[pkg-wine-party] Bug#714520: wine: please put wineserver into appropriate place or provide symlink

Package: wine
Version: 1.4.1-4
Severity: normal
X-Debbugs-CC: jari.aalto at cante.net, tmancill at debian.org


As we can see [1], wineserver is currently located in /usr/lib/${ARCH}/wine/

But wineserver is not a library, it is a binary. Just launch:
$ /usr/lib/*/wine-unstable/wine/wineserver --help
for checking. So multiarch instructions [2] are not applicable for it.

The main problem problem is that wineserver is not available in $PATH,
so other scripts and programs cannot find it. For example:
$ /usr/bin/winetricks
wineserver not found!

This issue affects q4wine as well.

Please put wineserver into appropriate place or provide symbolic link.
