Question Wine Friggin Rules! But this makes no sense...


I've gotten wine to run my KaZaA software and my Microsoft Word (ok, ok, I know about AbiWord, but only until they can do tables worth poo). But what doesn't make any sense is that I go into my menu editor and create an object with the appropriate command line, run it, and it closes itself.

I can use the exact same command line in the terminal window and it works, but from the gnome start menu, it botches. Ideas anyone?

depends on what it is, if it's something that needs to run in an xterm you may need this

xterm -e programname
