    Has anyone got this working as a native Java app in Linux. I know I can use WINE, but I'd like to know if it's possible without. I haven't had time to try much yet but would rather avoid reinventing someone's wheel ;-)

    I just got it working on Ubuntu. Here are the steps I followed:

    1. Download the Mac nojre package, "WPBD 2013 (2nd Ed) Installation Image.dmg"

    2. Extract the image:
      aptitude install dmg2img p7zip-full
      dmg2img WPBD.dmg
      7z x WPBD.img

    3. Install the java libraries:
      aptitude install libappframework-java libjogl2-java javahelp2 libnb-java5-java libbetter-appframework-java libswingworker-java

    4. Run it using this command (modified to point to your extracted WPBD.jar):
      java -cp /usr/local/wpbd/Java/WPBD.jar:/usr/share/java/AppFramework.jar:/usr/share/java/jogl2.jar:/usr/share/java/jhall.jar:/usr/share/netbeans/java5/modules/org-netbeans-modules-form.jar:/usr/share/java/bsaf.jar:/usr/share/java/swing-worker.jar wpbd.WPBDApp
