Wine is never launched by itself; the most common way to use it is to type "wine" in a command prompt, followed by the name of a Windows executable. I.e., from the directory containing the executable,
If you use KDE or Gnome, recent versions of wine will put a 'Wine' entry in your panel menu, and programs installed through wine can be launched from the menu that way. Of course, you'll have to use one of the above methods to install the program first
Wine also comes with a set of tools, such as a registry editor, a file manager (like Windows Explorer), and a configuration tool to set both general and program-specific wine options. Type "wine" and hit Tab once or twice in a console to see a full list of wine-related tools. Really, the only one you'll have a lot of use for is winecfg.
Hope that helps!Stand up and be counted as a Linux user!
