Projects / winetricks


Winetricks is a multi-purpose tool for Wine that helps when Windows applications forget to bundle needed runtime libraries, fonts, tools, or plugins. It knows the safest place to legally get the missing files (often at, and will painlessly install them for you. It also can tweak Wine settings, and can automatically install about 100 applications and games, including any needed workarounds. It is a simple shell script, and does not require installation. If invoked with no arguments, it displays a simple GUI to let you pick exactly what you would like to install.
