Have you heard of a package named jack? It’s a linux package that fits that bill.

Not really, he needs DAW, which is ProTools and main goal is compatibility i assume (since a lot of people in a field use it), it’s just popular…

But for personal use closest would be REAPER for Linux.

well apologies for the delayed response weekend time was offline playing games with my team.

well as I said I am a software engineer and my business has to do with apps and ict services for airspace, drones, satellite tech, we use MacOS and almost all of the apps are build by us with us and most of them are private non gov apps, don’t fell comfortable due to privacy and corporate policy to disclose more information about it on a forum, to protect my business and this community as well.

Have in mind I am using 1 year old MacBookPro without the MacOS for eOS, even certain “hackintosh” = MacOS on non mac hardware, setups work but not all of the apps work.

post-edit: I am back at work on sunday if I got time will try the apps if they work will write back.
if the LIST idea is not possible send my message title: MacOS App Test, and just name of app and link.

Thanks. This question was just for my personal information. I know my son - he’ll stick with his Mac and ProTools. After all, that’s the program he uses to make his living!

jack is Linux native, don’t test it :upside_down_face:

I assume you replied to the message above talking about audio tools or some other mac app.

Is Jack same as Darling, lets you run MacOS apps on Linux? if so please provide a link.

No, you can ignore it, it was just little misunderstanding. :slight_smile:

For clarification:
@Elloquin offered jack by mistake to replace ProTools (DAW) on Linux, but jack is an audio server, used for pro-audio needs / audiophiles on Linux. It’s just different things :wink:

I run a i5 haswel with Catilina It not a case of things don’t work its a case of setting mac correctly with the clover configuration and a few non apple apps, choosing a compatible vid card some work really well with apples config others are really bad, sound drivers can be configured with a 3rd party app as can the non apple mouse,

when I tried hackintosh many years back one day it all works and after an upgrade I need to spend 5-10 h debugging and re configuring and reading forum posts and trying them out. I can confirm based on experience that gpu makes a difference, with only Intel uhd all works with AMD on even on MacOS on my work PC sometimes has problems with some apps, that is the reason I stick only with intel gpu.

for my business and work related projects I stricky use MacOS and after 25 years probably always will.
as I said before as Linux enthusiast endeavouros is my passion project and I enjoy my journey / voyage.

I have run mine for more than 4 years seen many updates and upgrades its been fault free, I even use a Nvidia GPU as i wrote earlier not all work so you have to stick with the one that do,
AS i also forgot to say you have to set hackintosh up correctly in the 1st place clover takes care of setting up and now you can even use a AMD CPU a lot of work has gone into clover over the years,

you are probably right since I am just a Linux enthusiast and not an everyday Linux pro user.

I use MacOS on Mac Hardware and never had problem in the past 25 years, I played with hackingtosh very shortly less then one week maybe one month. I believe this converstaion is out of the scope of this post, we can continue to talk if you like via message, but the scope of the post is another topic.

never used ADM cpu so I cannot say if it is true or not, I even switch off my AMD graphics on my mac.

I need MacOS and Mac Hardware for my business and I don’t risk with experimenting on the topic.

I was just giving a comparison and explaining that i use Linux + DARLING ability to run MacOS apps on Linux, but my test PC is MacBook Pro, just FYI for anyone interested in what I am testing.

*) XCode worked the best from all tested apps, due to my work related experience I tested it really good.
The version I was using was XCode 11.6 (11E708) from 2020/07/15 and 12.0 beta 4 from 2020/08/04 including the new Swift version 5.2.5 from 2020/08/05 I have not tried the Swift preview version 5.3
Have in mind I tested in using intel hardware. cpu intel and the same graphical card UHD from intel.

*) I tried a trail version without registering it to adobe, kernel 5.4 did not work only 4.14 and 4.19 latest 4.0 Kernels of LTS. The application works from what I can see but I have zero experience how to use it and did not have any test file, so it seems to work, but I cannot confirm it the app is 100% functional.
for XCode tried kernel 4.4 4.9 4.14 4.19 5.4 all LTS, even worked with 5.6, 5.7 and 5.8 kernels result in core.dump based on the log at least.

*) The applications start only with kernel 5.4 but if I try to load a test file it crashes, I would not recommend using it. I downloaded the demo version maybe the full version works better.
The 4.0 kernel result in core.dump at least according to the core.dump file log.

Running MacOs apps in EOS? It’s either a joke or a miracle.

real project that works great https://www.darlinghq.org/ The Darling Project: Running macOS apps on Linux! - YouTube
probably similar solution to wine for windows and anbox for android apps in linux.

FYI not all apps work even on Macbook pro hardware with linux and takes time to set it up correctly.
On the plus side the project is active has good guides and helpful community.

It’s a miracle that sounds like a joke. But wait, don’t they all?
