Wine program not showing in mintMenu [SOLVED]

Post by gibbs1984 »

I installed uTorrent through Wine and everything works fine but the only problem I've got is that it doesn't show in the mintMenu, I'm not sure how to add it, at the moment I have to keep clicking on the .exe in the C:/ drive to use it.

I tried uninstalling uTorrent and then downloading the .exe again but it doesn't even go to the setup menu, it just opens uTorrent, so I'm assuming uTorrent wasn't uninstalled correctly, can't figure out how to uninstall it again because when I go to the Uninstall Wine Software it doesn't show up in there.

If I can uninstall it and reinstall then I can choose the add icon to menu bit which I (for some reason) unticked the first time.

I'm using Linux Mint 7 Gnome by the way.

Go to /home/user name/.wine/drive_c/Program Files and see if uTorrent folder is there. If there is delete it.
Also add the Search For Files applet in your panel and type uTorrent. Delete everything that appears in the list.

Then make a fresh install of uTorrent.

PS: there are great torrent clients for Linux so I don`t really see a reason to install uTorrent through wine.

the torrent client Deluge is very much like utorrent infact it is one of my favourites on linux just like how utorrent is my favourite on windows :D

Hmm, thanks, never heard of Deluge before, looks exactly the same as uTorrent so I'm using that instead now.

Simple enough as usual :D

Thanks.
