I use Fedora 20. I want to set up WINE now. I did the following guides successfully:

Install the dependencies first: $ sudo yum -y groupinstall 'Development Tools' $ sudo yum -y install libX11-devel freetype-devel Download Wine 1.7.2: $ wget -c Extract the archive and cd into it: $ tar -xvf wine-1.7.2.tar.bz2 $ cd wine-1.7.2/

And Install Wine with the command (I don't know it is right or not)

yum install wine

And I don't know what is the next steps to use WINE??? I really need your help. Thank you so much.

You needn't download the the source taball to install an application that's already packaged in the Fedora repos; so you only need to execute yum install wine to install wine on your system.

As for using wine, I suggest you have a look at the online documentation:

(Searching online will usually give you tips/guides/tutorials about using a popular application like wine).

I would suggest to install wine, wine-gecko and wine-mono. When your application tries to display a site, it loads Wine's custom Gecko to make you see the site/page.

Mono is an cross-platform implementation of the .NET Framework. Wine can use a Windows build of Mono to run .NET applications.

Maybe wine-mono isn't necessary most of the time, but wine-gecko is used alot.

su -c "yum -y install wine wine-gecko"

After that, you should be able to install windows applications by double click on the exe/msi file only.
