What works

Everything tested.

What does not

Sliders can occaisonaly be a bit glitchy, sometimes there effect does not tak eplace when you click away, and sometimes they try and open in a new window, but 95% of the time they are fine. Note that the same arrow slider will work sometimes and not others, its not that one of them is broken.

The slider on the colour wheel works now, however the slider itself cannot be draged, you must drag it as if the slider was on top of the colour, not next to it.

Changing colour of single characters in text. When you select a section of text and change its colour, the entire object changes colour. Note that this may also be the case in windows but I cannot check atm.

Can be a bit flickery when closing images or similar things. Not a major problem though.

Filetype association still does not work.

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.
