What works

Preliminary testing indicates this version works at least as well as the previous version, in which all essential features worked out of the box, just as in Windows.

What does not

The most notable feature to fail under Wine is 'Autotype'. There are other minor anomalies, but nothing else hampers full use under Wine.


What was not tested

I have yet to test some minor features, but these have worked over the last seven versions.

HowTo / Notes

To prevent the Password Safe window from losing it's contents when switching virtual desktops: Run winecfg; click on "Add application" in the configuration window and a browser window opens. Navigate to the folder where Password Safe was installed. The default location is: "C:\Program Files\Password Safe\". Select pwsafe.exe and click on Open. Back in the configuration window, select pwsafe.exe and click the Graphics tab. Uncheck "Allow the window manager to control the windows"; click Apply, then click OK.
