Ubuntu Gutsy, Gnome and wine-0.9.59
Regression - NoteTab works pretty well in wine-0.9.58 (a few minor quirks)
When NoteTab is launched, it only appears on the panel while loading. After
loading, it is nowhere to be seen on the panel. This makes it impossible to
minimize/maximize. If it is minimized from the application bar, it disappears
and there is no way to get it back. The process needs to be killed.
Photoshop and a few other Windows apps do not have this problem with
Last night I installed wine-0.9.59 and NoteTab Pro 5.61 on a fresh install of
Ubuntu Gutsy on an old Dell and on Xubuntu Gutsy in Virtual Box.
Wine/NoteTab on the fresh install of Ubuntu produced the same bug which I
observed on three other Gutsy installs I tested including my new working box.
Several other NoteTab users also reported this bug on the NoteTab Linux list.
The shade format of XFCE handled minimizing NoteTab just fine. It has been
reported on the NoteTab Linux list, that it also works with KDE and XFCE on
I thought it might be related to Compiz that is running on my new machine but
since the bug also appeared on the old Dell that doesn't seem to be the case.
The bug seems to be Gnome specific.
NoteTab author, Eric Fookes also posted these comments which might be helpful
in correcting it:
"I suspect these issues affect any application that was compiled with Borland
Delphi. I very much doubt that NoteTab is the only application affected.
"Unlike programs created with other compilers, Delphi programs use an invisible
application window and a main application form that is the visible part of the
program. The Wine developers need to take this special approach into account if
they want their product to work correctly with all Delphi applications."
I searched and found several other possibly related bugs But wanted to report
the Gnome specificity and also the comments about Borland Delphi.
I have rolled back to wine-0.9.58 for the moment.
I'm experiencing the exact problem with a "run-out-of-box" web server, Turbo
Delphi-based, HFS by
Its tray icon appears, but can't minimize it to tray (it exits!) even if the
option "minimize to tray on close" is switched on.
Seems there are major problems about minimize/open/restore with this app(works
correctly on Windows).
Mine is set to start in tray: it shows its window for half a second then
itself in tray, this works.
1)if I double click on the tray icon it doesn't show up. Done this, I can't no
more click the restore button on right click menu.
2)If I remember to click restore it shows its window, but not in the bottom bar
nor in alt-tab.
3)It really goes nowhere if I minimize it, I must close it then.
4)So, the only way to show it correctly is to right click and let it do a "Self
test", which at the end opens a dialog box with a message, and voilà, seems
like this is what makes its window appear, and so the icon in the bottom bar.
4)As just complained, mine is set to minimize to tray if closed. Instead, it
Tried to obtain a new build from its helpful coder Rejetto to make it appear
always as it does after self test, but nothing to do.
Oh, Wine 1.1.2 and Ubuntu 8.04.1.Seems like all this worked correctly with
*some* old Wine builds.
