I'm not certain any Bible software company is large enough to port to Linux. Bible software is already a niche market, and Bible software on Linux is a very tiny niche of the niche. It would just about have to be a community endeavor.
Personally, I'd like to see it done by the users. I've wanted for a while to get an inexpensive laptop to use as a Linux machine. If we ever got a setup that was fairly stable, I imagine we could link to it, but without giving it official support.
If you try any distro first, try opensuse, its got a nice feel to it and most, if not all, of its system settings can be set in a gui. Second how can the community work on this, or do you mean the wine side? If its wine your talking about that is what I am asking.
Has anyone actually tried Acc 11 on Wine ? I see here the OP was that 10.4.3 broke in July. But I haven't seen any posts about 11 behaviour.
There were a couple of posts of people doing some serious exploration of getting this going in the 10.x timeframe. I don't know if any of that would help here.
I've only played with this on 10 and not with a dual boot setup but with Mint over VBox.
Mind you I have a 1TB SSD now and could partition for a Linux second boot. Hmmm....
Acc 10.4.2 runs, but I cant test more then just install and running and asking for my credentials, 10.4.3 and 11 do not, they won't even start up in wine and I was hoping someone was able to find out what was stopping it from running. I plan on getting the mounce study bundle, http://www.accordanc...ce Bundle-10_13and if I can get on a payment plan I would get more, like some of the others with an esv bible. And when I get it I can just install the downgrade that I got from the forums.
