    Smile USB Kubuntu 11.10 - Wine - Browse C Drive -> error

    Hi ,

    I created a usb Kubuntu 11.10 and I am not able to browse C Drive.

    Error window -> file:///home/ubuntu/Documents/.wine/dosdevices/c: does not exist.

    But in fact the folder c: exist. I can see inside the folder:
    /Program Files
    /users
    /windows




    Is this related to Permissions?

    ~/drive_c is the folder name, not to mention : is an erogenous tag and cannot be used in file and folder names lol

    so file:///home/ubuntu/Documents/.wine/dosdevices/drive_c

    I know this is an older thread, but I had this problem today and when you google the problem, this is the first result that comes up, so I hope it's okay to resurrect this thread to post the fix.

    Edit this file with your favorite editor as root:

    /usr/share/applications/wine-browsedrive.desktop
    Go to the bottom of the file and find where it says:

    Exec=xdg-open blah blah...
    And change it to:

    Exec=xdg-open $HOME/.wine/drive_c
    That will give the menu entry the correct path to your Wine C drive.
