NAME

       wineserver - the Wine server

SYNOPSIS

       wineserver [options]

DESCRIPTION

       wineserver  is  a  daemon process that provides to Wine roughly the same services that the
       Windows kernel provides on Windows.

       wineserver is normally launched automatically when starting wine(1), so you shouldn't have
       to  worry about it. In some cases however, it can be useful to start wineserver explicitly
       with different options, as explained below.

OPTIONS

       -d[n], --debug[=n]
              Set the debug level to n.  0 means no debugging information, 1 is the normal level,
              and  2 is for extra verbose debugging. If n is not specified, the default is 1. The
              debug output will be sent to stderr. wine(1) will automatically enable normal level
              debugging  when  starting  wineserver if the +server option is set in the WINEDEBUG
              variable.

       -f, --foreground
              Make the server remain in the foreground for easier debugging,  for  instance  when
              running it under a debugger.

       -h, --help
              Display a help message.

       -k[n], --kill[=n]
              Kill the currently running wineserver, optionally by sending signal n. If no signal
              is specified, sends a SIGINT first and then a SIGKILL.  The instance of  wineserver
              that is killed is selected based on the WINEPREFIX environment variable.

       -p[n], --persistent[=n]
              Specify  the  wineserver persistence delay, i.e. the amount of time that the server
              will keep running when all client processes have terminated. This avoids  the  cost
              of shutting down and starting again when programs are launched in quick succession.
              The timeout n is in seconds, the default value is 0 seconds. If n is not specified,
              the server stays around forever.

       -v, --version
              Display version information and exit.

       -w, --wait
              Wait until the currently running wineserver terminates.

ENVIRONMENT

       WINEPREFIX
              If  set,  the  content of this variable is taken as the name of the directory where
              wineserver stores its data (the default is $HOME/.wine). All wine  processes  using
              the  same  wineserver  (i.e.: same user) share certain things like registry, shared
              memory and kernel objects.  By setting WINEPREFIX to different values for different
              Wine processes, it is possible to run a number of truly independent Wine sessions.

       WINESERVER
              Specifies  the  path  and  name  of  the  wineserver  binary  that will be launched
              automatically by wine. If not set, wine will try to load  /usr/lib/wine/wineserver,
              and if this doesn't exist it will then look for a file named wineserver in the path
              and in a few other likely locations.

FILES

       ~/.wine
              Directory containing user specific data managed by wine.

       /tmp/.wine-uid
              Directory containing the server Unix socket and the  lock  file.  These  files  are
              created  in a subdirectory generated from the WINEPREFIX directory device and inode
              numbers.

AUTHORS

       The  original  author  of  wineserver  is  Alexandre  Julliard.  Many  other  people  have
       contributed new features and bug fixes. For a complete list, see the git commit logs.
