Hi,

Planning a trip to the land down under and not all that interested in the TSA copying my worki hard drive; to that end I picked up a spare drive and installed Ubuntu 8.04 on my Dell D830 laptop. The first install went pretty smoothly but I was having wireless problems so I found, downloaded and installed the Dell branded version which didn't get me much further with respect to wireless. Post fixing the wireless problem, the only thing I really cared about running was TM.
To that end, I installed Wine using the Wine site recommened path which is essentially a development version.
Post that I ran the standard TM install and 1.5 to 1.6 patch; transferred my addons and it worked. I still need to see what I can do about resolution which is 640 x 480 at present but, it works and I though folks might be interested to know.

Hey Killier? What do you think of your display utility running under Wine?

It needs .Net 2.0 and Direct X, if you have those covered, it would run. :)

The last thread I saw about this was using CrossOver Office. I never saw that thread.
