Nope, doesn't work. I copied and pasted exactly as you instructed and they both failed. Of course, the ventrilo shortcut is no longer truncated as the command is shorter without wineprefix (The only reason the prefix was there in the first place is because it was a straight copy from the shortcut wine placed in the K menu). Your Wow.exe fails because it is not installed on the wine C: drive, it is installed on the wine G: drive, which is mapped to /games on the local file system. Like I said, the shortcuts work outside of the dock, including your ventrilo.exe example, and I don't think any amount of tweaking the command to do it this way or do it that way will solve the problem, save for the truncation issue, which is not really a problem. I saw a post earlier that had a link to a similar or same issue, but the link was broke.... - Apr 26 2008
This is how I have issue #2 set up. "/games" is mapped to "g:". Like I said, this works outside of the dock. I have also tried the wine "g:\{game}" method. I was thinking it was a permission issue and tried the "env WINEPREFIX=" that my ventrilo launcher uses but that failed also. I still think the wine issue (I've seen others complain about wine not working on this dock) is permission related. Such maybe that the dock runs programs under it's own ID, and said user ID doesn't have permission to my WINEPREFIX. - Apr 18 2008
I've got two issues, both involve launching wine apps Ventrilo and World of Warcraft.

Issue #1 - Ventrilo

Ksmoothdock truncates the command of the launcher (i.e. the launcher works until I try to launch it from the dock)

command: env WINEPREFIX="/home/Fred/.wine" wine "C:\Program Files\Ventrilo\Ventrilo.exe"

after the failed launch, the command is broken to the following and no longer works from within the menu folder.
env WINEPREFIX="/home/Fred/.wine" wine "C:\Program Files\Ventrilo\Ventr

Issue #2 - WoW

command: wine "/games/World of Warcraft/Wow.exe"

clicking this icon works from the menu folder, but not from the dock. - Apr 17 2008
