What works

Nearly everything, with about the same speed and snappiness as if running it on Windows.

What does not

Once you have installed CDisplayEx, it will default to a blank gray screen. The context menus do not have labels. You can work around this by setting CDisplay to open up in window mode, by editing cdisplayex.xml in ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/CDisplayEx to the following:

Clicking the File > Load File... option segfaults the program, so you cannot open your comics through that. Instead, the files must be dragged into the window, or opened through the console (wine cdisplay.exe /path/to/file).

Alternatively, you can extract the comics to a folder, then use File > Open Folder... to view them.

Upon loading any file, it shows an error window, with options to continue, restart, or close the program, or send a bug report. This same window also appears when you exit, as well as on many other operations (auto colors, fit to screen, double page, etc).Clicking 'Continue' lets you continue, so it can be ignored.


What was not tested

I've only tried it on a few ZIP and CBR files, so I don't know how it will fare on other formats like 7zip.
