What works

Quite alot actually.

1. Login works, provided that you click on the keyboard icon next to the password field and use the tooltip popup that comes from it to enter your password.  After you enter your password, do NOT click inside the password field, but press enter or click login.  For future login, I would advise an automatic sign-in as it gets around the password field crash bug.

2. I tested most of the side bar features, (address list, memo, settings, mail, QQ Groups, etc) and found that almost all of them worked.

What does not

1.  First and foremost, you cannot click into the password field to enter your password.  If you do, QQ will crash.  Make sure that you use the keyboard button next to the password field to enter your password.

2. The QQ Groups sidebar button does not work. It can be pressed but nothing loads up.

3. For the QQ Games and QQ Apps sidebar buttons, they do work but there are still some font issues so you can't really see what to click on when they load.  However, if you can open one of the apps/games up they seem to load and work.

4. When I click the "Suggestions/Feedback" button it loads a comment form but due to font issues not all of the fields are visible.  Again, it's usable but you have to click around a bit to find the text entry fields.


What was not tested

1.  I have not tested chatting, voice chatting, video chatting, file transfer.  This is not my QQ account so I don't want to disturb something.  I am reasonably sure that regular chatting works.  Voice and Video chatting might be a bit less stable.

Additional Comments

Since I haven't had a chance to test most of the chatting features, my rating is subject to change once I test that. Also, there are several packages you are going to need to install via winetricks. I am not sure if all of them are needed, but I have a feeling they are. You will need: gdiplus msxml3 ie6 vcrun6 vcrun2005 vcrun6sp6 riched20 riched30 I have a feeling that flash might be needed, but I'm not sure. Once I can work around the broken flash file in winetricks so that I can install it I'll report back. I would also suggest that you put this in a separate wine bottle from your main .wine bottle. If you don't know how to make wine bottles, use the following command: export WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.nameofyourbottlehere After you successfully run that command, you can run winetricks and it will be for that particular bottle.

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.:-)
