Full ACK, however, since desktop files could be picky regarding
executed commands, I execute a script for an app running under wine, so
if needed, it's easy to edit the script, instead of experimenting with
"Exec" of a desktop file.

I don't use backslashes.


$ cat /usr/share/applications/gr-55_floorboard_wine.desktop 
[Desktop Entry]
Name=GR-55 FloorBoard Wine
Exec=gr-55_floorboard_wine
Icon=/opt/gr-55_floorboard/images/windowicon.png
Categories=Audio;AudioVideo;Midi;X-Alsa;X-Jack;Qt;
Terminal=false
Type=Application
X-Window-Icon=/opt/gr-55_floorboard/images/windowicon.png


$ cat /usr/local/bin/gr-55_floorboard_wine 
#!/bin/dash
wine '/home/rocketmouse/.wine/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/GR-55FloorBoard/GR-55FloorBoard.exe' &
exit
