I didn't know exactly when the problem occurred. My Wine worked well a couple days ago.
Then, I was just about to install some Windows programs hours ago but I got nothing.
No installer window showed up, and no error report. It just won't work.
And now I just found where the problem is (screenshot below), but I don't know how to fix it.
Any idea? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Wine configuration


  • Wine 1.4
  • Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

I tried:

  • Autoremove in Terminal
  • Delete the software configuration

By "delete the software configuration", do you mean that you deleted Wine's config directory? (~/.wine) – SirCharlo Jun 22 '12 at 15:35
Yes. By that, I was wanting to install a new clean Wine with a new configuration. I also cleared the apt cache, so when I try to re-install Wine, the apt was downloading a new fresh package from the server. – Drie Jun 22 '12 at 15:58

I found out that the problem is just a several bugs, and have been fixed with the latest wine update. No more responds are necessary, and thank you very much.
