Vineyard, an aid to improve Wine

If I said I used Windows for anything ... I'd be lying terribly. Unfortunately it is not a perfect world, because if it were you could use Linux without worrying about the famous compatibility with that program. Or I could play Age of Empires in Ubuntu natively. But since it is so, we have Wine.

But we have a "detail." Its interface is perhaps too "technical." If you're new, it is clear so you can navigate unknown option. But do not despair, there is a more friendly, named vineyard.

To install, open a terminal and add the repository to the list
  • sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
and paste:
  • deb lucid main
  • deb-src lucid main
Then update and install with:
  • sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install vineyard
To install on Maverick, open a terminal and add the repository:
  • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cybolic/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install vineyard
You can access it from System/Preferences/Wine Applications:

With this interface you can uninstall programs, select the preferred audio codec, to emulate the operating system you want ... There are many options, so you just need to start.
