Bad display for a software

Post by wormsf » Fri Nov 06, 2020 1:00 pm

Hello
I have Mint 20 linux, I have installed wine-5.0 (Ubuntu 5.0-3ubuntu1)
through wine I run an accounting software
when I move the mouse, the list of operations in the main window is no longer readable
Capture d’écran du 2020-11-06 00-50-22.JPG
the software uses the windows function "ListView" for display

Try installing comctrl32.dll (I think that's the name) using winetricks and see if it helps or not.

Also - is this an open source program such that I might be able to download and try it out to see?

Wouldn't let me add to above so I have to ask separately - what desktop are you running (Mate, Cinnamon, xfce, etc.)?
I don't know if this is a solution for your problem, so I'll just ask if you have tried

Code: Select all

winetricks settings fontsmooth=disable

Sorry for the delay to answer
Thank you for your help
I am running cinamon desktop,
I have installed comctl32.dll : No change
I have run winetricks settings fontsmooth=disable: No change
the software I use is Comptes by ymsoft , there is a version without licence

My French is not very good, so I hope I tested the right program, Ymsoft Comptes Bancaires version 10.1
I only get this program working in a 32-bit Wineprefix with the winetricks: jet40 and mdac28
Did you use any winetricks?

It could also be a font problem. Have you installed the Linux package ttf-mscorefonts-installer?

It's the right software
it runs under Wine 32 bits,
yes through winetricks I have installed jet40 and mdac28, and under linux I have the package ttf-mscorefonts-installer

As said in my first mail, the software uses Microsoft function called "ListView", to display for display
