Installation Instructions

We cheated and pulled an already installed version of the thin client on a windoze box and dumped it on a Linux box with WINE installed. I cannot see though why it would fail to install from scratch, but thats for you guys to fill in, I have better things to do they play with this junk :)

Once its lurking on your filesystem, append to your ~/.wine/user.reg file the following




[Software\Wine\AppDefaults\siebtc.exe\X11 Driver]


The win2003 version that is used depending on the dll source for msvcrt.dll, you should set this to what ever version of windoze you pulled the DLL from. Do *not* use the builtin version otherwise all your dates will be Jan 1st 1900 IIRC. You probably also will want to tweak the 'Desktop' resolution too.

For all the DLL's 'native'd above you should copy them from the windoze box and dump them in the Siebel directory.

Also you might find useful in there:



Once you have done all of this all you need to do is:

$ LANG=en_GB wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Siebel/BIN/siebtc.exe /host "" /lang="ENU" /u username /p password

remember to replace 'en_GB' with your locale (otherwise the dates will be in US style) and the 'username' and 'password' respectively; depending on your country 'lang' will probably want changing too. If you leave out the '/u' and '/p' bits Siebel will simply present you with a login box, you can use those parameters to skip the 'boring' bit.

After that, simply remember *not* to flip to a different virtual desktop (in fluxbox at least) whilst the mouse focus is on Siebel otherwise it will die....

Wine compatibility
What works:
- pretty much everything it seems. We have had no problems with it at all except for...

What doesn't work:
- switch desktops. If you switch desktop (change desktop under fluxbox) whilst the focus is in the application then it dies horribly, you should have some sloppy focus model and move the mouse off the screen

- running the app in non-desktop mode. From what I can tell the application its-self is terrible written and actually writes to read-only windows after they have been created and so X tells it exactly where to shove the idea. Might be worth the wine developers adding an option to override the read-only goodness of window creation to always force a read-write window.

What was not tested:
- installation
