"~" tilde is a standard shell expansion for a home directory. If you haven't move your WINEPREFIX (default ~/.wine) then you can copy and paste those commands as-is, replacing the "new_box" of course.

What that means, when you use "~" anywhere in the path, shell automatically replaces (expands) it with the full path of your home directory. Unless of course the path is quoted. Then you should use $HOME instead. Ex:

$echo ~
$echo "~"
$echo "$HOME"
$echo '$HOME'
