SierraChart on Ubuntu/Wine

Hi All

I'll share my experience using SC on Ubuntu/Wine step by step.

- How to create bootable USB stick:

-- on Windows

--- using LinuxLive USB Creator

--- using SuSe Studio ImageWriter, type * to see *.iso


-- on *nix

as root: dd bs=512K if=ubuntu.iso of=/dev/sdc

where /dev/sdc is a USB stick dev

check :~$ dmesg



- We need a good 2D graphics performance so:

-- get rid of unity and copmiz

:~$ sudo apt-get install gnome-session-fallback

then reboot and log in using Gnome Fallback (no effects)

or use Untiy 2D for 12.04 because of this bug

--install proprietary video driver

--- as described for nvidia or ati

--- for newest versions Ubuntu Software Center -> Edit -> Software Sources -> Additional Drivers



- We can also tweak an SSD usage /optional/

At this moment SierraChart is the WinApp only so we need the latest stable ver of Wine

:~$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa

:~$ sudo apt-get update

:~$ sudo apt-get install wine1.6

:~$ winecfg

choose Windows 7

download and install Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86)

:~$ wine vcredist_x86.exe

install Non-CLR SierraChart version

-- uncheck Microsoft Redistributable Package

-- uncheck Notepad ++

...

In order to make SC more cute just put MSS font /Microsoft Sans Serif - attached, unzip it / into

/home/$user$/.wine/drive_c/windows/Fonts/

Rename .wine to /4ex/ sc_wine

make the link:

:~$ ln -sf /home/$user$/sc_wine/ .wine

Now one could use multiple copies of Wine for testing etc

Or use wineprefix

Or use codeweavers.com


In order to build custom studies we need an IDE and compiler.

:~$ sudo apt-get install geany gcc-mingw32

Set the environment for Geany

Build -> Set Build Commands

in my case:

Working Directory: /home/ganz/.wine/drive_c/SierraChart/ACS_Source/

Compile: i686-w64-mingw32-g++ -march=i686 -mtune=i686 -O2 -shared -static -static-libgcc -static-libstdc++ -s -fno-rtti -fno-exceptions -w -c "%f"

Build: i686-w64-mingw32-g++ -march=i686 -mtune=i686 -O2 -shared -static -static-libgcc -static-libstdc++ -s -fno-rtti -fno-exceptions -w "%f" -o /home/ganz/.wine/drive_c/SierraChart/Data/"%e".dll

It was tested with:

- IQFeed

- Rithmic/Zen-fire

- CTS T4 FIX

It should work with:

- IB

- TT

- AMP/TTNET

any .Net API /services will not work.

the issue

be careful with Trade -> Attach Trade Window to Chart for a chart and a TradeDOM

it doesn't work - do not detach it because of Wine issue


make a copy of a chart in order to attach

hi

i'm using linux since 1997 and was very surprised it was not used by retail users in the business: for data mining, testing, trading and so on

it was the definite sign for me about the nature of the business: this is absolutely unserious, gaming stuff as windoze gamez or tv showz - show biz

imho

I prefer Linux. But after multiple attempts every few years I resort back to Windows. This is almost all due to poor multi monitor support for six monitors on a single desktop.

I've tried everything multiple times...

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Hi Mike

I've got no solution for this out of the box because my hrdwr setups are two displays per desktop

Did you try a custom config using xrandr?
