First startup wizard will helps you to make all necessary steps for successful Q4Wine setup.

You can navigate through setup process by pressing Next button to go to the next wizard's page, or by pressing Back button for return.

Wine paths configuration:

Wine Path Wizard Screen

On this step you will need to specify wine paths.

Note: in most case q4wine will try to detect wine binaries paths automatically. If it fails specify them manually.

gui sudo This profile will use gui sudo binary to run mount\umount bnaries with root\user password prompt before running command.
FuseISO This profile will use FuseISO application which is an FUSE module to mount ISO filesystem images such as .iso, .nrg, .bin, .mdf and .img files.
It currently support plain ISO9660 Level 1 and 2, Rock Ridge, Joliet, and zisofs. to mount/umount images via fuse.

Note: This is most preformed profile for q4wine usage.

Also: You can change default mount and umount command line strings by setting path to third party binary or script. Use following variables as template arguments:


Option name  Description 
%SUDO% Contains path to sudo binary.
%GUI_SUDO% Contains path to gui sudo binary.
%MOUNT_BIN% Contains path to mount binary.
%UMOUNT_BIN% Contains path to umount binary.
%MOUNT_DRIVE% Contains path to device which will be mounted.
%MOUNT_POINT% Contains path to mount point.
