Description of problem:
Starting with wine 0.9.44 beryl window manager no longer draws any window
decorations on wine windows. According to the wine Bugzilla they consider this a
bug in beryl/compiz.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. update to wine >0.9.44
2. start any wine program
No window decorations drawn on wine windows
Window decorations also drawn on wine windows
Beryl is basically dead following the beryl/compiz re-merger and the birth of
compiz-fusion, and I've not got the cycles myself to spend time back-porting
fixes from compiz-fusion. That being the case, I'm afraid the beryl packages
aren't going to be fixed unless someone else really wants to put forth the
effort to port stuff from compiz-fusion (dunno if the problem exists there or
not, wine bugzilla comment would suggest it does).
So for now, the options are CLOSED->WONTFIX, some other interested party taking
on the bug, or reassigning it to compiz... Feel free to voice your preferences
and we can proceed accordingly. If nobody speaks up, it'll be option #1 though. :)
I installed the F8 compiz-* RPMs on my F7 box. After I convinced compiz to draw
window decorations I verified that wine 0.9.45 windows have window decorations
under this new compiz version.
So it is WONTFIX for F7/beryl and works OK for F8/compiz.
