SDB:ChemSketch with wine
The clean solution is to run a start up line like
wine start /MAX 'C:\Program Files\ACD\CHEMSK.EXE which forces the window size and then adjust the size of the ChemSketch drawing document. You have to save a *.mol file to disk and reopen it with SHOW3D.EXE to get 3D molecular displays.
The following shell script corrects for the issues of having minimised programs all over the place that would otherwise muck things up and makes things run smoothly from the Kickoff Application launcher
