Irfanview in Wine cannot open graphics files

Post by ineuw » Mon Nov 25, 2019 7:53 pm

Installed WineHQ in Linux Mint 19.2 in a dual boot desktop (Windows 10). Then, installed Irfanview from snap, but on opening a graphics file with Irfanview, the message says that does not recognize the header. This applies to either .jpg and .png.
The images are stored in a NTSF drive mounted by fstab, and they are read and write. Copied them to the local Linux Pictures folder, but the problem is the same. Other graphic apps in Linux have no problem opening these files wherever they are stored.
Also, the /media folders are invisible to the Wine File Explorer. Is it because admin rights? Essentially, I don't yet know what I am doing.

I can't reproduce this problem in a clean Wineprefix with Wine 4.20 on Debian Sid.
Could you post a terminal output?

Thanks for the reply. I am not sure what you mean. Are you referring to the Linux terminal? Because I activate it from the Graphics menu.
