Macromedia


Do Macromedia not do a version of MX Studio or Dreamweaver in Linux? I know can get MX for Mac OS.

Nope it appears not.

But if you go to this page you can add your name to a petition to ask Macromedia to create a Linux version.

I have downloaded that file you need to get Dreamweaver working (DCOM95). It say you need to type 'wine -dll ole32=n dcom95.exe' to install it but when I type this into a command shell it says 'bash: wine: command not found' I know it isn't a spelling mistake because it was copy pasted straight from the site. Could it be that wine is a program I have to install before I try and install Dreamweaver?

Thanks, Heartagram.

I did 'apt-get install wine' it installed something so im asuming that it was wine. Now when I type 'wine -dll ole32=n dcom95.exe' it gives me the following error...
'No configuration file detected.
Invoking /usr/bin/wine.bin -dll ole32=n dcom95.exe ...
wine: cannot open /root/.wine : No such file or directory
Wine failed with return code 1'

Do I need to change some settings manually?

well first you don't install stuff with wine as the root user.......thats why the folder .wine doesn't exist, and if it doesn't exist in your /home/USER/ folder, then you'll have to make this folder...and the contents of this folder should hold a directory structure of a windows drive (hence the fake windows) with directorys such as Windows, Program Files, etc, etc...also in the root of the .wine folder you will have your wine config file...you'll have to set this up before you can install anything...

So basically I will have to create a directory like windows in home/user?
When you say " with directorys such as Windows, Program Files, etc, etc..." Do I need any others besides the following, Windows, Program Files, Documents and Settings? Is there any inthere which I don't need? Do they need to have any files in them or just empty directories?

well basically its going to be for the lack of better terms a fake windows 98 directory so instead of documents and settings it will be my documents....but other than them three you mentioned, no there is no others, other than the subdirectorys in the windows folder...such as system, system32....but instead of sitting here an naming the folders you need to have in your fake drive, you will go and get a program called winetools and use it after you install wine to set up a fake windows drive automatically for you won't have to worry about setting the directory structure by yourself ....your fake drive will then have a location of:
/home/USER/.wine/c

Right, so I want to go back to www.winehq.com and install wine in a different way? appose to 'apt-get install wine'. Does this mean I will have to un-install the previous installation of wine? As you can probably tell im a newbie to Linux, I only lost my Linux virginity a week or two ago so im still getting used to the way it works so excuse me if I ask any dumb questions since I've been a humble Windoze user for ages.

you can install wine however you wish, whether it be from tarball or from apt-get ... as long as it gets installed...and if you say wine is already installed, no you don't have to uninstall and re-install another version, that just means half the battle is done , just have to make sure you have a fake windows drive, where as i already told you just get winetools to do that for you, and if you look down below my post in my sig you'll notice my second link called frankscorner, where you can go and get winetools...

Is this the actually command "untar winetools-1.24.tgz in /usr/bin" or just an explination of what you have to do?
