I've tried installing WINE with WINEtricks, as I want to run a DOS window on a Linux Mint 64 bit system. So far, I haven't been successful at doing this. Has anyone been able to accomplish this task, and if so, what installation and setup tricks did you use?
On Linux Mint, installing Wine with
sudo apt install wine
will then allow you to run Wine’s implementation of the Windows command-line interpreter by running
If you’re really looking for DOS, the simplest option is to install DOSBox:
sudo apt install dosbox
will then open a DOS emulator.
Wine can automatically use DOSBox to run DOS binaries.
You’ll also find DOSEMU (the
dosemu package) but it’s possibly a little harder to set up.
