Do you want to watch Hulu in Debian with Iceweasel/Firefox without having to go to Windows or Ubuntu? Of course, Adobe Flash is bad, and so is DRM. But if you’re going to watch it, isn’t it better to do it in Debian than having to restart your computer (or run a Virtualbox)?
Yes, it worked. Here are a few tips for any other people trying to get WINE to work. (Did not need WINE-development, though maybe it is better to install the libraries therein.)
You will need to add dpkg 32 bit architecture …
Then just from Terminal run “wine setup.exe” to begin setup.
One may need to install the mono runtime, though this may have been unnecessary –> use the prompt to download the MSC and move it to /usr/share/wine/mono/.
Things worked for me, but then since BibleWorks used Arial font, and it was not installed, my English font was weird. You can then change it to a font that is installed, such as EZRA SIL SR, but it still looks weird. Instead, I copied a font (Arimo from Google Typecatcher) into the /usr/share/wine/wine/fonts/ folder. And then set that up. I doubt this will help, but I also renamed the Arimo.ttf file to Arial, just in case. But I think this step is unnecessary.
This was because my Virtualbox with XP was acting funny (as in BSOD!)
