I'm the best with operating the terminal on mac, but I have been using wine staging and stable historically to run .exe files. My recent downloads of the latest stable and staging updates have resulted in me not be able to open .exe files with either of them. When using staging I get message on my terminal saying ".wine is not owned by you" i have tried to look up a resolution, but I have been unsuccessful in finding/implementing one.

Are you the owner of the .wine directory?
You could find out with:
Code:
whoami
ls -l $HOME/.wine

If the user name is different read the WineHQ Wiki how to restore the permissions.
If the user name is the same, please report back.

J2Suav
0978865313:~ J2Suav$ ls -l $HOME/.wine
ls: /Users/J2Suav/.wine: No such file or directory


I get this in return. Thank you for your reply

That is weird. That is the default wineprefix location.

Do you use a shortcut or launcher to start Wine that sets the WINEPREFIX variable?

I am sorry I am not sure what you are asking really, but I either directly open my wine staging app in my application folder. I open my terminal from my dashboard at the bottom of my screen. I run wine stable by using "open with" on an .exe file. Again I apologize if didnt answer your question.

Is there a "drive_c" directory, and what are the permissions?
Code:
ls -dasl $(find / -type d -name drive_c 2>/dev/null)
