I was able to install MPE 1.8.5 using the PlayOnLinux script
posted above.

- Linux Mint 17.1 64-bit, Cinnamon
- PlayOnLinux 4.2.2
- Wine 1.6

So far it works fine, but I have a few questions

After startup it takes quite a while until the data is loaded, about
45 seconds, while the status bar states "loading user data...".
The same user data is also used in Virtualbox, there it takes
about 5 seconds. Any ideas what might cause this?

2.) After startup there is a second tab in the taskbar (not the tray),
some dead window with just a question mark as icon and tooltip.
Sometimes it closes itself when MPE is switched between
back- and foreground.
This does not happen on another system (Linux Mint, 32-bit, MATE)

EDIT: I just installed MPE 1.8.6 and 1.8.7 with the script. With these
versions there are two of the dead windows, with 1.8.5 there is only
one. Might this be related to Linux Mint widgets or the
Windows Gadget feature?

3.) Some tutorials mention that the library "msxml3" is needed.
Does the script install it? I could only find
"POL_Call POL_Install_vbrun6"

Kind regards,

Just for reference, I'm using MPE on Ubuntu with this configuration :
- Ubuntu 17.04
- MPE 1.8.8
- PlayOnLinux 4.2.10
- Thunderbird Windows 52
- Wine 2.7 (amd64, but a 32 bits storage)

MPE installation is really easy, as stated in the tutorials in this forum.
Having Thunderbird running on Wine is a little bit more tricky, because of the libraries needed (you have to install the Visual C 2015 library).
And if you wanna use the native Thunderbird in Linux (not only the Wine/Windows version), linking between the two versions shows some problems as Ubuntu is v45 and Windows is v52. I would recommend to use the Wine version only !

I don't use any connection except the network ("WiFi") so I haven't checked Bluetooth configuration, though I connect my photo to Linux without any problem.

I also see some slow operation, mostly when syncing SMS, as I have a database of over 75000. On the windows MPE, it takes more than one minute, on Linux, it's at least half an hour !

Thank you The EYE for starting this topic and dan.sel for your script and manual guide!

Until I found this section I installed Myphoneexplorer directly via WINE. Installation works fine and MPE started correct. Problems appeared when I tried to connect my phone. MPE wants me to name then new profile and then crashes. After then it crashes every time I started MPE and many errors occurred in the log.

So I searched for a solution and found this instructions. It works! I followed the manual installation using Mint 18.2, PlayOnLinux 4.2.10, Wine 2.20 (32bit) and MPE Version 1.8.8.
without any problems. No adware windows, errors messages or other problems occurred. Finally I could connect my phone via WLan and sync the address book, organizer, notes and SMS. At the moment I haven't tried to synchronize photos and files yet. Due to previous experience, I have also not tried to connect the phone via USB or bluetooth.

After all I would like to thank FJ for MPE, the best phone app ever Smile

I've tested SMS and access to files on the phone. Both worked and I could send SMS and download/delete files on the phone.
