hi
  you have been a help to me b4  when i was having probs  running winmx thru wine on Ubuntu 7.10. 
 Other than minor details, it is working well  ty 
 I am now trying to get winmx to work on other machine  running Kubuntu 8.04 
Wine installed ok, Geko did its thing, but when i tried to run winmx, I got no splash screen for the winmxconex patch  and of course winmx will not connect.  I do have the .dll patch in my winmx folder [i got another copy of it and replaced it just to be sure] but the yellow light just keeps flashing.
Anybody got any ideas?
thanks

Did you add the dll override for the oledlg.dll manually?

Wine needs to be told to use the patch .dll instead of it's own supplied .dll with the same name.
To make it do that you need to open the wine config tool "Winecfg".
It might be somewhere in your menu or in your Control Center under "System Administration".

If it's nowhere to be found simply open a terminal/konsole and type "winecfg", that will open it.
In there simply go to the "Libraries" tab, select "oledlg" from the drop-down menu and hit "add".
It will then show in the list as "oledlg (native,builtin).

Now close the config tool and try your luck again :)
