Wine CD Check


First of all: No, there is no "No Cd" patch!

I installed FinalDraft with Wine. Starts fine but is unable to find it's CD and therefor only works in demo mode.
I mounted the CDROM in the dosdevices directory, but still no luck.
Here's my Wine Config. any ideas would be much apreciated, as there is NO professional screenwriting software available for Linux!!!

Thanks!

Oh but there is

Use TeX (and LaTeX its, in my opinion, superior brother), it's by far the best typesetting program (it's actually a language, I've never used/seen a GUI for it, but there might be some on google) I looked for you, this is the first match:
http://white.iwd.uni-bremen.de/xtem/
No clue how good it is, I'm sure there are dozens more (Literally almost every math book is written in TeX, along with thousands and tens of thousands of non-math books are typeset in it).
The language is very very low-key to begin with, you'll get the hang of it in a few hours easily.

As for your issue, look at man wine, and in the winedebug section, you'll note how to enable it. Check what the error is, and if you don't like TeX, post it up and we'll try to help

What do you mean by no GUI? You mean you guys write sciencebooks in the terminal window???
Uhm, thanks but that sounds like "you need a typewriter? Go to the hardwarestore and buy some nuts & bolts....it's really easy to build one yourself!"

I'll try man wine

I've written everything from articles to stories, to my math homework in TeX.
Once you get used to it, it beats any GUI. I can just type out the TeX code as I solve my homework, no more need for paper, couldn't do that with a GUI. Between clicking all over I'd forget what I was doing.

I'm sure there are GUIs for it though I wouldn't bother with them.
TeX is a programming language for all intensive purposes, and I usually use emacs not an xterm

5.5. Disc Drives, Serial and Parallel Ports
5.5.1. Extremely Important Prerequisites

If you're planning to include access to a CD-ROM drive in your Wine configuration on Linux, then make sure to add the "unhide" mount option to the CD-ROM file system entry in /etc/fstab, e.g.:

/dev/cdrom /cdrom iso9660 ro,noauto,users,unhide 0 0

Several Windows program setup CD-ROMs or other CD-ROMs chose to do such braindamaged things as marking very important setup helper files on the CD-ROM as "hidden". That's no problem on Windows, since the Windows CD-ROM driver by default displays even files that are supposed to be "hidden". But on Linux, which chose to hide "hidden" files on CD by default, this is FATAL! (the programs will simply abort with an "installation file not found" or similar error) Thus you should never forget to add this setting.
If you read further down in the users guide it tells you how to link the cdrom in the ~/.wine/dosdevices directory. Suppose you mount your cdrom at /mnt/cdrom and that the physical device is /dev/hdc, this is what you would need to do.

cd ~/.wine/dosdevices
ln -s /mnt/cdrom d:
ln -s /dev/hdc d::

You might also try adding the drive to the path in the wine config file.
"Path" = "c:\\windows;c:\\windows\\system;d:\\"

Uh...just realized that I'm actually not sure what my cdroms "Physical drive" is...lol
In dev I have no other hd* listed, but I do have: cdrom, cdwrite & sbpcd (which I read could be the cdrom running under SCSI emulation?)
So, maybe I mounted the wrong device in wine?
Hell, I know this is going to be moved to the noob sector soon, but anyone can tell me how to list my physical devices so that I know what is what?

Thx

Try this:
ls -l /dev/cdrom
That should be a symlink which points to the cd device.

Also this might help.
dmesg|grep -i cd[r\/]

cat /etc/fstab and look for cdrom there too.
