I don't know how to make titles for my posts..
Linux isn't easy for even a user who used to run MSDOS on my IBM PS/2. This is my third linux distribution installed in the many computers I have and I haven't got used to it after three years of using it (becauses I haven't had to install a billion apps for it and only used it for drawing). The thing is I WANT to get used to using it, even if I have to use wine to get the software I mainly use, but I can't if I have to go back to windows and thus...why use linux in the first place?
My tirade aside, I've followed the instructions for installing byond on the wine website..failed. Look through the other post about not able to run the pager on linux and followed some suggestions. Failed. Seems to me installing IE7 and IE8 is one of the problems because it comes up 404. So is the information here old? Now I'm not the only one that I'm trying to get byond to run on a linux distribution. While I have zorin 11, which I have on my laptop (the tablet is my work computer with ubuntu 15.10) my friend has zorin 12. This is to help her ease into using linux.
So...a few questions. Will byond be using appimage to help new users install software? I'm not particularly sure the weirdness around why byond haven't been build for linux yet. Seems easy as shit if not made to run massively better. You know...C++, python 3, blah blah blah...I know this question probably been asked a million times but if you don't mind reiterate why this isn't possible. I got everything work with wine, but not the pager? How about a pager builded for linux? It doesn't have to be for EVERY distribution, that's not the point, but to make it a little bit fool proof and the ability to backpedal in keeping it easy and functionable.
