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.
