did that and still not found them. doing search i find them but cant get synaptic to find and install even after getting apt.

usmale (rubbermale) said : #3

the one i want to install is called kokua-0.7

zvacet (ivicakolic) said : #4

That package is not in synaptic.You will have to install it by yourself.

Hi again :)

Hopefully these 2 guides might help. Usually it is better to find something similar in Synaptic but occasionally you do have to try something outside the safe zone

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SwitchingToUbuntu/FromWindows

http://appdb.winehq.org/
Note that the Wine package is included in Synaptic but it might be worth getting the latest beta-test version of Wine straight from their website. Usually, for most packages, i would recommend getting the stable version through Synaptic but occasionally you might need something that is still in a development phase - which means it's less stable and might fall over.

Anyway if you can find a linux version, preferably a ".deb" version or a tarball, then finding out about "apt-get" might help you install the package

Good luck and regards from
Tom :)

Umm, i have just looked up kokua-0.7 and it seems to be a ".jar" file and seems to be a java game. I have no experience with java at all so it might be worth posting a question at the bottom of the download page
http://sourceforge.net/projects/twdata/
and also send the question of how to get this working in Ubuntu to the developers
http://sourceforge.net/project/memberlist.php?group_id=30183

Someone might appear in here that knows about java but i would definitely ask in those other places too.

Good luck and regards from
Tom :)

i was trying to install a tradewars 2002 game helper. if i could have done
it i wouldn't have been asking for help. for some reason beyond me the
add/remove thingy won't find it though it is currently in the public folder
on this pc. neither does synaptic even with apt installed. do you have any
ideas or better someone who does that lives in or near portland, oregon that
can come over and help?

kokua is the latest program to play tradewars 2002 with. it is a helper that
does most repetitive things that are done in the online game. there are
other helper programs, some for linux but most are for windows. kokua is the
child of the program called j-twat which is supposed to work in both
platforms. i currently use j-twat on my windows pc. kokua is linux only.

Hi :)

Have you been able to try the new Ubuntu 10.04 before it gets officially released?
http://www.ubuntulinux.org/testing/lucid/beta2
Trying it as a LiveCd or as an extra dual/multi-boot would be ideal. Developers and everyone are keen to try to iron out any problems before 10.04 gets officially released so you might find faster & more effective answers to your bug reports which would make 10.04 work better on your system for you

Thanks and regards from
Tom :)

hi no i pretty much ignore ubuntu these daze since it's patently illegal to
have a tradewars game helper in it.

Hi :)

Ouch, that seems somewhat unfair! Have you considered installing Windows in a Virtual Machine in Ubuntu? Dual-boots are ok for odd 1 off tasks but painful if you need to spend much time in both during the course of a day

Thanks for getting back to me about his
Many regards from
Tom :)

usmale (rubbermale) said : #13

yes i have tried virtualbox and that did work. wasn't much on speed. way to
slow in fact. also tried other variations of ubuntu. mint, kubuntu, ultimate
edition. none would let me have a tradewars helper. therefore i aint been
bothering with linux much. if ubuntu allowed me to have what i want then i
wouldn't need windows. as it is there nothing for me with linux.

Hi :)

it seems to me that this is not Ubuntu's fault but is the fault of whoever produces TradeWars.

In the same way hardware manufacturers refuse to make 1 OpenSource linux driver for their products. They even refuse to allow linux people access to information that would enable them to make such drivers for free. Those hardware manufacturers then spend huge amounts of resources producing at least 3 divers for the various Windows platforms.

So, instead of complaining to the hardware manufacturers, users will often blame linux.

I find it interesting that people are happy to be forced into paying for Windows and paying for the anti-virus/malware and paying for bigger and bigger machines to run the same old stuff on and paying for programs that can easily become malware infested and are happy to put up with the slow-downs that even a fairly recent machine suffers with just a few months of Windows usage. Of course many people are happier installing pirated versions or using pirated licences which often have malware bundled in with the package.

Personally i would be (and was) outraged to be forced into something even if it was what i wanted in the first place. I have written a few emails to hardware manufacturers about this sort of bad-practice but i think we need a few more people willing to stand up for their rights rather than happy to be treated like a doormat.

Anyway, good luck and thanks for replying to me about this
Regards from
Tom :)
