Wine Staging 6.5 fails to load programs. fails to run.

Post by UrienRaven » Sat Apr 10, 2021 11:49 am

I use Ubuntu 20.04 and used wine staging from version 6.0 to 6.4 with no problems, but since update 6.5 all programs fail to load, the icon spins for a while and then nothing, I changed to wine stable the programs run but some of games have black screen thanks to my Nvidia driver no doubt, tried to install staging with command:

sudo apt install wine-staging

instead of:

sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-staging

Programs do run again but... same black screen problems for some games as on wine stable.

So its problem with some recommended addons, is there way to install wine staging 6.4? Cant just change to never Nvidia driver cause it cause problems with Steam Proton games.

That's https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=50867. It's fixed in 6.6.
