Wine no longer appears as an option when right-clicking on an .exe fileNo, it doesn't.
I built a small which lets install same .exe files via GUI.
It's package: sparky-wine
Install it and try, it'll be in the Menu-> System
I had read your announcement and had already installed sparky-wine but wasn't aware how it worked.
After posting the above comment, I opened the Sparky Center
and then Software
, where I found a Wine Wrapper
windows icon. After clicking on it, I directed it to an .exe file that has be run manually every time I reboot, which installs Katmouse
, an app that permits me to scroll within EccoPro
, a windows PIM that I've used for years to store contacts, manage my agenda, set alarms and create expandable / collapsible Outlines. It's an old program that doesn't support scrolling because mice didn't have them in 1997, when NetManage decided to stop developing it.
Katmouse doesn't appear in the menus under Wine programs so I have to run the installer manually so I can scroll EccoPro. That places a red Katmouse icon in the notification part of the xfce4-panel.
FYI, the testing/unstable section of the CrunchBang Forum (for CrunchBang users tracking Debian Testing and/or Unstable) is full of posts regarding the difficulties they encounter trying to run applications that you have managed to successfully integrate into Sparky, a Debian Testing derivative.
You must be doing something right. Thanks for the tip. I would still like to be able to suspend this computer when not using it, however.
