Journal rickymoz's Journal: HTML-Kit with wine

Since the school I am teaching at is still using Windows (we're going to switch to Linux really soon now), I decided to use HTML-Kit as a preferred HTML editor (for my web classes).

On their pages, I discovered an instruction about how to run HTML-Kit on Linux with Wine. The instructions are for RedHat, but since I'm running Mandrake 9.0 I think it won't be a big problem. Or maybe not? Here's what they say:

As of Build 292 Beta 4, Linux support is mostly experimental and recommended for expert users only.

  • Install RedHat Linux version 7.3+ and Wine build 20020801+. Other configurations may also work, however not covered in this document.
  • Install HTML-Kit Build 292 by running wine setup_file_name.exe
  • Change to the HTML-Kit/Bin directory and run: wine HTMLKit.exe /linux

Expert users... I am not. Let's give it a try anyways...

$ su
# urpmi wine
Prepairing ... ##################################################
1:wine ##################################################
2:libwine1 ##################################################

# mv HKSetup.exe /var/lib/wine/My\ Documents/

This was needed because for some reason wine couldn't find this file when located in my home directory

# exit
$ wine Program\ Files/Chami/HTML-Kit/Bin/HTMLKit.exe /linux

Usage: wine.bin [options] [--] program_name [arguments]
The -- has to be used if you specify arguments OR options

Oh well... Trying this way then:

$ wine Program\ Files/Chami/HTML-Kit/Bin/HTMLKit.exe

mcop warning: user defined signal handler found for SIG_PIPE, overriding
wine: Unhandled exception, starting debugger...

Never mind. Don't have the time to play around now.

$ su
# rpm -e wine libwine1
# rm -rvf /var/lib/wine/
# exit

Any suggestions welcome. Thanks.
