Kmelon fails to work properly

Post by Tardisusers21 » Mon Mar 29, 2021 5:28 am

I am trying to run the K-Melon web browser on AntiX Linux on my HP Pavillion ZE4200 and the web browser does not fully work and shows a black screen (as seen here https://ibb.co/Jjp2F3H) on any web page. I do know that it does work since it works on my other PC but it doesn't seem to want to here. I think I am using Wine 6.2. Any help would be great.

Which version of K-Meleon do you use?The one with the Goanna engine (76) or the one with the Gecko engine (75.1)?

The 76 version works better for me if I turn off DirectX 11 with:

Code: Select all

WINEDLLOVERRIDES=dxgi=d k-meleon.exe

I tried typing your code into the command line and it said "k-melon.exe command not found" so I turned dx11 off from the wine config using "Wine Configuration, Libraries Tab,
Type: d3dx11, Click Add, Click Edit, Set to Disable." and I still have the same issue. (and it is K-melon 76)

:oops: I made a mistake in the command. This should be:

Code: Select all

WINEDLLOVERRIDES=dxgi=d wine k-meleon.exe

it seems like i have to keep running the command for it to work properly. Is there a way for it to automatically do it?

it took ages for my posts to be approved by a moderator which is why it took so long for the reply but I don't think a mod needs to approve them now which is good

You can make a DLL override in winecfg → Libraries → "New override for library" → Select dxgi → Add → Edit → Disable

@Tardisusers21

You can also disable dxgi.dll directly with the following terminal command:

Code: Select all

wine reg.exe ADD "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\DllOverrides" "/v" "dxgi" "/t" "REG_SZ" "/d" ""
