Ok... I don't know if there are anyone else than i who uses Linux here, but if there is, this may be useful.

===PART 1===
If you are using a distro without the "yum" command, get and RPM/DEB m.m. at http://www.winehq.org/ (try "man yum", if you get an error, you have no yum )
If you are using a distro with yum(Fedora, RedHat Enterprise, m.m.), just use
Code:
> su -l
Password: (Password to "Root" user)
> yum -y install wine
Then wait for it to install
When it is done, you can run Windows .EXE applications by running the command "wine path to .exe"

And, yes i know that f.ex. SuSe uses apt-get instead of yum, but i don't know the args for apt-get, since i am using Fedora 9 Sulphur. If anyone can post the command for apt-get i can add it here

===PART 2===
Run EliteMap
You might have noticed, that if you double-click any of the EliteMap applications, it says something similar to "Pokeroms.ini not found" or "No gba roms in current directory at all", that is beacuse Nautilus(GNOME) or Konquerror(KDE), sets the Current Directory to /home/(your username, a.k.a. your Home Folder.

These examples will assume that you have installed EliteMap in C: \Program Files\EliteMap.
So if you want to run it, you can either:


Method #1, Run from Terminal only, more stable
Spoiler:

Code:
> cd (wherever your Hack Project's folder is)
> ln -s /home/(your username)/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/EliteMap/* .
That will create Symbolic Links to every Application in the Folder for EliteMap, then you can just type
Code:
> wine ./[i](program)
TIP: Press tab to auto-complete, press twice to show all possibilities


Method #2, Run from App bar, not that stable as #1, can make a mess in your homefolder...

Spoiler:

Code:
> cd
> ln -s (wherever your rom is) .
Then add the Applications to the App Bar!

You can also create an .desktop file, but it is pretty advanced, and requires a lot of time and Photoshoping, so i won't explain it here


Method #3, Run like any command... (thanks to IIMarckus)
Spoiler:

Code:
> export PATH=$PATH:/home/(your username)/.wine/Program\ Files/EliteMap/
after that, just run for example PokePic.exe when you are in the Rom directory



Hope this helped!

You don’t need to be root to view man pages.

Why not just add them to your $PATH?

I was not sure if Root Specific Command's MAN Pages also needed root.... I remove that

Thanks! I'm using Gnome, and i couldn't find the name... I thought i could maybe be Konquerror, but i thought that was a Web Browser :\

WINE-emulated applications can be a little buggy, and some people are afraid of changing anything system-related, but i'll add that too

In what way is Ubuntu hard to use?

Download the wine debian package here: http://packages.ubuntu.com/intrepid/i386/wine/download

Once you have wine_1.0.1-0ubuntu2_i386.deb put it on a usb stick/floppies/burn it to a cd, then copy it across to your Ubuntu machine and install it as you would with an Windows installer.

Once installed try a program, e.g. Tile Layer Pro (right click and choose other application, then type in the command box: 'wine'). If your program does not work like that open the terminal then type 'cd' then the path to the folder the program resides in, finally type 'wine [ProgramName.exe]' press enter and it will print the error,nusally the problem is just a missing DLL, if so, go and search a DLL files web site where you can download most of the ones you need. Once you have the DLL put it in the same folder as your program and try again.

It works for me

Try installing this first:

http://www.mirrorservice.org/sites/a...9.1-4_i386.deb

If that doesn't work then try this package instead:

http://www.mirrorservice.org/sites/a...untu4_i386.deb

In Ubuntu 10.04 you just need to go to Applications and click on Ubuntu Software Center, and type in wine then click install.

To install Wine on an apt-get system, you need to be root or have sudo privileges:

Prompt$ sudo apt-get install wine


That's basically it.
