Hi Mike,

I have had some success with AS3 but I am running Kubuntu 12.04 Beta 1 and I have the playonlinux system installed - which includes the latest versions of Wine with the 64 bit wine compatibility layers.

Hope that helps

Subject: [nbos] FM8 - Linux problem



As some of you may know, I have been experimenting with using AS3 and FM8, on my Toshiba NB100 notebook with Ubuntu Linux OS (V 10.04) running under "Wine" Windows emulator. I had to abandon the attempt with AS3 - it installed and seemed to run OK but, as soon as I tried to access the System Data panel, everything crashed.

However, I've had more luck with FM8 and this seemed to go reasonably well until I loaded an existing map which uses a range of symbols I produced myself. I put the folder containing these symbols in the MapArt folder with the standard NBOS symbols and the folder duly appeared for selection in FM8. However, some of my symbols had become rotated through 90 (anticlockwise) and nothing I do seems to change this. Also, not all the NBOS "standard" symbols seem to appear for selection when the appropriate symbol folder is called.

I recall before I upgraded my Ubuntu OS from V 8.04, I had a problem with symbols not being transferred from the selection panel on to the map and I had to put a .dll file into the NBOS folder somewhere.

Does anyone know if I might be having a similar problem now or whether it is something else that I might be able to correct?
