L-Edit in Ubuntu

I understand that Ubuntu is not supported by Mentor Graphics for L-Edit. However, at one point, we were able to run L-Edit, S-Edit, and T-Spice (v16.03) in Ubuntu 12.04. This utilized the wine package which had to be installed by hand, however other than that, it seemed to work seamlessly.

We've now upgraded to Ubuntu 16.04 and the newer version of the software (2016a) seems to install correctly (again, we have to install wine "manually" using 'apt-get install wine'.  When we start a program from the command line such as:


it goes through an application registration process and says this one-time setup is complete.  Unfortunately after that, it complains that there is a bad substitution on line 134 of /opt/tanner/bin/ledit.  When attempting to run again, it reports there is an unexpected operator on line 25, one on line 40, and again a bad substitution on line 134.

Again, I understand that this is not supported. However, does anyone have a suggestion as to how to address get this running properly?

Thank you!
