Is there an easy way to run Rosetta Stone on Ubuntu?

Asked by Les (9612points) May 20th, 2009

I’ve done a quick Google search on this, and have gotten a few ideas, but I was wondering if anyone here in the collective has any personal experience with this. I’m a relative new Ubuntu user, and am not quite sure about all of the tricks to the so called trade, so any tips or your advice would be great.

Wine? But I doubt it would work smoothly.

Thanks for the answer. That’s what I found on my quick Google search, but I wasn’t so clear on how it actually worked. I guess I’ll have to do some more research. Thanks again!

In Synaptic, just search for Wine and install it. Ideally, you would run the CD with Wine, it would install, and everything would work perfectly. However, Wine can be troublesome.

When you want to run an application with Wine, be sure to check their AppDB beforehand. Rosetta Stone appears to work well :).

Usually, however, I really prefer to run native alternatives as applications through Wine feel really messy (though I also find applications on Windows to feel messy).
