iTunes-U and Linux

Are you a dedicated linux fan? Bumming ‘cuz there’s no linux version of iTunes? Really wanting to have access to all the university media in the iTunes store? This could be what you’ve been waiting for: TunesViewer. Yup, comes with either .deb installer for Ubuntu/Debian distros or .rpm installer for Fedora/Red Hat flavors. You can get it here: http://tunesviewer.sourceforge.net/. Download it, install it, and it works. The first time it runs you get the option for browser integration; that works, too, at least with FireFox. It doesn’t have tons of bells and whistles but it works as advertised and does it well. And for those who want to pursue distance learning in a linux environment, it meets a great need.

BibleWorks 7 Help Files and Ubuntu

I think I stumbled on something quite by accident. The help files started working in BibleWorks 7 in Wine. I believe it’s related to a fix I came up with for another application. I managed to get Web2HH working by copying 2 “real” dll files to the system32 folder. They are itircl.dll and itss.dll. They are both included in Wine overrides as (native, builtin) under Default Settings. Maybe the key to fixing a long-standing problem?
