File name Case problemsNote: Many problems running Windows programs on Wine can be solved just by putting the file in the correct case (lower case usually).
If using the chcase perl script for UNIX, just go to the offending directory and run the following command to get all the files (in this example) into lower case:
chcase -r -d '*' (goes through subdirectories)
chcase -d '*.*' (just files with the *.* format in the present working directory)
As far as can be told, ESPOIR for Windows works perfectly under Wine, though it has not been stress tested to much of a degree.
Download the ESPOIR ZIP file via the ESPOIR Monte Carlo Structure solution from powder diffraction by Armel Le Bail tutorials page
Extract ESPOIR using the command: unzip espoir3.zip
Now run espoir.exe (make the exe's lower case if not already) using the command:
You can also tell Wine to emulate a certain version of Windows in case this is what the program wants.
wine -winver win95 espoir
Things are happy: on prompting by ESPOIR, we have selected a file and ESPOIR is now trying to solve
the structure (terminal box highlighted in green).
