Gecko integration with Wine

Bug #191132 reported by Scott Ritchie
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
wine (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: wine

The Wine package should supply the Gecko library somewhere on the filesystem. This way, Wine doesn't have to download it (and the download sometimes fails) when it attempts to render webpages in it's IE equivalent.

To do this properly, however, we need to ship a separate wine-gecko package (which changes much less frequently than the Wine version), depended on by the Wine package.

Wine itself needs to be changed in order for this to work. Gecko gets installed in the users .wine directory, so there has to be a check for the local copy of Gecko (from wine-gecko) first. Only if that fails, wine should try to download it.
Has anyone proposed that to upstream yet?

Wine already makes that check, all we have to do is include Gecko in /usr/share/wine/gecko
