What about this one?
http://www.reviewlinux.com/?m=show&id=13883

There are two versions:

Updated normal Winetricks with new GUI

Wintricks-alpha with more options.
A top-level menu which gives you a choice of category (dll, font, app, or setting).

Thanks bigpup, that is just the thing. The first time I ran the basic script I got what have been getting in green_dome's wine--all of the options in a single long row that would go across 4 or 5 screens. Ah but then I installed zenity and got the gui. Thanks. I will pass it along to green_dome.

I like the Bordeaux for Linux aspect. Wink

Heh, yeah, I can relate... about half an hour or so ago, I wanted to see if something was available in winetricks, so I went ahead and opened the (xdialog) GUI. Spent a while Alt-dragging the long strip around just to see all the buttons (which aren't in alphabetical order, either, much less by function/driver/etc. Smile ), only to reach the far right end and realize there's no close button on the end. Razz

So, as I didn't want to install anything at the time, I ended up having to kill both winetricks and the xdialog processes in pprocess. Smile

We are on the way to making that more convenient. I remembered that in addition to zenity we should include cabextract because winetricks often needs that.

In fact, here it is! Uninstall your current wine and install this one (only in ibiblio for a day or two). OK, I am done here Wink I just remade this with yad 0.8.1 instead of zenity--just posted today by stu90--saved 300KB.

I'm using Puppy 4.3.1, though. Smile Maybe I should wait and see what green_dome does with it, just in case he's about to release Wine 1.3.14...

Yeah, it was a reminder why I didn't want to use the xdialog version of Winetricks, definitely. There's always been a recommendation to use the command-line version, instead, but I didn't feel like having to do a lot of scrolling in the terminal just to look for a package. So, naturally, I pick the more difficult method. Razz

You should be able to use the pet I made if you wanted to. green_dome compiles in 4.3.1 anyway I think.
