Aerodrums on Wine

Post by germadez » Sun Dec 20, 2015 6:05 pm

Hi,

I'm a Linux user and I'd love to acquire Aerodrums. Unfortunately, as far as I checked there is no official support (yet) for this OS.

My question is... did anyone try to run it on Linux using Wine? It seems that at least there are drivers available for the Eye camera.

Thanks in advance.

Cheers,
G

Tested on Linux Mint 17.2 Xfce

Ps3 Eye Camera work out of box with Cheese but not in Wine.
I was able to install/run the software but cannot setup the drum due to the unrecognized camera.
Hope there is a way to let Wine know that a USB camera is connected.I've tried with the Drives option in Wine Config but didn't work.Seem to be the last step to solve anyway but i didn't find any good infos.Also read this:

I can get the PS3 Eye camera to work under wine with MyCam, it gets recognized as "UVC Camera (1415:2000)". I wonder if the Aerodrums software can be told to use this camera. Maybe Aerodrums staff can shed some light on it? Would be great to know. Thanks! :-D

Unfortunately it can't... In order to have precise control over camera configuration, Aerodrums uses a custom Windows driver for the camera, not a generic one.

Thanks for the answer! That's unfortunate, as Wine can not talk to the USB subsystem by itself. So we won't be able to use Aerodrums under Wine. But maybe, just maybe, there will be a native Linux version at some point. :-)

I'm sure you can tap into the community for help if you really consider porting the software. OpenGL and GUI programming is not a big deal, and I'm sure your custom algorithms can be ported easily. And you're using libusb anyway. I love the kit, it is a lot of fun. :-)

Cheers!

Hello,

we are perhaps close to aerodrums support by wine-6.0. It has now builtin usb support.

But i still can't figure out how to make it work with wine and linux.

BR,

What gives lsusb in a terminal? If you see your camera in there it cannot work because Aerodrums needs the Windows driver developed by themselves.

lsusb indicates that the camera is recognized. I connected the camera to an USB hub. This configuration works on windows but may be i could try without the hub.

Ok so the wine usb layer will have no impact on aerodrums compatibility with wine then ? :roll:

No, I think this is the problem. You need to be sure the camera isn’t installed automatically. Aerodrums will not work with the driver integrated in your kernel (if there is one). For me the camera shouldn’t be installed by your sub-system. It cannot work with 2 different drivers. You could try to block the driver for the Device 008: ID 1415:2000 Nam Tai E&E Products Ltd. or OmniVision Technologies, Inc. Sony Playstation Eye being used. You could find out which one by doing dmesg in a terminal after having disconnected the camera, waited 20 seconds and reconnected it. There should be something at the end of the list of dmsg.
And you need to install the original Aerodrums Windows driver in Wine (there is a file named aerodrums-camera-installer.exe in the Camera folder you could try to run as administrator, but I don’t know if it will work) and I hope there is a paththrough in Wine to your USB-subsystem. But I know nothing about Wine. Today I’m using Linux only for my headless servers.
