Troubleshooting missing text

I have an issue with a game that runs fine apart from the fact that some
specific text isn't rendered at all.

Thought it might be a case of a missing font, given that the game seems
to render text correctly in most circumstances, and to that end have
tried to run WINE using WINEDEBUG=+font and looking through the
generated trace messages. However, I couldn't find anything suspicious
in there. The `err' or `warn' directives didn't yield any useful
information either.

I've got MS' corefonts installed and also Tahoma.

My question to the list, then, is perhaps the approach highlighted above
is incorrect or incomplete and, if so, how can I troubleshoot this issue
I'm having regarding missing text?

Yes. To answer your second question, I do not generally think so unless a company really wants to fund and do
it. It has been a 100% voluntary effort from day 1 and has made a decent amount of progress. It borrows a good
portion of Wine for its code but also does things Wine does not such as work with devices. ReactOS is
pariah-like. People know it exists but almost nobody uses it.

Their main problem is motivation. Who really wants to build a full clone of Windows (as opposed to do
something more original)? There have been attempts in the past but none have come so far as ReactOS. I only
defend the project (as with Wine) in the sense that someday these old applications may not run and we have an
alternative to emulation. However, I do not think ReactOS or Wine will be the norm for running older
applications over emulation unless it is fully supported (like how Wine has the commercial product).

ReactOS had a good initial start. A Windows replacement when Windows went south with Vista was the thought.
But that faded quickly. Key contributors left the project due to lack of interest, and it got stuck for at
least a year, however the website was maintained seemingly. The project recently was part of a IndieGogo
funding effort, but even that failed to meet its goal. There clearly is just not a lot of interest. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/reactos-community-edition

Would it be cool to have a viable Windows replacement? Maybe. Given that I only use Windows VMs to test IE it

I have noticed that also.  Does anyone here know anything about the
ReactOS project?  Is it ever going to be a respectable free non-Unix
operating system, like Haiku or Plan 9?

Certificates in applications run in wine

Hello people :)

I have an application that needs a certificate to run.
How to import these? It doesn't seem to be enough place them inside
/usr/share/ca-certificates and run update-ca-certificates..

Does anyone know of maybe an easy windows cmd tool that I can run
under wine to easily import the certificate maybe?

Thanks in advance!

Change wineprefix after brlcad installation

I have a bit of an odd problem; a short while back I installed brlcad
(<http://brlcad.org/> (brlcad_7.24.2-0_amd64.deb). I later purged
brlcad. However I now notice that my wineprefix seems to have been set to:
(note the ':' colon after .wine)

and I can't seem to change it back to ~/.wine

I've checked my .bashrc:
export WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.wine
my /etc/environment:

Windows registry is also showing brlcad in \Software\Wine\MenuFiles

wine-1.7.24 and steam: the game does not start


I am on wine-1.7.24 [1] with Steam [2] installed.
No problem with Steam: I can sign-in and download games.
But after this, when I click on the "play" button, nothing happens (the game does not start).
The trace of "$ wine Steam 1>&2 2>/tmp/steam.txt" is here: http://pastebin.com/ZG664ceE
Do you see something strange?

Thank you.
Best regards.

Gdb doesn't respond to a commands

I have a problem is that I am develop an application for Windows(under
GNU/Linux, of course), and I can't find a way to debug it. I have tried
different things, and finally come to a conclusion that most comfortable
way would be is to use gdb.exe from Windows version of MinGW..
The problem is that when I am launched the gdb.exe under wine, and try to
enter something, it doesn't respond to any of a commands that I am
entering, with exception of "Ctrl-z" and "Ctrl-c" keys. Have someone an
idea what to do?
