:: WinCPC and linux ::

I plan to port WinCPC to linux and have to use GTK+ and gcc. So I have to rewrite the entire WinCPC code from scratch into GNU C Compiler. I cannot declare the point in time of starting porting WinCPC. At the moment, I suggest to use Wine. I'm running Ubuntu and tested WinCPC. The floppy emulation noises aren't "emulated" in Wine yet. I noticed, that the debugger window is not placed correctly in the Z-order using Wine. Likewise the emulation windows by self, which doesn't appear in the task list of Gnome. I did not tested WinCPC and Wine in KDE.

installing and running WinCPC in Ubuntu (debian way):

open a console and type:
~$ sudo apt-get install wine unzip ~$ mkdir wincpc ~$ cd wincpc ~/wincpc$ wget http://www.wincpc.ch/wincpc.zip ~/wincpc$ unzip wincpc.zip ~/wincpc$ wine WinCPC.exe
