Wine and Miranda

Postby hoppel » Thu Nov 15, 2007 3:41 pm

Hi,


I decided to use Miranda under WINE and it works perfectly fine but has one little flaw: I start it after booting with the session manager using this line:

winelauncher /home/***/Miranda/miranda32.exe


it starts and works, but its icon doesn't appear in the tray but instead in a little WINE window. When I start it manually it automatically appears in the tray...

Is something wrong with my session manager command?

No - only if you keep the *** :lol:
Think it has to do with when you start it - the session manager may start it before everything is up and running

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

I thought the same and was wrong...

Well, now I checked it several times and I discovered one thing, which might be responsible: Whenever I try to reconfigure the session manager to get miranda started after everything else - all settings are lost after a reboot. So it seems to be impossible to try your hint... Maybe it's a bug.

Probably, you never know what anything will do in wine until you try it.
