You can run accordance 11 in wine with playonlinux using wine 1.7.55 prefix, or pretty much any version of wine after 1.7.44 from staging, it has the patches to get the 11 version up and running. But here is a candidate to get Accordance 11 ported to native linux. Here is a link to two screen shots, http://imgur.com/a/0PygF , one as it idles and one where you get to see the text while hovering the mouse over a 'magic' spot.

I'll have to see if I can get it running via Wine.  I have an entire VM with Windows 10 for Logos, so it would be nice to be able to run Accordance with only Wine!

Be warned, the gui is busted on the lastest Accordance, I don't know which version actually broke it though, I just know it was on Accordances side as the 1.7.44-staging and up are broken in the same way. If you want to get it working just try using playonlinux, as you can switch versions of wine pretty easy.

Darn, I thought it was working.  Thanks for letting me know.  Yeah, I pretty much only use PlayOnLinux when I get things going with Wine.  It really does make things a lot easier!

Did you see my screen shots, its workable, but way buggy, more buggy then what it was when it first started working with wine. I didn't mean to give the impression that its broken, but that the rendering is messed up some how, maybe I will go on #winehq and harass a dev to see if they can look at it.

Yes, I see the screenshots.  I will still probably look at trying it out.  It'll be fun :)

Got some good news, its a little more work but still worth it, follow this post, http://www.accordanc...roblem/?p=8913111.0.6 is acceptable, its not perfect, being in wine thats fine, but you will need wine staging/winehq staging depending on your distro. If its ubuntu there is a ppa with a winehq-staging build that will work, it will be 1.9.14, pol has internet connection issues.

Do not upgrade the app once you have it installed, it will break for you again.

Here, http://imgur.com/a/0PygF , I updated my set of screen shots with a little more info. Sometime after 11.0.6 I believe they changed/updated their UI toolkit, or at least thats how it looks to me.

I have a questions for the devs, since you are using Lazarus/Delphi/Pascal, why not just create a native port of Accordance on linux?

Here is a video highlighting issues with the gui in Accordance 11.2.2 and wine 1.9.14 ( note this is not wine staging, as the changes in Accordance some time after 11.0.6 allowed it to render without the wine patch but broke the ui in other areas) https://www.youtube....h?v=psM12I9lFog and here https://bugs.winehq....ug.cgi?id=40991 is my wine bug report.

Porting to linux, despite the fact that part of our development process uses Lazarus, would be very costly, and there is unfortunately not much user demand, this thread notwithstanding.

What if the community did crowd funding to raise the money to port it over to linux, how much would it cost, and/or maybe find a team in the community to do the porting,

I did get 11.0.6 working using PlayOnLinux and the 1.9.14 staging version of Wine.  As far as POL not getting internet, after I closed Accordance and reopened it, it installed Gecko, and then connected.  I haven't gotten a chance to play with it to see how usable it is, since it took so long to download resources!

Yeah, Accordance 11.0.6 does seem more solid with wine 1.9.14 staging, then 11.2.2 does with any version.

Hi,

 

Great news. I installed Acc 11.2.4 on a fresh install of Ubuntu 16.04 with Wine (staging), and the flickering has stopped when I move the cursor over a text. It isn’t perfect (there is a small grey box that follows the cursor), but it is more stable and still. I can even use the system wide SIL Hebrew keyboard in the Go to box. That is an improvement in Wine that I noticed about a month ago.

 

Attached File  AccinU16.png   213.43KB   1 downloads

 

So, either something changed in the kernal driver support, in Wine, or in Acc itself, probably the first two.

 

I tried Windows 10 again, partly because the Acc (Demo 11.1.6) didn’t work well. But even with everything checked off, Windows 10 was intrusive. So I thought I’d try the newest Acc on a fresh install, even though it would cost me another activation. I think I’ll keep this setup.

 

Regards,

 

Michel

Not working for me. Installed the last version of 11 from the Accordance site (11.2.4) using the following:

 

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS with all up to date updates

Kernel 4.4.0.51

Wine staging 1.9.24

 

The UI is still broken under these conditions. I was able to install, run, configure with login, download my 100+ modules, but the UI doesn't display the text in the tab unless I highlight it with a click-drag, and menu drop downs aren't all there until I guess where they are and click them.

 

I played around with the text display preferences. I tried using winecfg to force a window of a common resolution. Nothing helped.

Do you mean the cost to do a once of port of one release, i.e., the next release, or the cost of that plus the ongoing cost of maintaining and testing for linux.
