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.
+ win .net apps uses win librearies.)
+ I use wine mostly for Heidisql (Mysql admin tool) and some time for
+ games.
+ For menu I think menu structure should be like this
+ KDE/Gnome menu>Applications>Wine>(From here it should be similar to All
+ programs menu of win xp)
+ Another issue that I found is that uninstalled win app did not removed
+ from the Menu.

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.

Shouldn't these be filed with Wine project since it already creates
menu items and such? Simply add one for config?

Great idea!

We need additional feature, like profiles for different windows
Games: Civilization IV, Starcraft
Multimedia application: Virtualdubmod

So, who is working on wine feature?

We need to suggest of using native Windows DLL if Windows is installed
on other patition. Not all native DLLs should been used, but only this,
which doesn't provide problems. Also, once Windows parition is
removed/unreadable we should show message at startup, that Wine won't
use native dlls and some applications could been broken.

#9: Sławomir Lach (lachu) (2010-06-30 12:51:35) (reply to #8)
This idea will make Wine developers work more noise, because more bugs
report will been created by users using native dlls, but much more
programs we can run this way.
