I'm new to Linux, so please bear with me. I installed PlayOnLinux, which then asked me to insall Wine so I did that as well. I installed Amazon Kindle via POL but it refused to launch, just saying that POL had encountered an error. So I uninstalled it to start over. I then downloaded the installer.exe file for Kindle, created a directory for it in "~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Amazon" and placed the installer.exe there. Next, I navigated to the Amazon folder in the terminal and ran "wine KindleForPC-installer.exe" which seemed to work fine. However, the install placed the launcher file in "/root/Desktop" and the My Kindle Content folder in "/root". Kindle will launch from there and work correctly, but I really don't want it in the root directory where I don't have ownership. To put it simply, I want the launcher and content folder in my home directory like everything else. Since I don't have ownership of root though, I can't even move the files to the desired location.
Very frustrated. Can anyone help with this?
