Installing Wine

Cedega is not free software, so we will not cover how to install it. Instead, we will install Wine:

Instructor Notes:

Before performing the following steps, ensure that all the students have a Microsoft Windows game copied on their computer.

To install and configure Wine:

1. Install the wine and wine-dev packages from Synaptic Package Manager.

2. The configuration of wine can be altered through Applications, Wine, Configure Wine.

3. This window allows you to customise a variety of settings for Wine, such as the Microsoft Windows version that is being simulated, drive mappings, as well as application-specific settings. Click OK to close the window.

Install the wine and wine-dev packages from Synaptic Package Manager.

Wine is now configured on your computer with an artificial C: drive. You can now access any Microsoft Windows application on Ubuntu by using Wine.

Instructor Notes:

The information included in this document is sufficient for the students to start playing games. The most suitable and easy method is chosen for illustration. However, performing other tasks, such as adding CD and DVD drives to Wine or using Microsoft Windows themes in Wine requires further configuration. If the students want to learn more about configuring Wine, refer them to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/-Wine
