okay so i figured out i can use adobe digital edition in wine....but my issue is that when i go through wine and iexplorer i get an error in downloading and installing adobe DE....

i used winetricks to get flash installed on the browsers under wine....but no luck...also i am using wine 1.1.12 i installed from source i guess i need to update source tree to get the new wine 1.1.32 which might help me out....

i just need adobe DE to work so i am not depending on windows vista anymore...

What excactly do you need it for? If it's just for organizing books and transfering them to an ebook-reader, calibre(in portage) does this job very well - at least for my PRS-600.

Besides, what error (paste the output!) are you talking about?

the only way u can get a copy of adobe DE is through their website or by copying the files from your windows partition....my issue is i try to install from the dang website through wine's internet explorer with flash plugins and it just says it cannot download error....or something like that...

so should i just try and copy the dand .zip file from windows partition then just cabextract it?

Well, if the other way doesn't work and you (can't) provide exact errormessages, that seems to be your way to go. Still, what are you trying to achieve with DE?

it is very abstract and vage about what the error is the stupid website doesn't give me any message besides error to install....maybe it just is very difficult to spoof the website into downloading the adobe DE on a non-windows/mac system...

i will try to cabextract it...
