Doesn't work because this package assumes/requires v1.5.4 but in fact it does download v1.5.5 which somehow doesn't fit the directory structure and therefore breaks.

It's a pity because not only is that a great music program but also it installs WINE as a dependency in a way that allowed me to run Ableton Live 10 out of the box.

Sure, I get the reasons for it.

I just would've liked it to be optional, as you suggested (I think it was a good suggestion!). Or at least been a bit of a smoother transition.

This's borked my installation, and I've had to manually create the prefix to get it working, as well as go by someone else's chosen directory structure. Pretty annoying. This's the only thing I regularly use wine for, so--

Using unique prefixes per application is already good advice and frequently recommended by many wine using packages and launchers. Using a single default prefix for everything you install is a great way to find yourself frequently reinstalling everything.

I don't think hardcoding a path for the wine prefix is a good idea. Nor do I think forcing the use of a unique prefix is a good idea (it was suggested as optional).

A small change in does the trick to let foobar have it's own prefix:

kode54 commented on 2020-02-03 01:26

Suggestion: Optionally using its own dedicated Wine prefix?

Foobar fails for me on load

0009:err:module:import_dll Library zlib1.dll (which is needed by L"Z:\home\alex\.foobar2000\foobar2000.exe") not found 0009:err:module:import_dll Library shared.dll (which is needed by L"Z:\home\alex\.foobar2000\foobar2000.exe") not found 0009:err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Importing dlls for L"Z:\home\alex\.foobar2000\foobar2000.exe" failed, status c0000135

Issue is solved by cding into $progHome.
