Hi,

I just installed Wine 1.0 RC2. It isntalled fine and I did the winecfg, etc. The problem is that there're no icons listed in the Applications menu and i cant access the C: drive that it creates or run anything. I tried running a program from terminal but that didnt work either. I removed it and reinstalled multiple times using all different ways that I can think of. Removed from Synaptics, from sudo apt-get remove wine etc. Reinstalled manually or from the depositories - same thing. Installs fine but doesnt create shortcuts and i think it doesnt work.

Any ideas what should I do?
Thanks

What exactly happened when you tried running the program from the terminal (i.e. what was output to the terminal)? Have you logged out or rebooted since installing Wine (sometimes the menu items don't appear until you do that)? The "C:" drive that it creates is actually in a hidden directory in your home folder. Fire up Nautilis, hit CTRL+H to show hidden files and look for ".wine", you will find the "C:" drive (labeled "drive_c") in there.

I rebooted after every install/reinstall and installing does complete succesfully. Now that I found Drive_C i tried to run IE6 which is the only thing i have installed right now and nothing happens. Also I dont have any icons in the APPs menu like i used to. On my laptop installed just fine and everything runs fine. Dunno what the problem is here.

<DirectoryDir>/home/doug/.local/share/desktop-directories</DirectoryDir>
<Deleted/>

remove the <Deleted/>
maybe kde does the same thing

and just reinstall wine. Everything is back to normal.

Simply,

Go to Applications - Click Add/Remove. Select All Apps from the menu. Search Wine.
Install it from Add/Remove.
Reboot.
Go to Applications - Terminal
Type winefile
Here you go! The Windows File Manager
