Howto: Make Cynapse Infocryptor run on wine in Ubuntu 8.0.4

July 15, 2008

Here's a blast from the past:I've figured out how to make Cynapse InfoCryptor work on Ubuntu Desktop. Here's how you can do it too:

  1. Install the lastest version of Wine (I used 1.0)

    • First, open a terminal window (Applications->Accessories->Terminal). Then add the repository's key to your system's list of trusted APT keys by copy andpasting the following:wget -q -O- | sudo apt-key add -Next, add the repository to your system's list of APT sources:For Ubuntu Hardy (8.04):sudo wget -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/winehq.list

    • Update APT's package information by running 'sudo apt-get update'.

  2. Install Winetricks

    • wget -O ~/

    • chmod +x ~/

  3. Install all 3 MDAC components from the GUI that comes when you run:

    • ~/

  4. Install and run Infocryptor as normal. It will appear under Wine -> Programs -> Cynapse in your Ubuntu Main menu.
