Workaround for missing libicu | Property: HASICUINDLL, Signature:SystemIcuinDllSearch
by Stefan Damm on Monday June 24th 2024, 5:38
Here a workaround for the error:
open a terminal (e.g. bash) in your wine prefix drive_c

execute

wget github.com/unicode-org/icu/releases/download/release-75-1/icu4c-75_1-Win64-MSVC2022.zip
unzip icu4c-75_1-Win64-MSVC2022.zip
cd bin64/
cp *.dll ../../windows/syswow64/
cd ../../windows/syswow64
ln -s icudt75.dll icudt.dll
ln -s icuin75.dll icuin.dll
ln -s icuio75.dll icuio.dll
ln -s icutu75.dll icutu.dll
ln -s icuuc75.dll icuuc.dll

What this does is download an official icu release and copy the dlls to the syswow directory (where they are in windows 10).

This is the wrong icu version, seems version 52 is required instead of 75.
It is good enough to get past the installer but not fitting enough to run Logos.

At the moment I'm recommending using the windows icu libs as they are open licensed and they are modified for dotnet.

Can you confirm that your suggestion works? With which wine version? Which Logos / Verbum version please?

I am using Wine 9.11
Logos Version 34.1
It only installs afterwards Logos crashes shortly after start.

I tried the Windows versions of the icu DLLs but it would crash with them even before showing the Version.

To test further I built a libicu52 with VS2022 (first accidentally as debug version).
The funny thing is Logos would start using this Version but crash after some Seconds while having some String Artefacts (what would be expected from icu problems)
After checking with strace i noticed that the VCRuntime needed for the icu I built was missing.
Then switched to the release Version and installed the Runtime just to find that it now crashes with Segfault before the Version screen.

I also cannot get the Debugger to break on the Segfault so I know what causes it...

We got it working, see here - github.com/FaithLife-Community/LogosLinuxInstaller/issues/22
Also there is a pull request for the installer which adds this. We should have it tested and rolling out very soon but you can do it manually.
