MT4 with RangeBars on Linux, notes by Marcos S.

Here are some notes to consider.

The environment:

-Ubuntu Linux 12.04 – With 1gb RAM on a VPS w/ OpenVZ

-Kernel: Linux 2.6.32-042stab061.2 #1 SMP Fri Aug 24 09:07:21 MSK 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

-Graphical Environment  - LXDE  Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment

-Wine and Crossover Windows Emulator  - It emulates the windows environment allowing to run certain applications. I installed both following the guides I found on the net, nothing in particular.  With both CrossOver and Wine I had successful results with your indicator so far. On  Both programs I installed Metatrader 4 following the procedures from the CrossOver website and  On Wine I followed the various guides that were on the net, you need to adjust the .dll and the fonts but that is just to make sure Metatrader 4 works perfectly on wine.

Plugin Instalation:

It is a straight forward process, you download the plugin into the right directory as root user and voila.

On Wine:

# cd /root/.wine/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/[Your Metatrader 4 Client]/experts/indicators
# wget http://forex.ovo.cz/downloads/rb/RangeBar_e.ex4

On CrossOver:

# cd /root/.cxoffice/MetaTrader 4/drive_c/Program Files/[Your Metatrader 4 Client]/experts/indicators
# wget http://forex.ovo.cz/downloads/rb/RangeBar_e.ex4

The plugin will unload the other libraries automatically with no hassle. After I ran the indicator on one chart I wasn’t able to load it on a second chart, to do that I had to go to my indicator folder and change the permissions on the files to 777(write,read and execute bits) with:

# cd /root/.cxoffice/MetaTrader 4/drive_c/Program Files/[Your Metatrader 4 Client]/experts/libraries/
# chmod 777 *     

This will change all of the files in this directory giving all the permissions to everyone to access.

Known issues so far:

Sometimes(rarely) when I tried to load the indicator, I did it about 60-70 times on different charts so far, the indicator will fail to load but if I close the metatrader platform with the chart open and the indicator attached to it, after Metatrader 4 loads back again, it will work.
