Summary: Allowing multiple wine processes to share a virtual
AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
ReportedBy: chris.kcat at gmail.com
Currently, I have Wine set to use unmanaged windows on a 1024x768 virtual
desktop (same size as my real desktop). This helps with program compatibility
while allowing me to work with normal apps (as unmanaged windows seem to be
"always on top" of native X apps without the virtual desktop and thus get in
the way). Using KDE, I can then force Wine's virtual desktop window to be
borderless and put onto one of KDE's virtual desktop, which cleanly allows me
to winkey+tab between my main desktop(s) and a "Windows desktop".
However, a problem comes when I run multiple Wine applications. Each app gets
its own Wine-created virtual desktop window, and causes it to only let me see
a single app at a time. I can alt+tab between Wine's virtual desktops, but
each one blocks the view of others.. which makes having Windows apps set to
"always on top" meaningless since switching between Wine's virtual desktops
negates that effect, as well as just being aesthetically unpleasant.
Therefor, I propose an option to allow Wine apps to share a single virtual
desktop instead of letting each have its own. The first-run Wine process would
create it, and the last-closed process would close it.
