Postby jhouse59 on Sat Mar 07, 2009 9:09 pm

I'm using Mint 5. I've got Wine 1.0 installed. Can someone tell me how to install programs in Wine?

Should be able to click the .exe and it will run w/ Wine.
However, I havn't used Wine in over a year so I'm not sure.
If not, try running winefile from terminal and navigating to the file you wish to run.

Just double click the setup.exe right from the mint desktop. Let mint and wine do the rest.
