This package is not officially supported by the Bottles Developers. Even though some of those developers are package maintainers, support is offered by the package authors who will make sure it is handled in the best possible way. They will diagnose the issues and report the issues to the development team if they are not related to the package.

According to the docs bottles is not supposed to link to the home directory anymore.

Could you fix that? I don't know how you can disable this. I want my bottles to be pretty much isolated from the rest of my system, which is why I already removed the Z: drive from all of them, and yet this is still happening.

On flatpak, it is dealt with by completely ignoring it and relying on it's sandboxing.

Edit: Also one more thing: Bottles depends on wine, but in my opinion it really shouldn't. You can download various runners at any time, so why would wine be forced?

If someone is having errors with no module named 'X' you need to REBUILD package related to this needed library. AUR helpers like yay tries to use cache when reinstall as default option, but you are asked if you want to rebuild the package, so do it.

@jeancf I was having the same issue you were, with an error failing to locate "window.ui". from the project mentions an issue with python-argparse. After uninstalling it the build ran correctly.

Bottles does not start after today's last updates of some python libraries.

@dreieck you need to rebuild the AUR python packages after a major python update, see also

@costor you need to install them from the AUR and rebuild when there is a major python update

I needed to run the following or else Bottles wouldn't start: pip install patool fvs vkbasalt-cli
