What does not

1. When running from terminal, get a whole lot of (thousands) of fixme warnings such as:

0009:fixme:font:GetCharacterPlacementW flags 0x00000032 ignored

Definitions described [here](

This is expected as the wine winapi does not have implemented all the requested flags. Only GCP_REORDER, Function presented [here](

2. While adding a stamp, although it does work reports:

005b:err:winediag:SECUR32_initNTLMSP ntlm_auth was not found or is outdated. Make sure that ntlm_auth >= 3.0.25 is in your path. Usually, you can find it in the winbind package of your distribution.

3. File --> Preferences --> Speech : Crashes as the tab attempts to open "Speech" preferences

0009:fixme:sapi:spvoice_GetVoice (069B0D4C, 0032E77C): stub.
wine: Unhandled page fault on read access to 00000000 at address 042BAAE2 (thread 0009), starting debugger...


1.  set the wine environmental variable to not print out the fixme warnings

`WINEDEBUG=fixme-all wine PDFXEdit.exe`

2. :~$ sudo apt install winbond

3. None at the moment.
