My beloved Playonlinux Apps

Postby bester69 » 2016-11-20 04:53

I created several ext4-file-containers for each app, so i can back/restore them easily and faster,

The wonderfull thing about playonlinux (wine) is that you can keep using the win apps in all your linuxs for ever.

My always keeped Windows applications---
- 7z Compressor --> Working Gold
- AutoCad 2005 --> Working Gold
- Firefox (mode Win) --> Working Gold
- Acrobat 11 --> Working Platinum
- Google Earth 6 --> Working Gold
- Picasa 3.9 --> Working Gold
- Office 2010 --> Working Platinum
- AbbyFinereader 10 --> Working Platinum
- Swat4 Game --> Working Gold
- TextAloudMP3 --> Working Gold
- Bit_Che (torrent searcher) --> Working Platinum


They mount in fstab:

Dont understand the purpose of running Win Firefox on Linux.

Totally baffled, actually.

Understand that Wine *can* be infected, just like Win.

hehe, sometimes i need to browse in mode windows so the web server give me the windows download, and not the linux one.

Wine infected its no problem, its a isolate layout.. anyway i dont bother to work in a enviroment infected as long as it's just a tool it gives me what i need, i know once its closed the virus goes to sleep. :mrgreen:

We all know there're no virus in linux, tha's a myths they keep saying, but the trusth is none knows anybody has ever gotten infected..., but trolls keep saying otherwise.. In real life Linux has no virus!!, repeat with me!

hehe, Virus are like UFO's they say they exist, but you know..

Fool the site with a user agent spoof, then. There's extensions for that.

I just employ a user agent add-on in firefox for that.

I don't see the point of running most of those Windows programs when all but maybe 2 of them have perfectly good Linux native analogs.

Thought there's an available native version that works great, I prefer the wine version for some imaginable reasons.. :D

I have seen one, so yes I do know. Should I start a new topic, and tell the story, ?
It was pretty wild.... but I saw it. (no one believes me though)

my parents saw one in 90's, in a night stormy day, they say it was like a red ball of fire that rised to sky, stop it, did some impossible maneuvers and dissipated.. Im sure they exists among us, thought ive never seen them.
And I suspect mandela's effect is also in some way truth, too many proofs, cant be just a mind trick. I remember Tom Cruise with glasses and white Shirt in risky bussiness, and now it dress pig shirt and no glasses, but if you look for ancient parodies, you'll see they all dress white shirt an sunglassess. furthermore there are a lot of books/newpapers/magazines references talking about that scene with tom dressing sunglasses while sliding along the floor. See also comments in youtube, most of people is in shock.

And check this, with editing, just like all of us remember it:

and some comments
Except for the pink shirt, this is exactly how it still should be. Awesome job!

That wallpaper...and that desktop. My eyes have been defiled.
Furthermore:
7zip has better Linux alternative,
Firefox is the same browser on Linux lol,
Acrobat 11 ->Evince, Okular, whatever,
Google Earth is also on Linux,
Picasa is being deprecieted, is replaced by Google Photos,
LibreOffice should suit your needs perfectly unless you work in a big office or for big MS Office clients,
AutoCAD is maybe only program you need inside WINE.

Honestly, this list is useless IMHO.

Yes, the Google is giving us Google Earth Pro 7.3 for free now. Unfortunately, that version has a major display bug for my Intel Skylake 520 graphics, but I can:

use the older standard GE 7 I still had a deb for.

use GE Pro 7.1.8, which works fine.

use Bumblebee to have GE Pro 7.3 use the Nvidia GPU for the 3D rendering.

Indeed, and some in that screenshot I refuse to use on windows, they're that awful. (anything Adobe, for a start)
AutoCAD is the catch though, only older versions run in wine, and they don't support current .dwg formats... because Autodesk are a bunch of wankers and change this regularly to force upgrades.
AFAIK, there's no way around this short of paying the ludicrous price or pirating it, and running it in a VM.

Personally I use QCAD with the non-free .dwg handler, it's a tiny fraction of the price, native, and it opens the latest file formats. But it's 2D only.
It angers me that I have to deal with autocad formats at all, but people just keep giving me stuff in .dwg. Grrr.

How is SWAT 4 working?
Did you also by any chance maybe try Fallout 1/2 on WINE?
