           Summary: Mathematica 5.1, Display errors, unreadable.
           Product: Wine
           Version: 0.9.55.
          Platform: PC-x86-64
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: -unknown
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: jacobidiego at gmail.com


I have previously filed a bug about Mathematica not being able to install:
URL: http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11725

And this same bug in one report which will be marked as invalid:

The errors of this report is:

- Some characters are not displayed as they should.
Writing an expression like: (2+x)/(x^2-3) will be showed as (2+x)}(x^2-3).
Note the "/" is changed by "}", but double "//" is correctly showed as "//".

Also Pressing x² makes Mathematica crashes just becouse the correct expression
is x^2 and not x² or x³.

Also there seems to be some conditions for the "/" to be drawed, like if it is
preceded by a variable o number:   see 1/x or x/(x-3) then the "/" will be
drawed, but if is is preceded by a ) or ] then "}" will be drawed:  (x-3)/x or
Sin[x]/x. Thats wear.

- Mathematical representation is badly printed.
When you enter expressions like (2+x)/(x^2-3) Mathematical has the really nice
feature of showing this as a nice looking fraction. Also it can represent it
with ascii characters if you choose that, but with wine, it doesn't shows the
goodlooking expression and shows a terrible badly drawed ascii expression. Just
to say, "1/x" can not be readed with this expression.

But i am not entirely sure when and why. Trying a bit furder and i can get some
examples which are correctly drawn:
But a fraction will not be correctly displayed:
Maybe this has something to do with the first error that mathematica will show
a "}" instead of a "/":    (2+x)}(x^2-3)

All this errors were tested on ubuntu 7.10 AMD64 and with wine 0.9.55 (becouse
.56 is not available yet for ubuntu on your repos) and with all builtin dlls,
but also some natives does the same results.

It is only one of other errors of Mathematica.

I have no logs for that.
