I am trying to run WFPro in Linux (Ubuntu Natty). I get this error upon
launch:

/.wf_workspace/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.ui.workbench/dialog_settings.xml
(No such file or directory)

There is an old posting in this forum that described this problem and advised
to install ia32-sun-java6-bin

I googled and found ia32-sun-java6-bin_6.24-1build0.10.10.1_amd64.deb but it
fails to install, because it depends on sun-java6-jre, which is not available
for Ubuntu Natty. The ia32-sun-java6-bin package was compiled for Ubuntu
Maverick.

Is there any way, any workaround to run WF Pro on 64-bit Linux?

Thanks, marko, it helped indeed. I can run Wordfast Pro in Kubuntu Natty 11.04 now.

similar but different Jan 26, 2014

I downloaded the WFPro demo for gnu/linux, on a Debian 7 Wheezy system,
AMD64 architecture.

I can not get it to run.
I get

$ ./Wordfast
./Wordfast: error while loading shared libraries: libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0:
cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

But that library IS installed!

$ locate libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libgtk-x11-2.0.so

Right where it should be and always is.
I have the ia32-libs installed, which I understand are needed.

well, to answer my own question Jan 26, 2014

It seems there's just no way to get WFp to run on 64 linux, natively.
I have succeeded, however, in running the 32bit Windows version with wine.

moot Jan 26, 2014

Actually, it DIDN't run with wine (the installer did, so I thought I was out of the woods, but WFP itself failed).

Nonetheless, it seems this may have become a moot point.

I have succeeded in getting OmegaT to properly function with my client's pretranslated TXML files.

I had used OmegaT with untranslated TXML before, but with the pretranslated files, I was unable to see the source in pretranslated segments. For some reason the source had been replaced with the client's pretranslated (although fuzzy matches that require editing) target. So that was not viable, and I was looking at WFP.

But with the Okapi plugin, it works as desired in OmegaT (shows me the source, then the client's translation appropriately as a fuzzy match, so I can edit it before "committing" it).
