I am pretty new to PlayOnLInux, and honestly I am not well versed in Wine even, but I've played around with various virtual machine technologies in the past. I've been using Arch Linux for a number of years, and it is my main OS at home. I try to avoid booting into Windows when I can, so I wanted to download an app from the Windows Store and try it under POL/Wine. I cannot, it turns out, for all the wrong reasons, but that's not why I'm here.

To make a long story short, I thought, "Hey, why not try Edge under POL." Well, that did not work so well. It would not even install. I was ready to drop it, when I thought that I could just try it under Wine. Well, to my surprise, it did work under Wine! So, whatever is going on must be in the POL environment.

I tried googling the error, and I got all sorts of odd hits. I don't understand this log output:

What I really don't understand is why is it looking for in my home directory? I can clearly see the file is in /usr/lib/wine/x86_64-unix, which is probably why it works under Wine.

Also, I just figured out that  I can switch the Wine version to use the system Wine in the configuration, and it will work ... not, but at least it gets farther along.

wine --version

So, is it the location? Is it the version? Inquiring minds want to know. :) In any event, this is interesting that Edge will apparently work at all like this (although there is a dev version that will work under Linux as well, so it really depends upon what you are trying to do).



If it matters, uname output: Linux u-love 5.12.11-arch1-1 #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed, 16 Jun 2021 15:25:28 +0000 x86_64 GNU/Linux
