The programming editor and simulator function and the USB download cable (axe027) also works after extra files have been installed and the cable is set up as a COM port.
What does not
There are some small visual glitches and the program does not show up on the taskbar when running on my system (I used the alt tab switcher to change to the program)
What was not tested
I have not yet programmed a chip with the system.
Here are the steps I used to get it to run. install picaxe programming editor using the normal installer install winetricks run "winetricks mfc40" to install the dependencies follow the instructions on the picaxe website to install the axe027 cable under linux run "sudo adduser *your user* dialout" to allow serial port access run "ln -s /dev/ttyUSB0 com1" in .wine/dosdevices (you may need to change "ttyUSB0" to match the name of your device) restart your computer
