Have some command line questions


I've been trying to install a Windows program into Ubuntu 8.10 linux using Wine. The Wine instructions say "Type wine the-name-of-the-application.extension (e.g. wine realplayer.exe)", but I'm unable to get past $ cd Downloads with the cd command. Keeps returning "No such file or directory". How do you get to a .exe file that's within a main file within say a Downloads folder?

Also tried:
jacatone@eMax:~/Downloads$ wine frd.exe
wine: could not load L"C:\\windows\\system32\\frd.exe": Module not found

Tried it using sudo and got: "wine is not owned by you"

Another question. Within the terminal what's the command to get back to the $ prompt when there's just a blinking cursor or >, like after using a "man" command?

Thanks.

Hi,

I don't use 'WINE' but it sounds like a path problem to me. If the 'DOWNLOADS' is off the '/' then you would specify;

Code:
~#cd /DOWNLOADS/myfiles
'man cd'

For the terminal you could use 'reset' or 'clear'. You should 'man command'.
