Downloaded wine, but can't find the program?

I downloaded Wine, but I can’t find the program, i can see it when i look in software manager but it’s no where else.

I want to play sims 3, but I can’t use wine as I can’t find it :’(

First open a terminal and type this and hit enter


set it to use xp and sound to ALSA

to run a .exe insaller, do this

wine ./setup.exe

What you had downloaded ? tar.gz ??
I recommend you to install via package manager.
open Yast-> software -> software management

search filter-> wine
what is the wine version installed ? check available version ( which is shown in the parenthesis )
ex. wine 1.0.1 ( 1.1.3 )
If not shown latest (1.1.3) or not installed latest version … then follow this

  • press ctrl+M (=repository manager )
  • add new repository
  • select community repository
  • check mark on WINE
    it will refresh the package manager.
    After pressing OK, it redirects to the “install software”.
    again search filter type “wine”. select the wine among the search results
    right click on it, select “update”.

now you installing latest WINE

maybe you want to use playonlinux
it is a graphical frontend based on wine with special preconfigured settings
for a variety of windows games
you can install it via webpin (if you use 11.2) or if you have opensuse
11.0. or 11.1 it is in the packman repository
