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.
