Title: Why isn't there a WiiWhiteboard for Linux Ubuntu???
Post by: fiftybottles on April 21, 2008, 10:51:38 AM
There should be a WiiWhiteboard for Linux. I use it, and have a very functional Wii and Bluetooth connector. After downloading WiiWhiteboard, I oticed that it was a .exe. Linux can't run these!!!! Please make one for Linux. :'(

Are you sure you have checked the Linux section ?

http://www.wiimoteproject.com/index.php?board=29.0

seems to work just fine...

Linux Whiteboard - New version (0.3) available at least works under previous version of Ubuntu (use a liveCD if you (like me) installed Ubuntu and it is up to date...

(the problem for me here is that if I use a liveCD I need to install unsupported drivers and they need a reboot (great idea running LiveCD...)

 ??? I'm not exactly a full grown man, so I don't really know what your talking about here. And, yes, I have the latest version of Ubuntu. If there's a link for downloading LiveCD, then please... GIVE IT!

As the linux-version of VRdesktop doesnt support the latest version of Ubuntu - you simple need to find an older one... (check name in linux thread posted above)

All Ubuntu CD's can be booted LIVE as in running from CD into RAM without installing to HDD (all versions does that prior to installation)

and a link....don't have one...

EDIT: spelling

Lol, you don't have to be a full grown man to use the LinuxWiiWhiteboard,
as he said, its in the Linux section, there is already a program, just download it, install it and use it, if you're on the right distro.
