Using Windows Oribter downloaded via Web Admin via WINE on linux
« on: November 18, 2008, 08:52:50 am »
Hi All,

Yesterday i was playing around with Wine on linux (http://winehq.com) and tried to install the windows orbiter, with many luck i managed to install it and use it on linux ( check attached screenshot )

If you want to try it you have to use the wine version from the site http://winehq.com , not the versions from the repo's .


Have fun,

Dave

Yup, this is how i've tested various orbiter layouts before I finished PadOrbiter.

you can also use compile the linux orbiter and run it in a seperate X session (it is fullscreen).

it's in our svn:

http://svn.linuxmce.org/svn/trunk/

in src/Orbiter

The 0710 release is here:

http://svn.linuxmce.org/svn/branches/LinuxMCE-0710

I put the branch for the 0710 release there because you can't mismatch them.
