I just tried to run winetricks from winehq. When running sh winetricks with no args, you're supposed to get a GUI to select packages. All I got was a bar across the bottom of my screen asking me which Windows I wanted to install.

Anyone else ever get this?

Moved from Desktop Environments to Unsupported Software as winetricks is not officially supported.

You need zenity for gnome, kdialog for kde or xmessage. Maybe function that detects DE doesn't return valid result, it happened to me once so I hacked script a little...

I use Fluxbox and xmessage is installed. If I'm still not getting the dialog to show up, what else could I be missing?

gksu doesn't work for me either. I'm guessing it's the same problem.
