Cad


I would like to see Autocad for linux not with wine, of course. I think linux misses a really good cad software like autocad

More of the same...

Like a lot of people here, I'd like to see SPSS (or PASW statistics, I think it's the same thing under a different name) ported over.

Also, would like to see commercial games generally released for linux, you'd think there would be an obvious target market for things like Elder Scrolls etc. I'm running on a laptop so don't generally have the resources to run a virtual machine for these.

Finally, and what would make the most difference to me, iTunes. I bought a lot of my music on the iTunes store several years ago when I was still using Windows as my main OS and as a result I can't play DRM files in Linux (although not all of the tracks are DRM). Probably good reasons for this but still, would be nice to have some support, especially since fewer users of Windows must be good for Apple, even if they're using Linux.

Post Itunes for linux

As far as porting is concerned, i wouldn't mind itunes on linux. I have tried, but itunes never launches. I personaly never tried it, but i guess if you treat a mac application as a folder,(right-click, show package contents,) eventually you will find a terminal executable file,
(in the MacOS folder,) but i have never tried to run it in linux, For fear of some grotesque crossover issue, but, if it is terminal, it just might run.

If you're only interested in adding/removing your own music from your iPod, I suggest trying gtkpod. Personally, I redeem free songs from Starbucks on the iTunes Store and, unfortunately, you need iTunes for that. The iTunes 10 installer on Playonlinux works well.

Rosetta Stone, I had a quick look and it didn't work. Maybe I have to look for it with more time?

I've ran it in WINE. Just tried it again for the first time in long while and it ran just fine.

A 64-bit version of Adobe Reader would be nice.

Well probably most of have to use Windows for one reason or another, it would be simpler to find out what linux programs you would want to have ported to Windows

Are you kidding?

Ghostscript
xpdf
evince
kpdf
Okular
epdfview
mupdf
gspdf
ggv
gpdf
pdftk
pdfmerge
etc.....

Runs well under wine
Sumatra (light .pdf reader)
PdfXCview (.pdf editor)
Foxit reader
etc.....

I think that you can use a wrapper for the 32 bit Adobe plugin

I like Adobe's reader plugin functionality (i.e. Reading PDF's inline in the browser). I haven't extensively researched alternatives though.

Post Program most wanted to see ported

Hello--
The program I would like to see ported is called File Commander... I use it to update my portable hard drive with the current contents of 'My Documents'... It works very well and is written by Emil Fickel at www.efsoftware.com. It is the onlu program I use to update the contents of my portable drive.

A simple shell script will do that.

Use your own parameters such as cifs and share names. This is a quick example. There are many ways to keep a folder updated. Like rsync for example.

Code:
#!/bin/bash

xterm -T "Update Drive" -fg black -bg yellow -e sudo mount -t smbfs //machine_name/share /home/user_name/share && / 
sleep 10 && / 
cp -nR "/folder/to/copy/" "/destination/folder" && /
xterm -fg white -bg green -e sudo umount /home/user_name/share && sleep 10
Copy that into a text editor and save it as something like sync.sh
Then make sync.sh executable
Run it with ./sync.sh

That will lauch xterm, ask you for sudo password, mount the share where you tell it, copy the files, launch xterm again, ask for sudo password to unmount the share.

Look at
man cp
-nR no clobber recursive

man xterm
-e sudo runs an appliaction, allows you to enter sudo password

/folder/to/copy/
The trailing slash gets the only contents of the directory.

You could also put that into a cron job to do it automatically
