i have actually another problem i finally arrived to launch wine but now wine says me:

Unable to find winesetup in your PATH or in /opt/wine/bin:
I am not able to configure Wine.

If winesetup is being distributed in a separate package
that is not installed yet on your system, then please install this
winesetup can also be downloaded from

If you choose to not use winesetup for configuration, then
you can find information on how to prepare a Wine config file manually
in the Wine README / README.gz file or in the Wine User Guide.

can some one please help me? i aint got the winesetup and the winecfg says me :

The winecfg tool is not yet complete and does not actually alter configuration

If you want to alter the way Wine works, look in the ~/.wine/config file for more information.
i have looked in my ~/.wine/ dir but i aint got the config file...

does someone have the solution??

please help me... :'(
