What works

most function works well. but you have to remove wine-gecko to prevent it from crashing with wine 1.3, which I will mention it on the later extra comment. the 'what does not work' is a result due to the turnoff of wine-gecko


document transfer works.

What does not

the notice board on the chatting windows will keep on showing connecting, and the chatting history won't work although they are normally logged in the computer because they need wine-gecko to work……

another problem is that if you live it behind other windows for too long time, the main body turn to be frozen, and not work any more, although you can even found the notice that some body is noticing you……,so you'd better place the main body and chatting windows on a blank desktop...


What was not tested

video chatting and audio chatting ,remote desktop

Additional Comments

before installment, winetricks msxml3 gdiplus riched20 riched30 ie6 vcrun6 vcrun2005sp1 flash (here ie6 and flash are not essential according to my practice:) I won't comment on the font, it's another problem, here if you merely using English it will work well. fluent installation, but a bit tricky to login to the QQintl, you MUST NOT leave the mouse indicator focusing on the blank for entering password. move your mouse to the soft-keyboard logo as soon as possible when the login window appears. then use the soft-keyboard to enter the pin and use "the 'ENTER' on the soft-keyboard" to finish your input in another word don't use your own keyboard. then move your mouse away as quickly as possible to other area and fill the other things. do remember to tick 'auto login':) ok after you login, it will crash very often if you are using wine1.3 with wine-gecko, according to the therapy is either you remove the wine-gecko or $cd .wine/drive_c/windows/system32/gecko/1.0.0 $mv wine_gecko wine_gecko.old and set the .wine/drive_c/windows/system32/gecko/ to be read only to prevent the wine_gecko to be reincarnated. (sorry I don't know chmod XXX number so if you wish to keep wine-gecko, you'd better create a specific wineprefix for QQ. there is another issue for daily use, see "What does not work"

I'm running latest version of Wine 1.3 actually am running the beta. However, i get the Program to open, yet as soon as someone sends a picture to one of the many discussions i am in. I crash. Any ideas, I am by no means a programmer, I just have had it through the roof with Windows O.S.

It is said to "NOT leave the mouse indicator focusing on the blank for entering password.",you should "move your mouse to the soft-keyboard logo as soon as possible" and "then move your mouse away as quickly as possible to other area and fill the other things."
In fact,you needn't so hurry like that.You also needn't to tick 'auto login'.You can sign-in more than an account at a time.
What you only to do is press "TAB" as quickly as you can when the main window is appearing.:-)
I think is easy than move my mouse.When the focus doesn't on the blank for entering password,you can choose which account you want to sign-in or status.
But you have to tick "Remember my password" unless you are very boring.:-)
PS:My English is very bad.If you want to laugh……you can laugh as loudly as you can.:-)
