Wine works under KDE but not XFCE2

When I'm using Linux with KDE, I can click on spider.exe (one of the only things that I use Windows for!), associate it with wine, and play.

Then, when I boot up XFCE2, I do the same thing, but it won't load up.

I know that there's a simple way to fix this (I'm sure of it!), but darn it, I just can't claw my way out of newbieland to find it.

KDE uses artsd as a sound server.
Xfce don't use a sound server.
Open a terminal and launch artsd before launching spider. It should work.

You don't need artsd to run wine. I never run artsd and use wine all the time. More likely it's an association thing. It should run from a term command like wine spider.exe
