I assume that Wine don't fully (at least for my H/W config) support Windows call SetLayeredWindowAttributes which is used by PortableApps

I don't have any idea if there is a very complex issue behind (lack of driver support) or if PortableApps could easily workaround this call by a more reliable API

thanks

The StartPortableApps.exe

The StartPortableApps.exe program just starts PortableApps/PortableAppsMenu/PortableAppsMenu.exe -- maybe you could have Wine start that itself.

I don't know if that would make a difference, but it would at least remove one layer of complexity.

The other question is whether you have tried it with the more recent beta, which has been stable for some time: https://portableapps.com/node/8450

Trying it with them might not do anything but show that the problem is still there, but that's something.

The PAM is a "notification tray" application. How does Wine do with that sort of thing?

While you are experimenting, you might want to try some of the actual portable apps, e.g. ./PortableApps/[Something]Portable/[Something]Portable.exe . It might be good to know which ones work and which don't. There's no compelling reason why you couldn't start them directly instead of from PAM, if it is only PAM that fails and not the actual programs themselves.

Portable Apps 1.1 Beta 4 with wine & ubuntu

see my https://portableapps.com/node/12466 for version detail

To answer to your question:
- Wine manage well the icon tray in the ubuntu icon area
- I don't have any more display issue (fontsize, display area with oversized black backround) but error message (command line start) seems to be the same

Ignore / GTK / Forum Error Reports Unnecessary

You should just ignore errors in the Wine console (especially minor stuff like SetLayeredWindowAttributes) as most apps will have errors of some sort. Wine recovers from stuff it doesn't now how to do quite well.

No GTK-based apps (Pidgin, GIMP, GnuCash) are currently listed as Wine compatible. I didn't even know Wine was able to run them now. Last I checked, it failed to launch them.

There is no need to report error messages or other Wine findings in the forums here unless you find an app we list as compatible failing... or an app we don't currently list as compatible that works.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
