What works

Everything works exactly as it does on native windows. I did not have to set any overrides with wine. I printed out the

Additional Comments

To install, first make sure your running an up to date distro (this includes installing up to date ttf fonts). Download and install from jw.org. Run the icon from desktop. 

Some have had to change the font, but this is not a wine issue - if you have run practically any other program on wine the fonts will have been installed.


Everything was tested. Tested on macos mojave, Mint 19 Tara, and Antergos.

On 10-8-18 TsnVictor posted that WTLIB crashed when playing video. I've done my best to scour the program but can't find any video anywhere. Perhaps he is trying to run the app from the windows 10 store? New test results posted.

Indeed it does crash with errors from quartz on linux. Macos didn't crash it just didn't play... strange.
