Johan,

Yes, right and of course.

Here is one thing (of many) that turned me off when using Windows, too many people (businesses) wanting to know what I'm doing.

Take the media player phoning home, updating their database and writing cookies to keep track of the movies I might be watching.

I'd like to call the proprietor and say, "Hey snoop, get your bean counter and database out, because I have exciting news! I'm about to watch a movie!"

If they considered me insane, fine, because I consider them just as insane, if not criminally so, because the truth is THEY DO WANT TO KNOW. They even went to lengths so that they could know.

Just exactly what are you up to? Do you plan on editing an image? Maybe snoopy people falsely believe they have to know.

I might make a script called ntlm_auth like this:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
exit 0


It might not work but that is the exit code wanted.

Bottom line is I think something wants network authorization for something and I don't know what. But editing an image, if that's what you are doing is not something anyone needs know about.

Obviously, I don't know all the details so fill me in as you please. If you think my having more information will help me help you.

Bruce

What I actually do is shutdown the network before wine.

Read this on ntlm_auth.

Google is your friend.

Béèm,

I guessed it wants some kind of connectivity. Why? I don't know.

I went to the Adobe site and it told about Adobe Air benefits without really explaining what it is.

Maybe Johan will fill in gaps.

ups, I am offered to download a Linux version of Adobe Air.
Or is it just a runtime?

I can only guess that Adobe wants some identification to offer upgrades.
In Windows this is the case. Whenever I open Adobe to read a pdf, I am immediately confronted to update and that kind of things.

Just a wild guess.

I think that authentication is build in somehow in Windows without the knowledge of the ser.

The nls_auth error in Wine seems not to be the problem, the crash seems to have other reasons.
It also occured, when I copied the corrsponding files from Samba. The message disappered, but the application still crashes.


I found a way, to use the Linux version of Adobe Air.
But it is a bit complicated.
https://blog.kevintowes.ca/cfusion/webforums/forum/messageview.cfm?forumid=75&catid=697&threadid=1413594&enterthread=y

I need the Gnome sfs from wow, which is 87 MB.
Then the Air SDK.
Then some selfwritten scripts.

Now I do:
click on a App on the Adobe website.
http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/marketplace/index.cfm?event=marketplace.home&marketplaceid=1
It starts to install the app, and exits with an error.
Before I confirm, I copy the corresponding Flash folder from /tmp to a application folder.
Now I can launch the application with a script.

I think I might be able to write a small grafical tool for it at weekend.

However, before I would do that, please let me know, what app you need.
There are better solutions available I think, like Google Gadgets, Opera Widgets, or gdesklets.

I attach my scripts, copy them to /usr/local/bin/.
I extracted the SDK in:
/usr/local/AdobeAir
So I have for example:
/usr/local/AdobeAir/AIR SDK Readme.txt

I copied the Flash apps from /tmp to:
/usr/local/AdobeAir/apps
Like:
/usr/local/AdobeAir/apps/WorldWeather

I also attach a screenshot, that shows the required steps
