Thread: Newby, and Wine

  1. #1

    Default Newby, and Wine

    I went to computer install applications, then searched for wine and installed it. Where did it go?

    I have looked everywhere but I cannot find it. So how do I use wine now?

    I have been palying with ubuntu, but I installed Suse for the first time a few hours ago.

    You can find it with the whereis command in a terminal.
    example:
    Code:
    lindy@lindys_contraption:~> whereis wine
    wine: /usr/bin/wine /usr/lib/wine /usr/bin/X11/wine /usr/include/wine /usr/share/wine  /usr/share/man/man1/wine.1.gz
    If you have a Windows application you'd like to install I'd recommend checking the wine application data base to see if the program is even installable or has any special instruction.Wine HQ There are also some nice how-to's there as well to help you get going in the wonderful world of wine.

    I want to run CS2 intill I get the hang of this OS. Yes it will work and I have had it running on ubuntu. In ubuntu you just rightclick the .exe file and chose to run with wine. That isnt the case in Suse. I cant figure out how to use it.

    Just run from terminal

    Find the folder with the exe file, and then right click, open in terminal, then type "wine setup.exe" or whatever the program is.

    It's spelt wine not whine
    You will find your wine apps in:
    ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files

    It's a hidden folder in your /home

    You do not need to use the command line. I use different Windows programs with wine without difficulty.
    If you are using KDE install Wine with YAST. After installation a Wine entry is added to the Start menu after Applications. If not, it doesn't matter because eventually it will come.
    With Dolphin go to the directory where your Windows .exe file is. Right click on it and chose Properties. In the Permissions tag check that the file is marked executable. If not set the relevant check box. After that left click on it. A pop up windows will open. In the line Editor under "open with" write wine. Press OK and the installation process will start. No need of any command line.

    You can also try wine-doors (I am using version 0.1.2), it has a nice GUI
    It works fine now with OpenSUSE 11.0
