I've noticed that currently executing wine on any 32-bit package (or
running wine32 - it's the same, since wine falls back to wine32) without
setting the WINEPREFIX variable results in using $home/wine32 as default
prefix, as determined by the line:
test -z $WINEPREFIX && export WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.wine32
This is in contrast with what the documentation says (and with the
If set, the contents of this variable is taken as the
name of the directory
where Wine stores its data (the default is $HOME/.wine).
I also find that using separate prefixes for 32 and 64 bit wine is not
convenient, because you need to keep any program you use in both
prefixes installed twice, update it in both profiles, update all
symlinks to windows drives (D:,...) twice and so on, which can IMO
easily lead to confusion.
Since 32 bit applications can run flawlessly from a 64 bit profile, I
would suggest to simply remove that line from /usr/bin/wine32, and
rather let those who want to keep profiles separated do that on their
own, since this is the default upstream behaviour.
