You mean this stuff:

Try this:
http://www.winehq.com/pipermail/wine...ry/017031.html

Of course, you can use rosetta online with a shockwave enabled browser?
There's a linux version of rosetta?

What do you mean "It won't work at all". You need to be more specific, like giving details of what you are trying to do and what error messages you are getting. I used Rosetta Stone under wine without any problem under Ubuntu.

Unhappy

Let me try to revive this thread.

I, too, am trying to run Rosetta Stone under Wine. It installs, apparently flawlessly, under Wine on Ubuntu Feisty Fawn. However, the sound stutters badly, so badly as to make the software unusable.

I've tried using different sound drivers -- ALSA, ESD, OSS -- with hardware acceleration or emulation, and still the same results: stuttering.

I run Fallout 2 under the same Wine installation, with normal sound (ALSA with hardware and driver emulation).



Any ideas?

Try using wine under a stable version of Ubuntu.

Well, yes, I could do that. Or I could try using it under Sid, or Sarge, or Fedora, or any of many other options. Rather than use up many additional hours on those options, what I'm looking for is a known-good solution, preferably someone else who has run Rosetta Stone with good sound under a Debian-like distro.

See, my main distro is etch. The current version of Wine in the etch repos won't run in my install at all, apparently because of a conflict with Scim, which I need. I was trying the most current version of Ubuntu, hoping that it would include a more current version of Wine, that had fixed the Scim problem. And it does. And that version of Wine will run stuff. Just not all the stuff I need, apparently.

Yes, I could install Edgy, but before I do, I'm trying to get some idea of whether it will solve the problem.

The point is that the sound problems with wine/rosetta in feisty may be due to an instability in this feisty development release. Combinations of applications, like this are not expected to work well. You are, after all, using beta software on a pre-release operating system.

Note: post #2 links to someone who has got rosetta working properly in debian.

Looking specifically at feisty ... I note there has been a great deal of success running rosetta under virtualisation, with VMWare being the favorite. WINE experience seems to be spotty, with sound being the number one problem.

Thumbs up

Just to get some closure on this issue:

Rosetta Stone had the same sound glitching problems under Feisty, and on Win2K running under VirtualBox.

However, the problem seems to be resolved under Gutsy, running Wine 0.9.46. Sound is as good as under native Win2K. I've got Wine audio configured for ALSA, Basic hardware acceleration, 22050 sample rate, 16 bits per sample, emulated driver.

So, case closed for now.

RosettaStone Online in Linux

I have the "online" version of RosettaStone. It works natively in Linux without audio input using Firefox and flash.

I have been able to get the audio input/microphone working by installing the Windows version of Firefox through wine and then downloading and installing the flash plugin and RosettaStone voice input software.

Thus far all looks great and is working with no noticeable delay. I had one screen where voice input did not work, but I have thus far been unable to reproduce the error.

Firefox version 3.0
Ubuntu 8.04 (hardy)
Wine (0.9.59)
