Installing Wine - How to "Run" File?


Hi.

I am working on installing Wine on my laptop running Fedora Core 3. I have following the instructions found here:

http://www.linuxnetmag.com/en/issue3/m3wine1.html

Now, I reached a part that I am not sure what to do. In the article, it says to "start" a graphical frontend "with >> /usr/local/wine-990815/tools/wineconf.tcl "

Later on, it mentions that if you cannot use wineconf.tcl, to "start" another tool:

>> /usr/local/wine-990815/tools/wineinstall

My question is, how do you "start" either file? I have tried double-clicking the file and clicked on "Run in terminal" but nothing happened.

Thanks in advance for help.
Robert

Open a console and type in the command(s).

Boy, do I fill dumb. I didn't realize that >> was an actual command in Linux.

When I ran the commands in the terminal, this is what happened:

[robert@localhost ~]$ cd /usr/local/wine-20050111
[robert@localhost wine-20050111]$ cd tools
[robert@localhost tools]$ >> wineconf.tcl
bash: wineconf.tcl: Permission denied
[robert@localhost tools]$ su
Password:
[root@localhost tools]# >>wineconf.tcl
[root@localhost tools]#
[root@localhost tools]# >>wineinstall
[root@localhost tools]#

As indicated in the article, a graphical frontend was suppose to appear when wineconf.tcl was run but nothing appeared. And when I run wineinstall, a fine named wine.conf was suppose to be created in the folder /usr/local/etc but there is no file. Did I do something wrong?

Try this - to use wineinstall:
./wineinstall

for wineconf:
./wineconf

though as wineconf is a .tcl file, it may work as part of wineinstall and not as a standalone.

If it's a tcl file, you could also try:
# source wineinstall
Or maybe even
# wish wineinstall

Don't think this is the problem but if all else fails and you're desperate, you could try this.

I used winesetuptk to setup wine which works great. So if wineinstall fails, get you're hands on winesetuptk, and run it in the command line. Worked great for me.
