Question How to safely integrate and use a Windows Emulator in Bodhi?


Hello folks,

I blew up my system more then once with Wine when trying to use it on Ubuntu Studio a while ago.

Now, all new to Bodhi and anyway rather a Linux Newbie, I would like to make sure that WineHQ works well when I install or rather integrate it in Bodhi.

I want to use windows software, e.g. my mouse configuration software that comes as an EXE File. There may be other programs to use.

My system: hp elitebook, i5 2,3 Ghz, 256 GB HDD, 4 GB DDR3

Kind regards,
Steffen

You cannot integrate it, you just need to install it. But not all of the exe files work perfectly.

"Integration" was meant practically, not literally...

Nevertheless: Is it usually possible to simply install WineHQ and uninstall it without any hassle?

In the past, I found it weird how Wine reacted in Ubuntu Studio, that it did not show a GUI as I would have expected it.

So basically, WineHQ is all about enabling a running Linux OS to cope with EXE-files software-wise - given the fact that one had installed it properly?

Wine is simple an executable and has no GUI. There are several GUIs out there that work with it but wine itself is cli only. WineHQ is a web site, not an app as far as I know.
