    Default Linux Ubuntu 9.04 with Vixen

    Here is my tests so far for trying to get Vixen to run under Linux.

    I'm testing the WINE route at this point as its the most painless method I know of at this time.

    Use this option for easy installation of .NET 2.0 Framework. Winetricks will take care of all needed installation prerequisites and work around some problems.

    $ wget http://kegel.com/wine/winetricks
    $ sh winetricks corefonts dotnet20

    Vixen appears to work fine so far as I created a typical sequence.

    Only snag found so are is COM PORTS.. they are not detected at this point.

    More to follow.
    Cheers!

    I am also interested in running vixen on a linux machine, it would be nice to have a much more reliable OS installed on the machine.

    Next step- COM PORTS and outputs.

    While I am only interested in Serial and Com for my Ren's and Grinch, I'll leave it up to others to assist with settings for other plugins.

    Adjustable preview -WORKS but have not added an image yet
    Generic Serial -WORKS but no output confirmation yet.
    Renard (modified) -NO WORKING, cannot select ports and other options in its setup, Could be my font packages.

    LPT for Grinch.. not tested yet



    No issues with sound yet.. my default AC97 linux version driver handles the music well, as well with my Transmitter audio

    Does NOT like cut and paste in the sequence creation routine.


    More on this later.. need to get some of the other stuff done first


    This so far shows some promise for the Linux crowd

    Oh good, I'll be able to use my oldest, slowest computer to run the show and it will still outperform Windows!
