Trying to automate Wine Staging

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I'm on macOS Sierra, and I've installed Wine staging to run some programs. It works great but in order to launch the program, I have to open Wine Staging (which opens as a terminal) then I have to navigate to the directory that contains the .exe or the program and then run wine program.exe. Is there any way to automate this process or install some kind of GUI for Wine Staging?

I just read the title and immediately thought about actual wine.

Sorry I'm fairly new to bash, can you explain what you mean more? What's an argument?

On OS X, installing software works slightly differently than on an average Linux distribution.

 

Fitst: From where did you install Wine? From macports, or some site? Did you do D'n'D to the programs in OS X, or use an installation wizard ("OS X installation program") ?

 

Wine may be installed in a way that the executable is not available to the shell (D'n'D to Programs or OS X installation wizard etc.) or so that it is available to the shell (via macports or similar). If the case is the former, I believe you can not start programs by "wine xxxxxx.exe", as you do on Linux.

 

Also, making shortcuts is not as straightforward in OS X than in Linux distributions (or at least it did not use to be). I'm not sure any Wine installation on OS X makes any kind of Windows and OS X desktop integration (as in: making shortcuts automatically to installed Windows programs in your OS X desktop); on Linux, Wine does attempt to do this, and even sometimes somewhat succeeds.

 

OS X's desktop interface is not meant for tinkering; for example, the philosophy is that each application is a self-contained package, which is in conflict with software like Wine (which is an interface/collection of libraries for running Windows applications on some other OS).

An argument is some parameter you type after any command in any command line.

Now that I've red manikyath's answer again, he (/she?) probably meant to integrate it into the desktop, you need to make a file association. This can be made trough the OS X GUI, if wine is listed in the programs. I'd give you a step-by-step guide, but I don't have time to boot into OS X right now. Try to look in the context menu in Finder, properties of any .exe and find the association menu from there (that's where it used to be, IIRC).

 

Associate .exe with "wine" and finder should run them with wine after that.
