SCS Tracker / DSP TNC - configuration using Wine

This is based on Fedora.


Configure Wine and the TNC

  • Add your account the dialout group.
    sudo usermod -a -G dialout <user>
  • Install wine.
    sudo dnf install wine
  • Download and extract SCS Tracker software, for example and TRConfig.exe.
    mkdir ~/Downloads/SCS
    mv TRConfig.exe  ~/Downloads/SCS
    cd SCS
    unzip ../
  • Run the software for the first time. Wine will other required software:
    wine TRConfig.exe

  • Exit TRConfig (No, then Abbrechen).
  • Lookup serial device (ttyUSB0 in this example):
    ls -l /dev/serial/by-id/*SCS*
    lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 13 Feb 11 11:36 /dev/serial/by-id/usb-SCS_SCS_Tracker___DSP_TNC_PTXZ6ZLZ-if00-port0 -> ../../ttyUSB0
  • Create a new symbolic link to ttyUSB0, for example com5:
    ln -s /dev/ttyUSB0 ~/.wine/dosdevices/com5
  • Edit the registry:
    vi ~/.wine/system.reg
    [Hardware\\Devicemap\\Serialcomm] 1231984861
  • Now you can start the software again and configure TRConfig using COM5.
