Where'd it go?


Hi! I'm new to linux and wanted to try out wine. I figured I could install it ands read the help file to learn it. I'm running Ubuntu 6.10. I went to add/remove programs and checked wine. I also checked xchat. It downloaded and installed. Xchat is in the Internet file under applications---wine can't be found. I did a search, and I found a config file. I've restarted the computer since then, and now a search doesn't produce anything. What happened to it? What directory should I look in to find wine? If I do find it, how do I setup a shortcut to it on the desktop? Any and all responses will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Wine runs at a "sub-system" level. Just right click on a .exe file or double click-and wine will kick in.

By the way, put your distro in your profile so people will know which distro to give you an answer for.

Thanks for the response. I can't find the .exe file. That's what I'm trying to locate. As I stated, I'm using Ubuntu 6.10.

No, Wine is already installed, what I am saying is that Wine will kick in when you open a .exe file. You don't have to 'look' for it, it is already running when you need it.

Sorry, I didn't understand what you meant. Thanks. I should've read the wine documentation first----I'm doing that now. Thanks, again.
