[Paparazzi-devel] u-center under Linux

Just FYI but I got u-center working under Linux. I have Ubuntu 7.10 so I just 
installed WINE (sudo apt-get install wine) then downloaded the u-center 

I ran the .exe installer (choose open with "wine"). And it installed without an 
issue. Even put a menu item under "Applications/wine/programs"

For the COM1 port do this:
 cd ~/.wine/dosdevices/
 ln -s /dev/ttyUSB0 com1 <--assumes FTDI cable is seen as /dev/ttyUSB0

The above sets com1 for u-center to use.

Plug everything in like you would under that other OS and run u-center. Worked 
great. Email me if you would like more explicit directions. Now you don't have 
to buy|install an expensive OS just to setup the GPS.
