How you delete prefix on Mac air

Post by Killerbee8991 » Mon Oct 12, 2020 12:15 am

Who do I delete unnecessary prefix, I’m kinda sure there causing my system to open console showing errors, and I don’t use them. Much help would be appreciated.

What errors?, I’ll say on Mojave I see errors when running “wine” but not “wine64” due to some weirdness when apple build the 32Bit libraries as these don’t appear on lower macOS versions

The default prefix is a hidden directory within your users home directory .wine

It’s better to provide some terminal output showing the errors.

Also don’t randomly installing winetricks verbs this of course can cause issues.

It’s always best to have a separate wineprefix for each application/game especially if they require any winetricks verbs to be installed to function
