    Using MUSHclient on a Mac or Linux PC

    It looks like MUSHclient is a Windows app. Is there a version for Mac or Linux?

    The state of computers today is that Windows has had market dominance for so long that a lot of very smart people have spent a lot of time making it so that Windows apps can be run on Mac (though only on Intel CPU Macs) and Linux operating systems. Two primary methods are explained below -- running through Please or Register to view links and running inside a Please or Register to view links.
    I (Fiendish) run the Aardwolf MUSHclient Package on both Linux and Mac OS (Intel). So yes, it is indeed possible to run this on all three major platforms. And it's pretty easy with a few small caveats that will be explained.

    Running MUSHclient in Wine

    What is Wine?

    Please or Register to view links describes it in the following basic way: "Wine lets you run Windows software on other operating systems. With Wine, you can install and run these applications just like you would in Windows."
    You can also see the Please or Register to view links to learn more.
    One of the major benefits of using Wine is that you do not need to install Windows.
    How do I install Wine in Linux?

    Installing Wine in Linux is extremely straightforward with one minor caveat. If you are using an Intel graphics driver version between 2.12 and 2.15 (as of this writing) you'll probably need to use an old version of Wine (wine1.0 rather than wine), because of a bug in the Intel driver. It affects, for example, my Lenovo Thinkpad x201i running Ubuntu because it has an Intel graphics chip. If you have ATI or NVIDIA graphics, you should be fine with the latest version of Wine.

    UPDATE: Intel has fixed the driver bug, but it may take time to reach some distributions. There is a PPA that can be applied to fix Ubuntu 11 here Please or Register to view links
    Installing Wine in Linux is as simple and straightforward as installing anything else from the command line. Just open up a terminal and, for example...
    In Ubuntu you could type:
    sudo apt-get install wine​
    In Fedora you could type:
    sudo yum install wine​
    In Gentoo you could type:
    sudo emerge wine​
    And so on...
    How do I install Wine on a Mac?

    Requirements:
    • A Mac with an Intel CPU (All new Macs use Intel CPUs). Older PPC or 68k Macs cannot use Wine. Sorry.
    • (maybe) X11 (this is already installed by default on Snow Leopard and Leopard. If you are running Tiger, you can install X11 from your Tiger installation DVD using the "Optional Installs.mpkg" file. This may also be installed for you by other packages.)
    Either Please or Register to view links or Please or Register to view links are really good options for getting Wine running on your Mac.
    If you're really adventurous, you can also try...

    Last Resort Option for Macs (very simple to set up, but old and buggy) If You Can't Figure Out PlayOnMac/Wineskin

    Probably the simplest method to get Wine is as follows:
    Code:

       Sorry you need to Register / Login to see this Codes!    


    2. Find the file you just downloaded. It should look like this:
    wine1.png
    3. Double click on the file and you should see a disk icon mounted on your desktop that looks like this:
    wine2.png


    5.Drag the Wine icon onto the Applications folder as instructed by the arrow.
    wine3.png
    Once Wine is installed in this way, you can start MUSHclient by right-clicking on MUSHclient.exe and choosing Open With...->Wine.

    Running MUSHclient in a virtual machine

    What is a virtual machine?

    Unlike Wine, where you do not need to actually install Windows to use Windows software, setting up a virtual machine means essentially creating a whole virtual computer running a second operating system that runs inside of your main operating system. Popular virtual machine software for the Mac includes Please or Register to view links, Please or Register to view links, and Please or Register to view links. Of those three, Please or Register to view links has the significant benefit that it doesn't cost anything because it is Please or Register to view links.
    How do I install a virtual machine on a Mac?

    Requirements:
    • A Mac with an Intel CPU (All new Macs use Intel CPUs). Older PPC or 68k Macs cannot run modern virtual machine software. Sorry.
    After installing your virtual machine host software, you will need to install Windows as a guest operating system. Whichever software you choose will walk you through this process. After installing Windows inside your virtual machine, you will have a fully functional secondary operating system inside of which you can then download and run the Aardwolf MUSHclient Package.
