winetricks - manage virtual windows environments using wine SYNOPSIS
winetricks [options] [verb ... ] DESCRIPTION
winetricks is an easy way to work around common problems in Wine. It provides simple commands to tweak Wine settings, download and install missing Windows DLLs and fonts, or install various games or apps with appropriate workarounds for the current version of wine. It can be used via gui or commandline. The commandline mode is intended both for interactive use and as a building block in fancier wine frontends and in automated regression testing. winetricks with no arguments displays a GUI using either Zenity or Kdialog. OPTIONS
--force Don't check whether packages were already installed --gui Show gui diagnostics even when driven by commandline -k, --keep_isos Cache isos (allows later installation without disc) --no-clean Don't delete temp directories (useful during debugging) --no-isolate Don't install each app or game in its own bottle -q, --unattended Don't ask any questions, just install automatically -r, --ddrescue Retry hard when caching scratched discs --showbroken Even show verbs that are currently broken in wine -v, --verbose Echo all commands as they are executed -h, --help Display this message and exit -V, --version Display version and exit Commands: list list categories apps list list verbs in category 'applications' benchmarks list list verbs in category 'benchmarks' dlls list list verbs in category 'dlls' games list list verbs in category 'games' settings list list verbs in category 'settings' list-cached list cached-and-ready-to-install verbs list-download list verbs which download automatically list-manual-download list verbs which download with some help from the user list-installed list already-installed verbs prefix=foobar select WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.local/share/wineprefixes/foobar EXAMPLES

Wine checks several environment variables on startup: WINEPREFIX If set, this specifies the location of the default .wine directory ( usually $HOME/.wine ). WINE If set, this specifies which wine binary to use by default XDG_CACHE_HOME If set, this is path to system's user data cache (default: $HOME/.cache) W_CACHE path to Winetricks' user data cache (default: $XDG_CACHE_HOME/winetricks} AUTHORS

wineserver - the Wine server SYNOPSIS
wineserver [options] DESCRIPTION
wineserver is a daemon process that provides to Wine roughly the same services that the Windows kernel provides on Windows. wineserver is normally launched automatically when starting wine(1), so you shouldn't have to worry about it. In some cases however, it can be useful to start wineserver explicitly with different options, as explained below. OPTIONS
-d[n], --debug[=n] Set the debug level to n. 0 means no debugging information, 1 is the normal level, and 2 is for extra verbose debugging. If n is not specified, the default is 1. The debug output will be sent to stderr. wine(1) will automatically set the debug level when start- ing wineserver if the +server option is set in the WINEDEBUG variable. -f, --foreground Make the server remain in the foreground for easier debugging, for instance when running it under a debugger. -h, --help Display a help message. -k[n], --kill[=n] Kill the currently running wineserver, optionally by sending signal n. If no signal is specified, sends a SIGINT first and then a SIGKILL. The instance of wineserver that is killed is selected based on the WINEPREFIX environment variable. -p[n], --persistent[=n] Specify the wineserver persistence delay, i.e. the amount of time that the server will keep running when all client processes have terminated. This avoids the cost of shutting down and starting again when programs are launched in quick succession. The timeout n is in seconds, the default value is 3 seconds. If n is not specified, the server stays around forever. -v, --version Display version information and exit. -w, --wait Wait until the currently running wineserver terminates. ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
WINEPREFIX If set, the content of this variable is taken as the name of the directory where wineserver stores its data (the default is $HOME/.wine). All wine processes using the same wineserver (i.e.: same user) share certain things like registry, shared memory and kernel objects. By setting WINEPREFIX to different values for different Wine processes, it is possible to run a number of truly independent Wine sessions. WINESERVER Specifies the path and name of the wineserver binary that will be launched automatically by wine. If not set, wine will try to load /usr/bin/wineserver, and if this doesn't exist it will then look for a file named wineserver in the path and in a few other likely locations. FILES
~/.wine Directory containing user specific data managed by wine. /tmp/.wine-uid The directory containing the server Unix socket and the lock file. These files are created in a subdirectory generated from the WINEPREFIX directory device and inode numbers. AUTHORS
The original author of wineserver is Alexandre Julliard. Many other people have contributed new features and bug fixes. Please check the file Changelog in the Wine distribution for the complete details. BUGS
