    Default wine in opensuse 11.1 [ plug and play ]

    Hello, [ to noobs pecially ]

    I am back to my all time fav OpenSuSe after a long gap of like 1.5 ~ 2 years.

    Just got working Wine!!! Yes!!!! It was my dream!!
    As being windows guy I am never able to go through scripts in Linux but thanx to OpenSuSe 11.1 for integrating Wine by default.

    Tips for noobs :

    For reference use this link which is very helpful >
    FAQ - The Official Wine Wiki

    Now the question how to run CHM file in OpenSuSe.
    - Hopefully your windows drives are mounted
    - Create a dir under /home called windows_installers
    - copy the CHM file in it
    - Open Konsole and type > wine start your_file.chm
    - It may will ask to install Gecko plug-in. Let it install and you can read CHM file in Linux.
    - Similarly go to and download installer.exe of ysmger
    - Type wine start ysmgr.exe and you will see windows installer program of Yahoo! messenger
    - wine creates a profile for you under > /home/your_name/.wine
    - under .wine it create c:/ drive and program files under that. When ever you install any windows program it goes there.


    [ p/s: Incredible achivement for me. I am going to demostrate this to some of my friends who run internet cafe/internet pub. This probabbly will encourage them to remove windows and install freeware OpenSuSe 11.1 . Many thanx to OpenSuSe developement team ]
