error log:

err:winediag:schan_imp_init Failed to load libgnutls, secure connections will not be available.

It means mail sender (for example, in Facturación > Clientes > Impresión) will fail if you have enabled support secure connections (SSL/STARTTLS).

In order to fix this, you need to ensure /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ exists and can be found by Wine. This usually involves creating a symlink to another 32-bit version of the library.

For example in Ubuntu Xenial amd64 this required:

sudo apt-get install libgnutls30:i386

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/

Missing libgnutls 32-bit library

Prevent wrong Window placement

In the winecfg program, open the page "graphics" tab and uncheck:

"allow the window manager to control window"

This will prevent certain situation in which modal windows do not show up on top.
