    It already is in the wine ppa:

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
    sudo apt-get install wine1.2

    Apparently it was included in 1.1.34, but that doesn't seem to solve LDD3. I think they only implemented a PrintWindow fix, rather than all fixes needed for LDD3?

    Yeah just the fix to get it running, I haven't had time to look into the other issues (scrolling, black right hand panel etc.)

    It's not really. I've been busy with Xmas + other projects. Could you write Wine bug reports for all the issues you know of and link them here? (I guess the scrolling one is the most important) Then when I get a chance I'll go through and see if any of them is something I can fix.

    Wait! Native quartz.dll fixes the scrolling issue!

    Download quartz.dll from here: http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dl...s.shtml?quartz

    (Windows license required most likely etc. etc.)

    Extract the DLL and copy it to ~/.wine/drive_c/Windows/system32
    Run: winecfg

    Under libraries, type "quartz" and click "Add" then OK.

    Run Lego DD in all it's functional glory

    EDIT: As a side note, I received an automatic update to LDD just now and it downloaded, ran the update and then ran the application just like native Windows, - Wine rules.

    Re: Lego Digital Designer in Wine

    Would it be possible to find or create a Wine equivalent of quartz.dll that can be included in the main ppa? Or is this too difficult or beside the point or somesuch?

    The reason that scrolling doesn't work under vanilla Wine is there is a bug in the built-in quartz.dll - that's why using the one from Windows works.

    What we should do is create a bug report with a traceback of the crash, noting that the native DLL works fine. I'll do that a little later. Unfortunately I don't have the time to track down and fix that actual bug though

    Nope, I think I've done all I can (I don't have any time to look into it). The state with Wine 1.1.36 is that it works fine with a native quartz.dll but still crashes without.
