Multicharts on Linux

Due to my private change from Win to Linux I'm just wondering if anybody has some experience with MC and Wine with Mono for Framework 4 on Linux. I guess there is no plan to produce something for Linux. Would be too bad to work with one extra computer just for Windows and MC.

Thank you.

@Antimatter

To plot OHLC via ADE_PlotOHLC makes sense if you want to plot OHLC-bars from a higher time frame only. So in your case "Weekly,Quarter,Month or Year"-Data only. Therefore you should insert ADE_SaveOHLC in the chart of the higher time frame first.

You need a FIX adapter provided from your broker. From my experience it's very expansive. Maybe your broker handles it different.

Hey TJ,

it's happening in all symbols I have. But I have figured out that it happens only if you change the style of the PlotStyle from "solid"-Line to "dotted"-line. If you change it back to "solid"-Line it works fine.

I will attach 2 screenshots.
