Strange wine launch command

Postby dendron on Sun Mar 22, 2009 5:57 pm

Hi, I'm using the XFCE edition of Mint. I found out that launch command for windows applications in Thunar is strange:
Code: Select all
wine start /unix %f

This causes applications to work slow and those options are not even described in the man page.

Changing it to
Code: Select all
wine %f
fixes the problem.

I didn't have this bug (?) under Xubuntu 8.10, so it must be related to Mint.

Mint developers, please fix it in future releases.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

The wine package comes from Ubuntu, so there is no way that we created this bug.
