Can't put ddeml.dll into folder with wine


Can anyone give all the steps necessary to put a dll file into the folder that wine is in? I have wine installed and running, but cannot get it to print because of a missing dll file. I read a post that said to drop it into the same folder that the executable is in. I did finally find the executable and figured out what folder it was in, but when I try to put it there it says access denied. I have tried to log in as root and then I cannot find the dll.

First, put the dll somewhere you can find it for sure. Then log as root, and change to the directory you saved the dll. Then use the cp command to put it in the correct directory. When you are logging in as root, it's putting you in /home/root, I think. You probably have the dll saved in /home/regularuser....where regularuser is whatever your username on that box is.

Good luck...

Ah, let's see...

Sorry for changing the order of the words in your post, but I feel it's necessary for a better understanding.

First thing first. NEVER EVER use wine as root, unless you enjoy trouble. If you don't have permissions to write into a directory, then it's because you are not supposed to write to that directory. This can be for a number of reasons:
  • You are trying to write the dll file to some directory under /usr/, this is something you shouldn't be doing. Those directories are system directories and regular users do not need to touch anything there.
  • You are trying to write as a regular user on the wine dirs or your root acount. Not advisable, and, as I said, you shouldn't run wine as root anyway.
  • The permissions on your wine directory ($HOME/.wine/) are broken. Use the command below to fix them.

Code:
chown -R <yourusername>:users ~/.wine

The dll files usually go into one of these places:
  • $HOME/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/
  • The folder where your program resides, usually somewhere under $HOME/.wine/drive_c/Program files/
