What works

For me it's the first time that I was able to install a version of WinMerge with Wine. I run the WinMerge installer with wine, there was no .wine folder. The installer worked flawlessly. Winmerge then started without problems and I was able to check the differences between two files from my Ubuntu home folder without problems. There were no graphical clitches and other obvious problems. Copying text to the clipboard via Ctrl-C leads to a popup of a message: "Failed to load lilbrary! Continue anyway?". By pressing ok one can resume and the text is also available in the clipboard. In the terminal the messages "err:module:import_dll Library MSVBVM60.DLL not found" are shown. But this is no showstopper.

What does not

No problems so far.
