Summary: lack of a Start Menu folder or symlink in
drive_c/windows/profiles/(user) causes program menu
icons to not be directed to the xorg menu
AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
ReportedBy: Speeddymon at gmail.com
WinRAR installer, clean .wine with default setup, having only run wineprefixcreate.
Install WinRAR, and tell the installer to create Start Menu and Programs icons.
The icons do not show in the menu even after wineboot and reboot. look in
drive_c/Program Files/WinRAR and there is another folder named WinRAR in there
that has the icons, both the .lnk and .desktop files.
Now go back to that default install I mentioned before, and this time create a
Start Menu folder in drive_c/windows/profiles/(user)
Install WinRAR again and tell the installer to create the Start Menu and
Programs icons again.
Look in your menu and the .desktop icons are there.
Now do the same steps as before but this time, make a symlink called Start Menu
instead of a folder. The symlink should point to ~/.local/share/applications/wine
This time when install is finished, and you have run wineboot and rebooted, the
.desktop and .lnk icons will be there.
