I emerged wine and downloaded irfanview, storing the installer executable in my ~/.wine/drive_c. I also downloaded mfc42.dll and put it in the windows/system32 directory, although I found this makes no difference for the observed behaviour.

I have already run winecfg, by the way.

When I try to install it using wine:
Code:

gpi@sanger ~ $ cd .wine/drive_c/
gpi@sanger ~/.wine/drive_c $ wine iview410_setup.exe
gpi@sanger ~/.wine/drive_c $


Nothing happens. It just pauses for about a second, then gives me a prompt again. "ps -ef | grep wine" doesn't reveal anything either.

Is there something obvious I can try, something I'm doing wrong?

Thanks!

¿Is it so necessary? There's media-gfx/feh too! Or imagemagick for an all-in-one...
Some cute viewers in the Qt side and gqview as the best loaded for GTK+

Irfanview is definitely the best Win32 image viewer. Wine should support it.

Many others have gotten Irfanview to work with Wine. It seemed to be routine but I was having problems with it.

I had read that there was no good Linux substitute for Irfanview. But feh is it! Thanks. :)
