Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF)

Post by jimapplecore » Fri Feb 12, 2021 9:23 pm

Is there an effort to get programs that depend on Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) working?
Is there a Linux equivalent? Are all windows applications that are built with WPF doomed?
Is WPF too old and infrequently used to make the effort worth while?
I searched for definitive information on this but had no luck.

Yes, for applications built on .NET Framework 4.x and earlier, work on WPF in Wine Mono is ongoing. Installing .NET Framework can also work.

WPF applications built on .NET Core or .NET Framework 5.x should work fine.

To my knowledge, no one is working on adding native Linux support to WPF. It seems .NET Core is hoping to fill this demand with MAUI:
