How do you use WINE and how do you install things on the C:?


I installed it a while ago but haven't bothered to use it much, and before I installed Kubuntu and had Ubuntu, it worked fine, I could use Notepad and browse the C:... But, now when I go to "Browse C:" it says "Unable to run the command specified. The file or folder file:///home/theif519/Documents/.wine/dosdevices/c: does not exist." What do I do? I tried reinstalling Wine but that didn't do any good. Do I manually make the directory?

Hello,

From your information below your username I'm assuming you're using Ubuntu. This Ubuntu documentation should get you started.

Kind regards,

Eric

I right-clicked the Kickstart menu and selected Menu Editor and changed the directory selected for "Browse Virtual C:" and changed xfce to Dolphin
