Thread: wine repositories

  1. #1

    Default wine repositories

    "I found this page:

    Index of /repositories/Emulators:/Wine/openSUSE_11.0

    I'm a little confused
    I need more information, but then again, so do you, that isn't very descriptive

    do I have to download all of those?

    ARGH, I want to shoot myself


    maybe I'll move this thread to applications"


    I moved this here from games, don't know why I'm having such a hard time with wine

    originally decided not to mess with it too much, but now I'm wanting to use it
    anyway the page didn't look too confusing at first, but now I am struggling with it a little bit

    i looked for a video on how to do this, and it only showed me the ubuntu installation version, i guess i start with 'applications' which I don't see on opensuse

    I should really just reformat with ubuntu but I don't have a blank cd-rom and get the feeling I'd screw up the installation somehow

    i guess you could say I'm a monkey with computers

    oh well

    Lets start from the scratch.
    1- Why you need that repo. Its for current updates of wine. Wine is there in the software management.
    2- What you want to achieve by use of Wine.
    3- You can find it in Kickoff menu. Just search for wine in the search bar.
    4- What problem do u face?

    It is the menu thingy on the bottom left

    Have you installed wine?

    Do you know how to? Hint Yast-Software Management

    The best place for information on if and how to run a Windows program will be found on the wine site.

    omg back to square one

    no i haven't installed it, i'll have to look at that link

    so the kicker is the same as 'start' basically


    why did this guy tell me just to access the kicker then? I got that list of repositories from the wine website to install it in the first place

    i'll have to check out the link you showed me

    btw how do I delete things in linux?


    and do downloads take longer with linux than in windows? Or is there something wrong if downloads are taking too long?

    -bash: wine: command not found
    linux-xfc5:~ # winecfg

    My kickoff menu (lower left) doesn't have wine because its not installed. If you don't find wine, try this:

    open a terminal (also called console or konsole)
    type su
    it will ask for your root password. Type it in and press enter.
    Finally, type
    zypper in wine

    Wait for it to install, it takes a couple of minutes.
