Tried doing this but no changes:

Places>Home Folder>Ctrl+H>.config>menus>applications.menu

<Menu>
<Name>wine-wine</Name>
<Deleted/>
</Menu>

Remove the <Deleted/> and save the document.

Try with


sudo dpkg-reconfigure wine

.

After you install wine, you need to open a Terminal Window (Console) and
run the following:


winecfg


Once winecfg runs, the .wine subdirectory is created and you may exit.

Then go to PLACES -> HOME and type CNTL H (CONTROL held Depressed plus H)
and you will see a subdirectory named .wine

CNTL H toggles the view for ALL Hidden (.allhiddensubdirectories) subdirectories ""ON" then "OFF".

Zit Zot......Done!

Doesn't the Wine menu entry only appear after you've installed a program in Wine?

subsharm@subsharm:~$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure wine
/usr/sbin/dpkg-reconfigure: wine is not installed

i removed wine and re-installed it from synaptic, still same output.

Your wine definitely isn't installed, that could answer why there is no ~/.wine directory, anyway could you


apt-get update
apt-get check

then paste the output of:


dpkg-query -s wine
.

After i ran winecfg, .wine folder has come up in the home folder but the problem here is that the wine entry is not there in main menu.

Have you tried editing the menu and seeing if it just needs to be 'ticked'

You made mention in post#2 of deleting the entry.

Assuming you not to be using 11.04 - right click the menu and then it'll start alacarte. If you are using unity then I'm afraid I have no idea.

Also - why are you running winecfg as root?

Umm..problem is solved. I needed to "tick" the wine entry on main menu. I don't know why this has happened as i've been using ubuntu for 5 years and this is the first time i've seen this problem

Anyways, thanks alot everyone for providing your suggestions! :)
