Note that Wine 5.16 appears to have broken the SimSig window layout.

In what way? A screenshot might help.

Here's the screenshot.


The main view appears in the corner, and even if you resize or move it, it goes back to the corner once you scroll.

There was an update to WINE a few months (years?) ago that did something vaguely similar. It turned out to be a bug in WINE that eventually got fixed. Not sure there is anything I can do.

I bisected it to the following commit in Wine: https://source.winehq.org/git/wine.git/commit/c5ec1585f6e5211a2b63e3435748210552250534

Apparently SimSig was broken by a one-line (!) change to accommodate full screen windows (which SimSig is not using) on KWin (a window manager that I am not using.)

Bug created on the Wine bugzilla: https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=49779

By the way, please split this thread from kbarber's internet connectivity problems which are unrelated to this graphical issue.

Thanks for this. I have a suggestion on another forum (haven't had time to try it yet) that 5.15 or 5.16 (devel versions, apparently - not sure my dinosaur brain does clever stuff like that) may be what I need. Clearly I need to stick to 5.15 when I try it out... thanks for th eheads up.

I think the most convenient way to get a development edition is to get the pre-built packages from the repository for Ubuntu. If you add that to your system, you will get 5.16 but the older versions are still online, so you can manually install these packages instead of adding the repository.

Assuming you use Ubuntu 20.04 (according to your thread on the Wine forum which I accidentally came across yesterday), I have looked up the packages for 5.15:

wine-devel-i386
wine-devel-amd64
wine-devel

Please remove your existing Wine and then install them in this order ^

Reason: order of packages changed

I have received a reply on the bug I entered and it appears to be specific to the Cinnamon desktop environment.
