You know there is a gui for wine to config it. It should be in your panel menu. Also, to run an exe(or other ext.) with wine, right click on it and choose open with. Then choose wine. Note: you will have to run wine by itself to config it before you do this.

The <program> you're trying to run needs to be in the current directory unless you specify a directory, I believe.

are there any errors when u run any of the install steps? Normally they give you a status number at the end (usually 0 for pass). Also, what dist and desktop are you using(you can put this in your profile settings for everyone to see)? In kde, until you restart the program won't show up in the menu. If you restart and still don't see it, do a file search for wine, Then look in the dirs shown and see if you can find a executable for the gui. Make sure you have the full package for wine too. In many programs you have to download several tar or tar.gz files to get the full program. Did you read the install instructions?

ok I went into the readme file again and here is what i need

Basic requirements:
You need to have the X11 development include files installed
(called xlib6g-dev in Debian and XFree86-devel in Red Hat).

I cant seem to find that with apt-get install or with synoptic

Build tool requirements:

Of course you also need "make" (most likely GNU make). have it

You also need flex version 2.5 or later and bison. got it

Install the libxml2 package to get a functional msxml implementation. I also have this..



another question

when upgrading or updating i always get this why

if your using kde go into kpackage to look for the lib it says it needs. other than that I don't know what else you can do if you followed the instructions exactly.
