Universalis on Linux

Posted by universalis on 30 January 2012

There are versions for the downloadable Universalis program for Windows and for Mac, but there is no specific version for Linux. However, some people have reported success in using the Windows download on Linux (see the earlier blog post). Today I have received an email from another user:

I don’t run Windows or Apple Mac but instead use Ubuntu Linux.  Linux has a Windows emulator program called Wine and I tried your program using this emulator.  It works perfectly.

I’d just thought I would let you know in case you get any queries form other Linux users.

We don’t support running the Windows Universalis on Linux, in that if you have a problem with it then there is nothing we can do to help. On the other hand we are very happy to hear that it does work and we encourage you to try it. We will certainly not do anything intentionally to stop it working in the future.

It has been suggested that we should mention Linux on the Universalis web page. We feel we can’t do this because it might make people think that Universalis on Linux is supported, which it isn’t. But we’re still glad to hear that it seems to work.
