Running TransTRBO in Wine on OS X with Bluetooth

Postby kc9kko » Sat Nov 28, 2015 12:03 am

Running TransTRBO on a Macbook Pro and Mac Mini on both Yosemite and El Capitan.

I connect to the radio with either cables or bluetooth. Currently I have only been able to establish a PAN connection to the radio for Data. No Audio as of yet over Bluetooth.

Prior to the Yosemite OS on OS X, I had been running Crossover for Mac by Codeweavers. It worked nicely with a bluetooth connection to the radio.
And the an update changed all of that. As of 2015/11/27 I have not been able to get Codeweavers to run TransTrbo. It would fault as soon as it tried to contact the radio.

For the last month I have been using Homebrew Wine 1.6.2. and have the TransTRBO 0.1.0.8 running smoothly.

This tutorial on "Wine on OS X" http://www.davidbaumgold.com/tutorials/wine-mac/
works pretty good.

1.Install Apple XCODE
install Xcode from the Mac App Store

2. Install XQuartz
XQuartz-2.7.8.dmg

Install HomeBrew (brew)

3. In Terminal use the command line below to install Homebrew
ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homeb ... er/install)"

4. In Terminal use the command line below to check Homebrew for errors, only fix those that are affecting your setup.
brew doctor

5. In Terminal use the command line below to activate the Apple XCODE license
sudo xcodebuild -license

6. In Terminal use the command line below to install the Wine Environment
brew install wine

7. Download the Radio Drivers for TransTRBO ( They are not included now)
http://www.transtrbo.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=44

http://www.transtrbo.com/files/rndis_driver_installation_0600.zip

( I downloaded them into my user account Downloads folder/directory)
( the expanded zip folder created a ~/Downloads/rndis_driver_installation directory )

8. In Terminal use the command line below to install the Radio drivers
wine ~/Downloads/rndis_driver_installation/setup.exe

9. Download the TransTRBO Full install
http://www.transtrbo.com/files/setup0108.zip

( I downloaded them into my user account Downloads folder/directory)
( the expanded zip folder created a ~/Downloads/TransTRBO_0108_setup.exe )

10. In Terminal use the command line below to install the TransRTBO
wine ~/Downloads/TransTRBO_0108_setup.exe

11. Either connect the programming cable to the radio or pair a PAN connection to the radio using bluetooth.
A cable connection using the default radio TCPIP scheme will use a ip address of 192.168.10.2 for the Computer and 10.1 for the radio.
The bluetooth connection using the default radio TCPIP scheme will use a ip address of 192.168.11.2 for the Computer and 11.1 for the radio.
( Note I often will change the default radio TCPIP scheme to use a ip address of 192.168.9.2 for the Computer and 9.1 for the radio. )
( This makes the Bluetooth use a ip address of 192.168.10.2 for the Computer and 10.1 for the radio, just like the cable connection.)
( But then the radio is not using the standard TCPIP address scheme and will be different when you use a cable i.e.. 9.1 instead of 10.1 )

12. In Terminal use the command line below to run the TransRTBO program
wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/TransTRBO/TransTRBO.exe

13. Setup TransTRBO , including registering the radio with the TransTRBO code.

14. To make running TransTRBO easier under OS X create an icon for it from an AppleScript command file.

15. In Terminal use the command line below to run the Apple Script Editor program
( it is in the Applications / Utilities )

16. In the Apple Script Editor enter the following

tell application "Terminal"
do script "/usr/local/bin/wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\\ Files/TransTRBO/TransTRBO.exe"
end tell

17. Press the compile button ( hammer icon on the right of menu bar )
( it should turn the "do script" blue in the text above )

18. Save the script USING THE APPLICATION type format and name it i.e. TransTRBO

19. Copy the saved script "application" to the Applications Folder.
( and if you like you can copy it to the Dock for easier access. )

Hi kc9kko,

Thanks very must for that post - I'm sure there will be plenty of Hams (and others) who will benefit from your detailed instructions.

cheers
