Bug Description

License: GPL
URL: http://www.wine-doors.org/

Wine-doors is an application designed to make installing windows software on Linux, Solaris or other Unix systems easier. Wine-doors is essentially a package management tool for windows software on Linux systems.

Wine-doors uses the familiar style of the linux package management for application delivery to install windows software.

Wine-doors is developed and styled to fit in with the GNOME desktop but is fairly portable and a user interface could be developed for KDE. As a GNOME application Wine-doors employs pygtk, glade and cairo to represent itself to the user, we also endeavour to follow the tango style guidelines for application icon artwork.

Aside from this the main goals of wine-doors are as follows;

    * Replace winetools
    * Allow flexible application management
    * Provide Queue processing capability
    * Provide Application Database integration
    * Avoid global native overrides
    * Automatically add items to the desktop menus
    * Allow users to manage their windows applications with profiles and bottles
