    Trying to figure out wine


    hey i have open suse 10.2

    and i used ksmarttray a different version of zen updater i believe.

    either way, i searched for wine. it downloaded from the repository, and it says that its installed.

    however, i cant find it in my applications or anything.

    how do i know its there? what do i do if it IS there?

    Execute this
    Code:
    wine --version
    Check this Wine User Guide.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    If wine is installed you use it by typing:

    Code:
    wine /path/to/executable.exe

    Hello, I am a very new newbie to Ubunto. I have tried to install wine but with no success. If I am correct I have some dependencies that need resolving. This is what I have done thus far....

    sudo apt-get install wine
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
    requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
    distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
    or been moved out of Incoming.

    Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
    the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
    that package should be filed.
    The following information may help to resolve the situation:

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    wine: Depends: binfmt-support (>= 1.1.2) but it is not installable
    Depends: libaudio2 but it is not installable
    E: Broken packages


    I have done this within synapics and tells me the same thing. Anyone care to take a stab? Thanks for your help and hope that this doesn't put anyone off. Still learning you know....[smile]

    Yeah, the wine user guide (as suggested above by casper) and the wine faq are about the best help you can get for actually using wine. Good luck with getting it running the way you want it.

    I may not be understanding. I looked in this and could find nothing. I have gone every route... I have tried to install with in synaptics and gives me this:

    wine:
    Depends: binfmt-support (>=1.1.2) but it is not installable
    Depends: libaudio2 but it is not installable

    Wine has been installed correctly in your machine. Navigate to the folder having Windows .exe file and execute that with wine.
    Code:
    wine <.exe file>
