I managed to get EuroScope and the AFV Standalone Client fully working on my install of Artix Linux, and found that the way I set it up should work for any distro with wine-devel, wine-mono, and winetricks in their repositories. I've decided to detail how to do so below. They might work on an Intel Mac or an Apple Silicon Mac using Rosetta, but I don't have a Mac, not a MacOS VM to play around with the Native X86 version, let alone using Rosetta to emulate X86 on an Apple Silicon Mac. 1. Install wine, wine-mono, and winetricks from your distribution's repositories. You might have to enable 32-bit support on your system to do so. Check your distribution's documentation/forums for how to do so. 2. Run winetricks from the terminal, select the default prefix, and select Install a Windows component or DLL 3. Install .Net Framework 2.0 SP2, then exit winetricks 4. Download and install the MS .Net Framework 4.0 Runtime Offline Installer* from https://dotnet.microsoft.com/en-us/download/dotnet-framework/net40 5. Download and install MS .Net Framework 4.7.2 Runtime Offline Installer* from https://dotnet.microsoft.com/en-us/download/dotnet-framework/net472 6. Download and install every X86 and X64 Visual C++ Redistributable** from https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/cpp/windows/latest-supported-vc-redist 7. Reboot 8. Install EuroScope and the AFV Standalone Client, alongside any plugins, controller packs, and/or sector files as required by your division***😎 9. Configure EuroScope and the AFV Standalone Client as you prefer. They should work as if native. Your mileage may vary with this, and it's never guaranteed that it will work. I do not take responsibility for any damage you may do to your install of Linux or to your hardware by following these steps. I just posted these as they worked for me in my case and may help you in your's. *Your mileage may vary, but I have found that these installers work better like this than from using winetricks. **These may not be 100% needed, but I would recommend installing them just in case. ***Bear in mind that the ~/.wine/drive_c/Users/<username>/Documents directory is a symlink to ~/Documents.
Hello, This is a HOWTO on how to use Euroscope and AFV on Linux(UBUNTU 20.04) under wine to help Linux users avoid using a VM. What works: All expected core functionality including most plugins I use(TopSky and Ground Radar) What doesn't work: AFV Bridge, Proxy (client not fed data), Some ALERT messages from TopSky which could be related to the mentioned proxy issue. This requires wine 6, so Install wine stable from the official wine PPA as described here: https://wiki.winehq.org/Ubuntu Install and, since the repository winetricks is outdated update winetricks with: sudo apt-get install winetricks sudo winetricks --self-update Create a wine bottle and make sure it's configured to Windows 7, no virtual desktop.
