All about K-Meleon under Linux using wine.
[quote=rodocop] Quirk of fate I had to run Puppy Linux for some days. [b]Good news:[/b] Puppy is easy, lightweight, but powerful and flexible distro which could be easily dual-booted with Windows (best option is XP) almost without special knowledge. [b]More good:[/b] Wine is easily installable into Puppy and it handles most of needed WinWare. Even portable. And I'd run my KM Twin there! It works after installing Wine and mounting drive where your portable working folder lies. Only thing you need is to go through procedure of 'Open with' command and associate there exe-files with Wine to be executed (very similar to the same Windows procedure). K-Meleon loads and works with the state you live it in Windows (loads prefs.js correctly). All menus and macros (as far as I can see) are working too. [b]Bad news:[/b] I have some functions missing while browsing - no scrolling with mouse wheel, no entering into forums, some glitches with surfing by links. This makes KM fairly unusable, but what I'm not sure about is MS VisualC++. I haven't installed this once again under Wine (it has it's own simulated [i]Windows/System32[/i] folder) and I think if I would do so, KM may become fully functional. Now I've repaired my Win bootloader, so I returned to the sweet MS home :D. Next time I would try Puppy (it's now at a distance of one reboot from me everytime!) I'll experiment with these libraries installation and report the results.[/quote]
