More notes on Frontier on Wine

  • Setting user.webbrowser.winDefaultBrowser to /usr/bin/manila will launch mozilla with webbrowser.launch. Doesn’t seem to launch with url.
  • the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT section of the registry doesn’t seem to exist. Writing to it using wine’s regedit puts info in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes.
  • Well, it looks like my winedefaultreg wasn’t merged in. But there still aren’t any classes_root.
  • winregistry.read appears to work, as does winregistry.write, if not going to the classes_root section.
  • We can determine if we’re in wine by looking for wine specific registry keys.
  • The user experience is a lot better in KDE than afterstep, but things are a lot slower. Go figure. I only have 256 megs in this machine.
