Wine Server Launches infinite times when clicking on links

Post by Snorghma » Mon Jul 01, 2019 7:35 pm

Every time I click on a hyperlink in Slack or discord or any other electron based app, wine server tries to open it over and over ad infinitum until I kill it. This is a real problem for me as I just changed my password in slack for one of my workspaces and the Sign In button is apparently a hyperlink that wine tries to open rather than letting slack open it (preventing me from logging into Slack while keeping Wine installed).

Code: Select all

brad@rhyme:~/.cache/kioexec/krun$ wine --version
wine-4.0.1
brad@rhyme:~/.cache/kioexec/krun$ cat /etc/os-release

Is there a setting I need to set to get Wine to chill out?

Has anyone run into this issue? Should I just remove wine from my system? I'd prefer not to do that. I have several application setup already.

Seems like you have a misconfigured desktop environment. Did you try setting your default browser already?
