Wine cannot find the ncurses library (libncurses.so.5).

Just upgraded to cx17.5. MS Office works better however still having problems with registering fonts.

DS3H:/usr/lib$ '/opt/cxoffice/bin/wine' '--bottle' '/home/{user}/.cxoffice/Win7_2016/' '--untrusted' '--wait-children' '--' 'cxinstallfonts.exe' ~/.cxoffice/Win7_2016/drive_c/windows/fonts/tahoma.ttf

Anyone know how to solve? I have the lib installed (I think). Likely a env prob. Thanks,
Another Q - can one just dump the fonts in directory rather than register it?

DS3H:/usr/lib$ ls -l libncurses.so.5*

You need to install the 32bit version of libncurses v5.
