# How to make K-Meleon 1.74 and more to work with wine 1.4 #
##############################################################

First thanks to Fred who gives me the trick.

To avoid you to have to load wine 1.6, and search for files, I created these
archives corresponding to Two types of installed wine, i386(or i486) and x86_64.

It's important to choose the good archive :

km174_i386.zip for Linux versus i386 or i486 (32 bits)
and
km174_x86_64.zip for Linux versus x86_64 (64 bits)

File names are the same, but it's probable that it won't work or bad.
I insist as in km174_x86_64.zip exists also a folder i386. This folder isn't
usable for i386 and i486 installs.

How to do the wine upgrade:
-------------------------------
Depending of the distro, the location may be different.

For Ubuntu, the files needing to be upgraded are located in :

/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/wine (for i386 and x86_64)
and
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/wine (for x86_64)


For others distros, try to find where are located the files, modify the variables
in the shell to adapt the paths to your config and run it, or make your save and copy manually, you're free ...

Install the upgrade:
------------------------
1) unzip the archive for you build (i386 or x86_64) in a path where you have rights
2) open a terminal in the folder wine_i386 or wine_x86_64
4) change the right of the shell to use
Exemple :chmod +x *.sh
3) launch the shell
Exemple : ./km74_i386.sh for i386 config
4) Launch k-meleon.exe (located in the k-meleon folder)
6) If it doesn't work, install MS VC++ 2010 runtime
5) When it's ok, remove the folder where you have exteact the archive

Magic, it works ... with all the known bugs :/
Happy browsing ...

Content of km74_i386.sh

-----------------------------------------------------
#!/bin/bash

# Change the destination if your config doesn't occurs with this one
export wine_ifolder=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/wine

sudo cp -R ./i386/* $wine_ifolder
-----------------------------------------------------


#####################################################
Content of km74_x86_64.sh

-----------------------------------------------------
#!/bin/bash

# Change the destination if your config doesn't occurs with this one
export wine_ifolder=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/wine
export wine_xfolder=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/wine

sudo cp -R ./i386/* $wine_ifolder
sudo cp -R ./x86_64/* $wine_xfolder
-----------------------------------------------------

That's all folks

It should be mentioned that the download locations

https://www.dropbox.com/s/qw868ixf131zz6r/km74_i386.zip
and
https://www.dropbox.com/s/e6ov2kwuaod1y3y/km74_x86_64.zip

are the names of webpages of dropbox, where the downloads
can be done from, and not the zipfiles themselves to
download.
You have to go to the webpages, not download them
directly by right click.
This would download the html text of the webpages.
