I recently installed like every single package of wine on the “install programs” thingamabob. The only thing is that in my applications, it doesn’t show wine. I went to the main site to download it and this is what I get
I do not know what a thingambob is. Perhaps you could use some superior terminology?
But my guess is you did this all wrong, and simply added a bunch of totally useless bloat. … sorry for the hard speculation … but seriously, blindly installing is NOT the linux way and it will eventually land you in a massive load of trouble.
The weird thing is I tried setting up the game “Zork” which is basically ancient. I opend up “open with other application” and went to the command line for the “setup.exe”. At the command line, I typed in wine setup.exe. After doing that, my screen blinked a couple of times and that was it. I tried it again and it did the same thing?
Same thing happened after I tried a different game. (Guild Wars)
I do not use any of those examples you are quoting, so I can not offer advice wrt them.
Here is a simple example of wine. It (this example) is using an MS-Windows program called autostitch. I put the executeable “autostitch.exe” in the directory /home/oldcpu/panorama-software. All I do to run it is what you see in this video (there is no audio): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jwJnjxy21rk)

Please try % wine winefile % That is a handy internal tool to the wine
package. If that comes up try using it to run the setup programs.
