I runn CENTOS 7 laptop, playonlinux version playonlinux-4.3.4-fedora0.noarch.

Playonlinux seems to start up just fine (see underneath).

 

I though cannot install itunes. When chosing itunes 12, I hit the install button. After that, a window pops up:

Window Title: PlayOnLinux Wizard
Text underneath: Please read this

 

And this is where it stops. No error message, no nothing.

Any help to fix this is very welcomed.

Hello,

Can you confirm you can reproduce the problem with a simpler app like Notepad++?

I confirm. Same behaviour when trying to install Notepad Plus Plus

kernel: 3.10.0-957.1.3.el7.x86_64

 

 

Not sure it helps, but here transcript from CLI

So, no window appears, correct?

I can send you a screenshot if you want. Unfortunately I cannot upload here.

When selecting installation of e.g. Notepad Plus Plus or iTunes, a window appears with the title: "PlayOnLinux Wizard"
Within that window I read the following text: "Please read this"

Very interesting. Can you enlarge the window?

I have the same issue in Centos7.

When I enlarge the window, I can find the checkbox and buttons, so that I continue the process.

But, nothing is displayed below the "Please read this". I think this is a kind of a bug.

All right. As soon as I reproduce the problem, I fix it

For CentOS it is stuck on the POL_SetupWindow_notice function in the install bash script (/usr/share/playonlinux/bash/install). This feature appears to have been introducted in POL 4.15 (https://www.playonlinux.com/fr/comments-1293.html).
I suspect a CentOS issue with bash functions defined in /usr/share/playonlinux/lib/.

As a workaround for CentOS, echo keywords "KEEP_DEFAULT_INSTALLER_OPTIONS" & "DONT_BOTHER_WINEHQ" to $POL_USER_ROOT/configurations/ack_notices

eg)
echo -e "KEEP_DEFAULT_INSTALLER_OPTIONS" >> $HOME/.PlayOnLinux/configurations/ack_notices
echo -e "DONT_BOTHER_WINEHQ" >> $HOME/.PlayOnLinux/configurations/ack_notices

This is interesting. What is shown on the screen when these steps are stuck?

As mentioned in previous post, enlarging the notice/install window will discover the expected text and window buttons.

When starting install written to terminal is

[POL_SetupWindow_Init] Message: Creating new window for pid 7530

The install window displays text "Please read this"
When closing the install notice window written to terminal is

write: Broken pipe



The notice window shows output of last argument to bash function POL_SetupWindow_notice
eg) "$(eval_gettext 'Please read this')".

If I add lines:

POL_SetupWindow_Init
POL_SetupWindow_message "Hello World!" "My first message"
POL_SetupWindow_Close

to install script (/usr/share/playonlinux/bash/install) the message will appear in the notice window as expected.
