i recently installed wine and other softwares! where they go? how can i find them?
all your installed software should be on your application browser it is all alphabetical so it should be close to the bottom of the list
I’d like to ask the same question, where wine went? I see that it’s installed, but can’t see it on “Applications”, neither can I get it working, that is, I don’t know how- to do that…
How can I install a downloaded program, such as Firefox? I click on the downloaded program, and it opens on the Archive Manager…then what to do?
I am VERY new to OpenSuse
you can run wine from a console,just type wine & press enter. As for Firefox,@Chdslv, why not use rpm’s to install instead of using tar.gz files ? or use YaST-software - Software management to install software
When you install wine, you dont actually get an entry in your application launcher (k-menu, or gnome…).
I’d advise you to install wine-doors. When installed you will get an entry under “Sytem”, listed as “Windows application Installer”.
With this app you will be able to install windows application through a nice GUI (as I see you’re not really familiar with cli…)
PS. Some other advice: get to know some basic cli. Could come in handy
i did tried to run it from command. but i recieved:
omid@linux-3hj1:~> wine Usage: wine PROGRAM [ARGUMENTS...] Run the specified program wine --help Display this help and exit wine --version Output version information and exit
i trued as:
omid@linux-3hj1:~> wine PROGRAM wine: could not load L"C:\\windows\\system32\\PROGRAM.exe": Module not found
as i remember in ubuntu it had a GUI! but no problem. now what should i do?
thank u! wine-doors worked
could u introduce me some resources for cli?
in ubuntu i have installed 30 windows softwares in linux :->
including photoshop, jetAudio, MSOffice, IE, Internet download accelator, need for speed , babylone6 and…
I have wine installed and all I need to do is go to the task bar click on computer more applications then a window will open up and I scroll down to wine and it shows all of my Wine things that I have
u r in gnome! we are talking about kde
You’ve got a long (but exciting) way to go
Have a look @ LinuxCommand.org: Learn the Linux command line. Write shell scripts.
You can also find some SuSE books on the net for help!
- Books - openSUSE
- newbe book: http://www.suseblog.com/?p=141 (best for you i think!)
and by the way, if you want some polished way of installing and using windows applications AND support wine, you could give crossover (office) a try (commercial).

ah…i see you seem to think that Linux is just a way to run
you will REALLY see the speed and benefits of Linux when you learn to
use the non-Windows[tm] (native Linux) programs like:
photoshop -> GIMP
M$Office -> OPen Office
IE -> Firefox
and MANY MANY others, see
