Wine for Porteus

Post#1 by blaster44 » 21 Nov 2012, 15:08

I need wine for running simple apps from windows(like NES emulator, etc). But i can't install this :/ Im green in linux. Can somebody make/share package for me?

I tried modules from oter repos in package manager, but without effects. Only default settings was restored.

ok, I simply copied wine module from this version. it works, but... I must run exe files trough task manager. it's not comfortable. maybe exist any method to connect wine with file manager? or method for running exes from terminal?

If you want execute windows executable files with wine over terminal you need write 'wine firefox.exe' or 'wine other windows program.exe'

In porteus-1.1-fbox 'wine' work normally with double click mouse, i think you need add mime types to windows programs.

Select your .exe file && "Open with" && find wine executable && define wine binary as primary choice for similar file with .exe extension. Easy :)

If you are going to use wine, do not forget to load an antivirus :D

Open a terminal and type

Code: Select all

whereis wine
The output of this command will be the path to your wine binary and also the one you will set as default choice when opening an .exe with specific app.
