DM6 in Linux/Wine - can't type anything!

Postby BinBuka » Sat Jan 03, 2015 6:20 am

I was using DM6 on my Ubuntu 12.04 computer several months ago, and it seemed to work pretty well. Just now I downloaded the latest version and the updates installer, and installed it onto a different computer running Wasta-12.04, which is also Ubuntu. The program seems to work, but I can't type anything into any dialog or text box in the program.

Has anyone else had this problem?

Is anyone still using DM with Linux/Wine?

Mystified...

I've not heard of this problem before.

Very interesting.

There are quite a few people using the Linux / Wine combination, although I don't know what DIstros they are using.

I'll test it on my Mint 17 this weekend, and also a Zorin install I have too to see if it is an issue there.

So, I'm not sure if it is a WINE issue or a distro issue here.

It might be a conflict with ibus or kmfl (Keyman for Linux). I just tried again and couldn't type in a DM box. When I turned off ibus I could type. I don't remember this happening in 2014 when I was using Ubuntu 12.04, but I can't say that for sure. If someone reads this who's using wasta and kmfl, have you seen this problem?

Thanks for the additional information.

I've tested it on my Linux Mint 17.1 here and have not seen this issue.
