What works

Notepad++ installs without any errors under wine 0.9.8

What does not

When I launch Notepad++ under wine 0.9.8 I get the following error (tried emulating all version of windo$ with the same error)

wine notepad++.exe

wine: Unhandled page fault on read access to 0x00000020 at address 0x419054 (thread 003d), starting debugger...
Usage: winedbg [--command cmd|--file file|--auto] [--gdb [--no-start] [--with-xterm]] cmdline


What was not tested

I didn't do any debugging for my lack of time currently...I would be glad to do any testing, debugging I can to help though as I think this would be a great addition to the Linux world (and of course my own personal linux world).

HowTo / Notes

Recovering from a Lost Menubar

If you activate a toggled menubar (Settings->Preferences->Menu Bar->check box "Hide (use Alt or F-10 key to toggle"), then close the Preferences window, you will not have a menubar. There are two known options to regain the menubar. (Bug 21918)

Option 1 - disallow the window manager to decorate the windows

$ winecfg

Graphics->Window Settings->uncheck box "Allow the window manager to decorate the windows"

Option 2 - have Wine emulate a virtual desktop

$ winecfg

Graphics->Window Settings->check box "Emulate a virtual desktop"


Both options are configurations to Wine which can be found in "Wine configuration", which does not need to be started from the command-line; that is just the method that I've chosen.
