Re: [K12OSN] Wine Problem



I am already over budget on this lab, so any more spending is out of the
question. I did get it fixed though. Here's what I did: Installed office
as a normal user, moved drive_c from user to /wine and chmodded it 0755,
chmodded /wine/drive_c/windows/profile and temp to 0777, moved c:\ in
winecfg from ~/.wine/drive_c to /wine/drive_c, copied ~/.wine/ to
/etc/skel, created my shortcuts and it worked great (well... at least as
great as an M$ product can run).

weren't too different than what I had tried before). Here's what
happens. After I copied everything over to /wine and changed perms to
0755 I still couldn't get it to run (still tells me it isn't installed).
I did kind of make it work by copying the *.reg files from /wine to
~/.wine but it kept giving me an error every time I started it. Did it
just simply work for you or was there something else? I did already make
the menu items by right clicking on the menu bar and clicking edit menu.
Then I moved the .desktop files from my home directory to
/usr/share/applications and copied the .config and .gconf folders to
/etc/skel. They are pretty icons... but that doesn't mean much if they
don't do anything :-D
