Although the project has yet to deliver an offical release, I am still excited by a Wine-Doors alternative. Since the Doors is dormant — it hasn’t released an update in over a year — the possibility of a next generation package manager for WINE is really something to celebrate . Wine Package Manager (WPM) was renamed to Wine Cellar last month according to the project home page on Google Code. If it is anything like Vineyard, the fantastic recent addition to the WINE universe, then we might just realise the geek dream of a package manager to manage all those silly Windows files which invariably accumulate around the WINE virtual drive.
You can check out the code:
hg clone https://wine-cellar.googlecode.com/hg/ wine-cellar
Remember, Microsoft may give users Windows, but Linux still gives us the whole House.
If you happen to be running a Windows partition, try out Win-Get, which is an Apt-like utility.
Win-Get can also be installed into the windows directory of your WINE installation! This might create some problems if you already using a package manager such as Wine-Doors, but these should be trivial.
Download and unzip win-get-0.1.2 into ~/.wine/drive_c/windows
then run and install launchy for windows
wine win-get.exe install launchy
It will install launchy for windows from the win-get site.
