Re: XY with WINE on Linux... anybody tried it?

Ok so I've put XY through pretty much a day of hard use and it hasn't locked up on me since. However, I did avoid some known traps (such as an arbitrary bug that "sort of" happens when switching column 'size' from kB to MB). The farther I dig into Xy the more oddities I find. For example, for some r...

Re: XY with WINE on Linux... anybody tried it?

Thanks 40k for running all these tests. Good to know it's working in certain conditions. I removed ubuntu only recently and could have tested this bug. Will try to reinstall this weekend. Any information is welcome. At the moment the beta builds for 13.70 seem to be holding up nicely. I'm currently...

Well looks like I got here just in time :)

Clonezilla boots a minimal unix environment and uses dd to clone your hard disks.
Stop paying for this kind of software.

Re: XY with WINE on Linux... anybody tried it?

admin wrote:Num=4 refers to the format of the bytes in the Size column. 4 = MB, 2 = KB (rounded).

I don't see how this could be a problem.
Bug is now confirmed: switching the data size columns from kB to mB causes a xyplorer to crash. Switching them back stops the plist@21 error from appearing!

Re: XY with WINE on Linux... anybody tried it?

:appl: I see and I believe! You still get the error at startup? More interesting developments this morning! So the standard start-up error is still there as you can see below. However, I have a theory the solution may be much easier than anticipated. http://i.imgur.com/xDvhQQt.png I have also been ...

Re: XY with WINE on Linux... anybody tried it?

And thanks to some wizardry with Custom File Associations, we now have native application launching from inside Xyplorer!

Re: New Columns

I'd go for Custom Columns.
Fits in with Custom File Associations and Custom File Icons.

Re: XY with WINE on Linux... anybody tried it?

I won't do anything now. I don't have any time left in my day to spare for WINE thoughts. But (contradicting what i said above :whistle: ) I think I see now how to improve 13.70 a little to make it as good as 13.60 again under WINE. :) Wait for tomorrow's beta... Newest beta works fine again!!! :cl...

Re: XY with WINE on Linux... anybody tried it?

OK, thanks, but such an extra call is too costy for 99.9999% of my users. I'd rather add a tweak Wine=1 . :) Or one could add something to startup.ini or so. But only if some Ubuntu users start knocking at my door waving euro bills... :) Hang on, you could just do that though. Xy is a native Window...

Re: XY with WINE on Linux... anybody tried it?

What error message are you getting now? In fact, it's still the same error message. I was mistaken. Xy loads completely, but when it's finished there are no "close" or "minimize" buttons, the same that all windows apps have. After that it locks up and I can't click anything. It must be related to a...
