Prerequisite: I don’t know any. All I know, I am using GNU/Linux Gentoo and I can play Steam well with WINE.
On random surf, I stumble upon TweetDeck’s site and got this:
TweetDeck by Twitter
I have a strict rule of not using third party application. With Big Data on business, I don’t want my data get mined freely. I know I am paranoid, but, hey, that’s me.
Anyway, the site suggests that TweetDeck is a part of Twitter now. Sweet! Now I can install this Twitter client without worry. (I hope)
Do it already!
Download the file:
$ wget https://downloads.tweetdeck.com/windows/TweetDeck.msi
Install the file:
$ wine msiexec /i TweetDeck.msi
In my time of writing, TweetDeck doesn’t make any shortcut. Maybe because of my exotic desktop manager (E17). You could create it yourself. Here’s the TweetDeck.desktop example:
[Desktop Entry] Name=TweetDeck Exec=env WINEPREFIX="/home/USER/.wine" wine C:\\\\windows\\\\command\\\\start.exe /Unix /home/USER/.wine/dosdevices/c:/users/USER/Start\\ Menu/Programs/TweetDeck/TweetDeck.lnk Type=Application StartupNotify=true Path=/home/USER/.wine/dosdevices/c:/Program Files (x86)/Twitter/TweetDeck/ Icon=0C58_TweetDeck.0
Change USER with your real username.
