    MIME TYPES associate, wine

    ???
    Hi,
    I'm trying to figure out how to open .exe files (mimetype application/x-executable) and what program to use to open them.

    Also any hints on how to use wine. I have it installed...I think with fake windows.

    :'(Doesn't anyone want to help me with WINE?
    It's just until I get the hang of Linux...then I'm booting out Windows!

    sorry bout that
    what wine do you have? the one from winehq.com or the codeweavers release?
    basicly its as easy as going wine <win exe file>
    you should be able to edit the mimetype to run something like wine "$@"

    I don't think we have too many people on the board who actually use wine. I don't.

    I believe I have the one from winehq. By the way I still need help with opening some files. I t keeps asking me what to use to open it with...especially the ones that look like gears (icon)
    I wish i knew more about this stuff. I recently configureed Mandrake to see my NTFS (XP) partition so i might not need wine but just in case...at least until I get the hang of Linux. That's (XP) where I have all my files and MP3's.
    Thanks for being patient!
