thanks for the extra information.
It is a real pity they stopped the development, I think it would be worth it for them. For sure there are less linux devs in this field.
Still my question is, how can you activate the plugin. I tried with the free trial option, but it does not work for me.
Best to do as I did and that was contacting them. I think we have the devs.. We just need to focus on Linux more as I'll see devs make an app for Linux then it's migrated to the other platforms and it then feels like linux takes a back seat.
You'll go to a project site and see under supported platforms all of a sudden that Linux is last on the list.
Things like that alone if I was a manufacturer of plugins for the other platforms and was thinking of making it available for LInux and see that apps and plugins developed for linux now supporting the other platforms and Linux is last in the list of supported platforms, my first take is that this dev ain't getting the support from the community or not enough users on Linux.
I this the bast way to support Linux and to get devs of other platforms to continue making stuff for Linux is to show confidence and belief in our own thing and make it a privilege to be part.
Sorry for kinda hijacking this thread but it's in respond to what you said above. These devs making stuff for the 3 platforms for free will burnout. I've been using Linux since 1998 and I've seen my share of great apps being dev'd on Linux, then over to the other 2 and then project dies. Hmm, doing for free, users become demanding from the other 2 platforms and Linux, forgetting that some poor dude is doing this for free on his/her own time while balancing a life so eventually one burns out... project dies.
BUT DO CONTACT SONARWORKS. They're quite helpful.. While at it, beg for them to continue.. Maybe if they see more than just me, they may just hire someone to work on the Linux part.
