his second example showed quotes around the windows style path. Either add the quotes as was depicted or you can specify the linux style path instead, ie. WINEPREFIX="/home/justin/.wine" WINEDEBUG='-all' wine-pthread /home/justin/.wine/drivec/Program\ Files/Activision/Call\ of\ Duty\ 4\ -\ Modern\ Warfare/iw3mp.exe
consider changing into the specific directory (linux path) first:
cd /home/justin/.wine/drivec/Program\ Files/Activision/Call\ of\ Duty\ 4\ -\ Modern\ Warfare
and then calling:
WINEPREFIX="/home/justin/.wine" WINEDEBUG='-all' wine-pthread iw3mp.exe
directly thus avoiding the need for a path. The first example in the original posting had implied that.
Since I can't test these suggestions you are going to have work around any typos. This won't be an issue if you understand paths and your specific setup.
I'd seriously consider reading up on command line basics and what not so as to be able to find your way around. I think it will be more beneficial to you with that approach rather than learning on a case by case basis. Other complexities are going to crop up while using wine [ ie. manual patch and compile of the wine source ] and there are guides for alot of things, but most any guide out there will assume you are familiar with certain basic concepts.
