> Wine has been working great on my Mac, but when I tried to start Black & White after installing, I can't get it open because the filename is literally "Black & White". Does anyone know what to do about the ampersand in Terminal? Or is there another way to start installed programs in Wine that I'm missing other than through Terminal? Thanks!
you can usually rename the exe file to not have the & ... or you have to type it in with a \ in front, so it knows you really mean an &...
wine Black\ \&\ White.exe
same as you use \ so it knows about a space.
me, I'd just rename it to "Black and White.exe"
