I am running Linux Mint Cinnamon 18.1 on a Dell Inspriron I7 w/ 8G memory, not dual boot. I installed Wine 1.6.2 from the Software Manager. I then installed Fugawi 4.5 using my original Windows based CDs (purchased from Fugawi) and the Fugawi update download for 4.5. The installation went well; I did need my original proof of purchase code. I then installed from CD a complete collection of Chartiff topo maps purchased years ago. That installation also went well. I can now launch Fugawi and browse the topos just as I had in Windows 7, moving from map to map using the pointer arrows to move to adjacent maps. It appears that all the geo-referencing is working as intended.
What does not
The Fugawi program does NOT show up in the Menu list of installed programs, but most of the subparts DO show up. Examples include "help", "map calibration", "release notes" and a couple others. However, the main program can be easily launched by simply running Fugawi45.exe in the folder "C:/program files(x86)/Fugawi/Fugawi". It appears to run as it did in Windows 7 and has not crashed.
What was not tested
I have not yet tested calibrating scanned maps, nor have I hooked up a GPS unit.
Linux Mint 18.1 OS. With more testing I might see this as a Platinum program. Seems to do everything I ever did on Win7.
