I don't know why, but I'm not being able to open *.ini text files. Every time I double click on them a working icon appears next to the pointer and then nothing happens.

The last major change I did in the system was installing Wine and Lutris. I did upgrade to Disco Dingo from Cosmic Cuttlefish a couple of days ago, but I was already having this problem before the update.

This is the result I get in the terminal when I try to open the file acting as super user in Thunar:

camilo@camilo-S400CA:~$ sudo thunar
[sudo] password for camilo: 
env: ‘/home/ubuntu/buildbot/runners/wine/tkg-3.20-x86_64/bin/wine’: No such file or directory

Any help would be much appreciated.

    did you try right click > open with option? – Sirajus Salekin Apr 22 '19 at 7:22

You could right-click on an .ini file, select properties then open with and choose Text Editor, Set as default.

Already solved it. It was a problem with wine and notepad (windows text editor). Somehow, afterinstalling wine or mono, or both, the default text editor for *ini files changed automatically to notepad. Thanks to everyone who answered
