Getting more out of Wine with Winetricks version 20120308

Posted 04-04-2012 at 01:26 AM by stretchedthin

This is my 3rd look at Winetricks. I've come to rely on it to get the three Windows applications I have not learned to live without installed. What are they Google Sketchup, Audible Manager, and Steam. Winetricks does a lot more than just those and I encourage you to use it.

Desura calls itself "digital distribution service for gamers". If your thinking, "hey that's like Steam!" Well, your right. The difference being Desura does not pretend that Linux does not exist, and I love them for that. So, I've given Desura a try and you can see the results in my screencast...
