VirtualDub 1.9.4 installation guide for Ubuntu 8.04 (32bit)
Part 1 - Installing Wine
1) Follow the instructions at http://www.winehq.org/download/deb for installing Wine under Ubuntu.Notice: Regressions are seen in Wine version 1.1.27, which prevents VirtualDub & related applications from working correctly. Wine version 1.1.26 is known to be working. Archived Wine packages for Ubuntu can be found here.
**Update: Wine version 1.1.36 corrects all of the previous regressions.**
Part 2 - Configuring Wine to run DirectShow
1) You will need to install a native build of quartz.dll and devenum.dll to (/home/User/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/). You can get these files from just about any WindowsXP machine. Be sure to rename the original quartz.dll that was provided by Wine to quartzold.dll, should you ever wish to revert back.
Part 3 - Install Codecs and Tools
2) Within the Wine configuration (Applications menu / Wine / Configure Wine), under the Libraries tab, select within the "New override for library" menu, quartz, and then click the Add button on the right. Do the same thing again for devenum. Click Apply below and then close the Wine configuration window.
3) In a terminal window (Applications / Accessories / Terminal), enter in commands, one at a time:
...so as to register the newly added dll files.
1) Get CCCP, http://www.cccp-project.net/ and install. (Installs under Wine)
2) Get AviSynth, http://avisynth.org/SourceForge and install. (Installs under Wine if using the .exe version)
3) Get VirtualDub (32bit), http://virtualdub.sourceforge.net/ and move the folder with its contents to (/home/User/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/).
4) Right-click on the Desktop and select Create Launcher. Next to Name, type in: VirtualDub. Next to Command, type in: env WINEPREFIX="/home/User/.wine" wine "C:\Program Files\VirtualDub-1.9.4\VirtualDub.exe"
Next to Comment, type in: Laugh, it's gut busting funny! Click Ok, which then will create a shortcut to allow you to run VirtualDub under Wine.
If using AviSynth with VirtualDub, the .avs script will use a file path similar to something like: DirectShowSource("Z:\home\User\Videos\Video Old\[frong]_Guin_Saga_-_16_(960x540).mkv")
The Z drive seen above uses drive mapping /
. See Wine Configuration / Drives tab for which drive mapping uses /
User name. This field will be different per user configuration.
.wine is a hidden folder. Keyboard command CTRL with H will show/hide these hidden folders and files.
