Hi, I have to reinstall Mt4 on uBuntu today(using wine) because my computer crashed and need to be reformatted. The problem is, each time I run the installation process, it will ask me for proxy server. Otherwise, the program won't download from the internet. I already turned off my firewall and av but still the problem occurs. Can anyone help?

You need to install winhttp library to support downloading files from HTTPS sites. If you're using winetricks, install by:

winetricks winhttp

002e:err:winediag:SECUR32_initNTLMSP ntlm_auth was not found or is outdated. Make sure that ntlm_auth >= 3.0.25 is in your path. Usually, you can find it in the winbind package of your distribution.
it needs the 32bit version of ntlm_auth. In Arch Linux it can be found in AUR: lib32-libwbclient


search in your package manager for "winbind" (has to be multilib, or 32bit)


the winetrick solution mentioned above seams to break things further. If you tried it you need a new wine prefix to try the solution I mentioned

My environment is Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS, with Wine installed.

My solution:

1. Download mt4 installer exe from respective brokers. Install it in Windows C:/Apps/MT4-brokers folder.

2. Zip the C:/Apps/MT4-brokers folder and transfer the MT4-brokers.zip file to Ubuntu.

3. Extract MT4-brokers.zip to /home/(ubuntu_user)/.wine/drive_c/Apps/MT4-brokers

4. In Ubuntu desktop UI, using File Manager to go in /home/(ubuntu_user)/.wine/drive_c/Apps/MT4-brokers/ folder and double click on terminal.exe.

MT4 is able to load up. 

5. For convinience, we can create desktop icon.
