I installed FL-Studio 12 in my Ubuntu 16.04 but the menu texts and all text related things didn't appeared. I googled it and found that I need to install corefonts from Winetricks. But when I tried to install it an error appeared saying

sha1sum mismatch! Rename /home/lenovo/.cache/winetricks/corefonts/arial32.exe and try again.

How do I fix this?

  • Did you try what it suggests and rename the arial32.exe file? – Terrance Jul 3 '18 at 5:03
  • I can't find the /.cache/ file. And can I rename it through terminal? – unKNOWN seeker Jul 3 '18 at 5:12

    You have to go to cd ~/.cache/winetricks/corefonts/ and then rename it in terminal as mv arial32.exe arial32.exe.orig or something similar to that. – Terrance Jul 3 '18 at 5:14

The file arial32.exe needs to be renamed.

In terminal go to the corefonts folder and then rename the file:

cd ~/.cache/winetricks/corefonts/
mv arial32.exe arial32.exe.orig

Hope this helps!


Recently I've met the same problem. To solve it I've switched to the latest version of winetricks. In short the steps are:

sudo apt purge winetricks

cd ~/Downloads
wget  https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Winetricks/winetricks/master/src/winetricks
chmod +x winetricks 
sudo mv winetricks /usr/local/bin

Please note at this stage winetricks will be available only from the command line. More details can be found at: https://wiki.winehq.org/Winetricks

In addition I want to report that with the current Staging branch I'm able to play StarCraft II more fluently than in Windows :P

  • Thank you! I've tried everything possible and I forgot to check WineHQ page. It works like a charm now! – Miracles Happen Dec 27 '18 at 8:36
