just wondering .... when will coreldraw be available on linux?
today, corel is the only application which holds me back from switching
FosterCoburn said:Corel has announced no plans now or in the future to port to Linux. Obviously that could change tomorrow, but as of today there are no plans.
there's a very big community of graphic designers from all over the world that work with corel X4 and would like to get it to work on linux.
we beg you to find a solution - maybe work with wine or crossover.
Xandros was Corel Linux. Draw ran under that in version 9 I think as a WINE application.
X4 may or may not run under WINE 1.0 if you move some win DLLs into the installation. There is no published information on what is required.
If you work it out we would all like to know the details.
If you look into web history there are documents that clearly state that Corel devoted a significant effort to help the WINE crew around version 9. Corel were regarded as serious and highly respected contributors to the WINE project.
After that what happened??? Corel were 'helped' my Microsoft, sold Corel Linux (now Xandros) and there's been no mention of Linux since.
1 + 1 = 2 2 + 2 = 4
Chances of Corel going back into Linux??? (Lots less likely than a Ventura come back.) At least I think that is a resonable observers assumption.

There's a big difference. Corel is still owner of CorelVentura and is still a part of the software list on the Corel web. Only needs an update or a newest version. But CorelLinux is no more a part of the company, and there's no more support for Linux. There's no way to create a Linux version compatible with the actual CorelDRAW. It's like to develop a new software.
Corel could get Draw operating under WINE they have before. X4 gets a garbage rating on WINE, doesn't install.
It only has 3 votes of need... Might require a log in but you can vote to get apps a priority and you can donate cash.
I suspect if I were easy it would still run under WINE on Linux.
info-data said:I think Corel company intentionally/deliberately creates new versions NOTindependent. new versions dependent of MS netframework. I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY??????????????
Yes, you're right. CorelDRAW is fully integrated to Windows, using part of the interface, and also the .NET Framework and Microsoft VBA and VisualStudio macros. There's no chances of CorelDRAW for Linux in the future,
