    Default Where is my WINE

    I am running openSUSE 11.2 with both KDE and GNOME. When i was on my YAST install i tried to install the WINE program. After the install and a reboot, i could not find the program. When i checked on YAST it said it was installed. Is there somewhere other than the program menu where WINE might be located?



    Thanks in advance

    The WINE menu's seem to vanish for some bizzare reason it does not create menu entries in openSUSE, at least it never did for me.
    But dont loose hope, playonlinux is a good alternative to wine plus I have some files prepped just in case you want to manually add wine to the main menus.

    Yeh I think the wine packaged for openSUSE is semi borked.
    Playonlinux can be found here:
    PackMan :: Package details for PlayOnLinux

    Note: there is no package for 11.2 yet nor is it the latest 3.7 release of the app, but meh.
    Just use the one for 11.1, its fine.

    No prob, it covers the same apps as wine does as its directly based on wine.
    If you need to use an app not listed in the playonlinux installer just use the non supported software feature.,
    I can give a tutorial if you need it.

    Whenever I have needed to use wine I have just run it from the command
    line following it with the .exe file needing to run:

    wine someApplication.exe

    Good luck.

    There's a way to associate file types with command (I think I invoked it via Krusader) so I just associated Windows' exe files with Wine. Wine wasn't in the menu so I just typed it in the dialog. Works like a charm now.
