Accordance 11.0.6 is running with WINE!! Thank you so much for the hints. With a patched WINE 1.7.44 (compiled in a chroot environment) Accordance now runs fast and stable. Please contact me if you need detailed informations.

Is it possible to upload the .deb package for interested users?

Awesome! I would think you could zip the instructions and .deb package and put it on the Accordance Exchange.

Hi folks!

 

I am one of the contributing developers for Xiphos, which is a piece of Bible software that runs on Linux. I can say that there is bigger demand for Bible software on Linux than one might think. Other than Xiphos, there is also BibleTime and BibleAnalyser.

 

Having bought Accordance for Mac, I would love to have Accordance for Linux too. :) But I hate using WINE, so if you could consider it, I would greatly appreciate it if you do port to Linux.

 

The biggest problem would be having a replacement toolkit for Cocoa. There is GNUStep, but that is not that great. However, if you are using Cocoa on Windows already, then there would most likely not be much work required to get Accordance running on Linux.

 

I am a developer who would love to see Accordance on Linux.

The WINE compatibility might be as far as it ever goes, I hope WINE compatibility remains for LINUX users but this is not the ultimate goal of the windows programers, although it might be nice if they kept it in the back of their mind while testing.

Followers of this thread might be interested to know the the patch mentioned in this thread is incorporated into wine-staging which is easy to install alongside (or instead of) other versions of wine. See https://github.com/w...ki/Installation

 

It's easy to install on most distros and doesn't require patching and compiling source. I haven't upgraded to Accordance 11 yet, but it seems to run the demo fine.

Hi,

 

I'm new to Linux, but I'd really like to run Acc in Ubuntu 14.04.

 

I copied and extracted the .deb file, typed ls, and got this:

 

wine_1.7.44-1_i386_patched_accordance.deb

wine_1.7.44-1_i386_patched_accordance.deb.zip

 

When I try to install the package with

sudo dpkg -i wine_1.7.44-1_i386_patched_accordance.deb

I get this:

 

. . . /Accordance$ sudo dpkg -i wine_1.7.44-1_i386_patched_accordance.deb

dpkg-split: error: error reading wine_1.7.44-1_i386_patched_accordance.deb: Is a directory

dpkg: error processing archive wine_1.7.44-1_i386_patched_accordance.deb (--install):

subprocess dpkg-split returned error exit status 2

Errors were encountered while processing:

wine_1.7.44-1_i386_patched_accordance.deb

[email protected]:~/Documents/Programs/Accordance$

 

Any suggestions?

 

I also think we need a Linux Wisdom section. :)

Michel

Hi,

 

I got Acc working with the latest Wine 1.7x and Wine Staging.

 

My preliminary report – there's a lot of flashing and flickering; there are no visible menu items below the top tab of a module's name, i.e., right down to where the change font size, Set Text Pane Display, etc. menu should be, but you can see these items when you hover the mouse, and you can click on them; and, everything seems to work, e.g., Hebrew construct searches.

 

My next steps – I'll keep Acc activated in Ubuntu, and see if updates to Wine, Acc, or any other advice might help. I'll keep you posted, and even send screen shots once I learn how to take them in Ubuntu.

 

Thanks to all for this post.

 

Regards,

 

Michel

Hi Rick,

 

I'm amazed at how similar Ubuntu is to Snow Leopard.

 

I'll probably experiment with Acc in another Linux VM, to try to resolve the flickering and flashing when I hover the mouse.

 

If Acc offered a Linux version, I would migrate from Logos to Acc, and leave Windows for good. There must be others who would do the same.

 

Regards,

 

Michel

I was feeling very impish tonight and reminded the mega thread on Linux over in L land that people do having Accordance running on Linux with the latest Wine 1.7x and Wine Staging. I did that because it sounds like it will be a cold day before their program will ever work in Linux.

PS: I promise not to tease the people with software with that works... hehehehehe

Hi Dan,

 

Logos has made it clear they won’t develop a Linux version, although they might change their mind if the year of Linux ever arrives.

 

I was going to switch to Mac, but Ubuntu is so much like Snow Leopard, familiar and stable, that I switched to Ubuntu instead. I'll eventually save quite a bit of money on hardware (Linux can run on almost anything) and software (no more yearly anti-virus). I would like to put that money toward Acc modules. But, I would feel better doing it if Acc offered a Linux version.

 

I think the year of Linux may be coming soon. It is definitely easier to install programs now, you can run familiar programs natively like Chrome (with Netflix), Adobe and other pdf readers, Libre Office, and Scrivener (Linux version is free), and others in Wine, like MS Office (with system wide keyboards), and of course, the cloud office suites, etc. I also have to say that for my needs, Unicode Hebrew copy and paste works better between programs in Ubuntu than in Snow Leopard.

 

 

 I just hope Acc doesn't mind resetting my Activations if I use them all up trying to solve the flickering issue.  :)

 

Regards,

 

Michel

I'm not a Linux user, but I have almost heard, that OS X and Linux are on the base the same. So I'm always staggered that the software for Linux which runs on a compiler are from Windows and not from Mac which were nearer.

 

Can someone explain me why this is so?

Linux and OSX are actually in origin from different flavours of Unix if you like. Linux comes from Linus Torvalds efforts to produces a free Unix-like operating system. OSX comes out of the Mach BSD Unix lineage. So at root they are not from the same line though they look at many OS concepts in broadly similar ways as do most (all ?) *nix OSes.

 

The Windows and Apple libraries and development system are about equally proprietary. What differs and makes Linux using Windows binaries possible is that Wine was developed to provide a high level Windows interface running on Linux. This has not to my knowledge been done for OSX. To do this in a way that does not require a recompilation of the binary programs requires of course compatible hardware, which basically means Intel architecture (that's too general a term of course because Intel makes many chips - but basically Intel x86 lineage), which most Windows programs are built for. This was not always possible on Mac of course but with the Power PC days gone it's at least vaguely conceivable.

 

Thx

D
