> Hello there,

You should not need to chmod any of the directories in .wine unless YOU
ARE RUNNING AS ROOT. This is HIGHLY not suggested as problems can and
As to the absence of the /Prefs directory, this may be because you
installed the program as root. Vitamin gave one suggestion that may or
may not work,
Here is my suggestion:
rm -rf ~/wine (it is corrupt and will have to be removed as root if the
log out of root and log in as a regular user
cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/
look for the directory for your program. It should not be present
wine setup.exe (or what ever program it uses to install) to install the
Run the program and the Prefs directory should be created this time.
One rule that I keep is to never run Wine as ROOT. It has a tendency to
mess things up.
