Those are all fine and dandy, but as far as im concerned my skill level in linux isnt great enough to even understand half of perhaps i just installed it incorrectly or something, but oncei download the wine "packages" i double click them. It goes through this process of installing packages, but as far as im concerned i cant tell what to do from there. Help now?

well if you installed it then you are going to have to make a fake windows drive, you can look into the app called winetools to do that for you, and then you can type ::
wine appname.exe and see if your app will run...

if the windos notepad opens, you're all set.
