Wine not working in v.3 beta?

Wine not working in v.3 beta?

Postby jeffneedle » 16 Dec 2014, 17:18

I installed the new Gnome version, beta, of course. Using synaptic, I installed wine. But when I click on a Windows executable, as I can do in previous versions of Point, Wine is not an option to open the executable. When I click on Other, Wine is not listed, either. Bug in Wine or Point Linux beta? Thanks.

I had the same problem. I build a wine.desktop file and copy it into /usr/share/applications and ~/.local/share/applications.

The wine.desktop file contains:

[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Name=Wine Windows Program Loader
Exec=wine start /unix %f
MimeType=application/x-ms-dos-executable;
Icon=wine
NoDisplay=false
StartupNotify=true
Categories=System;

After this, you will get "Windows Program Loader" to show in the menus.

I hope this will help you.
