I don't want wine to:

  • have access to the network (extra: separately defined access control per program that uses wine to start)

  • have access to the main users files (run wine as different user??)

How can I do this? Are there any solutions?

(Using Ubuntu 11.04)

With winetricks you can sandbox the wine prefix to remove all links to $HOME. I believe the command is winetricks sandbox but winetricks has changed so much lately I'm not positive.
