Question Where are the executables?


I'm trying to use Wine and VMWare Workstation for needed windows apps but I can't find the executable program files... A file search has found some files that do not do anything (visible).
Who knows of a Linux equivalent of Partition Magic, able to manipulate partitions WITHOUT data loss?

MDK 8.2

I'm confused as to what your actual question is.

find / -name wine -print will give you some files one of which is the executable of wine.

I'll try again in plainer english...

I've installed Wine and VMWare from cd rpms but cannot find the paths to the executable files, how do I launch the apps? There are no icons or shortcuts installed automatically, but I'll take care of that if I can find the files...

they should already be on your path, so should run from a terminal just fine. if not then do a

find / -iname vmware

or

locate vmware

If it came as an rpm (at least you claim so) run
rpm -qs wine
it will give you all the files that were installed with wine and thier locations.

Thanks, it worked !!

Now Wine.

But...
on starting one app, it asks for MSVBVM50.DLL, how to add or find?

and on starting another after trying to build the font metrics it crashes with a font table message.

Any ideas?
