How can I run an application from the command line?
If you don't use a desktop (KDE or Gnome), you have installed an application that does not show up on your desktop's menu, or you wish to start your application from the command line you can use one of the methods below.
The easiest way to run a Wine command line is via the 'cxrun' utility. It should be available in your CrossOver menu with the name "Run a Windows command" or you can run it from the command-line, like this:

We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
