MSN on linux


#1

If you want to run any version of msn/wlm on Linux follow these steps :stuck_out_tongue:
-Open up a terminal and run sudo apt-add-repository ‘deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ trusty main’
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install --install-recommends winehq-stable
OR For more info on installing wine on linux visit https://wiki.winehq.org/Download

and then winetricks should be installed after wine is installed if not install it manually and open it and install these from winetricks :

corefonts
flash
gecko
msls31
msxml3
riched20
riched30
tahoma

and then
cd /Desktop (or wherever ur downloaded msn file is at)
and then wine msiexec /i escargot-wlm-*-en (the " * " should be replaced by the version u downloaded)
and hit enter and wait for it to install and everything should work perfectly :slight_smile:


Share your desktops!

#10

Everything works well in windows 10 with 8.5 except the email box


#11

try it on a vm or yeah when u install it one day try these steps :stuck_out_tongue:


#12

iam not talking about the mail icon thing , but about this Capturar10


#13

oh the space is too small? like the login box for pass and email is too small to input anything in it? if so yeah it is because u need to install some fonts (corefonts) and also the other wine components to make it work properly :stuck_out_tongue:


#14

yes


#15

Yeah then its the fonts u need corefonts and tahoma and dont just install the fonts and leave the others away if u do it will be buggy af because u dont have all the wine components so follow the steps and it will very well :stuck_out_tongue:
