Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

foo_quicksearch under wine


i am trying to get foo_quicksearch with foobar 1.3.12 running under wine. (also tried fooboar 1.4.3 - but the old version seems to run better in wine)
following the doku quicksearch needs the windows imaging component.
i installed this and the plugin loads. but as soon as i enter a letter in the search field, foobar crashes.

i would like to know if there are other dependencies and if someone has any experience on how to troubleshoot those wine issues,
i am ready to get my hands dirty.

better post in the official discussion thread to gain more attention ;)

i ran into the same problems with quicksearch some time ago and found out, that foobar's internal media library search already offers all that i needed.

good luck!

deactivate "autocomplete from history" in settings and it will not crash anymore

I had to turn of auto search (ie. so you press enter to search) for it to stop crashing.

1.6 and newer run just fine under Wine, so you'll probably have to figure out something that doesn't involve quicksearch if you want stable results.
