How come there's no driver for Express Scribe Foot Pedal in Linux,
specifically in Ubuntu 6.10? Anyone who knows how to convert the .dll
below to .so? Can a Crossover or Wine emulator do something abt this?
Is there already a script or could you help me make a script on this?
Kindly read the reply to my message below for more info.
I'm sure that Wine (and therefore CrossOver) could provide a solution. However, someone has to be motivated to make that happen. Either a talented volunteer programmer, or the company that makes it, or someone who's willing to pay a lot of money to motivate a programmer to see it happen. That hasn't happened :-/.

Because no one's written one. :(
You're best bets are to contact the company and see if they're at all interested in providing Linux support or to contact the Linux Driver Project (see http://www.linuxdriverproject.org/twiki/bin/view for the details). Either you or the company may have to provide a unit or two for the developer(s) to work with.
