Just installed Office 2010 in my ubuntu x64 and run smooth but now I have an stetic issue dash and synapse can find the office applications :) but all the office apps are shown with the wine icon.

I change it manually with an icon pack at the wine folder but still with wine icons.

So any idea to do this??

From what I can deduce, it seems your problem lies with custom applications in ~/.local/share/applications.

Simply clear this folder: rm -rf ~/.local/share/applications/*/* and it should be all good.

Please note that your applications will now not show up again. I would suggest removing them from Wine, and installing them with PlayOnLinux. This application will ensure that you get the correct icons (though in your launcher under Unity they will still show with Wine icons).
