    I have just installed the SuSe RPM for WINE.
    How do I start it up and use it, do I have to do it in a terminal or can I get it to work in a GUI.

    You can set mime setting to automatically execute wine after you clicked any exe file in filemanager. But it recomended to use console instead because you will notice throguh the output whats the error if your exe program not work. If you use KDE, using konqueror after you go to your exe location, press f4 to made console pop up. Then ypu can start type wine 'name of program.exe

    If you have winetools installed, try associating winelauncher with .exe and .EXE as it will be better for setting the environment and should work a little better. Just remember to set .exe and .EXE (maybe even .Exe as there is case sensitivity in *nix).
