Removing prefixes causes them to linger

Post by roflcopter6213 » Fri Jul 19, 2019 12:56 am

Hey, so I'm a bit (read: a lot) of a newbie here, and I was wondering if I could get some help with a problem I've been having recently.

Whenever I try to delete a prefix, it lingers in the change prefix list and I can't seem to be able to outright get rid of it.

I'm probably just being stupid and this is an intended feature or something but I'd appreciate a bit of light shed on this.

Is it? If I open Wine (not WineBottler) and click it on the top bar, I get this

That third option brings up the menu from the original post

That is still Winebottler, Winebottler comes with it's own custom wine.app

The Winehq releases are labeled differently;
  • Wine Stable
    Wine Devel
    Wine Staging
The Winehq releases don't have a gui interface but instead use Terminal when directly launched.

Got it, thanks. Last question, are there any other sites or resources I should be asking instead?

Winebottler doesn’t have any support site.
