Introduction

controlSUITE is not yet supported under Linux operating systems. We are planning on supporting it in the future.

Following are instructions for installing controlSUITE under Linux (with limited support) using Wine. These instructions have only been tested with the 32-bit version of Ubuntu Linux 10.04.

Setup

Install Wine

Before controlSUITE can be installed, Wine must be present in the system.

In Ubuntu, go to Applications->Ubuntu Software Center.

Final Note

The controlSUITE.exe application that is installed will not work under Wine. All of the files will have to be manually imported into controlSUITE.
