RE: [K12OSN] Accelerated Reader - Crossover Office?

I have it running and can use the sample data.  I just cannot change the
data path to point to the real data on our network.  The drives are mounted
and the data is there.

Where are the AR files installed and can we configure a text file to point
to the database?

This is something we should try to address, as Renaissance seems unable or 
unwilling to deal with this.  I too have been for the most part 
unsuccessful at getting AR, StarREAD, etc to run under X, and this is 
probably the biggest roadblock I have to deploying LTSP.  Yeah the AR and 
STAR security model is a complete joke (I'd love some quality time alone in 
a room, no witnesses, with the moron who designed that piece of cr^p), but 
the teachers love it, and taking it away would be political suicide.

Ideally some kind of rpm or easy to run setup script to tweak wine, copy 
the appropriate files from the data directory, and handle mounting the data 
directory.  I would be happy to work with anyone interested in developing 
and packaging this as a solution.

Of course, if anyone has already solved this and has this working, please 
share with the rest of us.  It would probably open the floodgates for 
districts waiting to at least try linux desktops.
