Selected Test Results (selected in 'Test Results' table below)

What works
Everything I tested, including exporting single slices.

What does not
File associations do not work by default, they can be fixed as follows:

edit the file ~/.local/share/applications/wine-extension-png.desktop (for example)
change this line:
Exec=wine start /ProgIDOpen pngfile %f
to this:
Exec=wine start /ProgIDOpen Fireworks.Doc %f

Nothing with the application itself as far as I can tell.

What was not tested
Not much that I know of.

Additional Comments

This thing is great! I had lots of problems with MX 2004, but 8 works great.

As a side note, I have some problems with nvidia drivers with this application, but that happens with other apps also, not specific to this.

I rated this "Platinum" even though the file associations don't work out of the box, because I feel that those aren't really 'part' of the program itself, but it's integration in the OS, and I don't really understand all about how they work anyway :D.

All in all, a great application.

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.
