Forgot to say. You can also use winepath to convert between different paths.
So you can easy convert from Windows path to Unix path. You can to use this
command to provide Unix path for Linux applications from within Windows
application. Just instead of application use simple script. For example
create with your favorite text editor file /usr/bin/linuxapplication.win with
for i in $@
paths="$paths `winepath --unix $i`";
Call linuxapplication.win instead of linuxapplication from Windows
application under Wine. It should work for most cases. Of course you should
replace "linuxapplication" with actual name of your linux application.
