I was able to fix this by deleting all desktop objects pointing to Wine notepad from ~/.local/share/applications/

I also sent complainments to the packagers. I don't understand why anyone would use wine programs if there are better native ones available.


Code: Select all
 find ./ -iname "wine-extension*\.desktop" | xargs -I {} -n 1 bash -c 'echo "Hidden=true" >> {}'

The command above followed by 'update-desktop-database' will disable all the wine associations in the desktop files. You can always go back and enable the one or two that may be worthwhile by removing "Hidden=true".

Oh, thanks. I'm going to do that if I run into problems again.


But another problem: I tried to install Winetricks but it wants to remove "wine:i386" and install "wine" instead. Are those just dummy packages or what? wine-bin:i386 is apparently not affected. (it contains the main Wine components, right?)
