I know we probably will not see a linux version of this great app anytime soon.

I have switched over to Linux and gotten completely away from windows besides this program. Nothing even comes close.
I would pay again for a Linux version (hint Hint)

I only read comics on Android tablets/phone. Once a week i boot into my windows partition to sync new comics.

I have tried using virtual machines for comic rack but have issues when syncing with tablets.
(mostly being super slow)

I have tried Wine which I am not good with TBH.

I know there are a lot of threads about Linux versions. Does anyone have a good solution for Comic rack on linux in Wine or whatever. I am welling to try anything.

I just use for management and Syncing to Android app so reading wise I don't use.

I use Virtual Box with a Windows 7 VM on an Ubuntu 12.04 server. The database is part of the VM but the actual comics are on the linux server set to appear as a mapped drive on the VM. I keep database backups on the real server also.

Do you sync to a android device wired or wireless? That is the main problem I am having with comicrack in a virtualbox.

I use a windows VM as well, but my database is on my ext4 shared into windows. I only use comicrack to scrap and move my collection. The android connection is really slow in syncing so I manually move the issues onto my tablet and read them.

I would also pay (A LOT) for a linux version of comicrack!

yeah pretty much what i do, except the database on ext 4. What is the benefit of this?

Commictagger and Myalr are almost to the point they are as good for management but missing a lot also.

I like keeping track of what I have and haven't read yet which is main reason I haven't just switched to just dropping files on android. and I like how syncing optimizes the files.

But device sync in a VM is very slow and I haven't gotten wireless sync to work yet either.

So, how fast is the device sync in a non-vm for around 30 books? I sync to my iPad at least once a week over wireless and it seems fine. It takes between 5 and 10 minutes depending on the books. This seems OK to me. Not that slow. But I also have a pretty powerful server for the VM.

non vm sync is fast no problems can do 100 books in about 10 minutes.
in VM wired sync about about 5-10 minutes per book.

How did you set up a VM so you could do wireless sync? I have been unable to get wireless in VM to see my devices.

My VM has a static IP that is bridged, not NAT, so my iPad can see it.
