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.

Ubuntu 20.04
Unity desktop

Not yet. I've kept the virtual desktop.

Switching to 6.x doesn't work either and gives me another issue of starting up everything like a slideshow.

Sounds to me like your Xorg/Wayland backend crashes and GDM (or whatever) automatically restarts a session. Go to the Ubuntu forum, they'll help you read your logs and figure out what the problems on your particular system are.

Given the platinum/gold ratings for HeidiSQL in the AppDB, the problem you described is almost certainly not an issue with Wine.

Indeed, I run linux mint 20 and I just downloaded and ran the installer to a test 64bit prefix and the program does start ok for me.
