A few people experienced issues with the previous testing release and there were indeed a few show stopping issues, so let’s bring on the bug fix release!
Fixed in pre10:
The PPA is updating right now and as usual the updates are available here as well:
python-wine pre10 and vineyard pre10
As always, remember to install both packages if you’re installing them manually (using the PPA should update both automatically).
hey.. any thoughts on when you’ll be adding natty to the ppa? I manually dl’d the packages and installed them, but ./vineyard-preferences just hangs .. too bad, I think vineyard is a great app (used it on another machine of mine that runs maverick.. no dice on natty, though)
There was a bug in PyGtk that kept Vineyard from running on Natty, but since I’ve worked around that now, the next version will also have a Natty release. Thanks for reminding me.
See if there is a way to make Direct2Drive games register properly.
There are many people who have D2D titles and cannot make the switch to Linux completely because of it.
I don’t have any experience with Direct2Drive, but I’m on their site now looking for their client – we’ll see how it goes
Well, seeing that they don’t have any free games for download and the cheapest is more than I want to give for something I wont play (and for a platform I don’t support), I don’t really have a way to test how it works.
Do you think you can open a bug report on this issue describing what you’d like to see and some technical details (possibly directly to me on email if they are sensitive), like a listing of the wine C drive (ls -R $WINEPREFIX/drive_c) after installation and a dump of the registry (wine regedit -E dump.reg).
I can’t get it to work.
I’ve used the testing ppa and when I try to start it, nothing happens. I am using Linux Mint 10
Gtk-Message: (for origin information, set GTK_DEBUG): failed to retrieve property `GtkWidget::link-color’ of type `GdkColor’ from rc file value “((GString*) 0×2489380)” of type `GString’

That’s unfortunately a known bug in this release.
The good news is that it’s already been fixed, the bad news is that that fix hasn’t been released as a package yet.
I’m finishing up the next release right now actually, but there are a few more (quick) things I want to add before it’s released.
You can try to run the version in trunk if you want, it works – instructions are at the bottom of the Download page.
UPDATE: The fixed version has been released.
