xx How to run liberty with wine?
« Thread started on: Mar 24th, 2017, 2:12pm »

Just made the move from Windows to Ubuntu 16.10 64 bit, but haven't yet figured out how to run LB on the new system. Still pretty new to linux. There was an included version of wine with the installed software, but either it won't play nice with LB or, more likely, I'm just not doing something right. Any advice on which wine to use and how to do it would be much appreciated.

I run LB and JB on Linux under Wine, have done for several years, and don't touch Windows for months on end. The LB installer should 'just run' and the only thing to watch for is that Ubuntu has different fonts to those expected as standard in Windows.
Click the LB installer and let us know if it didn't install!

Thanks Tenochtitlanuk. I got it to run. Kind of a round-about way, but it works. My main project will be communicating with an arduino via usb. A few years ago I wrote a LB program to control a CNC router via the parallel printer port. But with its demise, I will try to use an arduino on a usb to work the stepper controllers. Thanks again for the help.
