To run WinSCP under Linux (Ubuntu 12.04), follow these steps:
1) sudo apt-get install wine (run this one time only, to get 'wine' in your system, if you haven't it)
2) download "Portable executable" from https://winscp.net/eng/download.php
3) make a folder and put the content of zip file in this folder
4) open a terminal
5) type "sudo su"
6) type "wine WinSCP.exe"
Done! WinSCP will run like in Windows environment!
I get this error message from the terminal when doing this:
Wine: cannot find L"C\\windows\\system32\\WinSCP.exe
There has to be a simple trick to overcopme this...?
Any help will be apreciated.
You have to guide wine to find the exe. Before launching, change the directory to the one you unpacked the zip to in step 3.
