Description:

When you click an exe file, this makes a dialog pop up asking whether you want to run using mono, wine, or to cancel. Install instructions are in there.

Clicking cancel causes an error and makes it close and exit, but thats kindof the desired effect anyways.

Spaces don't work well with this either..

Wine and Mono run appropriate (if one is lucky) exe's. Problem occurs when .net and windows API are mixed. Neither program handles "marshaling".

Cedega is an old wine branch.

Doxbox, etc., are virtual machines (emulators). Probably outside the scope of this applet. There is another kde applet around for this purpose but was more problem than solution.

Fix the bugs, add a few more options (dosbox, cxoffice, cedega), and some level of robustness (not showing unavailable emulators), and it'll kick ass.

This is kindof my first script that does something in bash. I have no idea why spaces don't work, and wish someone could tell me.

Take a look at this:

It's the wine.sh modified by me and a bit more robust.

The " are the key.
Bash-scripting sucks ;)
