How does one create a launcher for an application in Wine under Ubuntu 14.04 LTS? Instructions at "https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wine" say, 'right click on the desktop and select "Create a launcher."' Unfortunately, when I right click on the desktop, the options do not include "Create a launcher." Instead, I get, "New Folder "New Document", "Paste", "Organize Desktop by Name", "Keep Aligned", and "Change Desktop Background". Thanks.
You can create a launcher item in /usr/share/applications or in /home/user/.local/share/applications.
This is a file with extension .desktop.
Open a terminal,
sudo -i nano /usr/share/applications/msoffice.desktop
The file should look similar to this content:
[Desktop Entry] Name=Msoffice Comment=Microsoft Office Exec=sh -c "cd /home/user/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Msoffice_Folder; wine msoffice.exe" Icon=wine Terminal=false Type=Application Categories=Wine; StartupNotify=true
Ctrl + O, save file. Ctrl + X, close nano.
So you'll be able to locate your application in the Launcher by typing "msoffice".
