    Rosetta Stone under Wine


    Has anyone had experiance installing and using a rosseta stone Program on their computers?

    I intalled it with cedega and it ran, but I just needed to burn some cds for the languages.

    I don't want to use cedega anymore though, because its totaly unrelaible and when something breaks it takes a month for them to ask you if you got it to work yet

    At this point I got it to instal with just wine, but when I say run it just sits there and nothing happens.

    waz wondering the same thing

    I have been trying to get rosetta stone working as well, this is the only program i now rely on windows for.....

    seems a bit complicated since quicktime is installed as well by rosetta.

    I think there is a place on the www.winehq.com where we can request programs to get working, if we all comment there maybe we can get some action.

    does anyone have it working?

    Good idea, I'll go look for it in a bit, I'll post a link for where you make the requests when I find it.

    I just downloaded Rosetta Stone...and it came with a ton of other languages. The different languages are stored in their own seperate folders....when the folder is opened it has a bunch of files for that language saved as .SWA files. When i run Rosetta Stone and login under my name, it goes to the next page and says looking for language cd..... I've been trying to figure out how to copy the .SWA files into the program folder under lessons but that didn't work. Do i have to burn the .SWA files to a cd in order for it to work? Thanks

    I have found that it works fairly well with wine. With ubuntu edgy I'm pretty sure that all I did was pop in the cd and double-click on setup.exe.

    You might also want to try crossover office. They have a beta version you can use for free.

    I installed The Rosetta Stone with CrossOver for Linux, but then it could not find the CD. Afterwards I tried to run it with wine. It WORKED
