Wine-Doors is not supported here.

Moreover, when I now select "Open with other Application" from the context menu for a Windows app, Wine is not in the list. The Uninstaller isn't working either: when I select "Uninstall Wine Software", I get an error window saying "Could not launch menu item - failed to execute child process "uninstaller" (No such file or directory)".
Wine doesn't provide those links, Ubuntu does.

No...that's the browser for KDE.

Try it in a terminal, e.g., 'wine notepad'. Does that work? Try
removing ~/.wine if not.
