Sending and receiving text, emoticons and files.
Typing Chinese characters with IBus.
Receiving and playing audio.
The small black window still goes out sometimes, but the probabality is lower than wine 2.12 (and a very dirty WINEPREFIX I'd used).
View articles from WeChat Official Accounts (å…¬ä¼—å·).
What does not
Sometimes it complains an error when you exit.
When you exit, the offline status is not uploaded to the server. Then WeChat on your mobile phone won't notify you about new messages by default (it thinks you're still on Windows). You have to manually click "exit Windows WeChat" on your mobile phone.
Can not view videos from Official Accounts. You can click "open the article in explorer" to view them.
To send message and emotions you need to winetricks riched20. Use newer version of winetricks. The old winetricks install riched32.dll and it works badly in Wine.
To view articles from Official Accounts you must install wine-gecko.
To send files you need to winetricks ole32.
Change operating system version to Windows 2003 or you can't read articles from Official Accounts.
It seems like turn off your IBus before opening WeChat can suppress the strange black window. (Not sure.)
