Re: How to fix mount manager error in winecfg (drives list missing)?

BTW, the reason why I'm stuck with 5.14 can be found here. And I didn't even cover all the issues with that application there.

Re: How to fix mount manager error in winecfg (drives list missing)?

That error message is harmless; wine is attempting to read info from the raw(?) unix device and failing. Maybe, but the point is it was never there before in any of the previous Wine versions I went through. Popped up only after the DLL mess. There still are bugs in Wine related to labels and seria...

Re: How to fix mount manager error in winecfg (drives list missing)?

Hm, can't edit previous post. OK. So I created new 32bit profile and as expected everything is alright at least in regard to the issue at hand. But that was just for testing purposes only. What I need is to understand what is happening and find a way to fix it, now and any other times it may be happ...

Re: How to fix mount manager error in winecfg (drives list missing)?

Ah, one of the so many quirks of Linux: how to type in parameters and arguments. Thank you for enlightening me. News: I've just found out about 6.0 RC1 and installed it. In Q4wine using the very same command line (done automatically) now there is error output: wine: configuration in L"/home/dragos/....

Re: How to fix mount manager error in winecfg (drives list missing)?

Back to 5.14 in order to restore usability with one of the daily application. Not much to see in the Drives tab of winecfg : Screenshot from 2020-12-07 01-47-56.png Usually I start winecfg from Q4wine (v1.3.12) for the 32bit prefix I'm using. In the Logging tab there's a command line showing how it'...

Re: Application behavior worse after Wine 5.14

Thank you for replying. Does Bugzilla require a separate registration than the one here? Because I've been through a real ordeal trying to register on this board due to my apparently "dangerous" usual username, and wouldn't want to repeat that experience again, ever. So to answer your question: no, ...

Re: How to change username?

Thank you for replying, and sorry for the delay - I was expecting an e-mail notification by default as most other forum boards do, didn't notice it was disabled. All those issues piled together were just too much at that time. It was merely a year ago or so when I registered on the Linux Mint forum ...

How to change username?

Seems like a stupid question, huh? Well, the stupid is not me. For over 15 years I have been using the very same username wherever I went. It's my trademark if you want. And it has absolutely nothing to do with bad/illegal stuff. One thing that so many people - and the now prevalent AI - miss is tha...

How to fix mount manager error in winecfg (drives list missing)?

A few things happened in a short time (including installing native libraries through Winetricks) and at some point winecfg started displaying an empty drive panel with an error. Tried reinstalling same Wine version (5.14) to no avail. Then I temporarily updated to current 5.22 and the drive list was...

Application behavior worse after Wine 5.14

This is only one of the many issues I've had with Wine in time. I'm using an application called POP Peeper v 4.5.3 for IMAP/POP3 e-mail in Linux Mint 19.2 Cinnamon (based on Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic). It is set to open messages by default in HTML mode (using ieframe). Until and including Wine 5.14 the op...
