.NET open source and on Linux.
Does this mean that Buzz will run on Linux with the help of Mono?

still no WPF on Linux / OSX, so pretty unlikely for now.

Aha. I had hoped everything was bundled in .NET but I actually know nothing about this.

:-) Yep. I guess you're right.


Since I don't know anything I had to look .wpf up. It says that wpf was included in .net at 3.0 but maybe it's not like that any longer.

Wine is probably not too far from running the latest Buzz build, as .NET Framework 4 is apparently sorted out (incl. WPF):

Last time I tried a few months ago, installation was already succeeding...

Yes, I can confirm that. I installed 1495 in my Ubuntu 14.04 with no problems, but it did not run unfortunately... :(

OK, I went a bit further this time - submitted a wine bug report: https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=37988

Let's see how it goes ;-)

Wine bug report rejected as invalid due to missing 32 bit deps - fair enough.

I figured out most of the missing libs, fiddled a bit more and it looks like I'm on to something:
Image

Nothing usable yet as it crashes shortly after, but progress, yes, definitely ;-)

Here's what I did to get there on Arch64:

- On top of the base wine install, was needed: samba, lib32-lcms2, lib32-mpg123, winetricks

- Then create a fresh 32 bit prefix:
WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine winecfg
(choose no mono install as it conflicts with dotnet)

- Install the following with winetricks:
winetricks corefonts
winetricks msxml3
winetricks dotnet40
winetricks vcrun2010

Then normal Buzz install (tested with build 1499 x86).

Thanks JoaChip, the wine guys deserve all the credit.

Here's a status update:
Main issue was reproduced & confirmed by a helpful Wine Dev: "crashes on unimplemented function msvcp100.dll"
https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=37997

+ 3 other known errors spotted on the way (see the bug report above for details).
NuBuzz is apparetly a good test case for dotnet issues, so it looks like we're on the right track ;-)

Cheers,

LX

That looks like the concurrent queue thing that was introduced in vista, should not be too difficult to add. Not related to WPF.

Tried this recently with latest buzz build.
Buzz installs successfully, but then crashes with the msvcp100.dll concurrent queue base error
I would love this to work. I used to use old buzz on linux.

Thanks for telling. I actually thought about this earlier this week.
No real change so far then...

I don't know. I used to use Linux exclusively, but I got a touchscreen and Windows 8 a few years ago and started using Buzz again, so have moved away from it for everyday use. At the time there also seemed to be a retrograde step in terms of desktop environments - my Gnome 2.3 + Compiz desktop looked much better and was more configurable than Unity/Gnome 3/Cinnamon.
I have now managed to get a similar level of functionality using Linux Mint MATE and a downgraded version of Compiz on my desktop PC, so would be nice to round this off with Buzz..
