DVD Shrink Mixed with wine


I have just installed The newist version of wine and dvd shrink on my computer (Fedora Core 3). Every thing works fine exept the fact that when i try to do a full disk backup, it wont let me select the files off my HDD. All that happens is a little window pops up and says

__________________________________

When i click desktop nothing drops down or happens, it just highlights.

When i try to do a Re-Auther (which i don't want) it lets me open the files just fine, but it is in the right main window that show you the inforamtion about the selected clip (Language/Asudio Choice - ETC).

What am i doing wroung.

Actually, you aren't doing anything wrong. The file selector does not work in Wine.

You have to specify your file in the command line.

Actually I am doing this from memory. When I posted before, I rooted around on the hard drives and didn't come up with an iso. I had a DVD movie laying there on the desk, and I popped it into the drive and tried to access it, but I got I/O errors from it. I didn't bother to go dig up another DVD movie to try, so I just posted. I wanted to go through the command sequence as I posted so that I was sure I was doing it right.

Now I am at another computer (my XP laptop) and I still have to do this from memory.

So, from memory, what you do is open a shell window, then CD to the directory that has the DVD Shrink in it. This would by default be your "Fake C Drive/Program Files/DVD Shrink" directory (you access it using Linux format).

From that directory, you would start DVD Shrink in Wine, specifying the location of your iso in Windows format, like this:

wine DVD\ Shrink\ 3.2.exe z:\\path\\to\\my\\iso

The backslash is used to escape the subsequent character, telling the command line parser to literally use the subsequent character, and not to interpret that character as it ordinarily would be interpreted by the command line parser.

Thus, you enter DVD\ Shrink\ 3.2.exe to tell the system that the command is "DVD Shrink 3.2.exe" and the spaces are part of the command.

Then z:\\path\\to\\my\\iso is to be interpreted literally as z:\path\to\my\iso You have to use the backslash to escape the subsequent backslash because the command line parser would otherwise interpret the one backslash as the character telling it to escape the subsequent character, and things would get confused.
