Does the update bar work in Linux?
« on: January 06, 2008, 03:34:30 am »
I have the WinMXWorld patched version. In Windows you see "Patch operational" or "Click here for help" or something there. In Linux all you see is the ugly white rectangle. I haven't had WinMX open in Windows in awhile so I don't know if its working or not. I know sometimes the server where that message comes from is down.

Is there anyway I could do something with that bar? Make it gray to match the rest of the area maybe? I can't stand having that ugly white rectangle there.

That depends on which WINE version you've got it running with.
If it's an older one (up to 0.9.16) that still uses Mozilla ActiveX then you just need to put this site's IP address into your hosts file (or any other address if you want) and the status bar will display.

If you're running a newer version that doesn't work anymore.
The gecko engine that's replacing Mozilla ActiveX currently isn't working with the status bar, wich is basically an embedded html page.
To make winmx run at all you need to override certain libraries thus disabling html embedding.
AFAIK there's no way to make it display anything or change the color or anything - sorry...

IMO that's a small price to pay to get an otherwise fully functional winmx under Linux though :walk:

with the new WINE you can make it display the background colour (but not render the text) if you override MSHTML.dll in addition to the other overrides
