Re: feature request

I think most of bbqlinux users do not use/need wine.

You can easily install it by running:

sudo pacman -S wine winetricks

Re: feature request

You can download the needed packages + sig files from one of the arch mirrors and install them via "pacman -U package.xz"
http://ftp.u-tx.net/archlinux/

But i'm pretty sure that wine will try to download some packages like direct x / ie and so on.
This will fail hard without internet connection.

Re: feature request

i have to download and install many files to make one program to run....
it is very time consuming...

Re: feature request

Sorry, i'm not going to add it.
Afaik there's currently no linux distribution available with wine preinstalled.

If you really need a specific windows app, then use windows.
It's better than wasting a lot of hours trying to get it running via wine.

Re: feature request

It's unique and the main goal is to support android devs.
No need for wine.

Wine can't deal with any kind of drivers.
You might have a look at Ndiswrapper.

Which modem are you using?

Re: feature request

thanks i will try NDISwrapper

hey i had a compromising idea:-

add feature to " Turn linux features on or off "
like in windows this feature is present in "Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Programs and Feature"s and "Turn windows features on or off" in left side
and add some additional programs there..which will be turned off  by default and if the user wants to load them he will turn on them...

Re: feature request

In case it's a usb modem....

Edit wvdial config:

sudo geany /etc/wvdail.conf

Contents of wvdial.conf:

[Dialer Defaults] 
Init1 = ATZ 
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0 
Modem Type = Analog Modem 
Baud = 9600 
New PPPD = yes 
Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0 
ISDN = 0 

[Dialer reliance_netconnect] 
Username = “Add reliance netconnect phone number here without quotes”
Password = “Add reliance netconnect phone number here without quotes”
Phone = #777 
Stupid Mode = 1 
Inherits = Modem0

Then run:

sudo wvdial reliance_netconnect

Do not close the terminal!!!


The easier way is to use modemmanager which will be included in next release.

sudo pacman -S modemmanager
sudo systemctl enable modemmanager
sudo systemctl start modemmanager

Re: feature request

In case of wine it's probably nearly impossible and will take ages to develop.
Not worth the time.

This includes modemmanager and ndiswrapper:

Right-click on the network applet and edit connections.
Then create a new one for your provider.
