Ares on Wine


I just downloaded ares p2p and am running it with WINE. I can download files and share them but the default location is c:/programfiles/ares and when I try to change it to file:/homeaarond/shared it doesnt go there and when I quit ares and get back in it goes to a windows location although it is a 100% linux system. How can I get it to download to my specified location? Thank You!

WINE simulates drives that is created in ~/.wine/dosdevices, so you have to think as a Windows user when running WINE. In ~/.wine/dosdevices you can add a symbolic link to /home/aarond/shared. For example, go into ~/.wine/dosdevices and type ln -s ../../shared e::. Then in the program, specify drive E:. All the files will be saved in that location. WINE has the same limitation as Windows on how many drives you can have, but WINE has support for symbolic links to access other devices.

There are P2P file sharing programs in Linux that can access multiple P2P servers all at once. Which one is best is up to you.

right after I posted this i figured it out. If I browse download destinations I can choose C: or Z: and Z has the linux folders on it.

On a different note, when I install windows programs on linux with wine which dir. to I put them in? ie:/home /lib /bin so on

Thank You

I have been running everything like it came. I do know that it is still in early developmental stages and many programs do not work yet. Not many I try to use work either.
