    having found no need for Windows(tm) based software, i have no wine
    installed on my system....but, i _think_ it is as easy as:

    issue a command line (in a terminal) like

    wine /full/path/to/game_executable.exe and press enter


    but, you probably should look at the wine manual...enter

    man wine

    and press enter...

    Hmmm... did you install wine from the openSUSE repos? I did under
    10.3 and I have a Wine sub menu in my KDE menus showing the apps.

    As for uninstalling Windows apps... well....

    If you have 'just' installed it you might want to reboot (Yah I know
    old Windows habit). The menu entries do not always get created.
    Sometimes logging out and back in is enough to fix it
    but rebooting should for certain. If you are using KDE 3.X or KDE4 using
    the 'traditional menu' there will be a wine bottle icon on the top level
    menu. For some reason in KDE 4 with panel menu it doesn't seem to show at
    all.

    in that case, run it from the konsole, you will see the error message(s) produced then

    eg


    Code:
    wine .wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/MyGame/MyGame.exe
    Also, it may be wise to check the AppDB on Wine HQ as there may be a known issue / workaround for the title (or it might just not work (booooo!))

    In a terminal window, do the following:

    find . -iname '*exe'

    From the resulting list (if there is one), you should see where the
    game program is located. Then just do:

    wine /path/to/gameprogram

    Hei,

    I have had the same issue with 10.3, though it seemed like random if the wine sub-menu appeared or not, I installed several times. In the classic kde menu list it always appeared though.

    I am now on the 11 with kde 3.5.... and wine apps appears under the applications sub-menu.
