Don’t get scared if you see something like this, cause i found a solution for it. I tried to search the whole internet for its solution, finally i figure it out. Here are the steps for troubleshooting:

  • Open Home folder, from view option click on “Show hidden files”.
  • Now you will see a folder name .wine
  • Rename the folder as .wine old
  • Doing this will force wine to create a new prefix again.
  • Now, go to the mt4 installed directory & run the uninstaller.exe to uninstall it.
  • Delete the files mt4 files from the directory & desktop shortcut.
  • Now, finally reinstall the mt4 again & run it.

Another thought, if you don’t want to run the uninstaller, then go to the installed directory & run “terminal.exe“. You will see that your mt4 is running again, without any errors!  For the desktop short, you can delete it & create a shortcut of terminal.exe on the desktop.
