Newbie to wine.
I have built a wine binary from source (wine-20031212). I have been
able to get Goldmine 5.0 running well with this version of wine.
Goldmine has the ability to perform a DDE interface to format some
information and launch a word processor. Essentially, to fill in some
macro pieces before opening a template. I can get the interface to work
with OpenOffice.org Writer (both Goldmine and OOo running on Windows).
Is there a way, someone could recommend, to allow me to use this DDE
interface to launch OOo for Linux when running Goldmine using wine ?
The goal is to be free of Microsoft Windows. Unfortunately, Goldmine is
only available in Windows executable format. Goldmine is considered a
must have program (the users won't accept an alternative).
I was real excited when I was able to get Goldmine to work great using
wine. The only piece missing is the ability to click a button in
Goldmine to launch OOo to format a template document for sending to a
fax or printer. I would prefer to launch the native OOo for Linux
rather than running OOo for Windows using wine.
Any suggestions? Or am I out of luck ?
