I want to install Synthesia, but the creators didn't bother with a Linux version (as usual). They said it would run under Wine 1.4, but my wine is higher than that apparently, and I don't know how to downgrade it. However, I saw that someone had made a Linux version called Linthesia [hypertext removed due to low reputation - <10 reputation = >2 links not allowed in posts] and put it up on Sourceforge in the form of a .src.tgz file. I have installed both Synthesia and Linthesia and currently am able to use neither (the audio doesn't work in Synthesia under my current version of Wine). Could someone please walk me through the steps of either installing Linthesia from the .src.tgz file or downgrading my Wine.
Yes, there is a README in the .src.tgz file. There is also a makefile, but when I tried to make, it didn't work because the files are still in the .src.tgz and not on my computer. Here is a screenshot of the contents of the file.
Ariel, your answer worked until it came to installing the build dependencies. I installed build-essential and it worked fine. I then tried to install the rest of the packages and got error messages, which can be viewed here.
