My employer is in the process of signing up for Amazon Chime. The challenge for me is that means I need to be able to communicate with them using the tool on my Ubuntu Desktop. At this point, I’m not sure how that’s going to happen!
My First Reactions
I haven’t had the opportunity to use the tool very much, but we have had a couple of meetings so far. We have been using Zoom and Go To Meeting. Zoom has a client app that you have to install, but they do have a nice Linux client. Go To Meeting does have a nice Web Client. I can share my desktop and connect with my headset just from the webapp with out installing anything. Chime has a webapp, but it is very limited. I can’t use my headset nor share my screen. To me, that’s not acceptable for using with clients.
Attempt on Wine
Amazon Chime For Linux
I tried Scivision’s commands:
I get this error message:
I tried installing these items:
None of those seem to have made much difference. It does actually install here:
I can try to launch it with this:
But, it fails to run the app itself.
I tried with mono: Bartender.
3rd attempt (I found that there is some issue with Winetricks, and it wasn’t really installing dotnet 4.0)
I had to download the dotnet framework from here:
I also tried PlayOnLinux. I got a few more meaniful error messages and it let me try different Wine versions better.
Warning: This seems to have broke my system! XWindows wouldn’t work after this, so I think it was these two packages.
Amazon Chime For Linux Os
In the end, I was not successful. I can’t get any part of Chime to work! Please comment if you get anything.
