Hello friends from Playonlinux. I'm new here and I would like your support on a problem that is happening to me.
 I have here Linux Mint 19.2 XFCE that I recently installed. I had to migrate some Windows programs to mint with the help of Playonlinux. I am trying to install a software that uses Wine 1.7.50. The problem is that the Wine Mono / Gecko installer gets a white dot on the screen, as if the installer window has shrunk. I debugged and got a bug from a library called Freetype. I wanted to know how to solve this problem. Wine, which is installed by default (Last Stable) in Mint, works normally and windows appear.

I create a manual installation unit in PlayonLinux with the Wine 1.6.2 version for example, it says: "creating a virtual drive" and then that point in the middle of the installer, which would be the Wine Mono installer. I know it's him, because he appears on the taskbar as if it's minimized! I try to maximize it but there's no way.
The second image is the result of the debugging I did on Playonlinux, with this "FreeType" error.
 (Sorry, I was not able to send the images directly by the forum text, was not showing up. I put in image hosting sites.)

Can confirm for linux mint xfce 19.2 and 19.3 . Older wine versions does this, newer version works. (2.7 and older)

On this picture, one is wine and second is mono installer.

I tested winecfg on these versions:

1.6.2 - fail
4.0 - works
3.0 - works
2.0 - fail
2.22 - works
2.11 - works
2.6 - fail
2.8 - works
2.7 - fail
2.8 staging - works
2.7 staging - fail

Everything is x86 on amd64 system
