Wine programs appearing multiple times

Post by Deekin » Fri Sep 25, 2020 9:13 pm

I have the latest Winehq installed on Linux Mint 20. When I use the "open with" option to choose which program to open a file with, programs that are installed within Wine will be listed multiple times. Wordpad program is listed twice, Irfanview listed over 10 times. Why does this happen and is there a way to remove the extra ones listed?

Probably due to bug 25166.

Yes, it sounds like the same problem I am having, is there a way to fix this? I looked through the whole page on the link but no solution was provided.

You should be able to edit or delete those somewhere in your desktop environment, I would think. Alternatively just go about deleting some files, the bug report mentions ~/.local/share/applications/ which for me has a bunch of wine-created things. Or elsewhere, I'm not sure how all that works as I avoid file managers and the like. I may be weird like that. :)
