Hello /g/. I've been using Ganoo slash loonix for a while, however I need your help.

I have installed Fallout and it runs great with wine. However; I don't like having to sift through folders to finally find the exe file and run it through wine, so naturally I created a symlink using
ln -s /home/sam/.wine/drive_c/GOG\ Games/Fallout/falloutw.exe  fallout
and running wine over the said symlink. Of course it didn't work, I get "wine: cannot find L"C:\\windows\\system32\\fallout.exe" " as an error.

Any one have an idea about how can I fix this?

It thinks you're trying to run the program, not the symlink.

Try wine ./fallout
>>
>>44343662
Oh, thank you. We're making progress, I just get a "masterfile not found error". Apparently it found fallout but not the other files in the same folder.
>>
>>44343684
It probably expects these files to be in your working directory.

you can run it like this w/o a symlink:
cd ~/.wine/drive_c/GOG\ Games/Fallout/ && wine fallout.exe
>>
>>44343557
use an alias in .bashrc
>>
>>44343746
Thanks but the whole point is to run the game with a short command instead of having to navigate my file arborescence every single time.

>>44343757
How do I do that
>>
>>44343776
alias fallout='wine /home/sam/.wine/drive_c/GOG\ Games/Fallout/falloutw.exe'

then you can run fallout from anywhere

Make a small script
>>
>>44343789
Thank you based Anon.
>>
>>44343813
Alternatively, you can just use a script:
echo "wine /home/sam/.wine/drive_c/GOG\ Games/Fallout/falloutw.exe" > fallout.sh && chmod u+x fallout.sh

Then you can just click on it from your desktop.

>>44343789
Actually wine doesn't seem to be able to run the game with either of these scripts. Can't find the masterfile. Oh well.
>>
>>44343909
alias fallout='cd  /home/sam/.wine/drive_c/GOG\ Games/Fallout/ && wine ./falloutw.exe'
>>
>>44343909
>>44343981
oh, and you can add
&& cd -'
after exe if you want to go back to the directory you were in
