    After installing run this in a terminal: winecfg
    Just make sure ALSA is selected Sound in the config and it is using XP.

    FrontPage - The Official Wine Wiki
    WineHQ - Wine Application Database

    Install apps with this from a terminal:

    wine ./Setup.exe
    (where Setup.exe is the name of the installer)
    Leap 15.1_KDE

    You can make nice shortcut icons for your windows applications in KDE/Gnome too.
    In KDE:
    - rightclick in your Desktop Folder and choose 'Create New...'
    - choose 'Link to application...'
    - if you have more Desktops, you maybe have a problem now: you're panel maybe is frozen and you cannot edit you're new shortcut. Enter <ctrl><Esc> and a system activity window appears. Find your shortcut process, it is called 'plasma-desktop' and rightclick on it. Choose 'show application window' and you'll find your shortcut again.
    - choose Application tab.
    - fill on Command line: wine yourprogram.exe
    - fill on Work path line: /place/anotherplace/ (most installed programs by wine you find in your home directory under .wine). If you have a program you don't have to install place it in /opt
    - in fact you're done now, you can press Ok and check it out.
    - but maybe you like a nice icon, so choose General tab.
    - click in ? picture
    - choose a system icon or better, choose Other icons and browse to your application folder. Most of time you'll find a nice icon to use there.
    - have fun...
