I am extremely new and I am trying to learn this great OS. I installed Mint 14 side by side with my Windows 7. I am using wine 1.4.1 to run origin. I see that origin works on winehq. It works for me and I am able to sign in but when I click on one of my games to download, it is very slow to install them. Running at 1k a second right now. I read up and people said that this is a known problem and someone posted a diff patch to fix it. What do i do with this information? http://bugs.winehq.org/attachment.cgi?id=43385&action=diff


I have tried many different things from forums that I read and still can't get anything to work right. Any help would be awesome. I would like to know how to manually install these diff patch files.
