Selected Test Results

What works

- Installation.
- Configuration (fonts, colors, ...).
- 2D plot.
- 3D plot.
- Saving algebra window.

What does not

- Derive help (because of winhelp.exe).
- Printer configuration (caused a crash).
- Printing (just does nothing).


What was not tested

- On window$ some expressions made Derive run out of memory, but I can not say if it will happen more often in Wine, and if some expressions which could be solved on window$ will cause this error on Wine.

Additional Comments

If your Derive 6 hangs up when entering plot window (2D or 3D), try setting window$ version to 3.1 in winecfg (just for this application). It worked for me and now Derive plots perfectly both in 2D and 3D.
