I have just installed GoldWave under WINE, and it works (apart from the Help file crashing, which is a known problem, apparently).

I can start it by using the command line, but would like to have it available via a desktop shortcut.

Is this possible ?

Assuming you are using Vector Linux 5.9 Gold, you can create a launcher by...

Right clicking on any of the icons already on the desktop---> Choose 'Desktop' from that menu----->
Then 'Create launcher from the next menu'

In the GUI that pops up enter the following....

     Name:   GoldWave
Comment:       GoldWave
Command:  env WINEPREFIX="/home/ken/.wine" wine "C:\Program Files\GoldWave\GoldWave.exe"

You can then choose the icon of your choice and save.
