Some information in this article or section has not been updated or refers to XBMC features that have been superseded, and may not be reliable.

NOTE: This may not work and may create strange things with the translated strings. XBMC doesn't support this. Tested on Ubuntu 8.04.1 with Wine 1.1.2

First get winetricks:


Run winetricks and install the following for Microsoft .NET 1.1 SP1 to work correctly:

  • corefonts
  • gdiplus
  • vcrun2005
  • vcrun2005sp1
  • dotnet11

By running:

sh winetricks corefonts gdiplus vcrun2005 vcrun2005sp1 dotnet11

NOTE: You might have to run each item by itself, using:

sh winetricks corefonts
sh winetricks gdiplus
sh winetricks vcrun2005
sh winetricks vcrun2005sp1
sh winetricks dotnet11

Then get the XBMC Translator with:


Unzip the Translator:


And finally run:

wine Translator.exe

Hopefully this will work, a tip are if winetricks fails, try and remove ~/.wine directory and reinstall wine.
