What works


Most things tested... Advanced editing tested - works - some subforms such as the search and replace dialog boxes are missing border under KWin but otherwise all is fine. Dialog boxes without border still remain fully functional. Installs perfectly without a problem. You can drag and drop from Konqueror into notepad++ directly with no problems. Even "Launch in IE" in the "Run" menu works. Keyboard shortcuts work!

What does not

Only thing that doesn't seem to work is the dialog box borders for the Search & Replace dialogs and subdialogs of the sort under KWin but dialogs remain fully functional despite this. Also a slight glitch that can be expected is that if you are using the "Light Explorer" plugin (installed by default), it cannot access "My Network Places" - This however was expected. Fullscreen mode is slightly glitchy...


What was not tested

Macros not tested to full extent but seem to work on simple to medium macros, "Launch in firefox" not tested because firefox not installed in wine environment.

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.
