Wine menus appear and disappear with the Glide 2 effect. This looks good for dialogs but not so good for menus. I would make a custom rule to apply fade in/fade out instead, but I don't know the window type for wine menus. I've tried using xwininfo but there is no way to select the wine menu with it.

It is possible, you just need to find the type of window that the wine window is and add a new animation that only matches these windows. – RolandiXor Feb 26 '11 at 17:57
Sorry I didn't make my question clearer but my problem is exactly that I don't know the window type, and I can't even use xwininfo to get it. I've edited my question to make it clearer now. – sashoalm Feb 27 '11 at 6:31
Shouldn't this be a wine bug? If wine correctly identifies windows, then this wouldn't happening. – user18843 May 29 '11 at 5:23

The reason you don't get the normal menu effect is because there is no way to tell these are menu windows. There is no way I know of to identify them separately from any other WINE window or Ubuntu would already be doing so. :)
