I've had this problem once before, but I completely forgot how I fixed it.

Every wine executable (/usr/bin/wine, or the wines in the playonlinux dir) "do not exist" when I try to execute them.

$ wine
bash: /usr/bin/wine: Bestand of map bestaat niet

Knackered path? Wang echo "$PATH" into a terminal and see what it says. I expect something along the lines of:


The repo-installed wine lives in /usr/bin so if that segment of the path is missing, it's going to break things. That said, I'd expect that to break a whole lot more at the same time too. Perhaps the issue is so local because there's something squiffy in your ~/.bashrc
