Curious: Wine configuration on q4os 2.7.3-n1 [SOLVED]

I have several q4os Systems running and on one of them I can start Windows exe files without using Wine explicitely. I can start an exe from the bash command prompt by ./Blackbox.exe although double clicking the exe in Konqueror does not work. As far as I remember, I did not configure anything special, it worked out of the box after using the setup_xpq4*.esh script, but on the other systems I have to use wine to start the program.

Any ideas why and what steps are necessary that a system recognizes PE32 file as executables (beside setting the executable bit) and uses wine automagically as program loader?

Maybe, the answer is found in the second answer by daisy in https://unix.stackexchange.com/question … e-programs which refers to the binfmt filesystem (I had never heaard of it, but it looks very interesting). The respective Debian package has the name wine-binfmt and after installing this package, the first of the other two systems works also.

There is a tutorial about binfmt here: https://ownyourbits.com/2018/06/13/tran … nfmt_misc/ and some hints at: https://www.linux.com/news/how-launch-w … x-directly apparently the kernel documentation binfmt_misc.txt can now only be found only at https://lwn.net/Articles/679310/ or a html version at https://www.kernel.org/doc/html/latest/ … -misc.html
