the permissions is 777, and the C drive in the user 'ghaleb' home

the script is so simple :
Code:
wine /home/ghaleb/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/ACAD2000/acad.exe

You'd better have permissions 777 on
/home/ghaleb/.wine
and all subdirectories, too.

But really, sharing a .wine directory like that
is not a good idea, because it provides no
protection against other users overwriting
your data. i.e. it's completely insecure.
Worse yet, the wine registry could
become corrupt if two users try to update it
at the same time.

Better to have a script (like the one for Picasa)
that uses symlinks to a readonly copy of the
installed files, and creates a .wine for each
user. Then no 777 hackery is needed.

BTW your script should be 755, not 777. No need to
let others edit your script.
