    It is working for me even though it does not like this command


    Code:

    winetricks riched20 riched30

    scott@scott-desktop:~$ winetricks riched20 riched30
    bash: winetricks: command not found

    I actually followed the instructions exactly,
    Code:
    wget http://www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks
    sh ./winetricks riched20 riched30
    worked perfectly.

    However I get
    Code:
    $ winetricks riched20 riched30
    bash: Permission denied
    $ sudo winetricks riched20 riched30
    sudo: winetricks: command not found
    and while running
    Code:
    wine "$HOME/.wine/drive_c/windows/profiles/$USER/Local Settings/Application Data/Google/Chrome/Application/chrome.exe" --new-http --in-process-plugins
    successfully opens chrome, it fails to render pages and closes immediately when I try to drag it.

    I may just wait until it comes out for linux regardless as firefox is pretty damn good.

    Apparently it was a mistake and they have removed it from the new EULA.

    I loaded Chrome in an XP vm, and it's pretty nice, but what concerns me about it is the lack of information from Google. We didn't know about it until it was upon us. When are Linux and Mac ports due? Google isn't saying. Even Apple is more forthcoming about future releases than this. Given that this is an open source project, a little more transparency would be nice.

    Re: Any luck running Google Chrome on Wine?

    Has anyone gotten a launcher to work for this yet? Using

    env WINEPREFIX="/home/user/.wine" wine "C:\windows\profiles\user\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --new-http --in-process-plugins

    Does NOT work correctly from the launcher, but DOES work from a terminal window.

    Any ideas?

    I do not get the permission denied error and message, but I do get command not found duo, although it says the following with bash instead of sudo as the shell. I have to assume you have to be running as your home directory user, not sudo to get the correct permissions, as that is the only difference but that makes no sense.

    Code:
    winetricks riched20 riched30
    bash: winetricks: command not found

    I was able to open up a forum I visit regularly and it worked, so are your home directory permissions setup in a non-default way that would cut off Wine or anything else in all this?

    You need to make sure you use this command or it won't work.
    Code:
    sh ./winetricks riched20 riched30
    Just copy and paste the command and it will work.
