PRS 500 (updated) + ADE + Linux

I had a hardware failure and had to reinstall Linux on my computer. Calibre works fine, but I read a lot of ebooks from the library, so I need Adobe Digital Editions. I got that installed via WINE and it's working fine, but it doesn't "see" the reader. I know I got this to work in the past, but I can't find anything on it now.

Can anyone help me figure this out?

I just installed ADE with Wine. Try to cd to wine drive, and into the ADE directory to find the executable. On my system, the executable is at:

Quote:
~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Adobe/Adobe Digital Editions/digitaleditions.exe
It should be similar on your system.

You then execute it with:

Quote:
wine digitaleditions.exe

Plug your reader in and let it mount, then load ade. I found this was the only way I could get ade to see my reader (100% Linux user here)

I don't have any problems loading ADE. But even following Solicitous' advice, it isn't seeing the reader. Linux is seeing it just fine, but ADE isn't.

@brontus: If you haven't yet, you need to map the Linux mountpoint to a drive letter using winecfg. The drive needs to be of floppy type (Advanced settings).

I've tried that, and still nothing. I think I'm just going to give up and just reboot into windows whenever I need to use ADE.

I read somewhere that WINE doesn't support USB drivers? If that's the case, that is the problem because, despite the fact that the updated reader is seen as a mass storage device, ADE still will only recognize it if SONY drivers are installed.

Well, FWIW, I've used my Kobo Touch with ADE under Wine without problems. Transferred books and everything.
