How to install and use WINE on SUSE 9.1


I would like to know how to install WINE on my computer. I downloaded both the WINE rpm and the WINE development tools rpm from WINEHQ for SUSE linux 9.1. I also installed them with YAST I would liketo know what I have to do now to be able to use it.

Can someone tell me step by step what to do?

Providing your config file was set up correctly by YaST, then you go to a terminal, cd to where your execuatable is and type 'wine [exename.exe]. That's what I do on Slackware anyway.

I tried doing that and this is what I got, maybe I am missing something:

jose@rn103188:~> cd /home/jose
jose@rn103188:~> wine chemsk50.exe
Warning: the specified Windows directory L"C:\\Windows" is not accessible.
Warning: the specified System directory L"C:\\Windows\\System" is not accessible.
Please use the registry key HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG\Software\Fonts\LogPixels
to set the screen resolution and remove the "Resolution" entry in the config file
fixme:win:SetWindowTextA cannot set text "Unpacking ACD/Labs Software..." of other process window (nil)
jose@rn103188:~>


by looking at this does it seem that I may have not installed something properly or am I missing a component?

by the way if you want to try to see for your self the program that I am trying to install using wine is

Chemsketch 5.0 which suppossedly on the ACD labs site is workable in linux.

To me it looks like your config file is messed up. Take a look at XWine (has a GUI method of configuring WINE, you want a virtual Windows drive if it asks) - http://darken33.free.fr/index.php?cat=2&rub=21 (probably installable through YaST). Installing WINE properly doesn't guarantee that your program will work properly though, it is still considered alpha quality by the authors.

thanks for taking the time to help me out,

I have a question I downloaded Xwine and when I got on the shell prompt and typed xwine this is what I got:

jose@rn103188:~> xwine

jose@rn103188:~>

I installed the Wine that came with my SUSE 9.1 distribution CD this time (to make sure that they were the proper files) and then I installed xwine fromt the site you gave me. Do I have to download the GNOME desktop now for this to work?

What is the difference between the KDE desktop and Gnome? I just want to make sure that all the stuff that I have installed on my computer wont be erased or be incompatible if I download GNOME



I hope you can help me,

Did the XWine window still not popup? That is pretty much the output that you expect when you run a GUI app from the terminal.

If you install GNOME, it won't erase anything. GNOME and KDE are actually fairly similar, though I find GNOME to be slightly faster, while KDE has more programs and is easier to configure. If you do install GNOME, I would recommend doing it through YaST since it can be a real pain sometimes. If the window doesn't appear, you can try installing GNOME.

the Xwine window did popup but it was blank, I could only see a pull down menu labeled start and a kill and refresh button.

Should I re-install Xwine?

I am sorry that I am persistent with the questions it's just that I need the chemistry program for my studies.

thanks

I wouldn't normally say this, but if the program is for your studies, it may be worth using Windows. It would save you a lot of bother (which may all go to waste if it doesn't work on WINE) and it will work more reliably on Windows.

If you would still like to try WINE, have you tried the button/dropdown on the window to see what it does? There isn't much point re-installing XWine or installing GNOME if it got that far. I don't have it in front of me so I'm afraid that I can't investigate what it going on fully.
