Question help with WINE and using Lovense USB products on Linux


**This post is requesting help with WINE and using Lovense USB products on Linux. Lovense is an interactive sex toy I use for my job, so please be respectful and only reply if you want to offer tech help. xo thanks.

Ok, so I have been trying to use Wine for the first time and I'm running into trouble. I managed to successfully install Wine via Ubuntu's software bank. Wine's C: drive has been created as well. I even managed to install the Lovense browser 'Lovense_Browser.exe' file with 0 error messages. This is only one of 3 apps I need to run in Wine, but they are all part of the Lovense suite.

When I double click the desktop icon (for the 'L' browser) the mouse spins like it's waiting on something, then does nothing. When I try to run it in the terminal via 'wine file.exe' in the Downloads folder where I put it all, it sends back this error after installing fully and asking me if I want to auto launch:

2018-12-28 14:22:56,433 INFO IsUserLoggedIn = false

If anyone can help with this, please do.

I have no any idea about that device and that browser. But in general: you need to check if the usb device is available from wine. You need to check if this exe requires a user and how should you specify it. Probably you can increase debug level and it will reply more. Did you try the usual /? switch? Do you have any documentation about the usage?

Ok, thanks. The browser is just Chrome with an extension already downloaded and enabled, so it's just Chrome. Shouldn't require a user or anything it didn't require when I installed Chrome on Linux normally. The Lovense app/Remote app may be another story, and I haven't tried to install either of those yet. I'm not super experienced in this area, and I'm new to Linux in general. How do you do the quoted bit above? Specifically, what does 'Did you try the usual /? switch?' mean? I can try to check into the documentation. The product site offers 0 support for Linux, unfortunately.

** edit: I have since installed and launched the Connect app and the Remote app. Both failed and WINE put up an error report, but it was very very long. Would it help to post that here or no?

You have got to luv the web. This seems to be an actively maintained project to support Lovense toys on Linux.

Ha! I found that as well. I visited one of their support forums [https://metafetish.club/t/help-linux...al-info/515/4]. Apparently. buttplug.io is a library developers can use to write an app LIKE Lovense Connect. It isn't an application itself, sadly.

Hey, sorry it took me so long to reply. I have seen this, and gone through the tutorial. It just sort of walks me up to the point of tethering the toy to my PC. It made my toy show up as a device on my BT manager in Ubuntu, but it didn't want to tether. I'll mess with it again and see if it will tether, but I don't know how it will communicate to the Lovense extension on my browser. Will have to get back to you on that one.

* I had some friends over yesterday and they advised me to drop Wine altogether, saying that it was still an emulator despite the acronym. They recommended dual booting instead. Someone else recommended using Oracle VirtualBox or VMware Player. Thoughts?
