View Full Version : [ubuntu] Unable to install Winetricks

Hello Everyone,

I have followed carefully the instructions to install Winetricks, but I get some errors, see below:

mv: cannot stat `/home/administrator/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/rpcrt4.dll': No such file or directory

I need to be able to Run Office 2007 (preferably) on my Ubuntu 8.10 because my company has Excel macros that won't work with OpenOffice.

Any help would be appreciated

From what I understand, winetricks just install things for you, it doesn't need to be installed itself either.

Just navigate to the folder it's in and type sh winetricks, it will show you a list of things you can install.
