    Hi, Nerdio.

    It's been a while since I installed anything in Wine.
    But I recall that I simply opened up a file manager (Nautilus, Konqueror, Rox...). Navigate to the file, right-click on it.
    There was an option labelled something like:
    Code:
    Open with Wine Installer
    From there, I installed just like in Windows.

    BTW... the only programs I have installed in Wine are Diablo2 and HHOMM3.

    Hope that helps.

    What program are you trying to run? you might find some details, or some tips on installation on the WineDB.
    Also, the current version of Wine is 1.4.
    You might want to update to the latest version and give it another go.
