Re: RENAMER Compatibility

ReNamer is only compiled for the Windows platform at the moment, but you can run it on Linux using various compatibility software, such as Wine, PlayOnLinux, etc.

Re: RENAMER Compatibility

I know it has been almost five years from your last answer to this post.

I am also a fan of your Renamer tool. However, I have switched to Ubuntu Linux several years ago and I am missing Renamer.

I know that you are developing your tools using Lazarus IDE (just like me!). So, it should not be very difficult to port your programs to Linux too.

Do you have any plan for this?

There is an ongoing effort to refactor and untangle features that require OS specific API.

It is already possible to build ReNamer on Linux, but some features are not ready yet because they require platform specific implementations.

In the meantime, Wine and PlayOnLinux do a pretty good job.
