can't close a tab, files don't download unless bypass filter

While it isn't officially supported, we have many users who successfully run NewsBin under Linux with a Windows emulator (Wine is the most popular). This forum exists for you Linux guys to share your experience getting NewsBin running on Linux as well as report any strangeness that we may or may not be able to fix. DThor is the resident expert.

can't close a tab, files don't download unless bypass filter

Postby okoolo » Sun Jun 26, 2011 10:02 am

system: slackware current, wine 1.3.2, newsbin 5.59, kernel 2.6.35.4

2 issues:

1) can't close tabs using the close button on the right side
2) when I try to download any posts (filters disabled) they are automatically sent to failed posts unless I select the bypass filters option

I have no idea what to tell you for #1. I assume there's something wrong with your Wine.

For #2, look in the logging tab and see why they're getting rejected.

There are various GUI issues with wine, for the most part a recent build will handle Newsbin enough to run reasonably. Lots of 'little ' issues though. I'm running 1.3.12 on SUSE 11.4 and I haven't seen #1 particularly, possibly it's a new wine bug. Understand that Newsbin is built for windows, you get wine usage 'for free, as is'. If wine is doing something windows isn't, it's a wine team issue.

That #2 thing is likely completely unrelated to wine, though, likely something's up with your newsbin config. Try renaming your signature.db3 file.
