[pkg-wine-party] Bug#793879: Bug#793879: wine: Failed to connect to the mount manager
control: severity -1 normal
wine works fine for lots of users for lots of applications. Therefore
downgrading the severity.
Like Austin I have the strong feeling that you are working with a broken
wineprefix. Did you install a 64-bit application? This would have been
in ~/.wine64, not ~/.wine.
If installing the windows app in a new wineprefix doesn't help, you may
try the wine-development package instead of wine. It has a much newer
wine version (but you still have to install your windows app new!). If
you want to use the wine-development package, you have to use the
command "wine-development" instead of "wine".
Please report back.
