I want to use wine without Gecko, as I only want to run simple applications, no HTML stuff at all. Is there a way to skip the gecko check when configuring a (new) Wineprefix?

You can override mshtml to prevent wine from installing gecko.

WINEDLLOVERRIDES=mshtml=d wine somewineapp

To prevent both mono and gecko:

WINEDLLOVERRIDES=mscoree=d;mshtml=d wine somewineapp

And to keep all other possibly existing WINEDLLOVERRIDES:

WINEDLLOVERRIDES=mscoree=d;mshtml=d;$WINEDLLOVERRIDES wine somewineapp
