Codeweavers Crssover has a bottle for AdiIRC which installs all the necessary dependencies for .NET 4.5, seems to work pretty good on both MacOS and Linux.
Installing AdiIRC in Wine on 64 bit Ubuntu and OS X.
Wine is a Windows compatibility layer which allows you to run many Windows programs on Linux/OS X.
Winetricks is a script to help you install various Windows components and programs.
AdiIRC does NOT work in mono.
On Ubuntu/Debian Type:
apt-get install wine
On OS X type:
# If homebrew is not installed, type /usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)" # Then install Wine through homebrew brew install wine
Wine does not allow running 64 bit .NET applications, so you must create a 32 bit wine folder.
WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32 winecfg
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Winetricks/winetricks/master/src/winetricks chmod +x winetricks
Install .NET using Winetricks¶
If you downloaded the 32 bit .NET 2.0 version of AdiIRC (recommended) type:
WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32 ./winetricks dotnet20
If you downloaded the 32 bit .NET 4.5 version of AdiIRC (not recommended) type:
WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32 ./winetricks dotnet45
After .NET is installed, you should be able to run AdiIRC by typing:
WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32 wine AdiIRC.exe
It's possible to skin Wine/Windows programs to look more native in a Linux environment, check https://askubuntu.com/questions/219791/improve-gui-appearance-of-wine-applications/756781 for examples.
