Installing AdiIRC in Wine on 64 bit Ubuntu and OS X.

Wine is a Windows compatibility layer which allows you to run many Windows programs on Linux/OS X.

Winetricks is a script to help you install various Windows components and programs.

Install Wine

On Ubuntu/Debian Type:

apt-get install wine

On OS X type:

# If homebrew is not installed, type
/usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL" 

# Then install Wine through homebrew
brew install wine

Create a 32 bit Wine prefix


# You may have to remove any previous wine folders by typing rm -r ~/.wine, note: this will delete your wine folder and all apps installed in it.
# Tou can also install into a separate 32 folder by changing WINEPREFIX=~/.wine to something like WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32, in that case, you should type WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32 before running wine AdiIRC.exe
WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine winecfg

Skip this step if you are running a 32 bit Linux.
