What works

- Installation worked out fine, it installed incredibly fast aswell.

I painted a simple picture and most things seemed to be working just fine, but there are some annoying bugs here and there.

What does not

- When the installation finishes there are checkbox for launching Fireworks and viewing the readme files. The checkboxes are invisible but clickable.

- If you want a lighter tone on a color in the color palette you can't click and drag the black arrow, you'll have to click in the palette to change the color.

- All sliders (like the font size slider and the rectangle roundness slider) have some problems. If I click a slider and drag it up a bit, it doesn't go away and apply the changes when I release the button. To edit font size you have to write the value and press Enter.


What was not tested

- Most things, I just wanted to see if it was working at all.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO: Make png files open with fireworks

This no longer works with newer versions of wine

ok, if you want to make your png files open with Fireowrks by default, heres hwo to do it.

1 - Get the launcher details for Fireworks, it should look something like this

env WINEPREFIX="/home/~user~/.wine" wine "C:\Program Files\Macromedia\Fireworks 8\Fireworks.exe"

you will need to change ~user~ to you username, eg madnessred. If you are unsure please look at the bottom of this post for an alternative mthod to find it out.

2 - Once you have got your launcher details right click on a png file, slect "Open with > Open with other application"

3 - Where it says "|> Use a custom command", click that

4 - A box will appear, in that paste the custom launcher information and press open. Now fireworks will open with that file. Clsoe fireworks. Now when you double lick to open a png it will open with fireowrks.


 How to find out your fireworks launcher information

1 - Right click on the fireworks icon in the Applications Menu (For me Applications > Wine > Programs > Macromedia > Macromedia Fireworks 8

2 - Select add launcher to desktop

3 - Right click on the Fireworks Icon, select properties, select the launcher tab.

4 - Where it says command, copy the text from that box, that is you launcher information.
