How do I edit my Wine configuration file?


I installed the latest version of wine from winehq.org, but I can't find my wine.conf file.
Thanks, Noah

It's in /home/your_ID/.wine
Notice the . in front of the name, this is a hidden directory, you can acces it through your file browser by selecting "Show hidden files" or through a terminal by typing the exact path.
Then just type
$ kwrite config (replace kwrite with your favorite editor)

Not sure if it s copied to ~/.wine automaticaly in Slack, if u dont have it in your home directory u can find a sample configuration file at /usr/doc/Wine-xxxxxx/samples. Just copy it to ~/.wine/

hey i'm having similar issue with wine. i installed it from source and created all the directories. it said in the README to copy the config file to .wine directory + system.ini and win.ini (or sys)(from /usr/wine/doc/samples or whatever dir they said) files to Windows directory in the .wine dir. However I only found config + system.ini files and there was no presence of the second ini (or sys) file. Any ideas where i can get it. thanks

You arent supposed to copy system.ini and win.ini do .wine directory. You have to copy them to directory "Windows" on your virtual C drive (specified in ~/.wine/config)

Edit: win.ini should be in samples dir as well (according to official HowTo). Anyway I dont have it there either so I have no clue how I got it to my windows directory

This is my win.ini maybe it will work for u

The only chances I did in my config file are the settings of the virtual drives (rest is the same as in the template file).

Quote:
[Drive A]
;;"Path" = "/mnt/fd0"
"Type" = "floppy"
"Label" = "Floppy"
"Filesystem" = "win95"
"Serial" = "87654321"
"Device" = "/dev/fd0"

[Drive C]
"Path" = "/win0r"
"Type" = "hd"
"Label" = "windoze"
"Filesystem" = "win95"

[Drive S]
"Path" = "/mnt/cdrom"
"Type" = "cdrom"
"Label" = "CD-Rom"
"Filesystem" = "win95"
; make sure that device is correct and has proper permissions !
"Device" = "/dev/hdd"

[Drive E]
"Path" = "/tmp"
"Type" = "hd"
"Label" = "Tmp Drive"
"Filesystem" = "win95"

;;[Drive F]
;;"Path" = "%HOME%"
;;"Type" = "network"
;;"Label" = "Home"
;;"Filesystem" = "win95"

;;[Drive Z]
;;"Path" = "/"
;;"Type" = "hd"
;;"Label" = "Root"
;;"Filesystem" = "win95"
