RMS Express 1.5 broken on Linux

Looks like RMS Express 1.5 is broken on Linux when following my previous posting.

I suspect it may be an issue with the .NET libraries, I’ll keep looking for a solution.

To revert back to 1.4.4:

Run “Uninstall Wine Programs” from your Wine folder on your menu.

Select RMS Express and Uninstall.

Unzip Winlink Express Install 1-4-4 and double click the installer.

Install with defaults.

Winlink Express Install 1-4-2.zip
Winlink Express Install 1-4-3.zip
Winlink Express Install 1-4-4.zip

  1. Thanks for the post, glad it wasnt just me that had trouble when updating. Do you know if the uninstall will wipe the local personal mail folders or will that personal data be retained with the reinstall?

  2. Your data is saved between uninstalls. I’ve done several uninstalls and my call sign data stays put.

  3. I’ve tried your Winlink Express install procedures on LinuxMint 18 and met with failures.
    Any clues or helpful hints?

  4. Others have reported issues with Mint 18 and Ubuntu 16. You’d have to downgrade to Mint 17.3.

    ARDOP is looking as a promising replacement.

  5. Started with a fresh install of 32-bit Linux Mint 17.3 Cinnamon onto a USB drive, followed your great instructions uWinlink Express Install 1-4-4.zipsing the Winlink Express Install 1-4-4.zip as you suggested and it works like a champ. The oWinlink Express Install 1-4-4.zipnly bump in the road was adding the various groups to my linux user. Had to do that through the GUI using Settings, Administration, Users and Groups, selecting my user, clicking on the group list on the right side of the frame and then hitting the check boxes for the necessary groups. The 1.4.4 version of Winlink doesn’t support my KX3, but that’s a small price to pay for finally being Windows-free. Thanks for your great instructions.

  6. Let’s try that post again. Something strange was going on with unexpected text additions.

  7. Both RMS Express 1.4.4.0 and the latest 1.5.* versions “run” under Fedora 25/26. Connection to CMS via telnet session seems to work flawlessly. BUT, the messages disappear after download! Nothing seems to be stored in the inbox. Also, creating a message works fine until the “post to outbox” step. At that point the program does nothing when the post to outbox or save to draft buttons are clicked. When closing the new message window the program warns that the message hasn’t been posted. When trying to view the logs via the progam “log” menu option, nothing is displayed for any of the available logs selected and instead a blank dialog box is displayed with an “OK” button.
