I have a .wine folder in my home directory of my main ubuntu hard disk
The problem is that I am reaching full capacity and cant install new programs with wine on the wine's C drive (which is in the .wine folder of my
/dev/sda1 hard disk)
I have a separate physical hard disk in the same computer
/dev/sdc which is almost empty and which I can find under
I thought that I simply could just run in the terminal
winecfg and then add a hard drive D: to the list and point it to
I could create the D: drive set it as a hard disk and point it to that folder.
But I can not install the new game I want :(
Its called path of exile, it has a setup exe which installs a launcher that downloads the game (and from which you play the game)
I can run the setup.exe successfully and set the installation path under D: (which leads to the folder I created in my
/dev/sdc secondary hard disk) but when it finishes and the launcher icon appears in my ubuntu desktop then I can not run the launcher (which downloads the game to the D: directory).
There is no compatibility issue at this stage with wine since if I try to install it on c: (which is inside my .wine folder) everything works fine and the launcher runs and downloads the game.
So I think I somehow must edit wine to make it see the folder in my secondary hard drive as a windows hard disk or something like that.. please help! thanks! :)
nix systems in general) is you can mount any drive, anywhere you like. Drilling down inls .wine` will give you some ideas.
.winefor likely locations (folders) to mount a spare drive to. Of course your approach will also work.
.wine/dosdevices/in my case it's a symlink to /dev/sr0
