    Using Wine with windows folders that have spaces

    I'm trying to test out some programs to see if they'll work for me in Knoppix, I'm an uber Linux n00b so go easy on me.

    anyway, my problem is I type in wine photoshop.exe to the konsole and it doesn't work, says

    wine: could not load L"c:\\windows\\system32\\photoshop.exe": Module not found

    So, I figured I needed to tell it where it was, so I've tried all the variations I can think of but nothing. The full windows path to the file is C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop CS\photoshop.exe So what format do I use to tell it where it is in Knoppix?

    Also, can I create shortcuts on my desktop so I don't gotta type all of this stuff in?

    Thanks.

    Put double quotes around the windows path. Alternatively you can just double quote that portion of the path that contains spaces.

    You might try a single backslash to 'escape' the space (i.e. make it a special character.)
