First, you should not be running this as root:
bash-4.1# wine
Second, you should type "wine /path/to/*.exe" ... from your home directory
darkstarbyte@lost-planet ~ $ wine .wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Adobe/Adobe\ InDesign\ CS2/InDesign.exe
Third, why did you mark your thread as [SOLVED] ?

Me thinks all your problem is because you're not in the correct $PATH ... let's hope so.


bash, exe, execute, slackware, wine
