General information

The paths are all configurable of course. The help information that the scripts give is dynamic and is provided here only for reference.



A wine helper designed mostly for games and apps that need specific configuration that potentially conflicts with others.

$ scotch2 -h
scotch2 — a WINE prefix manager and app launcher
Usage: scotch2 [options] <prefix>
    -n          Create a new prefix.
    -l          Launch an app in the prefix.
    -q          That's enough out of you! Makes scotch2 quiet.
    -k          Kill everything in the prefix.
    -d          Launch the app in a virtual desktop.
    -D [size]   Set the size of the virtual desktop (i.e. 1280x720).
    -s          Start a shell with the prefix set.
    -A [args]   Pass additional args to the app.
    -t [path]   Specify a template to use when creating a prefix (default: /home/fbt/.scotch2.d/.template).
    -h          Show this message.

The apps are specified in <prefix_dir>/scotchrc in the following format:
apps[<app_name>]="<path/to/exec> [options]"
The app that shares the name with the prefix is the default one, i.e. you can launch steam like this:
$ scotch2 steam
by adding a “steam” app into the prefix' scotchrc file.


A script that builds wine with specified patches. Nothing special here

$ vintner -h
Vintner — wine builder
Usage: vintner [-p <patch>] [-P <prefix>] [-c <configure_options>]
    -p <patch>                  Specify a patch file to apply. Multiple patches can be applied at the same time.
    -P <prefix>                 Specify a prefix ($cfg_prefix) to install to. Vintner won't run “make install” if this parameter isn't set by this flag or in /home/fbt/.vintnerrc.
    -c <configure_options>      Specify additional configure options.
