In general, right click on the exe file and select Open With Wine.

In the future, please use better subject titles than some variation of "Help me I'm a newbie". Those who get the most and best help in these forums don't use the word "help" in their subject, and limit it to a very terse description of the problem such as "can't install gunbound".

exe = executable file aka program

That would be a good start, also, How to type an understandable post would be a good follow up read.

Try this...

Open a terminal, type "wine" no quotes, then drag the exe file you downloaded, into the terminal window.

After you do this, it should look something like this..

wine "path/to/file/name.exe"

Make sure there is a space between the word wine and the first ".

If all that checks out, hit enter.

If you want help, you're going to have to be more specific really. Spelling properly wouldn't hurt either!

Just so you'll stop posting and therefore my head will stop hurting trying to make sense of your posts..

http://appdb.winehq.org/appview.php?iAppId=2939

I don't know what version you have, but all 3 versions are rated "Garbage", which means it doesn't work with Wine. So your only option is *probably* Cedega. Now I know you "AIINT PAYIN 4 SUMTHIN LIEK DAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!" and you're very confuzzled, so just to remove any doubt, the app doesn't appear to work w/ Crossover either(another commercial application), but its current version is untested.

Sounds like you will either need to dual boot, or use Vmware.
