View Full Version : [ubuntu] Adding items to the Applications menu (Wine related)

So I want to add something to my applications list to be launched through wine. It seems to me that I should be able to set up an application that has a command something like this: wine "C:\WizGold\WIZARD.EXE" or wine /home/nicholas/.wine/drive_c/WizGold/WIZARD.EXE right?

Well this command will cause a screen to come up and then close again before I can even see what's going on. This happens whether I use the item I added to the applications list or try and type the command in to a terminal.

However, if I browse to WIZARD.EXE and right click and tell it to open with another application and select wine windows program loader it works great.

So what am I doing wrong?

Okay, so I figured out I just need to type the /path/program to make something work, and that my issue seems to be totally unrelated to adding items to the application menu, so this can be closed or whatever.
