After installing El Capitan, I now get the following error in the console only when running from a shortcut. I even tried creating the shortcut again, and I get the same errors. However, when I launch my program from the PlayOnMac window, it works as expected.

Any suggestions on what might be causing the shortcut to not find freetype?

Have you tried to reinstall XQuartz?

I think I know where the problem comes from.

I think we have to fix PlayOnLinux and you'll have to regenerate the sortcuts :-/

doe sit means that with the current version of PlayonMac the shortcus will NOT work anyway and we should wait for the fix?

The missing library is libfreetype.6.dylib.  In Snow Leopard it was found in /usr/lib; it's gone in El Capitan.  

You can link it from X11.  You can't link to /usr/lib any more because of Apple's new "System Integrity Protection" (don't get me started.)  But you can link to /usr/local/lib.

/usr/local/lib:

libfreetype.6.dylib -> /opt/X11/lib/libfreetype.6.dylib
libfreetype.dylib -> libfreetype.6.dylib

After linking libfreetype as above I'm able to run WTL 2014 on El Capitan using POM 4.2.6 with no problems.

I have the same problem. Is it a good idea to update XQuartz?

I installed the latest XQuartz along with El Capitan, then ran Migration Assistant after that to install POM with WTL installed (from Mountain Lion).  

You will still have to link the libraries:

cd /usr/local/lib

sudo ln -s /opt/X11/lib/libfreetype.6.dylib libfreetype.6.dylib

sudo ln -s libfreetype.6.dylib libfreetype.dylib
