Installing Isadora on Linux via WINE
i was attending Mark Coniglio's workshop last week at Performersion Berlin and got to know this wonderful software.
I successfully installed on a Linux laptop and want to share a little how to :
I installed on a Manjaro (arch based) Linux on a thinkpad x220 , but every other linux distro should work similar, like ubuntu or debian,
First you need to have WINE installed, a Program that emulates the Windows OS.
1. Install the windows version of isadora via WINE
2. install the free version of Quicktime for windows.
I could run Isadora pretty stable for a lot of things we tried, but I
had also some stability issues:
for example using the chroma key effect crashed the program and I couldnt use the internal webcam of my laptop out of the box. But I m pretty sure that there are workarounds for these problems (maybe switching the graphics card driver from proprietary to the free linux driver, etc..) that i of course havent had time to check in this short amount of time of the workshop...
So for me as a linux user this is pretty exciting to be able to run Isadora on my Laptop!
