Trouble Installing Wine on Ubuntu 8.04


After installing wine on a dual boot Ubuntu/Vista HP Pavillion I run wineconfig in the terminal.
The installer tells me I do not have any Windows directories built so it will now build them. The result is a long series if failures to create directories. A small sample follows: err:wineboot:ProcessStartupItems Couldn't get desktop folder.
errrocess:init_windows_dirs directory L"C:\\windows" could not be created, error 2
errrocess:init_windows_dirs directory L"C:\\windows\\system32" could not be created, error 3
The config program ends with a final message :mike@mike-desktop:~$ ICE default IO error handler doing an exit(), pid = 6172, errno = 11

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

the preferred - and for me the only - command would be:
winecfg

wine should just work after running that command - what did you want to do?

Trying to install with either 'winecfg' or 'wineconfig' (from KDGuidance (I think))all result in error messages of 'Error 2' and 'Error 3' seeming to indicate that it cannot create the virtual DLL libraries.

well - if I run "winecfg" it pops up a window where you can configure the audio-drivers which should be used, the drives available, graphics modes and drivers, dll's to override with the original ones (so long as you legitimately can use them) and the version of windows that should be told to a particular program.

What are you trying to install?
winecfg is just the means to configure the behaviour of wine - not a means to install anything.

You install programs by executing the xxx.exe file just like in windows:
Code:
wine ./install.exe
(as an example)
before that you should have configured wine - using winecfg

Maybe the version of wine you are trying to use is not of the recent kind? They just released 1.0
Or you might experience an entirely different problem.

Does winecfg work for you as I described here?

What are you trying to install and how?
