Flickering BaaN Client on Linux Machine – Wine not a culprit ..


Clients running Baan Clients on Linux M/C often had a complaint of flickering of BaaN screen and concluding wine a culprit. But “Wine” has nothing to do with it.

The flickering problem is not due to wine, its probably because of your display drivers or display adapter.

Try a small test to confirm the same.

Run ‘xrandr’ from a console, If you get a black screen for a moment then this might not be a Wine bug , but a problem is with the video card driver.

There is a workaround to this issue:

1. Start Wine’s Registry Editor
2. Navigate to “HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\X11 Driver”. You
may need to create X11 Driver.
3. Create a new key called “UseXRandR” and set it to “N”.

That should prevent Wine from using XRandR stop flickering.
