How do i play plants vs zombies once i get wine up and running
i bought plants vs zombies from the store, and when i tried to install...autorun/autosetup/autoinstall..i found out that i couldnt, but i could install wine and it would let me play my game. so i did that...and when i click on applications...click on other..click on winetricks...it asked me what do i want to do...i clicked on select plantsvszombies (plants vs Zombies)then ok, then another box pops up and asks me, what would you like to do to this wineprefix? Install a windows dll or component, install a font, change settings, run winecfg, run regedit, run taskmgr, run a commandline shell (for debugging), browse files, or delet all data and applications inside this wineprefix. could anyone please help me with the next step?
Most modern distros mount CDs automatically, but in order to know if it's mounted, you can execute the following command from a terminal window:
Should show you all mounted file systems. Something else: be aware that the setup.exe file may be anywhere inside the CD, not necessarily in its root directory, so first you will have to check where it is located before executing the command I gave you before, since you must use the complete path to it. So, if for example, it is inside a directory named 'DATA', you should enter the following command: wine /media/cdrom/DATA/setup.exe.
About the 'sudo' command, you don't need it since wine programs are installed inside your user directory (not system wide).
now, when you say (Something else: be aware that the setup.exe file may be anywhere inside the CD, not necessarily in its root directory, so first you will have to check where it is located before executing the command I gave you before, since you must use the complete path to it) where do i look for it exactly? do i open the cd and look for the files, then look for the setup.exe file?
do i open the cd and look for the files, then look for the setup.exe file?
Exactly. Then you must figure out what's the complete path to the file. Judging from the output of your 'df -h', I guess it should be somewhere inside '/media/rene/PVZGYPCMC-EN'. So, the path to give to wine should be either '/media/rene/PVZGYPCMC-EN/setup.exe' or '/media/rene/PVZGYPCMC-EN/some_other_directory/setup.exe', depending on where the file is located. Just out of curiosity, what is the output of the following command?:
The only .exe (executable) file you show in that directory is: PopCDRun.exe
You have three directories and the setup.exe may be in one of those: DirectX, images, installers, most likely 'installers'.
Navigate to the /media/rene/PVZGYPCMC-EN directory and its sub-directories and take a look, using the terminal or the file manager for whichever distribution of Linux you are using. You might look for a text file to seee if there is a README or install file with some type of instructions.
when i type '/media/rene/PVZGYPCMC-EN/popcdrun.txt/setup.exe'....it says bash: /media/rene/PVZGYPCMC-EN/popcdrun.txt/setup.exe: not a directory
i tried all three of the exe directories and (DirectX), (images), (installer)/setup.exe says no such file or directory.
when i try to click on a sub-directory named DirectX EULA.txt. when i double click it, it does nothing. So when i right click it, it asks, open with sudo at the top..then under that it says open with ---> kate, LibreOffice Writer, notepad, pluma, and under that it says other application.
