Will EyeFi software run under Ubuntu 8.01?

Asked by im2tonic on 2008-10-27

EyeFi is a hardware/software platform that allows you to wirelessly transmit pictures from a wifi-enabled USB drive to your similarly equipped computer. To do this it is necessary to install EyeFi drivers on your computer. The EyeFi folks tell me they do not have a Linux version of the software, and have no plans for one. I will, in desperation, probably try installing it anyway to see what happens -- sometimes you get lucky -- but would feel better if someone has successfully tried it and can tell me how they did it. Thank you for any help anyone may have.

I don't know if this service notifies you, so for anyone who is responding here, would they also please email their answer to me at <email address hidden>. ...Fred

Don't count on it to work for now. Some people try to get it working with Wine, but results aren't there yet.

Hans, thank you for the prompt reply. Is there any way, other then re-posting the question later, to stay in the loop with regard to using Wine to get this to work?

Have you tried this with Wine 1.2 in Ubuntu Karmic ?

There are open source implementations of the EyeFi server (the thing that receives the images):
