Desktop files created by Wine, wrong path with each new version

Post by nammidd » Mon Mar 16, 2020 8:43 am

With each new version of wine, wine desktop files (shortcuts) are no longer relevant since they are pointing to "/usr/lib/wine-staging-5.4/bin/wine", how to make them created with a path pointing to "/usr/bin/wine"?

@nammidd

Without further info... This is probably: Bug 652176 - app-emulation/wine-staging shortcuts point to new flavor+version rather than /usr/bin/wine.
