RE: Linux (was TEDDS)

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

FWIW, I successfully ran Autocad using WINE a couple of years back. Couldn’t tell you much about it, because I only tried it once, briefly, as an experiment, but it did work. Acad is one of the apps that the WINE project as specifically targeted to run well.

 

However, my real solution is to have another Windows computer available on your network, and using rdesktop (http://www.rdesktop.org) to run a Windows session remotely. It isn’t that big a deal to have a “spare” computer to do this, I think.

 

That way, you get the best of both worlds.

To those of you using Linux, have you abandoned AutoCAD, or do you just dual boot into it (what a big PITA that must be)?
