Does anybody know the basic problem with Microsoft Publisher '97 not
working with wine? I'm willing to debug it a bit, but I want to find
out how big of a project it is first. Or maybe somebody else is
working on this already?
Publisher '97 loads files and seems to almost complete functionality on
my system. Unfortunately I can't click on any UI elements and keyboard
events aren't processed. Someone seems to have even gotton Publisher
2000 to work (there is a workaround posted in the application
database). However this fix doesn't work on Publisher '97. I would
like to patch this, especially if it is relatively straightforward to
What kind of logging can I turn on to find out what is happening to the
mouse/keyboard events, etc.
