    you souldn't run wine with sudo. Does your .exe file have execution priviliges (right click, properties, permissions)?

  • If you want a simpler way of using wine, I suggest you install "Play on Linux" which gives a graphical way of installing things.

Shouldn't that be sudo chown -R agha:agha ~/.wine -R? Also, never run a wine program with sudo. If that doesn't work, delete the existing prefix and create a new one with sudo rm ~/.wine -R; winecfg.

  • but how should i install that program as both the terminal command show the same error saying wine is not owned by you May 26 '14 at 8:45
  • is there any other way to handle that May 26 '14 at 8:47

    I don't know what you might be doing wrong with wine, but you might as well delete the existing wine prefix and create a new one. sudo rm ~/.wine -R; winecfg You just install a program like one would normally do -> open the exe of the installer with wine without running sudo.
