Trouble running file in Japanese Locale.

Post by Dorpsbewoner » Mon Aug 12, 2019 1:51 pm

Hey, quick question, what do I do if I get a message telling me that wine cannot find my file after typing in:

myname$ LC_MESSAGES=ja_JP.UTF-8 wine game.exe

Only to receive:

wine: cannot find L"C:\\windows\\system32\\game.exe"

Help would be very much appreciated, I'm a newbie to this so sorry if this is a dumb question.

You need a full path to the executable either with / as root, which can be achieved by dragging and dropping the executable from Finder to your console window instead of typing the game name into the finder window, or with the virtual c-drive as root similar to the path in the error message ("C:\\<install directory>\\game.exe").

It's better to use "cd" to change the current directory, and then run "LC_ALL=ja_JP.UTF-8 wine game.exe".
