Wine on Porteus

Greetings,
Can you install Wine successfully on Porteus? Where do you find it and what is the process? Is it easy to use for running Windows programs?
Thanks

Porteus does support wine modules. Some are found on USM, some searching the forum. I do better with GeckoMono versions myself. Once activated to run a 32bit Windows program simply enter wine before the program name.

Code: Select all

wine /mnt/sda6/Users/Ed/'My Utilities'/PopTrayU/PopTrayU.exe

Yes, Wine works nice with Porteus. Just need to download this txa package and convert it to xzm (right click):

If you want to run x86 Windows applications, you'll also need lib32compat.

:%) My wine module is 300+MB, the txa file is 50-MB. What's missing?

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ ls -lgth /mnt/sda6//porteus3.2/Guest/Downloads/*wine*
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root  48M Dec  9 16:36 /mnt/sda6//porteus3.2/Guest/Downloads/wine-2.22-x86_64-1sg.txz*
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root 320M May 19  2017 /mnt/sda6//porteus3.2/Guest/Downloads/wine-2.4-x64-3.2-GeckoMono-1.xzm*
