To help organize the forum this thread this topic has been given it’s own thread. Important information to keep in mind when reading this thread:
There is no Linux version of EndNote, there are only Macintosh and Windows versions.
While it is possible to run EndNote on Linux using WINE, this is not a supported way to run EndNote and Thomson Reuters will not be able to provide technical support.
You will not be able to use Cite While You Write with Open Office.
That said, here are the steps I used to install EndNote X2 for Windows on Ubuntu 8.04:
While there is no Linux native version of EndNote, it is possible to run EndNote X2 using the latest version of Wine. Note that running EndNote on Linux is not supported and there are some compatibility issues, Unicode characters for example will not be displayed. That said, these are the steps I used to install EndNote X2 on Ubuntu:
You will need a recent version of Wine to install EndNote X2 on Linux. Most distributions do not have the latest versions of Wine available as a package. These steps will make sure that you have one of the latest versions available. If you already have wine version 1.0.0 or higher you can skip to the Installing EndNote X2 section.
- Go to “Applications > Accessories > Terminal”
Enter the following to download and install Wine: (see http://winehq.org/site/download-deb )
wget -q http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/387EE263.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -
sudo wget http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/sources.list.d/hardy.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/winehq.list
sudo apt-get update
If you already had a version of Wine installed do the following:
sudo apt-get remove wine
Enter the following to continue the install:
sudo apt-get install wine
Configure Wine to use Windows 2000, enter the following to configure Wine:
You should see version wine-1.1.6 or higher
This part is optional, but recommended. There is a bug in Wine that will cause EndNote to crash when you highlight text, this step will resolve the issue. You can view the bug report here ( http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12075 ) . There is a script by Dan Kegel that will resolve the issue ( http://wiki.winehq.org/winetricks ) . In the terminal window you would need to enter the following:
sudo apt-get install cabextract
chmod +x winetricks
./winetricks riched20 riched30
Once Wine has been installed, the installation of EndNote is not that different than installing it on a Windows computer. You use Wine to run the Setup.exe installer.
Insert the CD
Go to “Applications > Accessories > Terminal”
Change the directory to your CD drive, on my machine that was /media/cdrom0
Run the installer:
If you would like an EndNote shortcut/launcher on your desktop, then you can use the following to copy the icon. Note that you would need to change /media/cdrom0 to your CD drive if it is not cdrom0, you would also change “Program Files” if you are on a non-English system, i.e. “C:\Programme\EndNote X2”:
cp /media/cdrom0/autorun.ico “
wine winepath -u "C:\Program Files\EndNote X2"”
wine “C:\Program Files\EndNote X2\EndNote.exe”
- Click on “Open an existing library” and navigate to “C:\Windows\Profiles\All Users\Documents\EndNote\Examples\Sample_Library.enl”
