    Default Installing progam under wine


    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!
