wine and evernote

Postby centek1 » 2012/01/21 15:06:28

Hi I wanted to use evernote on my home computer controlled by the centos 6.1 64bit

evernote is a nice tool available only for windows and mac

I installed the wine from epel repository
I downloaded the evernote program.
And did start under wine.... the evernote installation program executed, successfully installed

but when I click evernote to start, the welcome screen is fired, and question about login and password.

problem is that the screen seems to be corrupted, is very small, no place for providing login and pass.

did you have simillar issues with windows handling?

where is the issue?

Your best bet is probably to use Wine support. This is not a CentOS issue. You might also want to try CodeWeavers for a "fine Wine" at a reasonable price. :-) Their product can manage a lot of things that the free Wine builds cannot, and they do support Wine development.

one more thing... I am getting crazy about wine.. :/

the folks from wine forum said I should download latest version of wine which is 1.3.37

i have stnd repositories, plus epel on my home computer, and when i did search the only shown wine version is 1.3.2

do you know what repository contains 1.3.37?

None that I see. As I said before, if running Windows applications on Linux is really important to you then try CodeWeavers. They are very reasonably priced.

If you want a later FOSS Wine, you can either do a Source Install or probably better yet try to Rebuild a Source RPM such as Rawhide http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/f ... 17.src.rpm .

I can't say how easy or hard that may be without trying it, but if it needs too many external dependencies be careful, and do not damage your system by replacing core packages.
