View Full Version : [ubuntu] Can't install Wine

September 25th, 2011, 04:39 AM
I'm trying to download and install the Safari browser and to do that I first have to install Wine.
So, (I could use the synaptic package manager, but I don't know which wine file to 'mark for installation') I used terminal and entered this command

wget http://www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks

so far so good, then I had to enter this command
sh winetricks corefonts flash

but I got this response

wine cmd.exe /c echo '%ProgramFiles%' returned empty string

I don't know what that means... but it looks like fail.

Please tell me what to do?

I'm using instructions from http://www.junauza.com/2010/02/installing-and-running-safari-4-on.html
Are they bad instructions?:confused:

Oh. yeah, I totally skipped part 1. I thought I was installing Wine with the terminal, but no.

This is my question. Where is Wine in the Ubuntu Software Center?

I'm trying to install Safari with Wine now but I'm getting this message...
The file '/****/****/Downloads/SafariSetup.exe' is not marked as executable. If this was downloaded or copied form an untrusted source, it may be dangerous to run. For more details, read about the executable bit.

How do I give permission to open it?
