Additional Comments

First, download the client. Then, run wine ~/Desktop/TalkShoeSetup_windows.exe Install, then run this: cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/TalkShoe/ mkdir ~/.talkshoe cp -r * ~/.talkshoe cd ~/.talkshoe Create a bash script like this: #!/bin/bash dir=$HOME/.talkshoe cd $dir for d in $(ls "${dir}/lib") do cpath="${cpath}${dir}/lib/${d}:" done java -Dtalkshoe.appdir=$dir/ -classpath ${cpath}console.jar com.pcs.client.AutoUpdateClient $1 Save it as in your home folder. Now, go back to the terminal and type this in: mv ~/ ~/.talkshoe/ chmod +x ~/.talkshoe/ Now go to Firefox, and type in "about:config" in the address bar. Right click somewhere, and go to "New > Boolean". Enter "network.protocol-handler.external.tksh", click OK, then double click on true Right click again, go to "New > String". Type in "" and click OK, then type in "/home/username/.talkshoe/" and click OK (change "username" to your username). There you go! Restart Firefox, and you should be able to run TalkShoe. Please leave comments if this worked/didn't work for you, so I can make modifications if necessary. The only issue with this is, due to how Java opens the sound device, you can't have any applications running that create sound when you start TalkShoe, and once it is started, other applications will not be able to play sound. If you want to remedy this, you can install aoss (in Ubuntu, install the package alsa-oss) and modify the file "~/.talkshoe/" so that the line that begins with "java" reads like this: "aoss java -Dtalkshoe..."
