you can install msi with 'wine msiexec /i program.msi'. Check first in WineHQ for compatibility of your app

Hi.

To run the .msi program use the msiexec tool with the /i option in a terminal window. Using steaminstall.msi, it would look like this:


msiexec /i steaminstall.msi

See this wiki for more info:

Hope this helps.

and btw, how do i check compatability in winehq? i don't think i would need to b/c i saw a screen shot of the game that i wanted. so i'm sure it has to work.

Are you trying to install steam as outlined here - scroll down - worked fine here

how exactly do i do this:
and clicking on Install button. If the Gecko engine doesn't download (servers are down) then download wine_gecko.cab to the "/tmp" directory and point Wine to it (save this as-is to the "/tmp/file.reg" then import with command 'regedit /tmp/file.reg':

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\MSHTML]
"GeckoUrl"="z:\\tmp\\wine_gecko.cab"

i put the file wine_gecko.cab in the /tmp folder. and how do i point wine to it and save this as-is? i just don't get the wording. or maybe the concept, but i'm trying to learn.

@fignig
I just installed steam to hardy a few min. ago (have it on a gutsy)
If your having problems post back while it's still fresh in my head.

edit: basically just run
wine iexplore http://winehq.org if you get a pop up with install button click it, you'll know it's installed when you have a wine internet explorer window showing winehq page. (if you just get the winehq page then it's already installed) Then dl the installer file and if it's on desktop run

cd Desktop; wine start SteamInstall.msi
