Using FSCapture from Linux

On Linux I have some Windows programs that I miss, but this will work for any Windows program.

The FSCapture program for instance.

Here is how I organized my system so I can use FSCapture.

  1. Install  Wine open source software for running Windows applications on Linux (and also other operating systems). You can download and install Wine through the terminal.

  2. Download FSCapture, portable exe file. You can download it from here.

  3. Copy FSCapture.exe to the /opt folder. For instance to the /opt/fscapture/

  4. Create a symbolic link

    ln -s /opt/fscapture/FSCapture.exe /usr/bin/fscapture

    Now you can call FSCapture every time from the terminal. Just run fscapture.
