How do I run an application using the command line?

Use the command line to launch an application if you don't have a common desktop environment (e.g., KDE or Gnome) installed or an application isn't listed in your desktop menu.

Launch a Windows executable (e.g., appname.exe) installed in your default bottle as follows:

$ ~/cxoffice/bin/wine --cx-app appname.exe


$ /opt/cxoffice/bin/wine --cx-app appname.exe

If you do not have a default bottle set, specify the bottle (e.g., bottlename) when launching the application as follows:

$ ~/cxoffice/bin/wine --bottle bottlename --cx-app appname.exe


$ /opt/cxoffice/bin/wine --bottle bottlename --cx-app appname.exe
