WINE + winbox.exe -> Winbox terminal is a mess

Wed Dec 26, 2012 11:28 pm

I do not recall as seeing it ever working for me and I am just ignored it until now, but there is a Winbox terminal font or formatting issue with the winbox.exe under WINE environment.
Information can be viewed under the terminal, but editing or typing it quite awful or impossible, because the cursor position is not following the text itself.


Surely I am not the only one running winbox.exe under WINE and not the only one having that issue then how other have fixed it?

Hi Ivoshiee,

I did in fact have exactly that same problem a few weeks ago when I upgraded from kubuntu to xubuntu. The upgrade seemed to go "on top" of kubuntu, i.e. it did not seem to wipe the hard drive before proceeding. It actually was quite painless.

The terminal was quite annoying I agree. I tried to play with winetricks and install other fonts and a bunch of other things to no evail.

In the end I think all I did was to reinstall wine and behold, all was good.

Regards, Dave.

Interesting. I've ever seen it being OK on any WINE version, so reinstall is likely not fixing it for me.

Should I assume that there is nobody with that issue nor has anyone know what to tinker with to get it fixed?

I can just confirm that i have never had any luck with wine + winbox. It works, but looks messy, never done the terminal (through winbox on wine) though.
If i don't have comunication to the device in the other ports via IP. I usually set up a "console interface" if i have ethernet ports to that, just a static ip on a own subnet where i can SSH to the device from the laptop.

Now days i always have a windows OS on VirtualBox or VMWare Workstation wich i use to run wine on site from laptops with Linux or OS X

I'll try to find, it should be somewhere in my HDD, but still why should the vanilla wine not work?

I'm not sure why the other program doesn't work...I do know "CrossOver" does work..

Hi, don't know if its actual, anyway - before several minutes i've search for same problem solution, answer is here:
http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Dude_Linux_Installation

apt-get install msttcorefonts

after this terminal in winbox looks fine, no mess in fonts ( Debian Jessie, wine from distribution - default install without using of winetricks ).
I do not recall as seeing it ever working for me and I am just ignored it until now, but there is a Winbox terminal font or formatting issue with the winbox.exe under WINE environment.
Information can be viewed under the terminal, but editing or typing it quite awful or impossible, because the cursor position is not following the text itself.

Re: WINE + winbox.exe -> Winbox terminal is a mess

After researching a little, I found a solution that solved using the winbox terminal through wine (tested in wine 1.8.6, under kali linux).

First, place these links in a file (you do not need to put any type of extension like .txt, .cfg), save the file with any name. I used "list", without quotes.

http://ufpr.dl.sourceforge.net/sourcefo ... dale32.exe
http://ufpr.dl.sourceforge.net/sourcefo ... rial32.exe
http://ufpr.dl.sourceforge.net/sourcefo ... ialb32.exe
http://ufpr.dl.sourceforge.net/sourcefo ... omic32.exe
http://ufpr.dl.sourceforge.net/sourcefo ... urie32.exe
http://ufpr.dl.sourceforge.net/sourcefo ... orgi32.exe
http://ufpr.dl.sourceforge.net/sourcefo ... pact32.exe
http://ufpr.dl.sourceforge.net/sourcefo ... imes32.exe
http://ufpr.dl.sourceforge.net/sourcefo ... ebuc32.exe
http://ufpr.dl.sourceforge.net/sourcefo ... rdan32.exe
http://ufpr.dl.sourceforge.net/sourcefo ... bdin32.exe

Then, download everything with the command "wget -i list", again, without quotes.

This will download some windows fonts to the directory where you are currently at the terminal. The "pwd" command will show to you the path to this directory.

After completing the download, you can check the files using the "ls -l" command.

With this, with the command "wine arial32.exe" you will install the arial32 font in your wine. Accept the term of the wine that will appear, and the font will be installed. Repeat the process for the other downloaded fonts.

After terminal install, open your winbox via wine and check the terminal. In mine, the alignment of the fonts was perfect, just like on windows.

The above repositories are from a university near my area. Because the files are small, I believe it will not be difficult to download. If there is a problem, I believe that the sources can be found in other repositories easily around the world, maybe it exists in a repository near you.

Hope this helps someone ;)
If anyone can do it, you can do it!

Hi,
just an add-on to this research, to anyone interested.

In my case, 64bit linux operating system, installing "courier new" in the system or personal folder, is just enough.

This worked for me. Ubuntu 18.04 + wine-3.0.4 + WinBox 3.18

Thank you!
