    I Was Able to Work With Art Rage 4 on A Linux AV (Audio Visual) Operating System

    I have recently been involved with learning a couple of variants of Linux kernel operating systems: (1) AV Linux (2) Debian Jesse 8.1.

    I was able to get Art Rage 4 working on AV Linux since an application called WINE was automatically installed with the operating system. Works okay yet no pressure sensitivity using an older Wacom Intuous 2 pen, just straight lines as if using a mouse.
    On Debian Jesse 8.1 I do not have WINE installed and Art Rage does not work.

    WINE is a Linux program that enables some Windows programs to run on Linux.

    Anyone out there have any experience and use with other Linux operating systems using Art Rage? Like to hear your thoughts.

    Or Fedora

    Well, I don't have any Linux running atm, but a friend has Fedora on his PC with the Gnome
    desktop and this package has WINE too. He uses it about a year now.

    It looks quite compatible, as he even plays EVE Online on it, and he often uses
    an old Photoshop Elements 2 without problems.

    A while ago we tested ArtRage 3 and it worked. But we did not test all functions
    of course. The main reason was to test pressure sensivity of the Wacom Intuos,
    which worked too.

    I have Mint on my spare laptop. In my experience Wine only works on simple applications. You've got me wondering now though. If you can't get AR to work and want a painting prog, I suggest Krita and Mypaint. Both are Linux based [and a windows version] and pretty stable. I think I'm going to fool around with Wine though.

    The last time I kept an open mind,
    my brain fell out and the dog grabbed it.
    Now it's full of dirt, toothmarks, and dog slobber.

    PS

    It works , biggest problem is the installer,even on some window versions.
    Matt say "want to do this" a non-installer version , but dit not not hear anymore.
    Using ! AR 4.5.1 64 Bit. and wine 1.6.2 .

    PS. You can use a copy of the directory of AR installed on a WC and use that under wine !
    It NEED and ASK for your serial ! so its no illegal copie.

    How to open applications with WINE

    I have discovered interesting way to run the application, at least with how I have the Linux operating system on my computer is kind of tricky and at least once caused a problem. I have the Linux operating system on a separate SATA hard drive with the Grand Unified Bootloader that appears at start up to select an operating system for running. After opening Linux AV I find through experimentation that if I unlock the hard drive with the Windows operating system through the root password release I can browse to the Windows XP operating system folder that holds and is titled Program Files. If I go into the Ambient Design folder and look for the Art Rage.exe file and open the program from there this will open the Art Rage program to use on Linux. Very strange yet it works with my set up of operating systems. This also works with some other programs such as: Paint Shop Pro 10, Photoshop Elements 2, Blender, GIMP, (although with Blender and Gimp there is no need to use WINE since these programs are installed initially with the AV Linux operating system), and other programs with the .exe extension. Some do not work such as Corel Painter 9.5, Corel Draw 12, Photo Paint, and others. I did have a problem once experimenting this way when I tried a certain program everything went hay wire, yet a simple computer restart solved the problem and brought everything back to normal operations.

    In response to a post here, I have tried Krita on Debian Jesse 8.1, a real interesting program yet find through experimenting and try out this one has future potential yet in it's present state is buggy. Cannot get a Huion graphic tablet to work on this program accurately, works outside the canvas area like a mouse yet when you try to bring the pen into the canvas area, will not work, although an older Wacom Intuous 2 does work with this program yet again, no sensitivity simply mouse type functionality.
    I find that the best program for artwork on Linux is My Paint. You get pen sensitivity and a more traditional artwork experience with My Paint as opposed to The GIMP which does have some brush variation yet kind of like Photoshop or Photo Paint programs better suited for photo editing. Again working with My Paint and GIMP together you get full features for digital artwork since My Paint is lacking in many editing features such as cropping, control of canvas size and image resolution editing, special effects, and font features, among others.
