More on Wine

Hi. Continuing my search for help with Wine.  Using latest Salent OS, fully updated.

I have a Wine app located at /home/jeff/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Watchtower/Watchtower Library 2014/E/wtlibrary.exe

I want to add a link to the dock at the bottom of the screen to launch this application.  Can someone tell me how this can be done?  I've used menulibre to add an entry to the menu, but it doesn't show up in the styler when I try to add the application too the dock.

Any help will be appreciated.

Re: More on Wine

Hi jeff, I don't use wine so i don't know if this is a valid solution for You.
Simple create a new file .desktop in /usr/share/application with administrator permissions
- in Name line indicate the name you want to see in the launcher (es. Name=Watchtower)
- in Exec line indicate entire paths of exe file ( es. Exec=/home/jeff/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Watchtower/Watchtower Library 2014/E/wtlibrary.exe
- in Icon line indicate path of icon you want to see

Now you can add your launcher in Tint2 dock using SalentosStyler

Here you can find more accurate instructions to do it.

Thanks for the info.  The problem is that, doing all of this, and then adding the icon to the dock, clicking on the icon does nothing.  Something is going on here, I don't know what.

Re: More on Wine

may be you need a little script file to launch Wine before and then the file .exe
by the way try to clic right mouse on file.exe and in property, choice "Wine" in "Open with" option ant than retry to double clic on your new launcher
