Winbox/Dude Client for LINUX and/or Mac OS/X

Mon Oct 07, 2019 2:45 pm

Hi there!
I tried to search around in the internet, but did not find anything.

Actually the only way to run WINBOX or Dude on Linux Oses or MacOS/X is to install it under WINE.
It works fine, but this method is too limitative for me, and goes often on crash.

Does anybody know if Mkt is compiling something that run direcly on Linux Based Operating systems?

It would be a great deal for us!!!

No, they don't.
But wine winbox/dude from http://joshaven.com work flawlessly for most people on this forum.

Yes it works great also for me, but:

- cannot drag and drop files from winbox
- dude sometimes show a blank window that cannot be closed unless you kill wine
- winbox sometimes crashes
- dude sometimes crashes

This happen both on ubuntu and mac os x mohave (or previous)

Can't confirm the crashes to be a serious issue.
I guess I only experienced winbox to crash only several times for the last couple of years.
But I'm on high sierra.

And the inability to drag-n-drop from winbox, well, could be a major issue for a file server client, but not for a router configuring software.
You need just few extra clicks, and then you can then drag-n-drop it from the desktop.
It would be worse, if it was unable to drag-n-drop to winbox, not from it.

Hi There....

I made the mistake to upgrade my OS-X from Mojave to Cataline (without reading that support to 32 bit executable).

So, now I cannot run Wine Stable anymore.

Does anyone know a workaround to make it RUN on mac?
