I get subliminal messages all the time, though I never notice.

Subliminals

I'm trying to get a m program that can on linux. I think the problem with running the windows versions under wine is some problem with translucency so the messages don't pop up even though the programs run.

m both run, but on the console wine just keeps spitting out some alphablend error.

mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm mmmmmmmmmmm

My guess is you're probably right; since windows are transparent, attempting to view them within wine, or the bottles that typically store it, would naturally be futile. I'd recommend a cheap white, except those tend to be contained in boxes. For transparency of wine & container, try a light dessert variety, or champagne.

Looking at the maker of subliminal's webpage, I'm not aware of any software for Linux that does this.

To be honest, most people probably aren't that interested in making software like this for Linux

Subliminal Messages in Linux

This one is supposed to work on Linux, but I couldn't get it to. Maybe you will have more luck:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/subliminal-msgs/

However, I was able to get "Subliminal Blaster" to run under Wine, with Compiz running. It works great. I am happy
