This is where you start playing with the different versions of WINE.
I don't know which version to recommend, but the default version for Ubuntu is the wrong choice for umpteen reasons, starting with the fact that it breaks e-Sword. I'd suggest going back to one of the 1.o.x versions of WINE, and trying them out, one at a time.
OTOH, Greek and Hebrew font issues are as likely to be due to defects in the resource, as due to the effects of running e-Sword under WINE.
Now boys and girls,
This is where the difficulty lies in running software that is built for a particular operating system (this time its namely Windows), using something that doesn't give the prefered results. This sort of thing sort of reminds me trying to fit a Ford motor in a Holden car chasis and then trying to drive it, or even better still, trying to put new wine into old wine skins.
So what is the point of this. Well, I think we all of us should get Rick Meyers to write e-Sword for the platform that it should run on. In other words three kinds of editions of e-Sword:
- An e-Sword built for Unix (Mac OSx)
- An e-Sword built for Linux (including the Adroid Linux distro)
- An (obvious as the skin on one's nose) e-Sword build for Windows.
I dunno what programming language e-Sword is written in, but I do know there are programming IDEs (Intergrated Development Enviroments) which do multiple compilations for different operating systems, i.e., Embarcadero's (formerly Borland's) C++ Builder. And if that isn't good enough, then write the program in Java, as Linux, Unix, and Windows use Java runtime files that run the program irrespective of the operating system.
You see, its been said that "Rick listens to us." And if that is true, then lets see how well he listens to this, because if there is a unified voice in this, then he should listen.
