What works

Everything works as expected (refer to what I have not tested)

NOTES: 

- I added `export WINEARCH=win32` to .bashrc (before installing Wine) to as I have read that this provides better compatibility over running 32bit mode of 64bit OS.

- It didn't work on any version of Wine other than staging version (3.13) on Ubuntu 16.04

What does not

Clipboard didn't work out of the box.  Anytime something was copied to clipboard, Workspaces client would crash. 

Workarounds

Installing VB Runtime 2013 with `winetricks vcrun2013` fixed the issue

What was not tested

Did not test printing (I just don't have a printer)... removed plug-in as per instructions from other users by:

removing the vchan_plugins/pcoip_vchan_remoteprintclient.dll from the Amazon workspaces client install directory.

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU: Intel
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

Wine fills the gap left by Amazon not providing a native Linux Workspace client.  Kudos the Wine developers.  Well done and Thank you :)

The current version (2.4.10.889) segfaults on Docker, any ideas? gist.github.com/mausch/78ea4dc473e6d270581d544e0a4e6a6f

Forgot to mention that it segfaults when trying to add a new registration code
It works for single screen only, it doesn't support dual-monitor as the Windows does
