Winetricks is an easy way to work around problems in Wine.

It has a menu of supported games/apps for which it can do all the workarounds automatically. It also lets you install missing DLLs or tweak various Wine settings individually.

The latest version can be downloaded here: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Winetricks/winetricks/master/src/winetricks

Tagged releases are accessible here: https://github.com/Winetricks/winetricks/releases

Custom .verb files

You can pass winetricks a custom .verb (format below), that can be used to add new dlls/settings/programs.

Example icecat.verb:

w_metadata icecat apps \
    title="GNU Icecat 31.7.0" \
    publisher="GNU Foundation" \
    year="2016" \
    media="download" \
    file1="icecat-31.7.0.en-US.win32.zip" \
    installed_exe1="$W_PROGRAMS_X86_WIN/icecat/icecat.exe"

load_iceweasel()
{
    w_download https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gnuzilla/38.8.0/icecat-38.8.0.en-US.win32.zip b9f49144f07044f12afc390acb36bf93e174e199
    w_try_unzip "${W_PROGRAMS_X86_UNIX}" "${W_CACHE}/${W_PACKAGE}/${file1}"
}

Note that the filename and command name (icecat) must match. All metadata fields are optional, only command name and category required.

Tests

The tests need checkbashisms and shellcheck>=0.4.4 installed. Makefile supports a few test targets:

  • check - runs './tests/winetricks-tests quick' (without first clearing $WINETRICKS_CACHE)
  • shell-checks - runs './tests/shell-checks'
  • test - runs './tests/winetricks-tests full' (and clears $WINETRICKS_CACHE first)
  • xvfb-check - runs './tests/winetricks-tests xvfb-check' (without first clearing $WINETRICKS_CACHE first)
