Exclamation Wine gui problems

I not sure how else to explain this problem, but here are some pictures that might help clear up what I mean.
As you can see buttons usually found in the gui are missing. How do I fix this?
My distro is openSUSE 10.3 x86_64 and the wine version is 0.9.58

Hi, I've had this problem in the past. You probably need to reinstall Wine. All of your Wine programs etc. should be in ~/.wine so first rename this to something like ~/.wine_good or similar. Then uninstall and reinstall Wine, however that's done in your distro (your programs are safe, since you renamed your folder). Once that's done, rename ~/.wine_good back to ~/.wine. (If you can't do this because a new ~/.wine folder was created during reinstallation, just delete the newly created folder.) Now see if your GUI's look right.

If not, you'll probably need to reinstall your programs individually. Rename your ~/.wine folder to something else, and then try installing a program. A new ~/.wine folder will be created. If the GUI looks ok, then keep installing your programs into the new ~/.wine folder.
