Stickies on Ubuntu

It seems that Wine is an excellent tool to run Windows application on Ubuntu. Recently I had to use Stickies and tried it on Ubuntu. So first I had to install Ubuntu. I executed the following commands to install Wine on Ubuntu 7.04 Fiesty.

sudo wget -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/winehq.list

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install wine

For other platforms you can have a look at Then you have to simply download the stickies.exe and then execute

wine {PATH-TO-STICKIES}/stickies.exe

But hold on the installation is not done, you need get the following the installation steps mentioned in

scroll down to Install Note and follow that. The only change will be installing the MSI file, instead of the one mentioned there use the following to install the MSI file

wine msiexec /i/{PATH-TO-MSI}MSISetup.MSI

Now try to execute

wine /.wine/{PATH-TO-STICKIES-INSTALLATION}/stickies.exe

It might say that MFC42.dll is missing, if it says so please get it from a Windows installation and copy it to /.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/ and try to execute it again.

Hopefully that will be enough for Stickies Installation :).
Now to get the Stickies running you can execute the following command:

sudo wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/stickies/stickies.exe > {PATH-TO-LOG}
2>&1 &

Though this is for Ubuntu but I guess excepting the installation procedure rest should be same across Linux platform. Let me know if any further changes were required.
