Winetricks gone missing from my mint 15 install

Synaptic package manger and Mint software manger both swear up and down that my Wine tricks is installed...I've UN-installed it and re-installed it but it does not show up in my menu under wine as it use to do...or anywhere else I've looked...and I've looked plenty!

Can I bring it up with terminal or use terminal to make it appear in menu?

Thank you for your time and consideration....

A working Mint 14 is a lot different than a brand new Mint 15. Time for a backup me thinks!

PS all this after reading what users have to go through after installing mint 15!

So far, a missing wine tricks is about my only complaint... I have Mint 14 on another drive... Never leave mint without one...":O}

I had a thought...and all I can say is this is "almost" a first for me! LOL

You don't need it. Just make sure Wine is installed and then use PlayOnLinux.
I havn't use Winetricks since my tutorial.
PlayOnLinux does everything Winetricks can do and better.

if you "have" to use Winetricks (notice the quotes)... then you can just uninstall Wine and re-install again.

Something I learned from the POL forums is that PlayOnLinux only uses the first install of Wine and never touches it again.

Trust me...that was the first thing I tried...no Wine tricks on re-install.

But it comes up fine in Terminal... just a Mint 15 RC glitch I imagine..

ok, so if Winetricks launches via terminal, then you are just missing the menu item. You can create a new menu item by right clicking Menu, but the "command" is the hard part to figure out

I just realized that I could give you my winetricks specs in the menu.

Try this:

1. right click menu
2. click edit menu
3. select wine
4. click new item
5. Type: Application
6. Name: Winetricks
7. Command: winetricks
8. Comment: Install applications on Wine
9. Click OK

now you should be able to launch Winetricks from the menu

You got it all right...except Command. "Winetricks" didn't do it...so I tried "Winetricks gui"

Thanks Boo! ":O}

and that worked?
Mine doesn't use "gui" at all... that is very strange.

what command do you use to launch Winetricks in the Terminal?

cool, I'll have to try that.
By the way, has there been any improvements to Winetricks?
More game scripts added?
Anything to make me want to try it again?

Not that I can see. But I only looked at games I have...so you might take a look. Not to mention that they may have improved the games it does install.

nah, I havn't updated Wine since I installed Mint 14.
I don't use Wine by its-self at all, since PlayOnLinux can download and install any version of Wine...
