    wine basics


    Ok, I have installed wine, I think, I was trying to do it normally, through an rpm command in the terminal, but I found a link to just do a windoze style 'double click and run' it is for FC4.

    Now it says that it is installed, how do I find it? And how would I go about installing a game, for instance, I want to install the gaming client Steam.

    Any help is appreciated, thanks.

    *edit, I have found how to install .exe's using Wine, but how do you run the .exe once it is installed ?

    Thanks.

    if the programs installed to one of your wine drives, you should be able to execute it with the command
    Code:
    wine <program-name>
    ex: starting diablo 2
    its installed in : "/usr/share/wine-c/Diablo II/Game.exe"
    so you would do
    Code:
    wine game
    hope this helps

    um i installed wine and it runs. I tried to install pspvideo 9 a video converter. i was able to install it but now cant run it because i have no wine-c directory all i have in my shared usr dir is wine.

    do i have to install wine as the root user? or is i just screwed?
