Things to be installed.
gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
- First, add repository for Wine:
# Repository for wine
- Add the following lines at the end of this file
deb http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt edgy main
deb-src http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt edgy main
sudo apt-get update
- Save the edited file
sudo apt-get install wine
2. Next, we install the desktop.
sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop
since its really not a good idea to have a root user session continuously open, i HIGHLY suggest making a new user and using their desktop to use. This way, if it happens that you do managed to have someone get into the vnc session, they cant do anything
useradd <username> <password>
chmod 777 Desktop
Next we want to allow additional repositories to install vnc server.
This site is well trusted and im sure most of you are familiar with it.
Next, Install vncserver
apt-get install vnc4server
Next, logout of root and login to the other account you made.
After loggin in, vnc4server -geometrxy 1024x768 -depth 24
This will prompt you to create a password:
Now you can type "vnc4server -geometry 1024x768" without quotes into terminal and now you can login using vnc client.
To do this, use your server's Ip address and the vnc's session id to login.
Here is an example:
After doing so, you will be prompted to put in the password you put in earlier for vnc.
Now, start Firefox, goto the utorrent website and download utorrent. start up a new terminal, and just wine where u saved utorrent. For the tutorial sake, we'll say we saved utorrent.exe to the desktop. Start-up a terminial session and cd your way to Desktop. then wine utorrent.exe and voila you got utorrent running in linux
Hope this helps some of you fellow uploaders out there.
