    wine

    In linux when I use wine from the terminal it cuts of from a space. E.g.

    when I put this
    wine /mnt/windows/Program Files/ program to run
    it ends at "Program".
    How can I run a program in program files? what do I do about the spaces?

    Thanx in advance!

    The easy thing to do would be to use "Tab" as this autofills for you

    other wise, "\ " will be a space. For example, "/Program\ Files/ "

    Well if you only have one of those do this.

    wine /mnt/windows/Program*

    That should work, unless you have something else named Program_______

    are you sure it's not something like:
    "/mnt/hda1/windows/program\ files"

    I got it to work. Instead of puting

    wine /path/path

    I am sopposed to put

    wine.run /path/path...

    Thanx for all your inputs.

    Edit: I don't like typing in paths continuasly and using dir after I type a path then I type a longer path... Is there a way so I don't have to type alot. The tab key is very usefull but with long paths my fingers get tired of pushing continuasly. I heard of using cd but I don't know how to. What is a good way of navigating around files in the terminal without typing things over and over?

    thanx in advance!

    it's like this:
    Code:
    # cd mnt/hda1
    /mnt/hda1# ls -l
    
    program\ files
    documents\ and\ settings
    etc.
