I'm having medium success with Enterprise Architect 7.1 in wine.
While crossover-office-6.0.0 (in Ubuntu Edgy) is able to display the fonts in
+ Key-Store Config dialog (where you have to enter the product keys)
+ UML diagram (class diagram) NOTES-Item
this does NOT work with wine-1.1.3 and also the last wine version before 1.0
in Ubuntu (different versions).
The strange thing is:
You can select different fonts for the note-text - but this has no impact on
the displayability - there is always an empty area, where the text should get
displayed. Thus this problems seems to depend on the way this special text is
As it works with crossover-6.0.0, I suspect that this depends on some
I tried already fresh .wine setup with different setups -e.g. with/without
dcom98, mdac, riched (installed with the winetricks).
The problem happens even with pure wine setup - i.e. I used winetricks only
during my tries to workaround (as its much easier there to install things
like dcom98, ...).
I wonder, why the AppDB doesn't list those font rendering problems - is this
dependent on Ubuntu, so that the other reporters were not affected, or did
nobody try notes in class diagrams?
I'm working in a 32-Bit CPU System with quite normal Ubuntu Hardy Setup. The
X11 is running with 23Bit color depth (as written in the xorg.conf).
The font preview in the font selection dialog for the Diagram-Note is showing
the font in a correct way - only the rendering of the font in the real
context doesn't work.
Installation source is binary package from 1.1.3~winehq0~ubuntu~8.04-0ubuntu1
(sources.list: deb http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt hardy main)
Thanks for any suggestion to solve this problem,
