I have the same problem. It is a problem with recognize FreeType fonts when WinePrefix is created via PlayOnLinux Wine versions. If I created Prefix with select "System" version everything is OK, but if I download version from Wine Version Manager - windows are very small and nothing works at all...

OK. So I found a quick "workaround".

Go to:


Remove all library files in every version of installed Wine and it should work...

But... I know - it is annoying - POL Team should find fix for this issue. :)

Hello there, 

I am having difficulties with using 

cd /home/<YOUR_USER>/.PlayOnLinux/wine/linux-x86/<VERSION>/lib

Whenever I look into my directory it states that the 

wine version that I am using in PlayOnLinux is version 2.6, so this is what I have been 

putting. I have tried different ways to put it, but it keeps telling me that there is no such

file or directory. If you could help me out with this that would be great. Thanks in advance! 

cd /home/bre/.PlayOnLinux/wine/linux-x86/wine-2.6/lib

cd /home/bre/.PlayOnLinux/wine/linux-x86/2.6/lib

Forgive my slowness.....I'm new to understanding arch linux and opening files and such. I feel so silly....Ha, I found out how to remove them though. Thanks!
