Three questions regarding Sygic+Wine
I'm succesfully running sygic under wine now, with Ubuntu Desktop 9.04 .
But I have a number of minor problems I'd like to solve:
1. Why is it that if I do "wine Drive.exe" or "wine <path-to-Drive.exe>/Drive.exe" the program stops after showing the first screen? If instead, I do right click and "run with wine" from nautilus, it works fine... =( I think it may have something to do with environment variables, being set differently in the terminal and in nautilus, but I'm not sure...
2. Is there any way to maximize the window automatically when the program is started?
3. I have created a soft link from the <dos_devices> directory to the GPS tty, ttyUSB0; that lets wine read from the GPS as a standard windows serial port. Till there, everything OK. Now, what if I want other programs to use the GPS at the same time? AFAIK, you only need to read from the tty to get the GPS coordinates; and therefore there should be a way to "replicate" the port in the same way the Windows program Franson(s?) GPS gate worked. How can I do this?
Simple com port emulation
Did a little bit of research as I was looking into building my linux based carpc ... this should give you a working com port ... I think, havent tried it.
gpspipe -r >> ~.wine/dosdevices/com3
Found this little snippet here, http://www.nabble.com/-PATCH-2.34--g...d15120307.html
On that site is a patch to gpspipe to add a -f option, but that seems too much work to me to implement. Thought it might be useful to someone.
