Gordon Bennett!, I'm really up to there with Linux today. Been trying to get Wine to run.....anything.  Why is it that a demo install on You Tube looks so straight forward, yet trying it myself doesn't.. On you tube...Click here to download...It downloads.  When I try the same I get told to something completely different resulting in achieving nothing.  The package downloaded from the Ubuntu repository appears to have loaded, but how do I get the described Windows emulation so I can run something?... I've tried so many things now as a result of searches in forums etc, I've finally given up. I know I want to elbow Windows, but it's nowhere near as bloody complicated to use.

I guess I should have expected the rest of the day to go bad, as this morning the Linux geek I'm friendly with in the local electronics outlet wrote a load of instructions down for me re using the terminal to download a particular program and it's dependencies.  When I came to read them this afternoon I realised they were in my shirt pocket.....Which was having it's final spin in the washing machine.  Bugger!. What a dipstick!.  Tomorrows another day lol.
