    Decompression Software (Linux)

    Guys,

    just done a quick shifty on here looking for some advice on linux deco software. Didn't really turn up much tbh.

    Currently have Zplan with the windows Gui (Zplanner) extension which i've been using as a guide.

    As i've just blown away my Windows XP installation (gonna be 100% linux) i'd like something that'll run on Ubuntu. The guy that wrote Zplan has a product V-planner for linux but the blurb says that it's limited in Gas choice & features. I guess other options are going to be expensive.

    Anybody out there using something similar?

    Cheers

    Nick

    We run V-planner on Windows and on Ubuntu and as far as I am aware they are both the same. The limitation of gases & features is in the trial version, once you've paid for it they all appear.

    Ellie if that's true that's great news...

    guess i just read it wrong. Any comparisons against the old Z Plan?

    Cheers Guys for the links

    Its true, its true!

    I used Z-planner quite a while ago and from what I remember it was far less conservative on the number of deco stops you had to make. Other than that, it seemed fairly similar, but it was a while ago, so I could be wrong!

    i would have thought you can run almost any deco software using wine pretty easily

    I don't know what these are like but there's a couple for Linux in the list...

    I had V-planner on my sabayon install but it took a bit of fannying around to get it installed, and i can't remember how i did it which is why now I've got ubuntu i don't have v-planner installed any more.

    Saying that though, I'm fairly new to linux so if you're a bit more fluent than me you'll probably manage it.... and if you do PM me and tell me how!
