With v4.3.4 on Ubuntu 20.04, when I click on "Configure" button, NOTHING happens. The configuration window is not displayed and no error message.crying

Same version as mine except I use Zorin 15. Try reinstalling POL.

@carmar: I de-installed, I re-downloaded from the website an re-installed with no effects. I still can't get the configuration window to show!

Did you remove any files from the prior installation? You can do that either with the purge option in the terminal or the completely-remove option in Synaptic. You can also manually look for the leftover folders (in both root and home) and delete them.

That is all that comes to my mind.

 

PS - I didn't think this would work but I experimented with deleting my ~/.PlayOnLinux/configurations folder but it was re-created as soon as I clicked the Configure button. So, this was no help.

Hm, do you see any windows appearing in your windows manager list?

Hi this is a problem I encountered while getting POL to work on my new Debian 11 installation. I can't install games due to this.

Something broke the path of the WINEPREFIX ... it contains a double "/" after the .PlayOnLinux part - this makes the path invalid and POL doesn't find the wine installation any more.

In my logs it looks like this:

> WINEPREFIX
  /home/rela-tiv/.PlayOnLinux//wineprefix/GuildWars2

 

Sadly I haven't found a way to correct the path yet.
