Go back to where you downloaded wine, act like you are going to download it again. Where the browser asks you for a file name, look at what directory it is downloading into. Whatever that directory is is where your file is. You might also want to look at the file name so you know what it is called, also.

Open a terminal and type:

find / -name 'wine*'

That will look for every file starting with "wine" from the root. It can take a little while. If you are using Gnome or KDE, they both should have tools to help you to look for files as well.

In linux you don't open the file on download. You save it to disk. Otherwise it saves the file in /tmp.

Seriously, your download manager should tell you where it is putting the file. Otherwise--as noted--you can use find (or the file search function in your GUI menus).

Open a terminal and type this command:

Code:
$ whereis wine
The output will give you a list of files with "wine" in the name. My output looked like this after using it:

Code:
$ whereis wine
wine: /usr/bin/wine /usr/lib/wine /usr/X11R6/bin/wine /usr/bin/X11/wine /usr/share/wine /usr/share/man/man1/wine.1.gz
If you're new to Linux, you should know that wine is executed from a terminal. Type wine --help to learn how to use it.

Code:
$ wine --help
