LightWave is a 3D modeling, animation and rendering package. Its main difference with the other big ones in 3d packages is its separation between a modeling environment and an animation/rendering one.

What works

Install works fine, installation of Sentinel drivers hangs at the end but this doesnt impede the completion of the install, and the license is recognized properly.
Launching modeler from layout through the hub works perfectly (you just have to launch modeler AND layout on their own at least once, just like on windows..)
Most plugins tested work perfectly (e.g. fprime) both in modeler and in layout.
Textures, clip masks, animations, rendering etc work perfectly.
Opening/Saving files, scenes, images works perfectly too.

What does not

With Compiz activated, menus appear as separate windows in the center of the screen, while submenus appear at their correct location. Disabling windows manager control from winecfg solves the issue

window does not refresh exactly when it should but only at the very next action (e.g. when switching from one view to another, the view refreshes only after you do something more)

minor opengl glitches that disappear when refreshed.

panels and subwindows do not stay on top, and if you click on the main window by chance they disappear behind it.
