EasyBid is a Windows application, which can not be used as
a downloadable program on a computer with a Linux operating system
However... EasyBid OnLine can be used on Ubuntu Linux (and possibly other distributions)
via the RDP connection using 'Terminal Server Client'.
You will need either 'rdesktop' or 'Terminal Server Client'. If you do not
have either of these, you will need to download the repositories via the Synaptic Package
Manager or by using a Terminal Console. (Google how to do it!)
Problems have been encountered using the pre-installed versions of both 'rdesktop' and
'Terminal Server Client' on the native Xandros eee install.
The Print options at various bid stages (eg Leave forms) are written for Windows, but a hard copy can be obtained by using the 'Screen Grab' facility within the Linux operating system.
If you have any problems getting connected to EasyBid OnLine via Linux, please contact us and we will put you in touch with Matt, who
persevered and got it going and has offered his help to others.
