ExaGear Desktop is a commercial translator program from the ExaGear series of products developed by Eltechs. The first version was released in November 2014 and is designed to run using the x86_64 translator in ARM Windows applications (using Wine - a free implementation of the Windows API) in x86 Linux containers on ARM GNU/Linux platforms (Raspberry Pi, Odroid, etc.), using ptrace().

Instructions for installing on Debian-based distributions
Important! After February 28, 2019, it is impossible to buy products from the ExaGear series, please use other activation methods.
To run, it is desirable to have a Raspberry Pi 1,2,3 with Raspbian or 1 GB of RAM, ARM64, ARMv7 (hf, el) processor, Debian-based distribution (Ubuntu, Debian), and 2 GB of free space on internal storage. Support for graphics acceleration on Raspberry Pi 2/3 is declared, but it has not been verified and after installation according to this instruction, there will be only software rendering (LLVMpipe)
Check your processor architecture by typing
arch in the terminal
If the output is
arm64, then the arm64 version of ExaGear Desktop should be used. If the output shows the
armv7 architecture, then the armhf version of ExaGear Desktop should be used.
If the output contains
x86(or x86_64) architecture, then you don't need to use ExaGear Desktop, use VirtualBox, VMware to deploy virtual machines.
Download from the browser at this link archive with installation files.
Unpacking and installation
Unzip the archive with the command
unzip -d ExaGearDesktop ExaGearDesktop.zip, and go to the arm64 files folder:
cd ExaGearDesktop/arm64, and install the first package:
sudo dpkg - i exagear_3428-1_arm64.deb. If you get an error about missing dependencies, fix it with
sudo apt -f install -y. Install the second file:
exagear-dsound-server_010_arm64.deb, if you get an error about missing dependencies, fix it with
sudo apt -f install -y.
Change to the directory below (
cd ..) and install the latest file with the guest itself:
sudo dpkg -i exagear-guest-debian-9_3428_all.deb
Activation and verification
exagear command. If there is an error that the license file was not found, move the ubt_x32a32_al file (attached in the archive) to /opt/exagear/bin:
sudo cp ubt_x32a32_al /opt/exagear/bin/, and give the file permissions :
sudo chmod +x /opt/exagear/bin/ubt_x32a32_al.
Try starting ExaGear Desktop again. If there are no errors, run the
arch command, the architecture should be
i386. After that, run the command
sudo apt update, go to the directory with the unpacked archive and install libgl1-mesa-swx11 (included in the archive):
sudo dpkg -i libgl1-mesa-swx11_8.0.4- 0ubuntu0.7_i386.deb, if you get an error about missing dependencies, fix it with
sudo apt -f install -y
