I'm a Linux user. Right now, I'm using Fedora 11 from home. I like it, a lot. But one thing I've had trouble with is accessing webconferencing sites. So I tried an experiment tonight.
1. I installed the Windows emulator (well, Windows compatibility layer) for Fedora. Easy: yum install wine
This puts wine under the Applications menu.
2. I found Firefox for Windows, downloaded the installer, and from a command line went to my download directory and typed:
wine Firefox[tab] which expanded the file name and installed Firefox. Now it appears under Applications>Wine>Programs....Firefox
3. I went to the Adobe Connect site and managed to install Flash and another plug in, just as any Windows user would.
4. I went to the "test" page: https://admin.acrobat.com/common/help/en/support/meeting_test.htm and it failed at the Acrobat Connect Add-in Test.
I just can't install it (and yes, I clicked on Install Add-in). It fails. Don't know why.
Anybody out there tried this before? And succeeded?
