3 mobile text function

Postby the jatsman » Tue Jan 12, 2010 9:11 pm

I use 3 mobile and now that I am running Linux Mint I don't need to use the proprietary software to connect to the internet as this is automated for me by Linux's network manager, however this means I can't use my free texts allowance from 3 unless I switch back to my Windows partition, so, has anyone been able to install this on Linux? and how?

Thanks.

Your only way (I think) would be Wine or Virtualbox. (and in my experience wine never works with anything useful, so that doesn't leave you much choice!)

Wine, of course, I have used it for a couple of things, I will try that and if no good I will try this Virtual Box, thanks for replying Viking, it's no biggee obviously, just annoying, so cheers.
