    [WINE] USB Help?

    So I have this Ion Discover DJ kit, which came with MixVibe's Cross software. The software appears to work in WINE, except for the fact that it won't let me do anything unless the kit's connected. That's how the software is supposed to run. Problem is, the USB kit I need to run won't work with WINE.

    Also, when I type "winecfg" into terminal I get this message:

    fixme:mixer:ALSO_MixerInit No master control found on Ion Discover DJ, disabling mixer

    Thing works fine on Linux, Mixxx even recognizes that it is the Ion Discover DJ midi controller, although Mixxx won't let me use the jog wheels, which is why I need this.

    (Mixxx isn't run through WINE)

    The precompiled version of Wine, available at the Ubuntu repositories, does not support USB connections (I guess this is because this feature is not tested).

    If you wish to use a USB device through Wine, you will need to download the source code, apply a patch and compile.

    Here you can find some instructions:

    As I said before, the solution is to compile wine from source indicating you want USB support.
    You can follow instructions in the link in my previous post.

    I tried the instructions in the link, but the patch fails to apply.

    Hi sabersong. What sorts of error messages do you get when you try to apply the patches? I just applied them and it worked.

    I'll be testing out a program running under wine which needs to connect to devices via usb tomorrow. I'll post back here with my experiences. If it all worked I'll post a HOWTO.

    Still working on it...

    Now I must rant.

    The Windows registry, and REGEDIT, which is used to view it are the ugliest things I have ever seen in all of computerdom!
