Wine Problems[Solved]

Post by makinu1der2 » Tue Aug 25, 2009 5:18

I have searched the forum but was unable to fins a solution. I have recently installed wine and everything went fine during
the install. The problem is whenever I try and open Wine from Kmenu > Applications it show on the Task Manager bar for
a few seconds with the bouncing icon beside the cursor then disappears. I have tried removing and installing several time but issue is still the same.

After installing (using wine) the program designed for MS Windows on my system, I can start the program clicking on
Kickoff>Applications>Wine>Programs>Phantom EFX>Reel Deal Slots - Black Beards Revenge>Blackbeard's Revenge Manual, Play Blackbeard's Revenge

I prefer to just click on the desktop icon for the program

Have you configured wine?
In a terminal type

Have you installed the program you want to run?
In a terminal change to the directory that contains the setup files and type
wine name-of-setup-file.exe
You can navigate to the file in your favourite file manager then right click on the file, select open with, and type wine

You can find a lot more info at

You could always have a look in
Desktop ASUS M2N-MX SE Plus, AMD 64 X2 Dual Core 5200, 4 Gb RAM, GeForce 9500 1GB
Notebook HP CQ61-311AX, AMD CPU M320, 4 Gb RAM, Radeon HD 4300 512 MB

Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once!

Cool...Thanks...I used to be able to open Wine under Application but now it just sits there and disappears. The inly thing I did recently was update to KDE 4.2 but that shouldn't be an issue ...right?

Anyways I am still able to install my programs in Wine from terminal so...Thanks for the links as well.
