Of course you can use just plain ol' X. In some cases Xinit won't work
(no permissions to launch X server as regular user). Either Xephyr or
VNC will need to be used in these cases.
cd "~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/My game/"
xinit /usr/bin/wine "my game.exe" -- :1 -ac -depth 8
I liked the plain ol part of this so I gave it a shot. Did not load
xinit since it did not say that I would have to do that.
Got a user is not authorized to run the x server error.
Can you tell that I am a real beginner? What part did I screw up? Does
this have to be run sudo? From all the messages I get on this list,
sudo seems like something I could use to really hurt myself so I do not
run it unless I am completely sure that it will help. Or is this the
some cases in which xinit won't work?
