What works

IDA installs and starts perfectly. Disassembly works, saving and reloading files works.

What does not

The context menus that display code or data at the target address when you hover your mouse over a subroutine or data reference do not work. The yellow drop-down overlay is displayed, but is empty.

The main window cannot be minimized; if it is, it cannot be restored. It is possible to right-click on the application in your taskbar and close it; IDA will offer to save your work and exit cleanly.

Debugging an application is *extremely* slow.


What was not tested

Anything other than basic functionality. In particular, plugins were not tested.

HowTo / Notes

Text is cut off/garbled in the disassembly view

Use winetricks work around the font display problem:

$ wget


$ bash winetricks corefonts
Keyboard layout error: Failed to get the scan code

If you get a message box on startup, stating:

­­"Keyboard layout error: Failed to get the scan code of '~' (VkKeySca­n failure)"

Either check the box "don't display that message again" or go to the following directory:

­$ cd /home/.wine/c_drive/Program Files/IDA/cfg

Then open the file "idagui.cfg" with a text editor, and locate the line containing the following:

"BitwiseNegate" = '~'

and comment it out:

//"BitwiseNegate" = '~'

save and restart.
