323Re: Wine 1.1.4 Released September 5, 2008
- Sep 7, 2008Glad to help.
I finally got back to my Slackware box. Gnome is not available out of
the box for Slackware, and I do not have the time to jump the hoops to
I run XFCE most of the time, and occasionally KDE.
Long story short, I do not have a problem with minimizing on Slackware
Debian only has Wine 1.1.1. Using KDE I do not have a problem
minimizing there. I'll have to see if I can locate a package for
1.1.4. That or wait for the new Debian later this month.
I will have to try changing Window Managers on all these boxes. It
could be just a Gnome thing, or just an Ubuntu thing.
This is not the first time this has been an issue with different
Distributions or Window Managers.
It could be more a Gnome issue. Slackware quit including Gnome, since
Gnome does some weird things that are "non-standard" for other
programs in Linux. I do not know all the technical details, but it
makes Gnome more the culprit based on that. Not proof, but something
to keep in mind.
If anyone has Ubuntu and wants to try changing their Window Manager,
the xwmconfig utility should be accessible from the command line.
Ubuntu may have a GUI on the menu to do this. Try both KDE and XFCE,
if you can.
I am not going to be able to get back to my Ubuntu box tonight. It may
be Wednesday before I can get to it with all the chaos of kids back in
school and full tilt. ;-)
Too many irons in the fire, but I'm slowly getting rid of some....
