Hi, I want to install Music Bee on my Manjaro installation. It’s Manjaro 20.1 XFCE. I managed to get Music Bee working perfectly on Linux when I was using Linux Mint, however on Manjaro I’m not getting the same luck. I’m following the same guide I followed the last time (that’d be this one) but this ain’t working, and it actually has nothing to do with Music Bee itself.
I followed the guide and created a 32 bit wine prefix, so far so good. Then I run the winetricks command that installs .net 4.8 (Music Bee needs 4.6.1+) and… problems. The guide installs it with the -q argument which makes winetricks handle everything by itself without giving me the .net installation window. This wasn’t working, so I removed it to do it myself. The window pops up, I clock through the intaller and let it do its thing, after a while it tells me it successfully installed, but winetricks ain’t so convinced. It starts indefinetly repeating the same console output that looks like it’s failing somewhere but I fail to see why. This doesn’t stop, ever, it goes on and on, and if I cancel it Music Bee refuses to install because it says that .net isn’t installed, and I don’t blame it. I don’t know why this is giving me this much trouble, it should be straightforward. I posted the console output and my winetricks + wine versions on a GitHub issue I created here. Any help would be greatly appreciated, there’s just no replacement for Music Bee.
