      open the X11 terminal (should be in mac HD -> Applications -> Utilities -> X11) and type "winemine" or "notepad" and press return.  Native Windows apps don't work yet, but work is being done to port some Opensource windows stuff... (slowly)

        I have installed the new package and I want to play winemine, please help.

        Thanks,
        Alexander the Great

        The package I installed was from: http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=69890&package_id=68971&release_id=213245

          In my home directory I found a folder called .wine, but there's no program to run inside.  Oh well, tell me sometime soon how to run winmine.

          Thanks,

      Seems straightforward enough, but it's just not working for me.

      Running Panther 10.3.2, X11 1.0 (XFree86 4.3.0) and Darwine 1.0.6 DP.

      Both winemine and notepad come up as "command not found".  I'm in my home directory by default.  Should I be in a different directory?

      --h

        Ooh, dang... replied to the wrong message. :(

        Anyway, FWIW, I installed it from the .DMG file here, rather than compiling the source.

      If you cd /usr/local/bin, that should put you in a folder with a bunch of wine stuff.  From there, type ./winemine or ./notepad or whatever.  Worked for me.

      I also can't run winemine or notepad. Here's my Terminal output.

      I had X11 open why I did that. Maybe I should close it?
      I quit X11 and try again and NOGO.

      It seems that it won't open in my X11.app.

      Sorry about the long message above.

      There is a really easy way to open winemine and notepad in X11. I have X11 in my dock so all I did was in the Finder go to /usr/local/bin/ and dragged the winemine icon to the X11 icon in the dock. It worked perfectly.

      Notepad worked too.

      Dragging it to the dock is the only way I have ever gotten wine to work.  Thanks for the tip!
