Question about installing dvdshrink through wine?


Hello everyone, I just installed wine so that I can make backups of my dvds to dvd-r's. I am running into a problem where when I try to istall dvdshrink, the wizard asks me for a location to install the files as if I were istalling it in windows (c:\programfiles\dvdshrink). Well, i though t linux uses a different file heirarchy? What am i supposed to do? Why can't i tell it to istall it to my home directory?

try it

I'm far from an expert on wine but as I understand it it "maps" the windows filesystem on top of the linux filesystem so that program run under wine cannot tell the difference.
I installed DVDShrink in the default folder c:\program files\dvd shrink and it worked like a charm. (of course the actual folder is /home/user/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/DVD\ Shrink/)

Try is and let us know... :-)
