Hi,

 

I purchased Accordance because it ran on Linux using Wine (Logos did not). It worked really well until version 10.4.3.

Starting from Accordance 10.4.3, I Accordance doesn't work anymore on Linux, I can't even start it.

 

I know that you are not officially supporting Accordance on Linux, but I wonder if you might consider that. You could work with Codeweavers to get Accordance running on Linux without Code changes from your side.

 

Thanks

Samuel

 

PS: If there are any other Linux users that would love to see Linux support for Accordance, please raise your voice here :)

Hi Sam, not a linux user (except for MythTV) but you can downgrade to 10.4.2 by redownloading it and reinstalling. Bit of a pain I know...not your idea; solution.

 

I am not involved in software coding, direction or planning so I can't comment on the request really.

 

You can download 10.4.2 (Windows)  here

+1!

 

I just upgraded to version 10 because the demo version works under wine 1.7. I was running version 9 under the emulator.  Thanks for the tip on using 10.4.2. I can confirm that this works, but 10.4.3 doesn't.

 

BTW, Samual, what version of wine are you using? I'm using 1.7.15 under Debian amd64. I couldn't get it to work with the stable 1.6 packages.

Hi David,

 

I also used the 1.7 series, with 1.6 some things didn't work for me.

Currently I'm using Crossover which has also the latest wine (1.7.x) internally.

The link points to 10.4.3.

But anyway, thanks for the tip.

Why not just ask them to port Accordance to Linux?

Anyone find out why Accordance 11 dose not work with wine, and if they will start supporting wine since they will not port it to linux?

It could be a simple thing... it might be something deep down in the heart of the program... I honestly do not know. Accordance never officially supported wine but there were several users devoted to seeing if they could get it working. I would guess that Accordance would be happy to have it running in WINE but I am not sure if the staff is there too do it. I dare say that Android seems to me to be a more logical step than LINUX next... That said WINE based LINUX may be a far easier goal than Android since it might just be a couple of bugs to swat. I realize that I have offered you virtually nothing useful, but wanted to let you know someone is listening even if I can do nothing to help...

 

God bless and have a wonderful Christmas.
