winecfg returns a bunch of error messages

Post by bermuda » Sun Oct 07, 2018 3:55 pm

Hi guys,

I'm a noob so please be gentle :p I'm running Ubuntu 18.04 and I've tried to install wine. When trying to configure win, I have the following errors messages after typing 'winecfg'.

Code: Select all

drstrange@timestone:/$ winecfg
wine: created the configuration directory '/home/drstrange/.wine'

wine: configuration in '/home/drstrange/.wine' has been updated.
It does however open a GUI where I can specified the version of windows like it should.

Then if I type wine + the name of an exe, it seems like it does install but then it just crashes with errors messages.
I've also tried to uninstall wine to begin again on a clean sheet but i'm pretty clueless and I've got a message telling me wine is a virtual package. Is there any way I can fix this ? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Those messages on first start are to be expected and can be ignored.

What crashes to you get? Please provide the error message and the a complete log, including crashlog.

FWIW, your configuration is stored in a WINEPREFIX, usually .wine - if you delete this folder (removing everything that you installed in there), it should be as clean as it gets.
