Title: better wine integration

openSUSE-11.3: Unconfirmed
Requester: Important

Requested by: Sharque uddin Ahmed Farooqui (safknw)

There are times we need to use windows applications. Wine applications
does not integrate well with with rest of desktop.
There is no menu entry for wine settings. Also there should be menu for
reboot wine. Proper icons for win apps.
better desktop shortcuts creation for kde and gnome.
Menu for wine notepad, command prompt and other provided utilities by
Also integration with mono for running .Net application ( because some
win .net  apps uses win librearies.)
I use wine for Heidisql (Mysql admin tool) and some time for games.

I agree that wine couldn't be integrated well enough, however I see
program icons of wine programs in the KDE start menu. exe programs are
automatically started in wine when clicking on them.
But apart from that, what other integrations would you like to see?

First, winecfg  in Wine menu :)
Assign to open exe with wine (if it is not already realised)

+ Also wine is not installed by default.  A new linux user may want to
+ run a Windows exe.  Maybe opensuse can detect that a user is trying a
+ run a Windows exe and prompt the user to install wine along with a
+ brief description of what wine is and will do.
