Execute Companion on Ubuntu
#1
Has anyone tried using wine or some other method to run the companion on a linux box. I don't use companion anymore as I trashed my last machine running Windoze.  I am retired now and for much of my working life I had to use some form of MS crap. But I have to say I did like running the Companion. Its easier to do some editing quickly with it.

I ran it a while ago as an app in Androidx86 in virtualbox on mint. I don't recall the details but I was impressed.

I seem to recall (my memory is retired, too Smile) that Companion runs okay under Wine. I haven't used it for a long time.

I maintain all my MSPro songs on the Linux box, and rsync to Android.

on chromebook/MSP, I

1. keep a separate directory of original chordpro files (in case I need to import on different platform)
2. make daily MSP backups to dropbox/drive using built-in function
3. download them to main linux box occasionally.

I'm cautious about losing all the editing work I've done but open to more efficient suggestions!
