What works

Most of the application works fine. Images can be opened and saved (but only when doing a normal save, not Save As...).

What does not

The "Options..." button in the save dialog boxes is disabled, apparently due to commdlg not having the necessary functions for it. I get the following:

fixme:commdlg:GetFileName95 Flags 0x00810000 not yet implemented
fixme:commdlg:FILEDLG95_HandleCustomDialogMessages message CDM_FIRST+0006 not implemented

In addition, the floating dialogs (for tool properties, layer properties, histogram, and overview) will disappear when the main application is chosen, while the real version of the program does not do this.

Save As..., does not save, in fact it destroys the file given if it exists. Same for Save Copy As...

The curves window is not being updated properly, resulting in the curve duplicating itself from it's previous position. (It only updates after the window is switched from the background to the foreground)

Trying to edit anything in histogram (from Colors -> Histogram Functions -> Histogram Adjustment) results in it saying "This is not a valid number" and refusing to let you leave the window.


What was not tested

Importing from a source.

Additional Comments

Attempting to correct the Save As dialog problem by using a real copy of commdlg or comdlg32 results in Paint Shop Pro 7 crashing.

Wacom tablets

2013-05-03 Admin note: the information below was posted in a user comment in 2006, and may not be applicable to current systems. It is being left here for the benefit of anyone who might wish to test and/or update it.

Ok - the problem isn't with PSP or wine, the problem is with the xorg.conf file. There's a configuration in there for Wacom drawing tablets, which is what's causing the "input device not found" error. (the "err:region:CombineRgn Invalid rgn=(nil)" message can be ignored.)

To fix in ubuntu:

in a terminal, type

sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

(don't just click on the text editor and open from the GUI, as you'll only have read-only rights to the file.)

Once inside the file, put a '#' in front of the following:

InputDevice "stylus" "SendCoreEvents"
InputDevice "cursor" "SendCoreEvents"
InputDevice "eraser" "SendCoreEvents"

Then do the same thing with the following entries:


Section "InputDevice"

# /dev/input/event
# for USB
Identifier "stylus"
Driver "wacom"
Option "Device" "/dev/wacom" # Change to
Option "Type" "stylus"
Option "ForceDevice" "ISDV4" # Tablet PC ONLY

Section "InputDevice"

# /dev/input/event
# for USB
Identifier "eraser"
Driver "wacom"
Option "Device" "/dev/wacom" # Change to
Option "Type" "eraser"
Option "ForceDevice" "ISDV4" # Tablet PC ONLY

Section "InputDevice"

# /dev/input/event
# for USB
Identifier "cursor"
Driver "wacom"
Option "Device" "/dev/wacom" # Change to
Option "Type" "cursor"
Option "ForceDevice" "ISDV4" # Tablet PC ONLY
