I think I got Wine installed on my Hackintosh, which, as of now, is fully updated. However, is there anyway to check?


Also, how can I install .exe files? Because, I looked at the Leopard files from windows, and saw a ./wine file, which had the "C" drive in it, however, that doesn't show up when I'm on Leopard. Can someone give me some help with using Wine in Leopard? I've used wine a lot in Ubuntu, but that gave me an option to "Run using wine" when you right clicked it.






$ wine --version


Gives me the version, and I have the most updated version. Sooooo..... now what? How do I get a program to work?


Alright, so I got the idea on how to get programs to work. wine "/program/location"

However, I have run into some bugging problems...


ethan-micks-mac-pro:~ ethanmski$ wine /Users/ethanmski/Downloads/GwSetup.exe

Wine cannot find the FreeType font library. To enable Wine to

use TrueType fonts please install a version of FreeType greater than

or equal to 2.0.5.



Working on getting that to work. Hmmm, Wine still can't find Freetype fonts... any help?


Okay, I have installed "something" in Wine. However, I can get it to run, I don't know the path name. Something along the lines of "c:\\Programfiles\\Program\\Program.exe"

is there a way I can browse my "c" drive?

I installed Wine from another source, and now it is working much cleaner, but I still can't get a program that I have installed to run. Ideas?


Make sure you have the latest wine source code (which can be found here http://sourceforge.net/project/downloading.php?groupname=wine&filename=wine-0.9.58.tar.bz2&use_mirror=kent ) ,the latest FreeType source (which can be found here http://sourceforge.net/project/downloading.php?group_id=3157&use_mirror=kent&filename=freetype-2.3.5.tar.bz2&80753352 ) ,XCode tools (which can be found on your OS X Install DVD under Optional installs) & XQuartz which a better version of apples X11 (which can be found here http://trac.macosforge.org/projects/xquartz/wiki/X112.1.4 )


in the terminal cd to your wine source directory, do $ ./configure then $ make then $ make depend then $ sudo make install


now cd to your freetype source directory, do $ ./configure then $ make then $ sudo make install


And this should work but unfortunately there is no way of clicking a .exe and it will launch wine, you have to go to the terminal type wine "then a space" then drag your .exe file into the terminal & press return.


it works very well its just a bit annoying having to open the terminal.


Hope this has helped :hammer:
