On my wife's laptop I just installed Wine from Synaptic in LMDE. I installed Kyodai, without which I would have never gotten my wife away from Windows.
I chose the "go ahead and run it" option while installing Kyodai, and it runs fine. But nothing shows up in the XFCE menu to enable Kyodai to be run later. And what I really want is to be able to create a launcher that will launch Kyodai directly from the panel.
