I SO miss being able to simply right-click on an exe and "Open with Winetricks Program Loader...". Now you have to wade through endless menus to point toward your source exe.

How can I go back to the old version of Winetricks??

You're complaining in the wrong place; winetricks is a separate project. Report issues with it at https://github.com/Winetricks/winetricks/issues.

What is a winetricks program loader? And what do you want to achieve? Just run an exe?

Grrr... I'm rage quitting Linux... Right now!! :shock:

Actually that's nothing to do with winetricks and is just a file association that's been introduced downstream...
Probably by a Linux distribution packager/developer.

If you need this feature... You can borrow the Arch wine package binformat association:
Code:
/usr/lib/binfmt.d/wine.conf

# Start Wine, with Windows executables
:DOSWin:M::MZ::/usr/bin/wine:


So you can add:
Code:
# Start winetricks, with Windows executables
:DOSWin:M::MZ::/usr/bin/winetricks:

if you also want an association, of .exe files, with winetricks...

I cannot see how that would be at all useful... But knock yourself out! 8)
