wine: installing win apps. using wine on mandrake10
Its my first time using Linux(started this morning), and I have managed to install and configure MandrakeLinux10 without any problems. Everything is working fine, network(already have 5 Linux machines on network now), internet-thru a router, and hardware(hopefully no problems here), etc.
**I was amazed. everything was done in less than 20mins!!!!**
My main problem is with wine. I have read the documentation on WineHQ's site but I cant seem to make it work.
I installed WINE from the installer CD(4cds) packaged with my mandrake installer.
Anyway, i get this error when trying to install programs using WINE.
when installing Sierra CS Retail
install path: c:\sierra\
when i run: wine path\to\windows\prog.exe
- installshield runs normally, as it does using MS OSes.
but when copying of files start I get this error:
"The file C:\SIERRA\COUNTER-STRIKE\UNWISE.EXE could not be opened. Please check that your disk is not full and that you have access to the destination directory. Path not found.'
so i tried manually copying the files to "/var/lib/wine" which was the path for DRIVE C:\ (Wine configurator), but it seems write protected.
********(excuse my ignorance, I am a MSDOS/MSWIN user since 1988)********
You can stop trying to install CS retail. Even if you can manage the application to start it will crash
when you want to start a game. Use steam instead.
You should have a config file in .wine subdirectory of your home dir. It has quite clear syntax. There are sections describing emulated drives. In short, it says that c: is /opt/wine or something like that. Example:
If you don't want that, you can change permissions on that dir (browse to it in konqueror, permission are in Properties menu after right-clicking on a dir). Make sure your user has write access. In most cases it means that you may:
a) change ownership to yourname user
b) set 'write' permission for 'others'
