Need help with wine


Hi,
I have installed Kubuntu(KDE) and I used synaptic to download and install
wine 0.2xxxx that was listed, but I really have never used this emulator and
don't know how..Has anyone used it in ubuntu/kubuntu? I would appreciate some help and or suggestions..I would like to ultimately run DVD shrink,video inspector and other small windows progs..I have looked online but become even more confused with all the different information...
Thanks in advance,
jolphil

I use different distro and compiled wine from source so available parts of wine for me may wary (or may not , but take a look at wine man page
Code:
#man wine
Programs are run by typing
Code:
wine wine options /path/to/program program options
on most cases
Code:
wine /path/to/program
should work just fine

All you should have to do is:
Code:
sudo apt-get install wine
then
Code:
wine <installer>.exe
to run an installer to install a program you want to try. Programs will be installed in ~/.wine/fake_windows/Program Files You can navigate to the directory that has the installed program executable and run the program with:
Code:
wine <program>.exe

Hi,
Thank you for the tips...
I can get the programs I want to open but they cannot find the cdron..For example,DVDshrink can look at the DVD and then shrink the video to a smaller file size..It thus becomes important to be able to see the DVD drive or it will not work..Same idea for DVD decryptor and other windows programs that require reading the dvd drive..
Any suggestions?
