I have tried a few combinations of the wine and schedtool programs, but either
H3 wouldn't start or crash as always. I have the .desktop shortcut on my
desktop. In the "command" field of the propertied window is this:
env WINEPREFIX="/home//.wine/" wine C:\\Program\ Files\\Ubisoft\\Heroes\ of\
Might\ and\ Magic\ III\ -\ Zlota\ Edycja\\Heroes3.exe"
Where should I put this schedtool command to run it properly from the icon?
Win98 is set in the winecfg. However, my CentOS 6 uses PulseAudio by default
and has only wine 1.2.3 available.
