Title: CUEtools on linux?
Post by: itisljar on 2019-11-08 07:30:13
I know it is a long shot, and as I am not a programmer, I shouldn't complain for someone else not programmin'... but:
I am really interested in having tool like CUEtools in Linux. I don't really need GUI or ripper, just command line tool for checking files against AR and CTDB, correcting offset and errors if there is possibility, and converting into other formats.
I am not that new to Linux, am using it for years, just not as my primary OS; as I am getting older and not playing games so much anymore, I am thinking to migrate to Linux, but there are some tools that I will miss there.
SOMEONE: 'You can install wine and run them from there...'
Yeah, also, I can keep Windows, then. Also, I really dislike 'snap' software distributions, these are just signs of laziness, to make proper compiles, especially when these can and are usually automated.
So... old man ranting aside, are there already some tools that utilize CTDB and at least some of CUEtools possibilities? Or any plans to make linux versions of CUEtools, no GUI needed...?

They do work just fine under Wine and Wine is very good for running other software, so maybe you could give it a try.

I am more than happy to use more than one tool for the job, as long as I can acomplish what I want. I don't need KISS approach :) will try Flacon, it looks promising.
