Winetricks lists many non-free softwares

Komponente:License problems
Zugewiesen:nicht zugewiesen

Hi. Just run winetricks, select "install an app" or "install a game".

For example, in "Install an app":
· Microsoft Office 2003 Professional
· Microsoft Office 2007 Professional
· Safari

It would be nice if winetricks had licensing information for each app.

I upgraded to Trisquel 5.5 "Brigantia" some weeks ago. I can't open winetricks to check this. Can anyone check if winetricks still does it?

Yes, I can confirm this does happen in 5.5 I am attaching a screenshot. There are multiple obvious non-free programs in there.

I have looked at this package and I am recommending it for removal. This program is more like a script that just downloads and installs programs for wine. Most of the programs it helps you install are proprietary. A few that it helps you install that are free are already in our repos (e.g. VLC) so there is no reason anyone would really want to run it under wine. Even if they did for whatever reason they wouldn't need the help of this script.
