    Restoring deleted menue item

    After an attempt to get a chat ocx running with Firefox in Wine I decided to find another way so I did an uninstall.
    When I checked the main menu wine was still showing so I deleted the menu item..

    Later on I tried reinstalling Wine to use with another application but the program now wont show up in the main menu

    I tried to use the Menu editor and Type in Wine when it asks me what Item to add and it shows me an icon I can use..
    when the icon appears on the menu though it doesn't take me to the Wine folders.
    What is the easiest way to restore this and get it all back on the main menu?

    Thanx for any assistance with this

    Here is an example if you want to create a path to program:


    Open "Main Menu". Click on "Application" under "Menus" window, select
    "New Menu". Name it "Wine", fill out "Comments" if want to see tooltip with
    some description. Now click on "Wine" under "Menus" window, select "New Menu"...
    Repeat all these steps till you get to the shortcut to the program, i.e.
    when TVants directory is created you will choose "New Item" for TVantsX.X.X.XX. doesn't take me to the Wine folders.
    Some useful entries under Applications--Wine

    Name: Browse C:\ Drive
    Command: xdg-open ~/.wine/drive_c

    Name: Configure Wine
    Command: winecfg

    Name: Uninstall Software
    Command: uninstaller

    Name: Wine File Manager
    Command: winefile

    P.S. See this thread if you have trouble removing entries after
    uninstalling wine programs.

    Some residual files/directories could be find here:


    All files deleted in winefile end up here:
