Hi All,

This is Samsung Knox viewed on both Windows 7 and Wine-Staging 4.9.1. How do I fix the blurry text in Wine?

Many thanks,

@ToddAndMargo

Can you post terminal output with:
Code:
export WINEDEBUG=+font


Does:
Code:
fontsmooth=rgb

and/or:
Code:
winetricks corefonts

help any?

Are you using Gnome Shell?
Non-default DPI Scaling, etc.?

Thanks
Bob

"export WINEDEBUG=+font"
Yes: uploaded. I had to truncate it a bunch. It was 6.6 MB originally. Sent to vpaste as this forum does not like txt files:
http://vpaste.net/XnIWB

"Does `fontsmooth=rgb`" help
no change

"and/or: `winetricks corefonts` help any?
already installed

"Are you using Gnome Shell? Non-default DPI Scaling, etc.?"
Xfce 4.13, Fedora 30. Nothing special. Other wine programs word fine.

Also: I am thinking that these are images that are blurry, not font.

The terminal log is A-OK.

What happens if you increase (e.g. 2x) the Wine font DPI setting?
Any change to the readability / physical size of the dialog box?

Perhaps a terminal log, with:
Code:
export WINEDEBUG=+loaddll,+module

would help us to see what toolkit the application is using.

Thanks
Bob

How?

"export WINEDEBUG=+loaddll,+module"

Same blur ball. I don't think this is fonts, but images

"would help us to see what toolkit the application is using"
What do you mean?

My apologies... I assumed you would have read the WineHQ FAQ (required reading for any new Wine user)...
Specially: WineHQ FAQ: 6.6.7 How do I change the DPI (font size)?

You could try:
Code:
winetricks comctl32


Toolkit. Like Qt, Gtk.
You know you do searches on the www - right?!! :roll: (First Wikipedia search hit for me...)

# winetricks comctl32
...
comctl32 already installed, skipping

Increasing the font size does nothing (to this program, other it makes things YUGE).

All of my other Wine programs work fine as far as fonts go. I still think this is a graphics issue and not a font issue.

How is a Toolkit suppose to help? This is the only program with the blur ball issue.

According to https://www.samsungknox.com/en, Samsung Knox is something built into Samsung smartphones, and only available for Android and Tizen. How are you running this in Windows or Wine, and why would you even need to?

Knox Manage is Samsung's form of Go To Assist. Knox remote support has two sides: one run on their tablets (KnoxManageRemoteSupportClient.apk) and the other runs on Windows (KnoxManageRemoteSupportClient.exe). Both talk to a central server at Samsung to bypass firewalls.

I use Knox Remote to remote manage the devices for Payment Card industry (PCI) compliance.

I was simply trying to establish (beyond doubt) that the image is an image.
A toolkit will still (probably) be responsible for (miss-)drawing an image, in the popup, vs rendering actual text.
I was merely checking that what toolkit was being used. E.g. Qt-based applications have lots of issues, when run under Wine.

I would suggest filing a Wine bug at this point.
Ideally with a:
Code:
export WINEDEBUG=+timestamp,+tid,+all

terminal trace log attached.

The log would need to be compressed with something like:
Code:
xz -9 -e

since the WineHQ Bugzilla has annoyingly low attachment size limit (5000 Kbytes).

It's pain - since the popup has no actual rendered text - to search for in the log file - to enable it to be pruned down to a manageable size.
But ho hum... Maybe there is an activated menu control item - to trigger the popup??
Or does the popup just appear, on launching the application?
