Wine Files Are Linked to Real Desktop

Post by MisterLayne » Thu Aug 01, 2019 11:50 am

I set up a new x64 wine prefix, but for some reason, this one is linked to my actual desktop- whenever I put something on the desktop in my wine's c drive, it appears on my desktop. What can I do to fix this..?

Code: Select all

winetricks isolate_home
is a verb I added to winetricks, that will remove all the symbolic links from a WINEPREFIX to your Linux user's HOME directory.
This includes not linking the current WINEPREFIX, to your Linux user's Desktop directory.
