Wine


Could someone please explain to me in plain English how to run a program through Wine once it is installed and I know what directory it's in?

what program are you trying to run?

if the program installed successfully, just do
cd /location/of/program
wine prog.exe

sometimes a program will need special commands like
wine war3.exe -- -opengl

check your other thread

get into a terminal (right click on the desktop, new terminal); become familiar with tabbed autocompletion (type first few letters of dir or file and hit TAB; also make sure you use caps when necessary, linux is Case Sensitive)
do
cd /home/max/.wine/fake[TAB]/Prog[TAB]/Adobe[TAB]
wine Filename.exe
