I've installed and used Wine countless times over the years but after a fresh install of Ubuntu 17.10 onto a new PC, Wine seems to install but nothing can be found. It is not in the menu and I can't locate anywhere in the menu settings to enable it. Also, I installed a Windows application but it too has disappeared. No desktop icon and nothing in the menu. Reading whatever I could find here and elsewhere I found nothing that solved the problem! I did install from the command line using the details found on the winehq site and entering winecfg does bring up the settings box.
The version I installed was done using:
sudo apt-add-repository 'https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/'
wget https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/Release.key && sudo apt-key add Release.key
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install --install-recommends winehq-stable
I tried installing winetricks using:
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Winetricks/winetricks/master/src/winetricks chmod +x winetricks sudo mv -v winetricks /usr/local/bin sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install winetricks
