Works. Tested a couple of light apps only so far.

I have four applications I run under Wine. One locks up when I attempt to view a recipe (it's MasterCook II recipe manager and I do need it). It used to work well.

I don't know if it's the new version of Wine or something to do with RC4 or something else. I haven't had a chance to reinstall MasterCook. Will do that and see if that fixes it. If not, I'll see if going back a version or two fixes it.

The other three applications have worked fine so far.

GrannyGeek:  Off topic, but... Have you tried any of the recipe software written for Linux?  If so, how did it fall short?

Yes, I have. I tried something whose name I have forgotten. It was a Java program and I don't think they're doing anything more with it. It was much less flexible and harder to use than MasterCook. There's another one I've heard of but have forgotten the name. It had a lot of dependencies (Gnome dependencies?) and was too hard to install. There were other things I didn't like.

Whatever I use would have to be able to import the recipes from MasterCook, including categories. I don't want to do the work all over. MasterCook exports in standard formats--actually, the MasterCook text format is considered a sort of standard.

MasterCook worked just about perfectly under Wine until I tried it today. I hadn't installed Wine on VL6 since the release candidates, so I don't know at what point things broke. I may remove the latest Wine and go back to an older version to see if that fixes it. I do know that some programs that worked well with earlier Wines may stop working on a later Wine. Or I may just wait until Final comes out and work things out then. It should be pretty soon, I think.

If you know of good recipe managers for Linux, let me know what they are. I haven't looked in quite a while.

GrannyGeek:  I haven't looked lately but you've inspired me to do some looking.  I'll see what I can find, see what I can build, and maybe together we'll find something good.  The one I remember half liking was a KDE program but I can't remember the name right now.

UPDATE:  The one I tried before was krecipes.  I've downloaded source code for krecipes, gourmet and anymeal.  We'll see what it takes to build them...

This update "trashed" the fonts in e-Sword. I haven't tried other apps yet.

Hi Mike&Cindi

My E-Sword is fine under wine-1.1.14 - perhaps try reinstalling E-Sword see if that makes a difference.

It's working fine here fonts look quite good.

I'll give it a shot and update to the latest e-Sword while I'm at it. Would you suggest doing all the install steps from scratch or just run the e-Sword installer?

I'd do it all from scratch. 
let me know how you make out I'm running E-Sword 798 I think it is.

I've been looking for a replacement for MasterCook on Linux as well, especially the nutritional analysis part.  Besides the programs you mentioned, there's also nut http://nut.sourceforge.net/ which looks like it doesn't have a lot of dependencies (http://packages.debian.org/sid/nut-nutrition).  The other program I ran across required Gnome, http://gnutrition.sourceforge.net/

Not sure if any of the programs mentioned support import of recipes in Mastercook format (the text format, not the actual database files), but it would be nice if someone runs across an Open Source program that can do that.

Also, worst case scenario, one could keep their recipes online and access through the web.  Here's a site that does that kind of thing including nutritional information:

gourmet does support Mastercook format.  It looks to be the most promising of the lot.  I'll build them as time permits and then folks can explore the options and make their own choices.

Went with the latest 8.0.6 and still the font appearance is terrible. It seems as if anti-aliasing is not working for me in this release. I'll stick with 1.1.4 and wait for the next one.

Since I didn't how to use wine at the time, I found a linux program last fall that used those modules.  I've lost it due to many re-installs.  Once I get a stable system, I'll start looking for it again.
