After trying some of the strategies mentioned in this thread, all of which failed, I removed Wine from the system and then installed it again from the repositories. When I then attempted to launch applications that rely upon Wine, I received two messages from Winetricks. First, this one:
You are using a 64-bit WINEPREFIX. Note that many verbs only install 32-bit versions of packages. If you encounter problems, please retest in a clean 32-bit WINEPREFIX before reporting a bug.
Then, a few minutes later, this one:
wine cmd.exe /c echo ‘%AppData%’ returned unexpanded string ‘C:Program Files’ … this can be caused by a corrupt wineprefix (
wineboot -u may help), by an old wine, or by not owning /home/juleslevinson/.wine
At present, I do not understand either of them well enough to act in a way that will prove effective. If anyone can explain them to me, I would appreciate their doing so. Thank you.
