I am running Ubuntu 9.10 and have some programs under Wine. When running a native program, ie. Gimp, how can I open files that are in the wine directories?

I have been unable to get any of those directories to show under an "open" dialogue. Any help appreciated.

Wine files are in a hidden directory. So, when you select 'open' from the Gimp menu, press ctrl h to toggle hidden files. Wine stores files under .wine (ie: home/user-name/.wine
