What works

It looks to be running fine. It needs the mfc40 libraries for the installation and to fix the etsans2.fon after the installation. Than it looks to running without lag or other problems. I created a graph and from I can tell with the fixed fonts it looks ok...

What does not

I can't be sure because I don't use the program and I don't have any intention to learn it. I just installed it for someone else, I saw the problem with the fonts and I fixed it (I think.... :)  )


What was not tested

I installed it, I fixed the fonts, I created a chart, I pressed some random icons from the toolbar and thats it....

Additional Comments

I could give the Gold rating but I don't know what this program really do so I decided to give Silver rating... Installation Instructions: The installation works fine with wine 64bit and with wine 32bit. I checked with Linux Mint 14 64bit and with Linux Mint 32bit. 1) Install the mfc40.dll with winetricks. An easy way is to run Wintricks → Select the default wineprefix → Install a Windows DLL or component → mfc40 2) Install Solar Fire. To do this without the terminal you can run Uninstall Wine Software → Install... → and select the installation program. 3) After the installation you must fix the font etsans2.fon. You can found it at drive_c/windows/Fonts folder under the .wine folder. An easy way to go there is to select “Browse C: Drive”. Otherwise you must set you file manager to view hidden files and go to your Home folder and find the .wine folder. The easier way to do this is to download the fixed font from the bug 8177. I have uploaded there and I am telling what I did to fix it. But you can fix it yourselves if you wish. To do that you must: a) Download and install the free font editor FontForge. Right now I am using the Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon edition and I found the FontForge from software manager. The official site is the Ubuntu/Linux Mint users can write at the terminal the command sudo apt-get install fontforge b) Run FontForge and load the font etsans2.fon. As I said you can find the font at the /windows/Fonts folder under the .wine folder. c) From FontForge select Encoding -> Force Encoding -> Windows Latin ("ANSI") d) Save the font with the same name (File -> Save). Thats it. You can now run the program, patch it or do what ever you want. I think the patch don't change the font at the windows fonts folder. But if it does you know what to do... Enjoy!
