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.
