call windows program using wine


I have Linpus runnig on my Aspire One. I would like to setup an icon on the menu to start a windows program using wine. I can start it manually and it works fine. I want to be able to access it directly from the desktop.

Thansk for your help

For some reason I think you make a link to the executable file. Most gui's let you either make a copy or link and then you cut and paste to desktop or where ever.


Some star panels may need you to manually edit it. Like right click to add and you finish the rest.

Hope that is correct.

Thanks for the information. I assume you are referring to writing a script. Where would I find the correct code for the script?

I don't use Linpus but it is derived from Fedora and you probably then have gnome Desktop. Right click your Desktop in an open area, you should see an option to Create Launcher. Ffollow the prompts. In KDE, you right click and have options to create a link to URL or Application.
