Last step of wine installation, syntax error

Post by gmoniexxx » Wed Jul 29, 2020 5:17 am

I am following a video via youtube made in april 2020, notepad ++ and xquartz.

Very last step of copy and pasting the npp installation I'm getting this

"wine npp.7.8.5.Installer (1).exe
-bash: syntax error near unexpected token `("

ANY help welcome!!!!

Two things you could try:

Code: Select all

# Use the \
wine npp.7.8.5.Installer\ \(1\).exe
# or use the '
wine 'npp.7.8.5.Installer (1).exe'
