go to the file manager and navigate to your home folder. Enable show hidden files and check to make sure the .wine folder is there.

You didn't by any chance install the program as root? if you did your .wine folder would be in root and any programs you install would have to be run with root permission.
if you did that reinstall wine with normal user permission and re install your game.

Good luck

go to synaptic and simply install wine.

or to a terminal and do the following: one command at a time.

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get purge wine
sudo apt get install wine
once that's all finished let me know and I'll guide you through the installation of your game.
P.S. there is no guarantee that that came will run under wine.

it does not create the file until you actually install a program.

now go to a terminal and navigate to the spot where you downloaded the install file for the game you want to run in wine.
I assume it may be on a disk or in your download folder.
assuming it's in your down load folder it would look like this.

Code: Select all

cd /home/<your usr Name>/Downloads
now either open the folder where the install file is located.
and type: (note assuming the file is named setup)

Code: Select all

wine setup.exe 
allow it to install then you'll find .wine file in your home folder.
while in the terminal type the following to bring up the wind configuration file.

Code: Select all

winecfg
add the .exe file
Good luck.
