wine
« on: May 27, 2011, 06:21:21 PM »
Hello,

I have installed the extension Wine.

I have used it with some win32 tools.

I was wondering, when i am following the win32 installer and it gives
the default  install directory of .....

c:(backslash) this windows tool.....

what should i change the default location to?

If i leave it as the default location, after successfully installing any win32 tool, i click the wine option in the TCL menu but nothing happens and  no program titles are shown.

I can run the win32 tool for the first time  (e.g. spotify music tool) and it works fine in TCL but
after closing it i can never find the executable again. I can't run Spotify again because
i don't know how to find the icon or title in TCL.

My computer has a winXP hard drive in it but i am running TCL from CD boot.

i hope this is not a bad question

thanks

Vince.

Wine installs desktop icons of the apps to a freedesktop dir under .local, IIRC.

Alternatively, wine "C:\program files\spotify\spotify.exe" where that is the installed path (browse under .wine if you want to check)
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Off-topic much?   ::)

Besides from the original post regarding a specific extension belonging somewhere into TCE subforum rather than in TCB...
