I have installed Microsoft Office 2007 on my Macbook Air. I did this using Wine via commandline parameters. I've noticed that Wine has it's own command-prompt and so doing wine-commands can't be done through Mac's very own terminal alone. So in order to launch a Wine Application-software that's been installed you have to do so by using Wine's own initiated-terminal and run commandline-parameters from there, like so (let's open up msword):
Open Wine Stable ->
WINEPREFIX=~/win32 wine /path/to/msword.exe
I'm wondering how I can I have an icon-shortcut to run commands on a Mac? For Windows, it's recognized as shortcut.ink and within that icon's properties holds the action. For Mac, it's very different and i'm beginning to think it's impossible.
Once I have all the shortcuts i'm able to run my WINE applications within a folder without having me launch each individual software by commandline which is a hassle.
- Unable to create shortcuts in Mac to run commands
- otherwise, create an automator file by recording your actions to open up terminal and launching wine software that way (don't forget to speed up the process).
- Automator and spotlight don't work very well a remedy would be to record and click open spotlight searchbar and type a dummyword and select all to replace it then type the software or file in which you're looking for to prevent hiccups in the recording process
- Mac being different really means mac being extremely limited.
- I'm on Wine Stable, but opening up Wine terminal can just be done by searching
wineand then look for icon-wineglass
