What works

After updating my wine installation to 0.9.20 most features that I use worked. This test is "out of the box". I attemped to add some DLL overrides with no real change in fuctionallity. (I used an older version[0.9.14 I think] at first from the Ubuntu repositories that barely worked because NJStar couldn't open a new document)

Here's a list:

  • Inputing of chinese using NJStar's internal input editor.
  • mouse over definitions.
  • inserting of definitions into document.
  • Hanzi Information (information on a selected single charactor)
  • Converting of Chinese Charactors to Pinyin (this has some problems at times when there are multiple pronunciations for a particular charactor - understandable and obviously not a problem with wine)
  • looking up charactors by radicals (this is the only function that was usable in the older version)
  • General charactor formating (underline, double underline, color for all Charactors and Bold and italic of western charactors.)
  • General paragraph formating (Alignment, indention, boarders) (NJStar's general formating is very basic)
  • spell check
  • Document recovory after a crash.
  • search
  • saving of files (I have had a save crash NJStar once recovory worked nicly)
  • enforcing of teaching rules (basicly it just disables learning helps that you set up in 'options')

What does not

  • Glinputing chinese using SCIM (produces '?' I believe this is because NJStar does not have a UTF8 setting, options are Standard Eglish or western System, Chinese Big5 System or Chinese GBK system)
  • Hanzi of the day (crashes NJStar)
  • Browsable dictionary (crashes NJStar - This is the only feature that I really wish would work.)
  • Bold and italic of Chinese charactors (may be a limitation of NJStar Basic).
  • Tools->options input method tab (crashes NJStar there are other ways to change some of the settings)


What was not tested

  • printing (no printer available)
  • Glossary (not sure what it's suposed to do)
  • Study list (not sure how to use it)
  • other input methods besides pinyin (there are dozens including Japanese and Cantonese that I see in the list)
  • a fair number of other features that I haven't had time to learn.
