How to Run MS-DOS Applications in Wine


I have read that Wine supports or might support executing MS-DOS apps and games but my question is how. I can't find a way to execute them. I am trying Monkey Island for example or The 7th Guest. Using Wine 1.4rc2 right now.

The following link is why I ask this:

It appears as if DosBox is integrated in Wine but this is the confusion. If it is already integrated, how to execute MS-DOS.

Best Answer

DOSBox is a good solution, but Dosemu is a more powerful option; for example, in DOSBox you can't use a printer.

$ sudo apt-get install dosemu

you can edit the configuration if it doesn't suit you:

$ vi /etc/dosemu/dosemu.conf
