i tried to download q4wine and everything went well but when i tried to open the software it gave me this:

Cannot find or execute the 'wine' binary. Make sure that this binary is available by search PATH variable and see also INSTALL file for application depends


Use sudo apt-get install wine.

WINE is a Windows API implementation on Linux which q4wine depends on.

Look into Wikipedia article for more information.

If you need to set up your $PATH, you can set it inside /etc/environment. It should look like:

You can install q4wine using:

sudo apt-get install q4wine

This may need wine, and would be installed as a dependency if not previously installed. The wine binary should be in /usr/bin, if it is not in your $PATH variable, refer to this answer to add /usr/bin to your $PATH variable.

  • wheres is my /usr/bin? @jobin – user257719 Mar 13 '14 at 21:44
