Everything I've tried, with the important exception pattern fills, works as expected.
For all functions to run, the following needs to be installed in addition to plain Wine:
Registry entries for fonts
What does not
Pattern fills fails. Trying to fill an area with some pattern fills it, but usually not with the intended pattern. of colors. This also affects some scripted functions like "dungeon room".
One has to do a strange workaround with registry keys for fonts for text to work. Se my HOWTO document for details.
What was not tested
Certainly several more specialized functions. I'm learning this tool.
|Operating system||Test date||Wine version||Installs?||Runs?||Used|
|Current||Fedora Core 6 x86_64||Feb 05 2007||0.9.31.||Yes||Yes||Silver||GÃ¶ran Uddeborg|
This is the procedure I've used to run Fractal Mapper with wine 0.9.31, including a workaround to make fonts usable. It assumes you start a fresh wine tree, adjust as necessary if you use an already existing. You may consider starting a new tree by setting WINEPREFIX in the environment before you start. I use $WINEPREFIX below to refer to your wine tree; if you do not set anything, that will be .wine in your home directory.
Now you can start Fractal Mapper again and use it. Most things I've tried seems to work, The notable exception is pattern fills. Whenever a pattern fill is used, the area just either gets black or has wierd irregular colour combinations. I'm still trying to figure that one out.
