Thread: Wine issues

  1. #1

    Default Wine issues

    I installed WINE to attempt to install some windows applications. I can't find the program or application of Wine to install?

    I then installed WINE-DOORS and tried to install some applications.

    1. When I tried to install winRAR from the menu, it always comes up with REPORTED 1 TIME: INSTALLATION FAILED: INSTALLING APPLICATION: WINRAR v 3.71 RETURNED 512.

    What is this? I click on help and nothing happens.

    2. I tired to install something simple like backup Exec 11., but I can't even get Wine-Doors to do anything with it. What am I missing?

    Are you tried to install these programs without Wine-doors?
    Take a look to the Wine how-to: Wine - openSUSE.
    Usage is very simple:
    Code:
    #wine /patch/to/the/exe/file.exe

    Maybe you need something from codeweavers?

    www.codeweavers.com

    Simplifies the whole wine thing a bit.

    BTW, don't be surprised if the apps don't run.
    WINE is extremely bug laden. I doubt if BackupExec
    will run. If it does, congrats! Not sure why you'd even
    need WinRAR, but okay.

    In all honesty, look for Linux apps that have the same functionality
    that you need from the above and use them if you can. You'll
    be better off in the long run.

    Thank you for the advice and info. BE will not work (****, still need a windows station).

    As for the WinRar, jus testing and curious more than anything.

    What do you need BE to do? Are you trying to remotely backup something
    or backup the local machine?

    I preface EVERYTHING with I AM A LINUX NEWBIE

    I have a question. I installed a software that I can not find a linux equivilent for (e-Sword bible software J-sword is a no go) and I can not find where it was installed. I have a -ink file on the desktop but it is not linked to anything.

    How/where do I find the files WINE installs?

    Have a look in .wine. It's a hidden folder,so,if you are using KDE,you need to click "show hidden files" under the view options

    You should also have a wine entry in kicker (start menu)
