What does not
Both the greeting dialog and New Board Wizard have a tendency to freeze. Both appear to be IE frames:
fixme:urlmon:InternetBindInfo_GetBindString not supported string type 20
fixme:jscript:JScriptProperty_SetProperty Unimplemented property 70000001
fixme:mshtml:HttpNegotiate_GetRootSecurityId (0x2dfb0a8)->(0x32d0dc 0x32ccc4 0)
In either case the process usually has to be terminated. In addition, the greeting requires Internet access. It will also sometimes show a "Bad Request - Invalid Verb/HTTP Error 400" which may be a server problem. The greeting can not be bypassed but the Wizard has a checkbox option to disable it at start-up.
The installer includes Visual C++ 2013 libraries but the greeter/wizard are very unstable with it. They are much more stable with the winetricks version. Typical abort message:
wine: Call from 0x7b83ce82 to unimplemented function msvcr120.dll._ismbclower, aborting
What was not tested
Review of PCB data submitted to Sunstone Circuits.
Xubuntu 14.04 x86_64, AMD Phenom 9550, GeForce GTX 750Ti wine-staging PPA PCB123 v5.2.0 Help is a PDF manual that requires an external viewer. Does not have a Gerber/RS274X or drill output. Saturn Electronics now offers to email them for free with a PCB order, for a $100 file generation fee without an order. Installation: winetricks -q vcrun2013 wine pcb123v5-2-0allinstaller1.exe (or whatever the name is)
