    Try looking under Applications> Wine> Programs. It should be listed there.

    or try

    apt-cache policy wine
    or

    whereis wine
    in terminal to see the location

    you can add it later to the panel if desired,
    if not already there ..

    That is the most obvious place and is where I looked first. Not there

    Wine is not the problem, the problem is finding the programmes that I have downloaded that open in wine.

    Hidden!

    Re: where is my programme?

    wine creates a mock C: drive structure.. i think it's in ~/.wine/drive_C/

    so your applications will be in there. see if you can simply launch them with
    Code:
    wine ~/.wine/drive_c/path/to/program.exe
    if so, you can then create a menu entry with that command, since it seems one wasn't created for you.

    In your home if you enable see hidden files you will find .wine. Then c drive and then program files. You can open the choosen program by right clicking on it and choosing to open with wine.
