In your above posts you never tried giving the full path in the menu: /usr/bin/wine /home/nai/.wine/drive_c/ahdw/ahd3.exe

Also try wine C:\ahdw\ahd3.exe or wine "C:\ahdw\ahd3.exe" (if that's where you installed the program in your wine environment).

Thanks for all your suggestions, they are appreciated, but the results are the same with or without the /usr/bin/.

Damn. That's wacked. This is a stretch, but do you have multiple wine executables and maybe one of them doesn't have the execute privilege?

I also have gotten wine to work with custom KDE menu items, although I used the 32-bit version and pulled the latest wine version.

Whatever directory you're in when you run wine from the terminal, set that as your "work path" in the KDE menu editor. See if that works.

Sorry, no Joy.

It works in Slackware 12.2, with KDE 3.5.10.

It works in Slackware64-13, with Xfce.

It does NOT work in Slackware64-13, with KDE 4.2.4, and wine-1.1.17-i486-1_rlw.tgz or wine-1.1.29-x86_64-1alien.tgz.

Update.
The problem remains with KDE 4.3.1.
OTOH, all the other problems I was having with 4.2.4 seem to have been resolved with 4.3.1.

I know this shouldn't matter, but are you using an icon with your menu item? If not, could you try it?

Just yesterday I installed the latest wine 1.1.30 and created a menu item for a game I play. This is with stock KDE 4.2 in Slackware.

The Solution.

Eureka!
Finally solved it.
I have ms-office running in WINE (all but the sound). Don't use it, but like to show people that it is possible. I took a look at the way WINE set up the menu entries and wrote it down. Then I had WINE install The American Heritage Dictionary to wherever it preferred and wrote down the location. WINE did not, for whatever reason, make a menu entry for the program.
I opened the menu editor and put this on the command line:

env WINEPREFIX="/home/username/.wine" wine "C:\AHDW\AHD3.EXE"

Bingo. It fired right up.

Now, if I could get sound to work in WINE...

Wine doesn't create menu items for most of the programs that I install--I just create the menu items myself. For your sound issues, run winecfg once and select Alsa as your default audio driver. That should be all there is to it.

Did that and it tests OK from the config panel, but sound doesn't work when running a slide show in Powerpoint.
