Thank you for informative article :)

A question for you please, Since you have written article new Linux distributions/versions have been built. I was thinking of using Ubuntu latest desktop version as of 9apr2008

Do you believe your article is relevant to latest distributions?

Thank you again for article...

I`m running MT4 under Ubuntu/Wine, i am unable to change any Indicator variable values, i need to compile them within MetaEditor prior or it won`t be editable later on. Cannot change properties of an object such as fibo retracement tool neither. Any work around? I`m back to XP just because of that.

I'm running Terminal under Fedora, and on the wineHQ site it have been told to use a windows version of comctl32.dll regarding of you wine "version". So if you use wine as "Windows XP" version you have to use a Windows XP version of comctl32.dll.



Regards.

I would love to know that too. I just installed the new Ubuntu 9.04 and I'm very pleased to run all the apps from before, the only one left is MT4.

why doesn't metaquotes provide linux and mac builds of metatrader?


I don't really understand it. These days it getting harder and harder to even find development tools/toolkits/frameworks that are not cross platform.
