Successfully running MM5 in Wine Ubuntu Linux

Post by hermes3por3 » Tue Feb 27, 2018 8:51 am

I've just installed MM5 5.0.0.2089 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 http://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index.p ... y_.2B_Wine.

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

Success here too with MM5 5.0.0.2089:
Under Manjaro XFCE inside a default wine prefix. MAD-Plugin installed.
4 errors occur at startup. 4 times clicking "OK" (and not sending via internet as this does'nt help anyone at the moment I guess..).
Looks great, is responsive and works fine.
Only exception so far: Volume in the player does not work. (I use the OS volume instead)
OS: Win7 64bit, Manjaro Linux (XFCE),Linux Mint 18.3
Hardware: Intel Celeron G1610; Intel IGP; 8GB Ram; latest K-Lite Codec-Pack; Tracks: 41000 audio; 1900 video

The latest version so far (5.0.0.2117) now shows the tray icon with the right-click context menu. Also it doesn't steal the focus at every new track. Lovley.
