Hello. I use LinuxMint 13 (maya) with the Cinnamon desktop and the most recent available wine. I have not been able to run the new installer in wine; I've run it in the GUI and in the Terminal; I've run it with and without root priveledges: tried both sudo and su (actually logging in as root) and each time, I am told that I do not have the necessary permissions to run it. I finally went to the file, opened it's properties in the GUI and told it to be executed as a program. No dice. I ran chmod 777 (giving it full permissions) and I still can't run it.
I am convinced that wine is not the problem. I removed it then reinstalled it, and it did not fix it. I'm also having the same problem with the updated Alpha Centauri installer, but I just downloaded and ran the Heroes III installer with no problem at all.
Is GOG blocking wine somehow, or is there something else I need to try?
