In other words everything is blanked out where you would normally log on. So if I enter my log on information I can't get it to run anyway because server is blanked out. I've tried this on many forex brokers and the result is always the same.

Any suggestions - anyone else have this problem? Please I have to get this working.

I feel like a fool for asking now. I think my mistake can be attributed to using a shortcut to run it. I haven't had a problem with it if I open the application through the wine directory. Even though I was giving the option to open with wine with the shot-cut it apparently doesn't work properly. So the simple fix was to find the exe in wine and run with wine.
There are some other issues that I have encountered so your link might help. Currently some of the graphics in the custom indicators I use don't display as they were intended. For instance some dot's in indicator windows show up as a different graphic. Thanks again I will check out that link next.
