Installing LTspice[Solved]
« on: June 14, 2019, 04:14:08 pm »
For the simulation of electronical circuits I want to use LTspice also on my Peppermint 9 O.S.
But therefore I need to install Wine. But to get LTspice running I need wine64, wine-gecko and wine-mono.
Wine-gecko and wine-mono I cannot find this in the repository.
Or did I overlook something?

Maybe this will help
https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2387138

All right, I knew this will become a pain in the neck: Downloaded/extracted wine and wine-gecko, but after installing ltspice.exe and clicking on it
I would expect something like: "Open with Wine Windows Program Loader" to install LTspice.
But I cannot find something like that in Peppermint. Downloaded and extracted both wine and wine-gecko in the same folder.
Downloaded LTspice in its own folder.
I am afraid I need some more help here.

If WINE is already installed you may need to change the default application to open .exe files.

Right click the file,

click "Properties",

click the "Open With",

select "wine" and click "Set as Default".

Now double-click the file again.

But that is exactly what I did with no result but.......... I think I myself am to blame because I THOUGHT I had downloaded and installed Wine64
but I discovered I did NOT.  :-[
How do I do this? where can I find wine64?

Alright, I at last managed to get LTspice working  :)
Otherwise I had to push Peppermint aside, but luckily this was not necessary.
