    Winetricks not 64 Bit

    Okay, so if I try and install Steam, I (according to this guide) need Winetricks. So I installed Wine and then Winetricks, but when I try and do:

    Code:
    sh winetricks corefonts allfonts tahoma gecko gecko-dbg vcrun2005
    I get the error:

    You're using a 64-bit WINEPREFIX, most of winetricks hasn't been fixed for win64 yet. You can force a 32-bit WINEPREFIX by using WINEARCH=win32.

    Now, I googled this, and almost all results seem to return to the same conversation. I did not understand the answer given. Can someone please dumb it down for a new Linux user on what I need to do?

    Try the true 32-bit version of Wine instead:

    Code:
    su
    yum remove *wine*
    yum install wine.i686
    exit
    
    rm -rf $HOME/.local/share/applications/wine
    rm -rf $HOME/.wine
