Successfully running MM5 in Wine Ubuntu Linux

Postby hermes3por3 » Tue Feb 27, 2018 8:51 am

I've just installed MM5 in the same wine prefix I have MM4 and amazingly, it works! :D

I am running kubuntu 17.10, wine 3.2, and the imitated windows version is XP. To install MM4 I followed the guide found in

It throws some errors at the beginning, but then imports settings, playlists, and DB, and everything seems to run pretty slick. The "All tracks" node scrolls smoothly with 60K+ tracks.

I am particularly happy that the interface is no longer drawn with the dreadful unskinned windows widgets, since skinned MM4 didn't work well in wine.

So far I've just found that the tray icon does not show up, and closing the window closes the program instead of just closing it to tray (when such option is checked). Also, every time the player starts a new track the window focus goes to MediaMonkey.

That's a wonderful start so far!

Sounds great, I wouldn't expect MM5 to be able to run in Wine. :-)

That is nice to hear. I tried that a more than a few months ago and did not have any success.

Still waiting for the native Linux version though :D
