I would assume this is the same as on linux.

1. Download the script
2. put the file somewhere in your path (possibly your home folder)
3. mark the script executable

Done

Download script to your Downloads directory.
As a system administrator user and using the sudo command, copy the
winetricks.sh file to /usr/bin
As a system administrator user and using the sudo command set the
executible bit on the winetricks.sh file.

Pardon me, if you will, but I've been having the same problem and I did not understand what you meant by the "home" folder. Is the /home path what you were talking about, or the Wine Binaries? As you can probably tell by now, I'm no Unix expert (yet), and I would like to know how to fix it.

Thanks for and if any help!

usr/bin is not the correct directory for MAC OS X, at least not for mountain lion, I have been struggling with this for awhile, tried installing wine tricks in a number of directories to no avail, I even emailed Mike Kronenberg for help, but he hasn't gotten back to me:

I've been using wine 1.7.0 which as you probably know doesn't come with wine tricks, unfortunately, I need it to install some drivers necessary to get a program to run (or hopefully will get said program [skyrim creation kit] to run). I was told to use the following code to get it

rm -f winetricks
wget http://winetricks.org/winetricks
sudo cp winetricks /usr/bin
sudo chmod +x winetricks


Now all the lines of this seem to be working fine, except the /usr/bin directory doesn't exist on Mac OS X Mountain Lion. Even when I create it, put in the newly created winetricks.exe and attempt to use wine tricks it returns "wine server not found!". So I assume this isn't the directory that MAC OS X wine uses to install wine tricks.

I've tried older versions of wine that come with wine tricks, unfortunately they are running into separate issues, (can't get them to recognize XQuartz) and I already have 1.7.0 properly installed along with wget and sudo (installed using ./configure). So I would really like to continue using 1.7.0 as once I get it to run a program it seems to run flawlessly, however I need Direct X 10 (not 9 which it comes with) and dot net_40 as opposed to dot net_35.

I'm getting a "SIMD Streaming Extensions not supported" error for
the program I'm trying to run and assume these two things would fix it?

LONG STORY SHORT: (I'm putting this in caps so you can skip to it if you want, and ignore the rest of this message, not to be rude or obnoxious) I NEED TO KNOW WHERE TO INSTALL WINETRICKS FOR WINE 1.7.0, I.E. WHAT DIRECTORY TO CP IT TO ON MAC OS X MOUNTAIN LION.

Thank you so much for your time!
