Wine taskbar not appearing on virtual desktop

Post by uvas » Fri Apr 16, 2021 8:42 am

I remember years ago, when you had wine running via a virtual desktop you had a wine task bar. Did it change recently? If not, how do I get it to show when using a virtual desktop?

Right now I'm using wine-staging 6.6, but it wasn't appearing on previous versions like 6.5 and 6.4. Haven't checked older versions than that.

By default, it only shows up when there is a systray icon.

It can be enabled in other virtual desktops using the EnableShell registry key (see https://wiki.winehq.org/Useful_Registry_Keys) or by running 'wine explorer /desktop=shell'.
