[Linux OS] - how to use RadioBOSS
« on: January 09, 2018, 11:14:04 AM »
RadioBOSS works acceptably fine under Wine in Linux based operating systems.

Example shows how to run RadioBOSS under Ubuntu Linux.

1. Install Wine: https://wiki.winehq.org/Ubuntu
Usually, it's enough to execute the following commands in terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T):
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386

wget -nc https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/Release.key
sudo apt-key add Release.key
sudo apt-add-repository https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install --install-recommends winehq-stable

2. Download and install RadioBOSS.
When you run RadioBOSS installer, Wine will ask to install additional components (Gecko, etc) - everything should be installed - just click the Install button to do so.

3. Run RadioBOSS. Everything should start with no errors.

Limitations
1. RadioBOSS uses Windows fonts (Tahoma by default). In order to properly display the UI, it's recommended to change fonts to native ones in Style settings: http://manual.djsoft.net/radioboss/en/viewstyle_settings.htm
2. WMA file format will not work and cause errors
3. If inputs or microphone does not work, try selecting WASAPI driver instead of DirectSound.

Hi Dmitry
3. If inputs or microphone does not work, try selecting WASAPI driver instead of DirectSound.
Playback works like a charm, but microphone don't.
- DirectSound: no input sound
- WASAPI: only short distorted sounds, no voice or something


Listen to the sound in the attachments. Also see to the screenshot of my settings.

I am using Zorin OS (a derivate of Ubuntu 16.04 LTS) with wine-devel 3.7

Any ideas? :)

You can try increasing the "Prebuffer" size - in RadioBOSS Settings, Inputs, click the Advanced button and increase the "WASAPI Input prebuffer" size, try making it 10 times larger, 0.2 or 0.5 sec.

Hello Dmitry, under Wine RadioBoss is working flawlessly.
But in some place it doesn't show icons.
I will attach a screenshot.
Dmitry, tell me please, from where RadioBoss is taking that icons ?

Thanks in advance for your answer.

It appears that Wine does not support icons for standard buttons. I don't think there's anything can be done about it as it appears to be Wine limitation - it may start supporting this feature at some point in the future. I suggest updating Wine to the latest version, just in case.
