Winetricks 32/64 error

Post by d107 » Sun Aug 16, 2020 12:40 am

The infamous Winetricks issue running both architectures. I've searched many articles on this and am stumped. I'd like to keep each Wine version, for compatibility with different apps and games including alot of stuff in Lutris and PoL that work fine.

Winetricks worked fine with Wine3. All this started when I installed Wine 5.

Any tips are appreciated...

Code: Select all

d107@Limon:~/.wine$ wine --version
wine-5.0.2
d107@Limon:~/.wine$ winetricks
------------------------------------------------------
wine cmd.exe /c echo '%ProgramFiles%' returned empty string, error message "wine: '/home/d107/.wine' is a 64-bit installation, it cannot be used with a 32-bit wineserver."

You somehow have a mix of winehq and Ubuntu packages installed; you can uninstall the Ubuntu ones if that isn't intentional. It's possible to do that but if you don't need to it just confuses things. Bigger problem is you're missing the wine-stable-amd64 package which is most likely why that wineprefix isn't working. edit: I see now you have the 32-bit wine-stable installed, doing a 'apt install wine-stable:amd64' should fix that.

Thank you spoon0042!

sudo apt install wine-stable:amd64
... seems to have, mostly, fixed it.

I still get a warning, though when I OK on it, I'm launched into the usual Winetricks UI. I'm assuming that this is ok to ignore.

d107@Limon:~$ winetricks

You are using a 64-bit WINEPREFIX. Note that many verbs only install 32-bit versions of packages. If you encounter problems, please retest in a clean 32-bit WINEPREFIX before reporting a bug.

Yeah that's just a warning, if things are working don't worry about it. If something isn't working though you may want to try with a 32-bit prefix is all.
