Legacy will not work using WINE. (or didn't last time they tested it)

Bummer.  Looks like I will have to use my windows vista to use Legacy that i already have.

I have tried Gramps but do not like it.

Is there a better one that is free

Cheers

This one was mentioned in another thread. It will work on Ubuntu.

Not sure what it is like though.

Yes, extract the files, but not yet until I have tried to use Legacy in Linux Mint which is compatable to Ubuntu using Wine. By the way Swebby, when was that test carried out (legacy/Wine on Ubuntu?)

Is there a better one that is free

I did manage to get PAF (Personal Ancestry File) from FamilySearch working on Linux a couple of years ago using WINE.  It simply copied over files from C:\Program Files\FamilySearch.  Although it worked, it didn't look and feel the same as it did on Windows - but as it is free you might want to have a look at it.
