I installed Zorro 1.83.2 on Linux using wine (32 bit). I also installed wine-gecko and jre (using the workaround mentioned at winehq and adding a symlink to jvm.dll in the Zorro installation directory). The documentation is rendered correctly. However, the charts are missing fonts (legends, axes numbers, etc).

I know that Zorro is not supported under Linux but do you have an idea how to fix this problem?

Hi Markuz. Install corefonts. I did it via winetricks via q4wine...

HTH.

Now you can open the help from Linux.


I have xchm, but when I click on Help I just get a blank white window. Is there something else I should be doing?

I don't think you should have remove Zorro from wineHQ, just because you "stopped trust in data produced by zorro under wineHQ". Unless you were the one who made the wineHQ entry in the first place?

I mean it doesn't sound like you carefully analyzed the discrepancy, to pinpoint a failure under Wine.

I also think this, first you have to make sure that everything is really the same, input data (history files, asset settings) and so on... There is no reason (which i know) why it should produce complete different results - when all the data is the same.

1+1=2 no matter if it is linux or windows... Depending on what algos you use you can get small differences (caused by randomness) but it should not produce very different results (good system (win) turns into a bad system (linux)).

Zorro runs fine here on Fedora 28 / Wine.

I have seen differences between runs as well (Wine on MacOS).
What I've noticed is that the historical data is somehow being read differently, even though the whole History folder is an exact copy of each other.

For example, under Wine, it reports:
Test period 2012-01-18..2017-12-29 (35984 bars)

Under Windows:
Test period 2012-01-18..2017-12-29 (35990 bars) <--- notice more bars here for the same period

The version of Zorro has been freshly downloaded in both cases, 2.03.
I'm a beginner with Zorro and have no idea where to even start looking for fixing this...

Different output results are caused by different input data. I think it is unlikely that they are caused by Linux. But whatever the reason is, you can normally quickly find it by comparing both logs. A comparing tool like BeyondCompare is very useful here.

I have compared them and it looks to be time related... somehow data in Wine is being shifted by 1 hour it seems, but not always, only around the weekends.
It almost seems like a Timezone issue even though both machines are set to the same GMT+1. The tested data was EURUSD, downloaded from zorro website, script was Workshop_4.

There are things like this all over the test.log
Wine:
