Installing eSword 7.X Using Wine

1. Install WINE

2. Run "winecfg" in a terminal, select "XP" under "Windows Versions", and add the "riched20.dll" to "Libraries", remembering to change it's "load order" to "Native(Windows)". Click "OK".

3. Copy the "msls31.dll" file from you Windows installation.....WINDOWS/System32, to the system32 folder in Linux. This can be found inside the hidden "wine" folder in your home This file allows you to use "Strongs" without crashing eSword.

4. Download the eSword installation file, and then copy setup785.exe to your home folder and in a terminal use "wine setup785.exe" to install eSword (logged in as su).

5. To get the modules to run, you need to copy them from the eSword directory on your Windows machine, to the /.wine/drive_c/Program Files/e-Sword folder in your home directory.
