Wine and libncurses.so.5


Hi
I am using crossover office 15.1.0 to run some windows specific softwares. I was trying to update crossover fonts but its wine gave following error:
Code:
Wine cannot find the ncurses library (libncurses.so.5).
registration failed
I am using arch linux which has libncurses.so.6
So my question is that can I co-install libncurses.so.5 along with version 6?
Or is there any other solution to the problem?
Regards

you should be able to

SOMETIMES????? a quick hack can work

make a sim link from libncurses.so.6 to libncurses.so.5
Code:
-- assuming 32 bit !!!!!--
cd /usr/lib
ln -s libncurses.so.6 libncurses.so.5
that sometimes works

Nope. Still giving the same error.
I tried /usr/lib and /usr/lib32
Code:
ln -s libncurses.so.6 libncurses.so.5
and
Code:
ln -s libncurses.so libncurses.so.5
Maybe its looking somewhere else for libncurses.so.5!!

Code:
packer -S --skipinteg lib32-ncurses5-compat-libs
did not give any error. It seems that it worked but still the windows softwares are not recognizing localized fonts. Let me see whats wrong here.
Thanks for pointing me in right direction
PS. I also have to replace gcc with 'gcc-multilib'.
