NAME

winetricks – manage virtual windows environments using wine

SYNOPSIS

winetricks [options] [verb … ]

DESCRIPTION

winetricks is an easy way to work around common problems in Wine.

It provides simple commands to tweak Wine settings, download and
install missing Windows DLLs and fonts, or install various games or
apps with appropriate workarounds for the current version of wine.

It can be used via gui or commandline. The commandline mode is
intended both for interactive use and as a building block in fancier
wine frontends and in automated regression testing.

winetricks with no arguments displays a GUI using either Zenity or Kdi‐
alog.
