Hello, I keep getting this message when I start up POL;


PlayOnLinux cannot find wine (from Wine)

You should install it to use PlayOnLinux


I can play Skyrim just fine and if I go to my manage wine versions 1.7.11 is installed. So why do I keep getting this message and how do I make it go away? Last time I used POL on my other computer I never got this message. I am also running the latest POL 4.2.5.

You must not have Wine installed on your actuall system. You should have Wine installed via your distros' package manager. POL versions of Wine are separate from the system Wine, but the system one should still be installed.
