All about K-Meleon under Linux using wine.
[quote=JujuLand] Fred really likes console command. For ubuntu 8.10, but it ought to be ok with all the version (when wine hasn't yet been installed) : 1) Applications > Add/Remove > enter wine > install 2) goto wineHQ website, and search for keys and deb line to add to 'Software Sources' 3)copy and download it (if needed, I don't remember for the key) 4) Launch Software Sources, and add it to sources and keys 5) close Software sources wine will than be in upgrade list To update immediately, just open Synaptics and click Ctrl-R to actualize the list. wine ought to be in the list. To install then K-Meleon, and other software, you can use two ways: 1) Install by default, but there is some problems (for me) to this. When upgrading wine, by default, it uses by default .wine folder. It's normal, but it sometimes arrive that the actual own config crash after upgrading. So, you'll then need to rename .wine, and launch again wine to create a new config. And obviously all the parameters and programs have to be installed again, and wine parameters have sometimes to be set again. All this is obviously a real pain ... 2) create a folder under /opt (in sudo mode) : Program Files Change the rights of this folder from root to jamesd if it's thez name of your group Propriétaire: jamesd > create... Group : users > create .... Others : List only Execute : chech it Appli change for all the include files 3) install K-Meleon If you keep the user folder for profile, it will be located under ~/.wine/drive_c/users/jamesd/Applications Data/K-Meleon/Profiles ..... The advantages of this way are: - you haven't to install again if you must rename .wine - it's easy to change the path given by setups : just replace C by E - it install for all the users The things to do not to have problems: - If you have more than one user who use the program installed under /opt/program files, to avoid problems, just update the rights of program files (appli change will update of the rights of all the files) after an install - To update which is out of date with your installed programs (when renaming .wine) you'll must to launch SetDefault for K-Meleon, and sometimes to reinstall programs. That's why, when I install a program, I search for installed keys for that program, and I export and keep it in regfiles I will merge (it's a text file). It's easiest to import a key than to install again a program. It's also a way I have used to easily install a windows program under wine (using the windows registry). But, obviously, it's generally not necessary to rename .wine, just one time or two, I had this problem. Last thing, I have a command line to trace crash, and in this case, it must be launched from within a console: alain:~$ WINEDEBUG=fixme-all,err-toolbar wine /opt/Program\ Files/K-Meleon153/k-meleon.exe &> /home/alain/Bureau/Crash\ K-Meleon.txt You will have to just modify it to your own config. You can notice how you can have a space in the name without using "", just replace <space> by \<space> Hoping it can helps A+[/quote]
