Carrara in Wine
I know this isn't supported but... I'm trying to use Carrara in Wine which is something I've done before on a different computer. I remember there was something that I needed to do for things to work right, but I can't remember what it was. It was someone in this forum that solved it for me before, but I can't remember who and private messages from the old site are no more.
What I had handy was C8.5-149, which may be problematic under Wine all by itself so that might be an issue. The host operating system is Kubuntu 12.04. I just installed Wine and it appears to be v1.4.
The installation itself went fine and Carrara started up. Made a basic scene and all was good until I went to render it. That caused an immediate error and subsequently the current window cannot be changed from the render window. I've tried switching rooms and using the Windows menu to select other windows, but it doesn't work.
I'm hoping whoever it was that was kind enough to help before sees this, but if anyone has input I'm happy to hear it.
