MusicBee runs great on Linux with Wine, and is super easy to install
As this is the Top Hit when searching for "MusicBee + Linux" I was kind of disappointed that I didn't find an easy to follow guide on how to install it under wine(for someone with very little wine/winetricks knowledge). Particularly when I found out how easy it actually was. So I'l post how I did it in April 2019.
First, some specs;
OS: Ubuntu 18.10
Desktop Environment: KDE Plasma 5.15.3
MusicBee: 3.2-Update3 ('Setup', not 'Portable')
Note: Text following the '$' symbol is meant to be run in a terminal
Step 1: Download and extract the MusicBee installer
Step 2: Run the installer with wine. I recommend accepting to add a Desktop Icon so MusicBee becomes searchable from the launcher. You can delete the ~/Desktop/MusicBee.desktop file later anyway.
$ wine ~/Downloads/MusicBeeSetup_3_2_Update3.exe
Step 3: Install some DDL dependencies into the wineprefix
$ winetricks -q dotnet45 mfc42 xmllite gdiplus d3dx9 vcrun2008 wmp10
If you try and launch MusicBee now you might get an error saying that "MusicBee does not run on WindowsVista/XP". If so, do step 4.
Step 4: Set the wineprefix's Windows version to Windows 7 or newer. Open the configuration tool by running;
I'm no wine expert, but with the latest releases of wine it's become trivial to have MusicBee running in Linux, so I though I'd share for anyone else missing the best music player in the world in their new Linux home.
