Gecko Install pop up window


I installed a program through wine. It works, but…
It pops up a window that complains about a missing Gecko package and gives a choice to install that.
OK, i clicked on the Install button but at the and that crashes.
But the application starts and running well.

Interesting thing, next time the same situation happens.
I click on the Cancel button instead of the install.
And magic! It works!

So, my problem is, how can i get rid of the always appears Gecko Install pop up window?

You can also try installing wine-gecko package to see if that fixes the issue.

sudo pacman -Syu wine-gecko

Try running it with this enviroment variable:

WINEDLLOVERRIDES="mscoree=d;mshtml=d" program.exe

If it works, you can create a custom shell script or desktop file to launch it.

I installed the wine-gecko as you advised.
Now changed the situation. I got new pop up windows.

It turned out, if i install only the wine and winetricks then wine will install in proper way what is needed.
So, now there is no problem.
