You are right about the time it takes to get it running in Linux. Had to resort to PlayOnLinux and some added libraries which I found were needed from this posting:

Default Re: Running Estlcam under Linux using wine
I got it running on my Laptop, seems to be running fine
Here are some hints for installing it under playonlinux
My laptop also had "POL_Install_corefonts" installed, but when I attempted to verify the installation procedure here on my stationary pc it caused all text to look like it was written in Greek.
Seems to work just fine without the core fonts.
This works for getting it running but since I wouldn't have direct control of the shapeoko on my workshop pc, I am stopping the Linux attempt with EstlCam. I am sure there is someone with a lot of Linux smarts who will be able to bridge the gap. Until then I will self debate whether or not to re-install windows on my workshop pc. Love your program just hate to have to wander from computer to computer to fix my errors in projects I am working on.
