    How?


    How do I run a windows program in wine? And, how do I run wine?

    ::edit::

    I got wine working though console. How do I import a program, or how do I search for it?

    Just double-click on the .exe. Wine should automatically run if it's installed.

    I tried, it didn't work. I saw wine appear on the bottom panel for a moment, but nothing opened. I tried wine notepad in console to make sure that it works, and it did, so I know that it's installed.

    Wine doesn't work for every single Windows program. You can go to

    http://www.winehq.com/site/documentation

    for more info on how to configure and use Wine.
    Otherwise, you may have to use Crossover Office.

    The 9.1 documentation said that they tested Office all the way through and that it runs fluidly

    open a term and type
    Code:
    wine programname.exe
    where programname.exe is the name of the windows program
