Thread: Changing Wine Location?

  1. #1

    Question Changing Wine Location?

    Hi, I have installed and reinstalled wine about 3 times now, and the installation thinks the wine path for the "C:" drive is in my Documents folder. I am using OpenSUSE 11.4.

    This is the error I get:

    Unable to run the command specified. The file or folder file:///home/jonathan/Documents/.wine/dosdevices/c: does not exist.

    Is there a way I can change this to another directory? Also, when I look at the directories under ".wine", I see this:

    Code:
    jonathan@linux-v0wj:~> cd .wine
    jonathan@linux-v0wj:~/.wine> ls
    dosdevices  drive_c  system.reg  userdef.reg  user.reg
    jonathan@linux-v0wj:~/.wine> cd dosdevices
    jonathan@linux-v0wj:~/.wine/dosdevices> ls
    c:  z:
    jonathan@linux-v0wj:~/.wine/dosdevices> ls c:
    Program Files  users  windows
    jonathan@linux-v0wj:~/.wine/dosdevices>
    Thanks

    But what are you trying to do.
    You have wine installed and a .wine folder in /home/username/

    What command are you running?

    Open a terminal and run: winecfg

    Did you run the command winecfg (you can configure the paths for the drives
    with it)?

    how did you install it?

    did you install using YaST or zypper?

    did the wine rpm come from the standard repo for your openSUSE version?
    or from some other place?

    what version of wine did you try to install?
    which openSUSE 11.4 are you running 32 or 64? and which desktop
    environment, and version?

    I used zypper through the terminal.

    Yes, it came from the standard Repo.

    I installed 1.3.12 which is the default that installs from the repo. I am running openSUSE 11.4 32 bit with KDE.
    I ran "winecfg" through the terminal, and the configuration came up fine. However I don't know how to change the directories through the "Drives" tab.

    You didn't answer my question. What command are you trying to run?
    Wine is clearly installed.
    It sounds to me like you are having trouble with a application in wine

    First of all, what does your drive tab show? (You can make a screenshot and
    paste it at http://img.susepaste.org/ and post a link to it here).

    The application I am trying to run using wine is "Browse C: Drive". I have not installed anything on wine, but I should still be able to see the drive. When I open the drives tab of winecfg, this is what I see: SUSE Paste

    The configuration comes up completely fine. I am just not sure how to change the directory?

    This etting is correct (it is simply the default) starnge that you get the
    error message you posted. Can you do a simple test with notepad (which is
    part of the standard wine installation) to see if the same error happens?
    Code:
    wine notepad
    and
    Code:
    which wine
    rpm -q wine
    to see where wine is located and if the installed version is the correct
    one.

    Here is the output for the commands:

    Code:
    jonathan@linux-v0wj:~> wine notepad
    jonathan@linux-v0wj:~> which wine
    /usr/bin/wine
    jonathan@linux-v0wj:~> rpm -q wine
    wine-1.3.12-3.4.i586
    jonathan@linux-v0wj:~>
    The notepad opened up without any errors.
