(Solved) wine 9.55 problems

I installed wine 9.55 from the repo and when I click on the wine config in the menu a grey box pops up but nothing else. Also, none of the wine programs work.

suggestions?

Thanks

also, I tried removing it and reinstalling it. That didn't help, I click on wine config and I get a grey box, with no rendered text, I can move around on it but it is not functional.

Any ideas? I think it may be because I installed wine doors. it was not in the repo and I got it from rpm.pbone.net

Is there a way to completely eradicate it and try reinstalling it. It appears that the add\remove programs is only paying lipservice and possibly not truly removing everything.

rpm -e --noscripts packagename.rpm

should do the trick. I also believe you may have found your problem. As a side note wine config works fine here even with compiz-fusion on.

Have you tried renaming your ~/.wine directory to something else and trying it with a fresh configuration?

That might work. Especially since TechDragon mentioned in another thread he had tried something called "wine-doors", not something I'm really familiar with, but it sounds like one of those scripts/apps that will overwrite your wine configuration files.

Also have you tried this from the CLI? If so, what was the output?
Code:
winecfg
Make sure you are running this as a regular user, not root.

renaming the file and then running winecfg from a terminal resolved my problem.

Thank you

Then something else you setup, or tried to setup, borked your wine settings. Running winecfg with no settings at all causes the default configuration to be recreated.
