Tiny yet strange issue:

enter image description here

In the list of files/folders, notepad++ running in Wine completely ignores the last character. Other than that it works perfectly under Wine, so this is very strange to me. Also a quick google didn't yield any other people with this issue...

It started to get really annoying in a folder where all my html files have a number in the name, at the end.

Versions:

  • Notepad++: v5.9.3. (downloaded from the official website, followed an irretrievable guide to install)
  • Wine: 1.2.2.

can you confirm where you downloaded notepad++ from? also what version of wine are you using? –  fossfreedom Aug 22 '11 at 21:26
    
I updated the post with version details. Do you think reinstalling Notepad++ would help? –  joon Aug 22 '11 at 22:11

possibly - did you use the installer or just run the exe extracted from the zip? –  fossfreedom Aug 22 '11 at 22:16
    
I installed it. –  joon Aug 22 '11 at 22:29

Possibly a corruption in your wine install.

To test this, temporarily move your current wine folder to a backup and recreate a new wine folder

mv ~/.wine ~/.wine_backup
winecfg

then reinstall notepad++

wine npp.5.9.3.Installer.exe

If the same problem occurs, remove the new folder and rename back the old folder

rm -rf ~/.wine
mv ~/.wine_backup ~/.wine

Note - I've tested notepad 5.9.3 using wine version 1.3.26 and it works perfectly.
