Im brand new to linux... installed it like 5 hours ago..... I downloaded and i think i installed wine now all my exe's are little wineglasses when i click on them it tells me it wants me to chose the file to open it with i looked under emulators and there is a folder for wine but there is no file in that folder that i can use

I also have the choice to browse, only problem is i dont know where linux keeps all its program files any ideas?

Thanks guys I know i must be a complete *****

What distribution are you using?

Program binaries in UNIXen are stored in /bin (system-critical binaries), /usr/bin (basic utilities), and /usr/local/bin (user-installed binaries).

The "open with" box should have a little text box near the titlebar. Type "wine" into this box and see if it works.
