I installed wine, but the best I get is a blank screen for wine notepad.No other application opens Wine itself does not start. It just shows an icon in the dock but no window opens. I initially installed using a binary, but seeing this problem, I uninstalled it and reinstalled using apt-get. However, after reinstallation, nothing changed. The problem remained. Any help will be much appreciated.
