Additional Comments

Originally, the installer ran, but the application would not display, and gave no error. The key was to 'export WINEPREFIX=~/.wine/kindle'. This gives it a fresh new wine area to install to. I notice that the launcher icons preserve this setting, so you won't have to worry about it again (they prepend a 'env WINEPREFIX=blah', so that this piece of environment is always set). I saw a lot of advice recommending to remove the .wine directory to start fresh, but it's not necessary, and I have a good number of wine apps that I didn't want to reinstall.
