    Hi,
    How can I install a program under Wine, so that this program can be used by all users in this machine?

    You could simply copy the entire .wine folder from your account into the home folders of the other users.

    You would have to change the ownership of ALL the files and folders though, otherwise it won't work.

    Another way would be to change the permissions of your .wine folder and contents to be world read/writeable, then simply create a link in the other user's home folders to your .wine folder.

    The advantage to the second one is that you can easily change/add progs that everyone else can use. The big downside is that any other user can mess up your copy of .wine!
