Hi!

I'm trying to execute simple wxWidgets program under Wine. But there are some errors with drawing toolbars, notebooks, etc. Should I rebuild wxWidgets with different flags (for example __WINE__) to correct errors?

Which version of wine are you using?

With recent wine versions wine works fine for me even when trying very complicated wxWidgets applications.

What are the errors?
How did you build the library?
Can you build and run minimal sample?

Thank you.

You really need to tell us what these errors are.

No. There are some (not wx-specific) problems in Wine, but wx applications
run more or less fine under Wine since always.

You might be using some very old, very new or non-default Wine
configuration, but it really doesn't make much sense to speculate without
knowing what your problem actually is.

I'm trying to use Wine 7.5. I think there is some erase background error.

This should definitely be recent enough to work well.

Could you please confirm that you using wx 3.1.7? There were some problems
with transparency handling, but they were supposed to have been fixed by
now. If not, I'm going to have a look...

I don't understand what's going on here, but I don't see it, the toolbar
sample comes up just fine for me. I'm using wine-7.0 (Debian 7.0~repack-1)
so it's possible that it got broken with 7.5, but this seems unlikely... Do
you use 32 or 64-bit Wine?

OTOH I do have a new mysterious problem with Wine myself: it doesn't work
for me with remote X11 display any longer. There are no errors or anything
but the windows just don't appear any more. I can still run the samples
using wxGTK using the remote server just fine, but with Wine nothing works,
not even notepad.exe. Has anyone seen this by chance and, especially, does
anybody know how to solve this problem?

Thanks in advance for any ideas,

Works here on wine 7.10 (using ssh -X, DISPLAY=localhost:10.0).

Thanks for testing, Nerijus, maybe it will work for me too once 7.10
appears in Debian.

BTW, speaking about Wine, let me share a tip which it took me quite some
time to find: since Wine 7, omitting the ".exe" extension in the command
names doesn't work any longer if any path is used, even "./". I.e.
previously all of

$ wine ./foo
$ wine /home/me/foo
$ wine ./foo.exe
$ wine foo

worked (the last only when the current directory was $HOME, of course), but
with Wine 7 only the last two work, i.e. as soon as any path is specified,
.exe must be given as well.
