Cannot run Wine on Wayland

If I try to run any application on wine in wayland (I’m using Hyprland) it will not run.

Even just wine regedit (which is required to test native wayland wine) doesn’t work.

$ wine regedit
002c:fixme:winediag:loader_init wine-staging 8.21 is a testing version containing experimental patches.
002c:fixme:winediag:loader_init Please mention your exact version when filing bug reports on

$ wine --version
wine-8.21 (Staging)

Launching proton games through steam works completely fine however.

I don’t think it’s Wayland related.
Is this new wineprefix or old one that you’ve updated to 8.21?

I am on a fresh install, it’s only maybe about a week old, this is the first version of wine i installed on this setup.

Weird. Try another version of wine, perhaps 9.0 that was just out…

installed wine-staging 9 from git via aur, it just works:tm:
