From the very minute I happened to hear about WINE, I started all sorts of things to make it run on my Dapper Drake which failed Miserably. But the news came with the sweetness of honey that a AMD64 version is released with Edgy onwards and the wait for my Feisty became freaky. Today from the "Cross Platform" section in Synaptic I selected Wine and I had to wait for another 10 minutes to complete the download and installation.
What is Wine?
I have read in the Ubuntu Forum that the very first command to run is "winecfg" which would bring up a window like the following:
Once you add your windows directories to it (which ofcouse is as simple as reading this now )click apply. Now the sweetest thing you could do is to type
"wine" followed by your directory path ending with the .EXE which you wish to run and hit enter. Wait for a few seconds and Voila you would see the Magic.
