black screen and crash - HeidiSQL 11, Wine 5.0, Ubuntu 20.04

Post by Mondane » Wed Sep 16, 2020 4:38 am

When I start HeidiSQL, my screen blinks to black a few times and then halts at a black screen. After waiting a few minutes, my OS becomes usable again, but all applications are closed. This won't happen for instance for `wine notepad`.

Using:

* HeidiSQL 11.0.0.5919 ( https://www.heidisql.com/ )
* Wine 5.0.2
* Ubuntu Unity 20.04.1 ( https://ubuntuunity.org/ )
* Laptop: Dell Precision 7550

What could this be?

NB When I set Wine to emulate a virtual desktop, the blinking isn't there and HeidiSQL can start. But this isn't a workable solution for me.
