I am not familiar with wine, so I don't know what this is supposed to do: echo 'wine "$0".exe "$@"' > comskip

It fails, the result is:

[1] 5601
wine "$0".exe "$@"
gt: error: neither tool nor script specified; option -help lists possible tools
[1]+ Done echo 'wine "$0".exe "$@"'
comskip: command not found

Can anyone help?

... I don't know what this is supposed to do: echo 'wine "$0".exe "$@"' > comskip
It fails...

There is a transcription bug in the instructions, the "& g t ;" before the word "comskip" is supopsed to be ">" (greater-than sign), which redirects the echo output to the file "comskip". This creates a shell script which will launch wine on the Windows executable (in detail: The shell replaces $0 with the path to the script, which is named "comskip", and so "$0".exe expands into comskip.exe which is then executed by the wine program).

As of January 2016 these instructions (at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/TransferVideosFromTIVOToUbuntuOrAndroidUsingKmttg) are obsolete. The general information is still vald, but the details no longer work (kmttg now requires Oracle Java 1.8.0_40, projects have moved from google to sourceforge, and newer software versions are available).

A working comprehensive kmttg installer script for Ubuntu 15.10 is available at http://abhweb.org/downloads/kmttg_aio_installer.sh
