Re: Where is Wine?

thanks you 2. I now have wine installed. It's hard for me to tell what to install sometimes. Seems like lots of wine-things in synaptic.

What's the best way to tell if a similarly named package is related, required, conflicts or not?

Where is Wine?

I wanted to try installing a program in wine but it's not in the menus and if I select wine in Synaptic I get indications of busted references for other packages that have "wine" in their names, like libwine & libwine-bin.

how do I install Wine on MX14?

thanks
mike

Re: laptop wireless disabled after bootng

I just click on "Enable Wireless" and it turns on. Tested this laptop on a couple other distros and don't have the same problem. Not that big a deal, just annoying.

MX Rocks, anyway!

laptop wireless disabled after bootng

My hp nc8430 laptop has a wireless adapter that works fine. But, I have to enable it (wireless) after every boot.
The "edit Connections" dialog for this has the "Connect Automatically" box checked.

What am I missing?

Re: share files between MX14 and Win98se Virtualbox VM

Now just mount the file datatransfer.iso on the guest OS CD drive and launch the guest OS.


Now that is just brilliant!


thanks <joany!>
