Hi there,

Im trying to install MT5 in my Ubuntu 14.04 (32bits) but it cant connect to the server correctly. I took a pic of the problem i get:

installing  MT5 ubuntu

I get lots of fixme's but i think the one that causes the problems is the fixme:iphlpapl.... with its correspondant error err:winhttp....

I upgraded the winhttp package but nothing changed. I also upgrade Mono and Gecko package seen in other posts with the same problem.

I know theres not many Ubuntu users here but i have to try. Ill also post a similar post in Ubuntu's forums.

Thanks in advance for the help.

I used the forum search (in upper right corner) and find the similar thread with some decisions:

Can't Install MT4 (in the "Wine" Windows Emulator) using Ubuntu O.S. version 14.04

I am not sure it will help or not ... for example:

Can't Install MT4 (in the "Wine" Windows Emulator) using Ubuntu O.S. version 14.04

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

winetricks winhttp 

and you can also look at this post with more details.

Had same problem and installed winhttp as described. It only got me to start installing, but download progress got stuck at 6 144 KB.

I finally got it working by RIPing it - install on Windows, move the installation folder to Ubuntu and run with "wine terminal64.exe".

I got installing that package with the following comands:

curl -o winetricks https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Winetricks/winetricks/master/src/winetricks
sh winetricks vcrun2008 winhttp wininet

Now it does not need the server, but it cant download more than 4864Kb. I get these following problems:

installing MT5 ubuntu 2

Ill keep posting my progress.

It is the installer you are having problems with, not the program itself. Even in WineHQ they RIPed it instead of installing: https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=2893 "What was not tested

Installer not tested .. installed with Wine 1.5.16 to bypass the proxy problem)"


Let us know if you are able to install with installer.

 

WineHQ - MetaTrader 4.x
  • appdb.winehq.org
The following comments are owned by whoever posted them. WineHQ is not responsible for what they say. Everytime I try to install MT4 just 768KB is downloaded and then downloading stops... Does somebody know what could help, thank you. [post new] [reply to this] If you are stuck on proxy prompt, check your error messages. If you find two...

Thanks guys. I had the wine 1.8 but it kept asking me the server, i uninstalled it and put the wine1.6(the one marco shows). Now it doesnt ask for the server but it always stops downloading in 13214Kb. I think i need to upgrade some packages, dont know which ones but some.

Kerso it might just be a lot easier for you to simply pull the entire MT5 and its directory for a windows platform and execute the Terminal.exe in wine.

This way you can skip the installation process, and it will be portable if you put it on removable mass storage device.

Ill try that. Thanks. I should take the Programs Files/MT5 folder and paste it on wine/programs/ right?

Anywhere, you can run it straight from sd card or usb drive but keep in mind if you decide to update history center it will go over >10 Gb
