Baan Client On Linux M/C
This was one my oldest post on Baanboard, somewhere in 2006, got a lot of emails regarding the same. So thought of refreshing it and bringing it to the blog.
This is the original link.
Below is the procedure for running the BaaN client on Linux machine
If using a Unix Server , then the only thing you have to do is
Run bx6.1 on your linux client
But the simplest way in any condition I feel is to use wine ( Windows Emulator )
Wine is pretty cool and give you the feel as if you are using windows good for those new to Linux
Follow the steps :
1. Check if you have wine installed ( type “wine” in the console )
2. Configure wine ( It is recommended not to run wine with root privilege )
3. Copy your Windows Baan Client setup in your home folder (Or /usr/share if you want )
4. Right Click on “setup.exe” and click on “ Open with Wine “
5. The setup runs the same way it runs in windows
6. You BAAN will get installed in the folder
( where niraj in my case is the user , note: there is “.” (dot) before wine
This is a default path in Debian
7. In Suse it is
8. You can find the path easily , the first three folders always remains same
9. Thats it, now you can run the BaaN client
With older version of wine , there was a problem of flickering but now with new versions you can get a clean screen. If you want a more better option, you can go for “wineX”.
