Wine is pretty bad but what i did was select the minetest application with a right click & choose open with wine windows program loader. Iv'e tried many thing's in wine & they do not work

What's the point to run Minetest with Wine when there's already a Linux version ?

Eh. WINE 1.4 runs minetest just fine, thankfully. Still crashes like the native one (throwing mod deaths), but runs.
