1) Don't use linux unless you know how to google.

2) When you have learnt google, search for "dc++ linux" ( http://www.google.se/search?q=dc%2B%2B+linux )

3) Click on the First link ( http://linuxdcpp.berlios.de/ )
Everyone is supposed to download from the hubs, - I don´t know why, but I never do anymore.

the standard DC++ also works through wine.

... for some people. Not for others. The question of "when is DC++ going to work on WINE" came up on one of the dev hubs in the last week or two.

Do you have a good foolproof guide?

The last time I tried was a year or so ago, and I followed a guide on the Wine site.

DCPlusPlus 0.674 works perfectly with Wine; has been working for a while. If you are going totally native, turn off "Show Progress Bars for transfer (uses some CPU)" otherwise DC++ WILL crash.

Alternatively you can grab a 'comctl32.dll' from your windows directory and add that. Just make sure to emulate a Win98 system and all'll be fine.

No it won't since win98 doesn't run DC++ 0.674, but then again you can fix it...

Well, it will run, but perhaps have some minor bugs.

I am talking about Wine, not windows! With wine you can run DC++ under linux.

You said you had to emulate windows 98 under wine to get DC++ 0.674 working. That version does not work very well together with the actual windows 98, so it's logical to assume an emulation of win98 will have similar problems, if not, the emulation is flawed ;)

Must be some awsome emulation if it fixes Win98 problems.:)

The problem is the Unicode layer on Win98 (unicows.dll), if WINE's unicode layer implementation is better than Win98's there should be no crash...

wine doesn't emulate anything. It's a recreation of the win32 API under Linux. The "win98 emulation" I think is more in how Wine looks and acts. And you can use 2k/XP dlls if you need to, so instead of using a win98 dll, try a more recent version.

Yup that is correct, but to do the emulation right, you need an original windows disc, and if I remember correctly, if trying to emulate win98, it won't allow you to use the newer discs for install... On the other hand I got it working fine with emulating XP, even if it isn't as stable as windows (now that is an oxomoron worth something).

you shouldn't need any windows discs for Wine. Here's the description from the Wine site:
Wine is an Open Source implementation of the Windows API on top of X and Unix.

Think of Wine as a compatibility layer for running Windows programs. Wine does not require Microsoft Windows, as it is a completely free alternative implementation of the Windows API consisting of 100% non-Microsoft code, however Wine can optionally use native Windows DLLs if they are available. Wine provides both a development toolkit for porting Windows source code to Unix as well as a program loader, allowing many unmodified Windows programs to run on x86-based Unixes, including Linux, FreeBSD, and Solaris.


so in theory you should be able to load up DC++ and have it just work, but they're probably not at that point yet, so that's why you might need actual windows DLL files. Hopefully you won't need them forever though.

Well theory is good, but last time I checked, that so didn't work. :) but seriously after actually getting it to work, I haven't spend much time at all trying it out.

You don't need a windows disc for wine. DC++ works with wine without any extra files. I repeat you DON'T need any extra files to get it to work. And with this said this previous message is not correct in any way:
Yup that is correct, but to do the emulation right, you need an original windows disc, and if I remember correctly, if trying to emulate win98, it won't allow you to use the newer discs for install...

... just wanted to make it clear.
