i have downloaded winex 3-3.1 but...
After the installation of the rpm when i run wine i get

wine: lstat /home/ioannidis/.wine/wineserver-linux/socket : No such file or directory

I searched the internet and i found that i should type
wineserver -p

After that when i run a program with wine i get

XIO: fatal IO error 0 (Success) on X server ":0.0"
after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.

Can anyone understand what's going on?

I got the same problems and it seems like something to do with pthreads.

I downloaded a script from the above site and executed it and winex was installed perfectly. Make sure you download the special script marked *Attention*

Have you set your DISPLAY environment variable using:

export DISPLAY=:0.0

And run

xhost +

to make the X Server available to connect to?

scuffell, i tried to run as root export DISPLAY=:0.0 and then xhost + and the output is

linux:/home/ioannidis/Documents # export DISPLAY=:0.0
linux:/home/ioannidis/Documents # xhost +
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified

xhost: unable to open display ":0.0"

What are these commands for? Why i get this refusal?

As simple user the output is

ioannidis@linux:~/Documents> export DISPLAY=:0.0
ioannidis@linux:~/Documents> xhost +
access control disabled, clients can connect from any host

How can i enable it?
