    Hello, people. I just downloaded elementaryOS and this is my first time I use Linux at all.
    So I just installed Wine with this command in terminal:
    Code (Text):

    sudo apt-get install wine1.8
     
    After long installation, it said that Wine process is successfully completed. I can't find Wine in my app library.

    Oh god. I think I fixed it.

    There is no such thing as directory in Linux so to open exe files with Wine you just need to go where exe file is and open it as Wine app, like in Windows you open zip files in WinRaR instead of explorer, for example.

    Thats right. at the first time you install something with wine, it creates an invisible folder in /home/youruser/.wine/ with the structure like on windows (for example /home/youruser/.wine/drives/c/programs etc)

    after you installed wine via the software center you can install windows installers by right clicking the installer and choose open with --> 'wine windows program loader'. however you first need to allow the file to executing. to do this you right click, select properties and go to the permissions tab. here check the 'Allow executing file as program' box. you can configer some settings of wine with the program 'Configure Wine'.
