Ubuntu – Winecfg: error reading registry key for installroot

wine

I am new to Ubuntu.

I am trying to install wine so that I can install World of WarCraft on Ubuntu. I installed wine through the Ubuntu software center and saw that you had to type

winecfg

into the terminal in order for it to configure.

I get this response:

andrew@andrew-System-Product-Name:~$ winecfg
wine: created the configuration directory '/home/andrew/.wine'

I have no idea what any of this means… Except err. I'm assuming that means error. No idea where to go from here. Any help would be appreciated.

  • That's normal output the first time you run winecfg: see this thread.
