For Hackers

If you want to control everything by yourself, for example, open multiple WeChat PC client on your desktop; then, you might want to inspect the dochat.sh in our repository and try the following docker command:

docker run \
  --name DoChat \
  --rm \
  -i \
  \
  -v "$HOME/DoChat/WeChat Files/":'/home/user/WeChat Files/' \
  -v "$HOME/DoChat/Applcation Data":'/home/user/.wine/drive_c/users/user/Application Data/' \
  -v /tmp/.X11-unix:/tmp/.X11-unix \
  \
  -e DISPLAY \
  \
  -e XMODIFIERS=@im=fcitx \
  -e GTK_IM_MODULE=fcitx \
  -e QT_IM_MODULE=fcitx \
  -e GID="$(id -g)" \
  -e UID="$(id -u)" \
  \
  --ipc=host \
  --privileged \
  \
  zixia/wechat

Modify it whatever you want to fulfill your needs.

Versioning

The docker image has two schema of the versioning:

  1. X.Y.Z.a: This is for the WeChat PC Windows Client version
    1. zixia/wechat:2.7.1.85: WeChat 2.7.1.85
    2. zixia/wechat:2.8.0.112: WeChat 2.8.0.112
  2. x.y: This is for the docker image version.
    1. zixia/wechat:0.2: docker-wechat version 0.2

The two version schema may overlap with each other.

For example: the zixia/wechat:0.2 may be the same image as the zixia/wechat:2.8.0.112.

Known Issues

  • WeChat 2.8.0.x can not send big images/files (#341)
    • Work around: use 2.7.1.85 instead. (DOCHAT_WECHAT_VERSION=2.7.1.85)
  • In-WeChat Browser does not work (#2)

To-do List

  • Permanent Storage for WeChat PC Login Data Information (#3)
  • Automatically install WeChat PC from .EXE installer when building the Dockerfile. (Test Automation tools might be needed)
  • Monitor WeChat PC version publications so that we can publish the same version number of the docker image with it.

FAQ

System Tray Icon with Gnome Desktop

Install Gnome Extension: Top Icons Plus Git by bijignome

Note 1: there's almost half dozen of the TopIcons extensions with very similar name: TopIcons, TopIcons Redux, TopIcons Plus, TopIcons Plus Git, TopIconsFix. Use TopIcons Plus Git, it's the right one.

Note 2: The TopIcons Plus has the bug that cause the wine itself shows a window on your desktop. (#19)

Exit with code 5 on openSUSE Leap

When you encounter problem that the app exit with code 5 on openSUSE Leap, you need to disable X server access control to allow any user to connect to the X server before you start the app. Use below command to disable it:

$ xhost +

No main window after start up with 2 or more monitor setup

This could be caused by an old bug in wine with multiple monitor setup. Workaround is to start it up with single monitor and then switch to multiple monitors

This behavior may cause the view disappear when you use the Join Displays mode, so you need change the mode to mirrors when the app start, this script may help:

#bin/bash
xrandr --output HDMI-1-2 --same-as eDP-1-1
DOCHAT_SKIP_PULL=true /home/yuhui/App/wechat/dochat.sh &
sleep 5
xrandr --output HDMI-1-2 --right-of eDP-1-1

Change the HDMI-1-2 to your external display name and eDP-1-1 to your built in display name. Display more than two, link to this.
Notice: you must drag the login dialog to built in display side when the process sleep 5, otherwise the view may stuck in the external display.
