kazaalite.....almost there? how to start it?


I'm pessimistic to the core, but I followed the intructions for installing KazaaLite and it installed...everything went okay. I'm now at the point where I am supposed to open up a console and enter " cd /home/trinity/.wine/c/Program Files/Kazaa Lite/wine Kazaa.exe

only thing is I get a "bash: cd: /home/trinity/.wine/c/Program: No such file or directory"

the directory does exist. is it coming up as not found because it's hidden? that's the only thing I can think of.

can anyone think of what else to try to see if kazaa will start up? I'm willing to abandon it to try again but need to see if it did indeed fail miserably before going at it again (w/ yet anotther set of instructions, etc.)

and I know there are tons of threads about kazaalite. I did a search for this issue before I posted.......so sorry for beating the dead horse.

thanks for any assistance, I'm running RedHat 9.0

to clarify (after reading the frankscorner.org explanation of it)

I need to get into

file:/home/trinity/.wine/c/Program Files/Kazaa Lite

to run the kpp.exe file. I can't seem to get into the directory at all though no matter how many different types of cd's I pull. its driving me absolutely mad. sigh.

You need to used \ to get into a directory with a space in it ie
file:/home/trinity/.wine/c/Program\ Files/Kazaa\ Lite/

otherwise linux thinks the directory is just called Program/

I believe you can also used จจ speech marks to cd to that directory

Few things. First, why did you put your windows directory in .wine? Doesn't matter but easier to have in ~/c.

Also, use tab completion to make stuff easier. For instance try this. (Starting in home)

$cd .wi [tab] c [tab] Pro [tab] Ka [tab]

Much easier, after a while it will become such of a habit you will start to do it in places your not supposed to like editing a config file or on irc.

he put it there cause it is set there in a lot of tutorials on setting up the fake win drive that say this, and if he used winetools thats where it is set up as default..and to cap this off, what does it matter where its at? you don't need to access it any more than once just to see if that app works when you install it, then from there you just make a link to your panel or desktop.
