Summary: wine config [wine] "Path" not working ?
AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
ReportedBy: mike_parlett at btopenworld.com
System Linux Redhat 9 ( fully up to date kernel gcc/libs etc )
wine from CVS version -- Wine 20040716
New config file from distribution
No old software lurking this is a new clean Linux instalation
Wine installed with no Windows partition ie stand alone
THE PROBLEM ---->
I have used older versions of wine for some time with few problems. I am now
trying to use the latest from CVS ( aug 2004 ). It compiles and installs. Indeed
notepad etc run no problem.
I used wineinstall as a normal user and su'd for the installation.
I have confirmed that wine is using my ~/.wine/config file by corrupting it and
seeing errors ( as expected ). The problem starts when I try to add Path's to
the "Path" entry in Section [wine]. Here is a snip from the file --->
"Windows" = "c:\\windows"
"System" = "c:\\windows\\system"
"Temp" = "e:\\"
"Profile" = "c:\\windows\\Profiles\\Administrator"
"GraphicsDriver" = "x11drv"
"ShowDirSymlinks" = "1"
;"ShowDotFiles" = "1"
All directories are define in dosdevices with soft links as recomended and all
I am attempting to Lotus organizer the command line is
$ wine org5.exe
The result is
wine: cannot find 'org5.exe'
If i use the full path list ie:
Then it starts... however I need to add some other Paths for the program to
work. If I add them to the config file they are ignored.
This is not peculiar to organizer any program on its own path will fail.
I have tried exporting WINEPATH no help
Of course I have left the linux enviroment Path alone
I have googled, searched wine HQ read all the README I can find including the
sgml stuff and find no real refferance to this. So either its a new bug or I am
thick. I dont mind being called thick etc if someone knows the answer
Thanks in Advance
