Winetricks help

I'm having a problem using winetricks... I've made a clean install of Daryna KDE and have the latest wine installed from the winehq repos...

I have winetricks installed and can start it, but when I try to install anything I get the following:

Code: Select all

niksavel@darth:~$ ./winetricks
Executing wget -nd -c --read-timeout=300 --retry-connrefused --header Accept-Encoding: gzip,deflate
           => `arial32.exe'
Connecting to||:80... connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 200 OK
Length: 554,208 (541K) [application/octet-stream]
arial32.exe: Permission denied

Cannot write to `arial32.exe' (Permission denied).
Note: command 'wget -nd -c --read-timeout=300 --retry-connrefused --header Accept-Encoding: gzip,deflate' returned status 1.  Aborting.
If I try to run

Code: Select all

wget -nd -c --read-timeout=300 --retry-connrefused --header Accept-Encoding: gzip,deflate
manually than it works normally... it's some kind of a permissions issue. I was under the impression that I was supposed to run winetricks as a user, not with sudo... in fact if I try to run it with sudo than the download works but it fails at install saying that I'm not the owner of the directory... the owner is me (niksavel) and not root... so I should have permissions...

I've tried deleting the entire .wine and reinstalling everything to make sure I didn't mess up any directories but it's always the same... for some reason I couldn't find anyone else having this issue....

help pls...

Why on earth should it do that?
