Hi everyone. I installed it and it works like a charm. Everything but the microphone! I'm using ALSA as my driver and Wine doesn't recognize my USB mic at all, though ALSA has no trouble finding it outside of Wine.
I know it's a common problem and so I googled around for a solution. I thought I found one in making a .asoundrc file and declaring the address of my mic...
... and it actually does recognize it. Trouble is, once the mic is recognized it fails to recognize my playback device, even though when left to default it has no trouble finding it. Thus I'm left with the lesser of two evils, no mic at all, again.
I'm at my wit's end with this, so I hope a more sagacious user can help me out here. :)
Wine can't find the .exe file
by StephenG on Monday August 3rd 2009, 17:11
When I do a search for "setup.exe" on the computer, I get no responses. In terminal, when I type "cd /cdrom" the command line switches to the CD drive but an "ls" command gets nothing. If I put an audio CD in I get music and I installed Ubuntu on this drive about 2 months ago, so it seems to be working and being recognized by the system. I'm using Wine 1.1.26 and RS 3.4.3A. The drive absolutely seems to be mounting properly. If I put in the Ubuntu install disc, everything is fine. I can browse to my heart's content. If I put in a disc with Windows files (and I've tried several), however, the drive mounts and the browser opens but there are no files there. Recap: audio files work fine (app opens and they play), Linux files are there and usable, Windows files are unfindable (with or without hidden files option checked). My machine is only Ubuntu, no dual boot-Windows. I've tried every combination of "Wine setup.exe" I can imagine. Nothing finds that setup file on the CD. Ideas, anyone?
Working in Ubuntu Intrepid 8.10

Here's how I got this version working in Linux/Ubuntu intrepid(8.10). See bottom of post for how to install the language packs. I can't use any updates as they seem to mess up Rosetta.
NOTE: If using Pulse Audio remember to always run "padsp wine" instead of "wine". You also run "padsp winecfg" and go to the audio tab and select OSS. This will give you sound.
The uninstaller doesn't work too well for me, it just seems to reinstall the current version. Here's how to remove previous versions
~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Rosetta Stone
~/.wine/drive_c/windows/profiles/All Users/Application Data/Rosetta Stone
Not sure about this one, it might be needed for something other than Rosetta.
~/.wine/drive_c/windows/profiles/All Users/Application Data/FLEXnet
Make it executable.
chmod +x ./winetricks
Install needed stuff.
./winetricks msxml3; ./winetricks flash; ./winetricks ie6; ./winetricks native_oleaut32
Install Rosetta and untick the checkbox at the end of install(the one asking if you want to launch Rosetta).
Open a text editor and put in the below 4 lines in a file called rosettastone.(Thanks to Matt Moen at appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=10043) #!/bin/bash
cd $HOME/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Rosetta\ Stone/Rosetta\ Stone\ Version\ 3
# remember to change the below "wine" to "padsp wine" if you use pulse audio.
Make it executable.
chmod +x rosettastone
Finally run it.
