Hello everyone,

This is a small step by step guide how to get LogbookPro (1.11.9) Running on Linux. It should work on every distro (probably even Apple) but it has been tested to work on Fedora 16 64bit.

This tutorial assumes you have a basic knowledge of linux and you have sudo rights.

-Install wine and cabextract
Code:
sudo yum install wine cabextract
-start wine configurator from your start menu and set it for windows 7 (it started for me with downloading Gecko)

-Back into the terminal:
Code:
cd /tmp
sudo wget http://winetricks.org/winetricks
sudo chmod 777 winetricks
./winetricks art2kmin
Follow the on screen instructions.

Code:
./winetricks riched20 riched30 mfc42 msmask msvcirt vcrun6sp6 vcrun6 wsh7
./winetricks allfonts
The allfonts and riched20 gave me a few errors but these can be neglected.

Get 2 DLL files of a windows computer (assuming the same version as you have set, but who knows... I didn't test this)
-scrrun.dll
-oleaut32.dll
(both these files should be in your c:/windows/system32/ folder)

Copy both these files into your wine windows:
/home/username/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/

Now start Wine File program. This will open a "explorer" like window. Select top left menu "File --> Run"
Code:
regsvr32 scrrun.dll
Now open Wine Configurator and go to tab Libraries. Here select a override for oleauth. (Riched20/30 are already in this list)

Time to install Logbook Pro. Download it and install it using "Open with Wine Windows Program Loader".

Now all you need to do is start the program. Wine has created symbolic links to documents. Select your .LBK file in the "Windows" system.

Enjoy all the functions that LBP brings to windows without the Micro$oft!!!

Last thing I did was strictly cosmetic:
download a .png logo of logbookpro (https://www.nc-software.com/newsletters/2011/03/LogbookPro.png) and use it as a icon for the desktop program. (used to be needed, but now works without doing this)

Hi! If you're still around I'm having some trouble getting this to work:

winetricks riched20 fails saying the file can't be found, assuming MS changed the location of it.
same with winetricks riched30

I'm assuming all that does is get the drivers riched20 and riched32, so I just grabbed those from my windows installation.

Once I did that I edited the logbook pro icon to "env WINEDLLOVERRIDE="oleaut32=n" WINEPREFIX="/home/<my name>/.wine" wine C:\\Program\ Files\ \(x86\)\\Logbook\ Pro\\Logbook.exe" instead of what is listed above, which just responds with "WINEDLLOVERRIDE="oleaut32=n" not found.

The rest of the instructions worked fine, but when I try to run it it never opens. I can run the actual logbook.exe program file on its own but it either crashes, or will never open my logbook file, it just says "Loading data: Please wait" forever.

I'm assuming something about wine has changed in the last few months. What do you think?

Thanks!

Thanks, it's just not working for me under Ubuntu. It does bring the logbook up now but none of the fields are editable and if I do anything it freezes. I'll have to try and start it fresh tomorrow and see where I get with a clean install. I hope I get it to work because it's the last thing I still do under windows ;)

Dear Traffic,

the best way to troubleshoot any application in WINE is to run it from the CLI (commandline/terminal). This way you get feedback from the program and can start looking for a solution.

Start the program from the CLI: (just copy your shortcut properties)
Code:
[jacco@vaio ~]$ env WINEPREFIX="/home/jacco/.wine" wine C:\\Program\ Files\\Logbook\ Pro\\Logbook.exe
You will keep some errors even in a running version: (but these don't prevent the program from working.
Code:
err:ole:COMPOBJ_DllList_Add couldn't load in-process dll L"C:\\windows\\system32\\scrrun.dll"
err:ole:create_server class {0d43fe01-f093-11cf-8940-00a0c9054228} not registered

fixme:share:NetShareEnum Stub ((null) 2 0x32dd44 -1 0x32dd4c 0x32dd40 (nil))
If that still does not make it work for you we can set up a session (SSH/VNC) to see how to solve it

Hi, I appreciate the advice! I'm out of town for a few days so I wont be able to try this until I get back. I'll let you know what I find out.

The oleaut32.dll and windowscodecs.dll errors seem to be the issue. winetricks returns an error when I try to load windowscodecs.dll and oleaut32 should already be in there.

Yes, did you already get this fixed? Did you copy a oleaut32 out of a similar windows versions as per instructions? (wine configurator add override etc)

I still think I may be having the wrong fonts supported. Which fonts does LBP actually use? Neil?

Just re-installed my laptop with Linux Mint 14

Another confirmed setup

Hi everyone, just to confirm I have it running again. Wasn't the smoothest setups (as Neil can probably see by the amount of activitions on my license) But got it working in the end again.

-Linux Mint (32 bit)
-Linux 3.5.0-17-generic #28-Ubuntu SMP Tue Oct 9 19:32:08 UTC 2012 i686 i686 i686 GNU/Linux
-Wine 1.4.1
-Winetricks 20120912
-LBP 1.12.6

In the folder ~/Downloads I have 3 files:
-oleaut32.dll
-scrrun.dll
-lbpNOMSI.exe

My exact!!!!!!! steps: (follow the on screen instructions if needed)
Code:
#sudo apt-get install wine cabextract winetricks
#winetricks art2kmin
#winetricks riched20 riched30 mfc42 msmask msvcirt vcrun6sp6 vcrun6 wsh57
#winetricks allfonts
#mv ~/Downloads/*.dll ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/
#wine regsvr32 scrrun.dll
#winetricks mdac28
Next we need to configure wine:
Code:
#winecfg
In the tab Libraries add a entry for oleaut32 and click on Ok/Apply

Time to install lbp: (i did it via command line, but feel free to double click the exe)
Code:
#wine ~/Downloads/lbproNoMSI.exe
If it complaints about the system not being correct for LBP, please check your winecfg (I set it for winXP)

This completes it. Now to run from terminal: (please replace username) or click the icon on the desktop.....
Code:
env WINEPREFIX="/home/username/.wine" wine C:\\Program\ Files\\Logbook\ Pro\\Logbook.exe
It will still prompt you some errors, but LBP is functional (so far):
Code:
fixme:storage:create_storagefile Storage share mode not implemented.
err:ole:CoInitializeEx Attempt to change threading model of this apartment from multi-threaded to apartment threaded
fixme:resource:DestroyAcceleratorTable other process handle 0x1?
fixme:share:NetShareEnum Stub ((null) 2 0x32d884 -1 0x32d88c 0x32d880 (nil))
err:ole:CoGetClassObject class {00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000} not registered

Ok, now going for Linux Mint 15 (ubuntu based) I may need some feedback from Neil or the team here:

-Linux Mint 15 (kernel 3.11.2 64 bit)
-Wine 1.7.3
-Winetricks 20130707
-LBP 1.16.9

My exact steps:
Create a 32 bit wine env. I did not get it working in 64 bit wine.
Code:
WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine
The rest is as above.

LBP starts fine and it also lets me edit my log. Unfortunatly Analyzer (my most beloved function) only shows me a white screen with 2 scrolling bars. I guess I am missing some dependencies.

Neil any clue what I am missing for reports/analyzer to work? I have these things installed:
Code:
$ winetricks list-installed
art2kmin
baekmuk
consolas
corefonts
dotnet40
droid
mdac27
mdac28
mfc42
msls31
msmask
msvcirt
riched20
riched30
tabctl32
tahoma
vcrun6sp6
vcrun6
wsh56vb
wsh57

Hi Jacco,

Tough one, not really sure, but I suggest DAO 3.51 and/or DAO 3.6 and see if that helps.

If anyone is still on here, I was able to install Logbook Pro. I was able to restore my data from a backup file, but I am unable to run any reports (it just says processing and never does anything) and my data from my android app is not syncing either.

I am brand new to Linux and have very limited experience.

I running Lubuntu 16.04.5

I tried running LBP in LX Terminal and this is what I have:
