    Q4wine cannot find Wineserver, not installed?


    Hi,

    So I've installed q4wine on Debian Wheezy, however when it first ran the wizard, it said that wineserver binary file cannot be found and won't continue without it. How am I going to install wineserver?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    You need to install wine, which will load the wineserver component. How did you install q4wine? The Debian package manger tools (aptitude, apt-get, synaptic) should have seen wine as a dependency of q4wine and installed it accordingly.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    Wine was installed, checked on package manager and q4wine was installed via spm as well. I'm not sure if I use aptitude would it make any difference since spm also include resolving dependency functions. If it did have this issue, then it should have popped up whenever I would perform an update on my system whether via apt-get or aptitude.
