    playonlinux hangs on Fedora 26

    Is anybody using MS Office 2010 with playonlinux on F26? For me, it worked fine with F25 but since I updated, it does not work anymore: I can launch PowerPoint or Word but then, it hangs ..

    Re: playonlinux hangs on Fedora 26

    Found a problem !

    Wine cannot find the FreeType font library. To enable Wine to
    use TrueType fonts please install a version of FreeType greater than
    or equal to 2.0.5............


    Solution :


    Remove all libz.so library files included in PlayOnLinux library folders.

    this is an issue with outdated lib32-zlib files in PlayOnLinux library folder.

    The dependency route goes as follows:
    lib32-freetype2 depends on lib32-libpng which depends on lib32-zlib. Zlib libraries are the only ones PlayOnLinux ships on its own.

    and this is quite old issue



    Go to :


    ~/.PlayOnLinux/wine/linux*/*/lib*/libz* or /home/user/.PlayOnLinux/wine/linux-x86/

    delete from all versions of wine, select version and find file in lib folder - example :

    /home/user/.PlayOnLinux/wine/linux-x86/2.11/lib/

    remove all libz.so files

    Thank you!!! So much, I just updated and spent half of my day reading trying to fix this!! It works like a charm, you're a God or Goddess I dunno! Thanx again!
